AddThanksgiving Travel To Be Complicated By Rain, Snow

Some Thanksgiving travelers along the East Coast were heading out early because of a forecast calling for a nor'easter that will bring rain and snow.

18Ferrari testing 458 successor in the snow?

It may not seem so long ago that Ferrari introduced the 458 Italia. But it's been on the market a solid 5 years since its launch in 2009, which makes it not only the oldest model in the company's lineup, but one of the oldest in its segment, the Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 650S just having been launched in the past couple of months. So while a solitary Ferrari playing in the snow might otherwise seem like little more than an unlikely place for it to be, its chronology suggests the crew from

7Aston Martin brings ice driving program to America [w/video]

With between four and six hundred horsepower channeled to the rear wheels from a V8 or V12 engine mounted up front, an Aston Martin – any Aston Martin, really – might not seem like the smartest choice for driving on ice and snow. But that can also make it the most fun, and the most enlightening to experience.

35Suzuki Jimny displays Samurai spirit in Japanese snowstorm

Say what you will about its smallest SUVs, but you have to hand it to Suzuki: the likes of the Samurai, Sidekick and Vitara were doing the little-sport-ute-that-could thing long before most of the rest of the industry caught on. And the formula remains relevant enough that Suzuki is still selling the same basic Samurai overseas as the Jimny.

397Man Shoots Out Truck Windshield After Row Over Snow

One man took his winter weather frustration a little too far, shooting out the windshield of a front-end loader while it worked to clear the parking lot of an apartment complex in Pittsfield Township, Mich.

56At least 13 deaths now blamed on southern snow storm [w/video]

We reported yesterday on the couple inches of snow that paralyzed the transportation networks of southern cities like Atlanta, which are ill-equipped to handle any measure of snow, and now the results of the chaos are beginning to roll in: 13 people are dead across the region, nine of whom were in traffic accidents.

103Southern snow leaves motorists stranded [w/video]

Living in the North means learning to deal with seasonal snow fall. It means practicing in an empty parking lot when the first few inches fall. Equipping snow tires and knowing just how quickly one can safely go when the white stuff starts falling is seemingly ingrained into the DNA of Yankee drivers. That, along with our fleets of snow plows and salt trucks, makes it easy to shake our heads and chuckle when our Southern friends get a dusting of powder that shuts down entire towns. What's happen

11Red Bull Frozen Rush puts off-road trucks on ski slopes [w/videos]

From the deserts of Baja to the hills of Pikes Peak to stadiums across the country, there's any number of places you can go to watch off-road racing trucks do their thing. But with Frozen Rush, Red Bull has skipped past all of them and headed to the ski hill.

24Smart snowplows could mean safer winter roads

With winter in full swing across a number of northern states and many Americans driving home after spending the holidays with family, the icy and snowy roads are being given no shortage of attention. But a new plan from the National Center for Atmospheric Research and funded by the US Department of Transportation is given authorities new abilities when it comes to combatting dangerous winter roads.

48Jordan's King Abdullah II helps push a car out of the snow

To say that Abdullah ibn Al-Hussein comes from a prestigious family would be one heck of an understatement. The current ruler of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Abdullah II comes from the house of Hashem that claims its descendency from Mohammed himself. His ancestors have sat on the thrones of Transjordan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and parts of Saudi Arabia. The bottom line is that, whatever "it" is, Abdullah has people to do it for him.

71Oregon football star to miss Alamo Bowl for snowball fight targeting motorists

With winter kicking off, people across the country are coming to grips with that horrible white substance we call snow. And while we, as motorists, might be sick of the stuff already, some college students in Oregon saw it as an opportunity to have some fun, although as things are wont to do in college, matters got out of hand rather quickly.

13Mitsubishi Evo snow frolic caught by aerial camera

Guido Tschugg is a professional mountain biker and a Red Bull-sponsored athlete in downhill and four-cross. He's also a fan of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and drifting in the snow, and with the help of filmmaker Mario Feil and drone videographers airv8, the rally car and the powder are combined to glorious effect.

8Nissan Juke-R goes ice fishing in Norway

There's something about the boffins over at Nissan – particularly those working at its racing headquarters in the UK. We're not quite sure what it is. Oh, right: they're bonkers. Absolutely off their rockers, in the best way possible. How else would you explain the decision to take an entry-level crossover and swap out its powertrain for that of a supercar?

142There's only one thing to do when the Nürburgring is covered in snow...

There's something undeniably enthralling about watching a vehicle perform outside of its intended element. It's why we love seeing semi tractors weaving their way around a road course and rally cars bashing down a rock-strewn desert path. It's also why watching a Formula car dash around the snow-covered Nürburgring paints a big ol' smile on our faces.

11Ferrari F1 launch snowed out in Maranello

If you grew up in a sufficiently northern climate, you probably remember staying eagerly tuned in to the local radio or television station, praying on a cold day that enough snow would have fallen for them to close the schools. Well that's what's happened in the Modena area in northern Italy, but while the school children may be celebrating in their jammies, the racing fans among them will be disappointed to learn that the snow has caused the launch of the latest Scuderia Ferrari single-seater t

48Watch as a Ferrari FF goes rallying in the snow

Ferrari has had its share of drivers who knew their way around a snowy rally course. Gilles Villeneuve, for example, was famous for the drifting techniques he picked up racing snowmobiles in his native Quebec. And Kimi Raikkonen, for another, left the Scuderia for the World Rally Championship where he exercised his Finnish roots. Thing is, both of these top drivers were gone from the Ferrari roster long before the company introduced the FF as its first all-wheel-drive car.

724Why are snowy roads like these never closed?

Another winter naturally means more videos of snowy carnage, as Mother Nature teams up with an inclined road to befuddle even those drivers who are used to such conditions. This time the location is Bountiful, Utah on January 21, where a slick bit of downhill becomes an automotive Slip-n-Slide.

51Missouri rolls out mother of all snow removal equipment, the TowPlow

If you happen to call the East Coast home, there's a good chance you recently woke up to plenty of winter weather. Given that we're facing down a few long months of snow and ice ahead, we thought we'd take the time to explore one of the more interesting innovations in snow removal.

45The other way to get snow off your car

There are plenty of automotive phenomena we don't entirely understand. Take sound system competitions, for example. We just never saw the practical use for a stereo worth more than your vehicle, especially when the largest fraction of that investment gets channeled into bowel-wobbling subwoofers. That is, until now. The owner of this particular Pontiac Grand Prix has found a unique way to shed snow from his car in the winter. Instead of standing in the cold with a brush and scraper, he simply cr
