There is no questioning the fact that this winter is one of the coldest and snowiest on record around the country, and Punxsutawney Phil says it isn’t close to being over yet.
The Federal Government has declared a snow emergency in Washington, D.C., closed down its offices for today as winter storm “Octavia” barrels through, as the Weather Channel describes, while the New England cities, particularly Boston, are reaching record levels of snow with weeks left to keep building.

Luckily for you, we have the fleet you need to make it through the icy streets and snow-blocked intersections, getting you to work safely, on time and in extreme comfort.
Check out our suggested replacements for your current snowmobile below, and let us know in the comments if can think of any cars well-suited for a #snowday.
2012 Lamborghini Aventador
Best Car for Racing Skiers and Snowboarders Down the Slopes
Lamborghini’s Winter Accademia: Ultimate Ice Driving Experience is precisely what it sounds like it is. Participants in the 2015 event are able to learn how to best handle ice and snow driving in an Aventador LP 700-4 or Huracan LP 610-4, either of which is more than capable of handling the slippery terrain. Still don’t believe an exotic can handle the snow? Check out this video of a Gallardo tearing up a ski slope, and then make up your mind.
2014 Ferrari FF
Best Car for a Snowy Weekend
The first Ferrari to feature four-wheel drive, the FF is your perfect pony for a snowy getaway. Simply flip the Manettino Dial to “Snow,” and 20 percent of the torque is set to the front wheels, keeping all four in place on the ground.
2011 Conquest Knight Armored Luxury SUV 4×4
Best Car for Worst Conditions
It’s big, it’s heavy and it’s powerful enough to keep moving forward even when every other car on the road has slid to a complete stop.
2014 Bentley Continental GT
Best Car for the City Driver
There’s a reason Bentley hosts their “Power on Ice” event and driving lessons every year – their cars are some of the best for handling snowy days. With the assistance of all-wheel drive, your Bentley can correct oversteer or fishtailing in slippery conditions. When paired with a set of snow tires, this car will be able to transport you through the city with comfort, elegance and ease.
2015 Cadillac Escalade Luxury
Best Car for Commuting from City to Suburbs
It’s the car that has it all for the person who needs a safe and comfortable commute during the winter. Zone out with your music while listening to the 16-speaker sound system, always know where you are with the navigation system and compass, easily keep your eyes on the road ahead with heads-up display and roll over big chunks of ice thanks to the extra 6″ of space from the lift kit.
2014 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged
Best Car for Getting the Kids to School On Time
Permanent four-wheel drive, blind spot monitoring, terrain response and a massage feature for the climate controlled front seats will all let you relax a little more during the morning rush out the door.
1995 Hummer H1 Supercharged Diesel
Best Car for Traversing Blizzards
Though this Hummer H1 comes with 37″ Humvee auto-inflate tires, you won’t want to take the track kit off until spring’s arrival has been confirmed. The tracks manage to reduce the car’s PSI impact to below that of a human foot, meaning you can drive over soft, powdery slow or stay gripped in icy conditions without any issue.
2015 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS
Best Car for Having Fun in an Empty (and Professionally Supervised) Parking Lot
Throw a set of snow tires on this puppy, set up your team of professional supervisors and find a wide open parking lot for this 911. With a 3.9-liter flat-six bolted in the rear and a low wide stance, you’ll keep your weight on the rear tires and stability under control while slipping sideways. Just be sure to take all the necessary precautions first.
2015 Maserati Quattroporte S Q4
Best Car for City Slush
Even after the snow has stopped falling, the black ice has melted and the salt is doing its job, it can be too terribly easy to skid out in a slush pile. Fortunately, the 2015 Quattroporte S Q4 offers Maserati’s sophisticated Q4 four-wheel drive system, which varies torque between all four wheels after analyzing road conditions and your driving style, meaning even the slushiest days won’t make you fishtail.
2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Full Metal Jacket
Best Car for Hail Storms
The Full Metal Jacket from Starwood Customs features premium protective complete with Kevlar Fiber, meaning you won’t have to worry one bit about damage from those chunks of ice falling from the sky.
