+1: my C6 Corvette Z06, whose tires are wide enough that the car seemed 
barely to leave tracks in the snow the one time I had to drive it home after 
an unpredicted snowfall while I was at the office! Floats like a butterfly.

In the dry, though, it's capable of truly scary feats of longitudinal and 
lateral acceleration. Stings like a Z.
