Volkswagen is launching the new Touran in a truly unique fashion. Instead of the usual showroom display, the new Touran will be bringing breakfast for customers at the Volkswagen Centre from across the causeway.
You can expect authentic Ipoh hor fun, Malacca's chicken rice ball as well as KL's famous bak kut teh all laid out in the showroom when you visit.
And just to underline what an amazing feat it is to deliver the food from across the causeway that's still warm, here's the distance figures!

Newly appointed Mclaren racing director Eric Boullier believes that speed is not as crucial as driveability and fuel management in the opening races of the 2014 F1 season. The Woking-based squad has had a phenomenal start to the pre-season tests, with both Button and Magnussen battling with the works Mercedes team for the fastest lap. However, the MP4-29 gradually became less competitive as the test went on, although upgrades before Melbourne should restore that lost pace.
Boullier agrees that downforce will bring a lot of pace, but for now at least, so will driveability and reliability. Not only that, the drivers will have to adapt and change their driving style to ensure 100 litres of fuel will get them through the race. He also mentioned that their usual competitors, Mercedes and Red Bull, look very fast, with Williams joining in the fray.
The recent tweaks to the COE system has worked! More economy cars have been sold than before the tweaks were implemented. Cars with OMVs of less than $15,000 have risen from 8% of the market to a whopping 25% of all Category A registrations! Cars with OMV at or below $20 grand increased by 26% to occupy more than 50% of the market.
The tweaks also lowered the median OMV of the cars registered- statistics in February show a median of $18,745, 28% lower than the $26,147 of the last half a year. The changes in the regulation was meant to reduce the amount of premium brands occupying Category A, although some believe the change actually made no difference, for the premiums climbed $5000 to $77,000.
The all-new Audi TT Coupé and 310PS TTS Coupé are ready to take centre stage at the Geneva Motor Show. The sports car that in 1998 defined the Audi design philosophy and paved the way for the brand’s current unparalleled success has been respectfully updated and expansively re-engineered for its third generation. It is again characterized by innovation in construction, engine design and technological input in its new all-digital Audi virtual cockpit.
The front of the new TT is dominated by horizontal lines. The single frame grille is broader and flatter than that of the previous model, with a powerful line dividing it into two zones. The flat headlights give the new TT’s face a determined look. Xenon plus units are standard, with LED headlights or units using the pioneering Audi Matrix LED technology first seen in the A8 luxury saloon available as optional extras. At the rear, horizontal lines give the TT real presence. When the optional LED and Audi Matrix LED headlights are specified, the tail lights also have dynamic indicators.
Taking a major step into the future with the newly developed Huracán LP 610-4, the successor to the highly successful Gallardo, Lamborghini is redefining the benchmark in the segment. With its pure and absolute design, breathtaking dynamics and excellent quality, the Huracán delivers an unparalleled sports car experience. It unites mighty performance with a character perfectly suited to everyday use; its wide-ranging new technologies work together in a fully integrated fashion.
The design is bold and edgy, with beautifully sculptural forms. The starting point of the design process was the Huracán’s silhouette. The objective was to define the car with a single line stretching from the front end over the passenger cell to the rear. The side windows take on a hexagonal form that looks like a gem set into the profile of the Huracán. At night, too, it is utterly unmistakable as all lights, including the main headlamps, beam in LED technology – an absolute first in the super sports car segment.
