The guys over at Jalopnik’s Black Flag spotted this awesome, but short bit of driving footage, as 2013/2014 WRC world champ Sébastien Ogier tests out his VW Polo on some deliciously icy mountain roads.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Goes Ice Drifting

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Goes Ice Drifting
With much of the Northern Hemisphere covered in snow this time of year, it’s no wonder so many of the car videos showing up on the Internet these days involve driving on ice and snow. And while it’s probably advisable that your daily winter driver is some sort of sturdy 4×4 or at least an AWD, there’s nothing quite so fun as a high torque rear wheel-drive car for slipping around if you’ve got a safe place to do it in.
