Ever wanted to know what it’s like to drive an Aston Martin in the snow? Yup, thought so. Well, today’s your lucky day.
Doug DeMuro, Plays With Cars writer and general legend, took his Aston out for a spin days after the Gods dumped piles of the white stuff on pretty much everywhere.
Doug decided to put the car through four tests to see how it would cope.
Test 1: Snow Plow
Doug tests how effective it is as a snow plow. Answer: Er, not so great.
Test 2: Acceleration
Doug checks how good the Aston is at accelerating on ice. Answer: Er…
Test 3: Handling
Doug puts the Aston through its paces round a bend. Answer: There’s a trend here.
Test 4: Braking
Doug tries the Aston at exceptionally high speeds (relative to standing still) and tests its stopping capability. Answer: Yup, you guessed it.
As an added bonus, he also demonstrates how to use a tripod as a shovel. Now that’s something we’ve never seen before.
