Guys, I live in Chicago and we can get some good size snow in the winter. How would this RWD speed demon drive in the snow? My 2011 Cady CTS Coupe has done well two winters in a row but it is AWD.

Thanks!

I have a V6S in the Boston area, and I plan to store it for the winter. It does have a snow mode for the traction control, but I think it'd be pretty bad. Plus, I don't want to subject it to all the salt and sand on the roads. It has low clearance (<6"), so that would be an issue too.

Makes sense. Thanks DJS!
I was hoping to avoid buying a winter car but commute and winter conditions might force me.

Since the V6 S has a limited slip you will get power to one wheel, IMHO I think the V8 would be better in the snow due to it's more advance electronic differential with clutches.

Be very careful you can't use normal chains you need the weird jag snow sock. See http://www.jaguarusa.com/assets/ftype_SpecsDownload.pdf page 9 - and this really doesn't look like it give you a lot of traction - plus with the low clearance - you have all the makings of getting stuck.
