A Koenigsegg in winter tires can handle a snow storm in the Swiss Alps. Good to know.
Usually we bitch and complain when owners of supercars lock their precious rides away in the garage. That is until winter hits. Snow, salt and freezing temperatures do not discriminate. They massacre any and all cars foolish enough (or forced to) hit the road. That’s why it was so shocking to see this video from YouTuber TheStradman. The unemployed Lamborghini Gallardo owner was hanging out in Switzerland when he got word that the owner of the Koenigsegg Agera RS “ML” was planning a trip into Italy…over the Swiss Alps in winter.
Joining the Agera RS ML on the drive is a Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer. Unfortunately TheStradman’s Gallardo was left back at home, which meant that he had to follow the two-car convoy like a dutiful puppy in a Skoda rental car.
Once the Koenigsegg makes its way up into the mountains things begin to get hairy. There are no crazy close calls with snowbanks or near-misses involving snowplows. Rather, the “hairiness” we’re referring to involves single-lane roads covered in snow. These conditions are enough to make some drivers sweat. We can’t imagine how the owner of this Agera RS was feeling when it came time to slowly round a snow-covered corner or pass a snowplow. Fortunately he had Pirelli Sottozero winter tires on so it's not like this guy came unprepared for the weather. If you’re afraid to take your precious German luxury car or American muscle car out for a winter spin watch this video and reevaluate your life choices.
