Infiniti announced today that the company has developed and launched an innovative retail sales and service app for its retailers, ICARX (Infiniti Client Acquisition and Retention Experience), that streamlines the car-buying process.
ICAR-X, a newly developed software tool, enables Infiniti retailers to deliver a more efficient and premium sales experience using cutting-edge mobile technology.

Why is BMW's 2 series such a popular car? I'm just as curious as you.
Having discovered that it's usually sold out in the last few months, I take another look at this fun little sports car that has captured the hearts and minds of the young and old alike.
Call me shallow, but one thing you just have to have in a convertible is a great sound system. Judged on that criterion alone, the new BMW 220i Convertible is a winner. Top down, cruising Geylang Road with Madonna blasting and the wind blowing in the hair, aunties waving from the durian stall, all is well with the world. The 220i drop-top is a cool car.
The LTA has completed its quarterly review of traffic conditions, and is satisfied with the results. As such, there will be no alterations to the ERP rates on either the ERP-priced roads or the expressways.
The final review of 2015 will take place in November, and should there be changes to traffic conditions, do expect the necessary alterations to the rates to take place.
Held on the 24th July 2015, the Porsche Circuit was an exhibition to celebrate 30 years of Porsche in Singapore together with SG50. Porsche cars are exclusively distributed by Stuttgart Auto, a part of the Eurokars group.
The exhibition showcased several interesting things about Porsche, including six generations of the venerable 911, as well as Porsche’s Le Mans winning cars and drivers.
Porsche fans were immediately greeted with Porsche Design lifestyle accessories the moment they stepped in the door, a great place to start picking out affordable (relative to the cars) Porsche items such as shirts, bags, shoes and even watches. Porsche Design is the luxury lifestyle arm of Porsche, and aims to bring about motoring and motor...
The Aston Martin Vulcan attended the showpiece of the Blancpain Endurance Series, the TOTAL 24 Hours of Spa, last weekend (25 July) and demonstrated its abilities as the ultimate track-only machine as it completed two flying laps of the world-famous circuit.
With its 800-plus bhp powertrain developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing, the 7.0-litre V12 Aston Martin Vulcan was driven by works driver Darren Turner (GB), who has been involved in the design and development of the car from its inception. Turner has more than 20 years’ experience in developing racing cars and relished the opportunity to put this track-knowledge into Aston Martin’s most extreme sports car.
In the current turbo-era, everyone expects at least a Mercedes to finish on the podium. However, it was not to be, for clashes and driver error have relegated the 2 Silver Arrows to P6 and P8, with Hamilton continuing to extend his championship lead. It was Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel that won the race. The Maranello-based team dominated pretty much from start to finish, either matching or superseding the pace of the hard charging Mercedes and Red Bull cars. For the second race in a row, both Mercedes cars had launch issues, which did not allow them to get off the line quick at all. They were swamped at the start by both Ferraris, which were P1 and 2 before the end of sector 1. Rosberg tried, but failed to get down the inside of Raikkonen, who eventually had to retire as a result of an MGU-K failure.
The Hungarian double podium was the first for Red Bull since Singapore last year. It is also Danii Kyvat’s first trip to the podium, and he was understandly elated. Ricciardo believes he may have had a chance to win the race should he not have tangled with the 2 Mercedes cars, which left him with a damaged sidepod and front wing.
It was also a good race for Max Verstappen, as he brought his Toro Rosso home in P4. He complained early on that Carlos Sainz, his teammate, was slowing him down, but a stellar drive with clean overtakes was more than enough to make up for the time lost. Sainz, unfortunately, has suffered yet another issue with his powerunit, which put him out of the race.
When I bought my first car in the late noughties, I brought my dad along for the test drive. Afterwards, I met up with the car salesman to ink the deal separately, only announcing my decision later in the evening. Dad had only one thing to say about my purchase: “You didn’t get the white, did you?”
No, I went with the blue instead. But his opinion – no white please – may be coloured by public perceptions of what various car colours say about their drivers.
However, when I asked him about it some years later, he said he was merely concerned that white cars would be too difficult to maintain.
With increased COEs flooding the market, many of you will be shopping for a new car and signing your papers soon. You’ve decided on a make and mod...
