Road to Snowhere

Kathryn Quinn

This driver was definitely feeling flaky after his 70,000 GBP, eight-litre supercar was trapped overnight in a freak snowstorm in the Swiss Alps.

His Dodge Viper soft-top - which can do 0-60mph in just 3.4 seconds - skidded as he tried to take a bend in Schwagalp and ended up stuck in a deep snowdrift.

Weathermen say up to five inches of snow had fallen overnight when only hours earlier it had been like a summer's day.

The motor was eventually towed undamaged to safety by a rescue team and allowed to drive away.

One passer by told local media: "We saw the car but it was stuck fast and there was nothing we could do. The snow came down from nowhere in a few hours."
