In conjunction with the annual Singapore Formula One Grand Prix and the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia race this month, Porsche Singapore has organized a rare display of two of its most extraordinary race cars—the Porsche 917 KH Coupé and the new Porsche 919 Hybrid—right in the heart of the country at ION Orchard.
Porsche has always been synonymous with race-winning sports cars, and there is no better way to celebrate its rich motorsports heritage than by bringing in the two race cars that best represent the Porsche DNA to Singapore during the For-mula One Grand Prix weekend.
More often than not Infiniti has been likened to Nissan what Lexus is to Toyota. And it seems to be the most accurate description of the brand but unfortunately unlike Lexus, the brand hasn’t enjoyed as much success locally.
Due to a poorly executed attempt to launch the brand in the 90s, Infiniti never really took off and exited with barely any cars sold. However with its re-entry into our challenging market again in 2011, it once again found poor response. Despite having a decent selection of models that boast comparable quality to its main rival, sales was still slow mostly due to the engine capacities offered.
With high road tax imposed on local cars sold, the 5.0-litre and 3.7-litre capacities offered by the brand fared poorly h...
Volkswagen has been appointed the official car sponsor for the 7th annual Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), to be held from 27-31 October 2014. With the theme 'Building Energy Connections', the event will feature a line-up of conferences, exhibitions and networking events.
More than 60,000 delegates from over 60 countries are set to attend SIEW 2014, which will be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. VIPs will be chauffeured around Singapore in total of 45 Volkswagen cars: 30 units of the Sharan 2.0 TSI and 15 units of the Passat 1.8 TSI.
The new Lexus NX 300h isn’t simply a crossover with SUV looks, it will now come equipped with an intelligent electric all-wheel drive system that provides extra grip just when the driver needs it. Light and compact, the clever technology also avoids the weight, packaging, emissions and fuel consumption penalties associated with larger, mechanical AWD systems.
Called E-Four, the system uses an additional electric motor to drive the rear axle, providing more grip and better vehicle control on slippery surfaces. The front axle is propelled by power from the hybrid petrol engine or electric motor, or both in combination.
The Lexus NX will be unveiled in Singapore in November. This new model range marks Lexus’ second offering in the luxury SUV segment and provides customers a premium vehicle that looks unique and should pack the performance to match. 2 variants will be made available here- the NX Turbo and the NX Hybrid. Only the Hybrid will be launched in November. It may be a while before the Turbo joins the lineip.
The NX is based on the futuristic design showcased on the LF-NX concept car, and has been built for drivers who are looking for a premium vehicle to complement their urban and active lifestyles. With a dominant road presence and good performance, it provides a sports car-like agility in an SUV. The NX Hybrid is equipped with a 2.5-litre petrol engine with electric power from a high-output motor, while the NX Turbo is powered by a 2-litre turbo direct injection gasoline engine. Do expect an F-SPORT variant of the NX Turbo to be added to the lineup as well.
Renault Singapore launched the all-new Renault Captur amidst the bustling crowd at Vivo City yesterday where the public got to see the new crossover unveiled by Toro Rosso F1 team driver Daniil Kvyat, the youngest driver to ever make it to the sport.
