About a year ago, PEUGEOT Dealers worldwide were buzzing with excitement at the arrival of the all-new 308. It had already been shortlisted for the prestigious Car of the Year (COTY) award, was stunning to look at, oozed desirability and was officially on sale from 2nd January 2014.
Fast-forward to today and what a year 2014 has been for Peugeot’s new compact family hatchback. Not only did it take the much-coveted COTY trophy, but numerous other awards followed, and the critically acclaimed SW estate is now also in showrooms offering extra practicality.
The production version of the highly anticipated Acura NSX supercar, successor to the legendary original NSX, will make its world debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show on January 12, 2015. The model will reflect the production design and specifications of the mid-engine Acura supercar that is slated to launch in 2015. To celebrate the impending debut of NSX, Acura released a 30-second teaser video that gives an early glimpse of the production car and the sound of its three-motor, twin-turbocharged Sport Hybrid power unit.
“The next-generation NSX will deliver a ‘new sports experience’ true to its heritage and to the supercar concept that originally gave rise to the name NSX,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The NSX will serve as the ultimate expression of Acura performance that is fueling a reenergised brand.”
As part of the government’s plans to improve the rail network, not only will new lines be added, but existing lines will be upgraded as well. Two new lines, the Downtown Line (DTL) and the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), are currently under construction, and existing lines are receiving a refresh too; four stations will be added on the East-West Line, and one new station will be added on the North-South Line.
The LTA has ordered a whole new batch of trains as well, scheduled to be delivered and operational from 2015 onwards. To cope with the added capacity, several stations will be revamped. Currently, Clementi, Commonwealth and Queenstown stations are undergoing upgrading, which, when completed, should equip these stations with new station entrances, more fare gates and ticketing machines. A new pedestrian link bridge will be built to supplement the existing one and to improve accessibility.
Some stations will undergo an even more radical makeover. Not dissimilar to the Jurong East Modification Project, Tanan Merah will also receive a new platform, to improve the frequency of trains heading to and from Changi Airport. The platform will be operational by 2024.
