With snow and ice looking to make mountain passes hard to reach until spring settles in, the Drivetribe’s Henry Catchpole thought to try his luck and make one last run towards the mountains in the Audi R8 Spyder.
While Catchpole does his best to romanticize a connection between supercars and mountain roads, it is hard to deny the effects of this V10-powered Audi R8 Spyder, the car that genuinely looks at home on these snowy passes.
When you have got 540 PS and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque going to all four wheels, you will feel more confident driving on cold, slippery surfaces, than you would in other, the rear-wheel drive supercars.
The Drivetribe editor concludes by saying that he can’t think of the better car for this type of road than the Audi R8.
According to him it’s got everything from the braking power, to acceleration, grip, looks and in case of the Audi R8 Spyder, more freedom to observe your surroundings.
Think of this trip (or any other similar one) as being the relaxing long-distance cruise with a bit of fun on the side. Maybe the Audi R8 Spyder truly is perfect for those.
