Industrial Shift

Industrial Shift

The significance of our cover car this week doesn’t lie in the fact it’s the most powerful four-door Porsche ever. Sure, with 570bhp and a mountain of torque the Panamera Turbo S will do 0-100km/h in 3.6 secs, but then you can do the same in any German super saloon […]

Supercar Addiction

Supercar Addiction

Another week goes by and Malaysians get another supercar dealership setting up business. McLaren Automotive has teamed up with Sime Darby Auto Britannia to open up McLaren Kuala Lumpur to cater to customers willing to drop some serious amounts of money for their four-wheeled fantasies. Visit now and you can […]

Exploring Niches

Exploring Niches

Our cover car this week is the brand new BMW 4 Series Coupé, which also used to be known as the BMW 3 Series Coupé. Why the change in name? To put it quite simply, it’s because BMW would like to make more money from their 2-door 3 Series. You […]

It is quite impressive that despite all the odds seemingly stacked against them, Caterham has produced a […]

Premium Bang For Your Buck

Premium Bang For Your Buck

Ask any Malaysian about car prices and chances are they’ll tell you about how expensive it is to buy cars here. Even entry-level cars cost more than the average annual salary and luxury cars are the same price as a nice house. But, are we really getting a raw deal? […]

An Electrifying Future

An Electrifying Future

While discussions continue about fuel prices in Malaysia, a cleaner and more sustainable future for cars has been unveiled at the ongoing 2013 Frankfurt Motorshow. The VW Group along with its rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz have launched multiple full electric and plug-in hybrid models, which are not only production […]

It Has Been An Interesting Week

It Has Been An Interesting Week

It’s amazing how much can happen in a week. Since last week’s issue, petrol prices have gone up RM0.20 cents for RON 95 and RM0.15 for RON 97. For some that may not be too painful of a pinch, but for others that means opting for a smaller, more efficient […]
