5 Cars You Need To Survive The Weekend's Winter Apocalypse

East Coasters, it'll take more than snow to stop these beasts.

As of writing this, there’s a major snowstorm attacking the Mid-Atlantic region of the US. From the looks of it, motorists are having trouble driving through a few inches of snow, despite having large SUVs, cars with four-wheel drive and snow trucks salting the streets. To help the incompetent drivers in any way possible, we have come up with a list of five cars that should help them get through this blizzard. Without further ado, let’s get to the five cars that will laugh in the face of inclement weather and help his poor saps drive around in some snow.

If people can't get through a few inches of snow with SUVs, there’s not much we can say than buy Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1977 Mercedes-Benz Unimog. The car is street legal and can tackle a lot more than a few feet of snow. With its 6.4-liter turbocharged diesel engine and massive Michelin XZL 445/64 tires, the Unimog can get through the worst weather imaginable. Before Jeremy Clarkson got the boot, he took the Hennessey VelociRaptor through some of Canada’s toughest terrain. Even after destroying its front tires, the pickup truck managed to get through a lot more than a couple feet of snow. Besides being able to tackle anything, the truck has sports car-like performance.

For drivers that are truly afraid of some snow, there’s the Aton Impusle Viking 2992. It’s an emergency rescue vehicle that will not only get you through some snow, but will happily swim right through lakes. Sometimes tanks are overrated.

Some may claim that driving a supercar in wintery conditions is a terrible idea, but we’ve seen everything from Lamborghini Gallardos to Audi R8s traverse snowy roads. All-wheel-drive and snow tires for the win.

Don’t want a massive truck, then try these sedans on for size. We’ve seen Subaru WRXs and Audi S4s not only get through an amazing amount of snow, but the cars have also helped others get unstuck. AWD and snow tires are a great combination.
