New vehicle sales for 2014 so far have been in decline compared to the same period in 2013 but things could be on the up judging from the number of new car events gracing our news pages this week. Honda’s best selling car in Malaysia, the City, was unexpectedly unveiled at a media event in KL last week. Also last week was the media test drive of the new Volkswagen Polo 1.6 litre hatchback.
Another new car launched last week was the Ferrari 458 Speciale which was the kick-off event for the Ferrari Racing Days weekend. This was held at Sepang from the 21st to 23rd and was the first time that the Ferrari Racing Days weekend had been held in South East Asia. It was a fabulous weekend as you will be able to see from our two-page photo special. Special cars from Ferrari’s exclusive XX Programme were brought to Malaysia at the request of their high-roller owners to race on the Sepang track and these cars included the 599XX as well as F1 cars from the 2001 and 2007 season.
For those of us not in the XX league, there are the regular road-going Ferraris in our platinum pages to dream about. Have a great week ahead and stay safe on the roads.
