As we head towards the second half of February without having had a real winter here in the Midwest, we'll admit to being ticked off. Those Blizzaks we bought for our long-term Mini Countryman? We haven't had much chance to put them to use. Nor have we had any occasion to enjoy the singular pleasure of driving a massively overpowered sports car on an icy road, enjoying every fishtail, opposite-lock correction and powerslide, all while traveling under the legal speed limit, of course.

So what do we do to console ourselves? Watch videos on YouTube like this one, featuring the KTM X-Bow doing a little ice racing with an accompanying motorcycle/quad tandem. We love that this X-Bow's owner is out getting down and dirty in the cold – and that he's willing to pull his buddies on a tube behind his race car.

      Nobody said that it wasn't good in the snow.

      Almost as much fun as an F1 car with snows on the Nordschleife....

      If I had one of those I would be pulling my friends behind it for sure

      Definitely second guessing my decision to purchase winter tires for my GTI. The few times it has snowed here in Metro Detroit, it feels like they didn't even get a chance to properly stretch their legs.

      If I recall correctly, more than 6 months ago Top Gear magazine did a review of the X-Bow in the snow - and found it to be excellently fun, if only a bit nippy (no pun intended) in the corners. A KTM X-Bow being good in snow then, is rather old news.

      "We love that this X-Bow's owner is out getting down and dirty in the cold – and that he's not willing to pull his buddies on a tube behind his race car." Hmm... I just watched the video and it appears he is willing to pull his buddies on a tube behind his race car.
