Driving a Porsche 918 Spyder anywhere would be an awesome time for pretty much everyone.

The car is wearing snow tires with claws: a set of 6mm spikes protrude from the rubber, which certainly helps the powerful Porsche gain traction. Still, it's ice, which means the tail is going to hang out and we assume massive smiles are spreading across the face of driver and passenger.

Now, as fun as that may be we know first hand that you don't need the spikes. Take a powerful, rear-wheel-drive exotic machine with good snow tires, and the world is your wintery white oyster.
