OZ Racing presents SUPERFORGIATA, the top-of-the-range OZ wheel with iconic appeal for fans of racing style and true performance in the I-TECH collection.
The ultimate expression of wheel design and technology, Superforgiata gains more exclusivity to complement the most sophisticated automobiles. It is a masterpiece achieved from an exclusive milling process which reduces the weight of each spokes, making this lightweight product (approx 7kg: Front wheels, and 9.5kg:rear wheels).
The new Montecarlo HLT wheel joins the OZ collections and is a new opportunity to customize the most exclusive SUVs and most prestigious Big Sedans. Remarkable yet lean shapes, high-level mechanical resistance yet structural lightness, careful attention down to the finest detail and extraordinary concave design make the Montecarlo HLT the perfect mix of luxury, exclusiveness with the performance of a real one-of-a kind product.
As part of the ALL TERRAIN collection, there is no mistake at all about the personality of the Montecarlo HLT and what it is designed for: to create a new, exclusive way of customizing SUVs and big sedans. Montecarlo HLT gives rise to a new style by teaming the technologies developed by OZ, which derive directly from F1 racing with an innovative design for this segment.
According to National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan, cycling can be a viable mode of transport. He not only believes it can be a viable mode of transport, he’s pushing for it as well.
Citing examples from bicycle friendly cities such as Amsterdam and Copenhagen, he believes that authorities will have to ensure that such trips are safe and pleasant to attract more to cycle. Currently, cycling is only one to two percent of transport modes in Singapore.
Part of the plan to ensure cyclists are safe, a 700km cycling network will be built by 2030 to connect various neighbourhoods.

Nissan delivered its first 100% electric taxis to Madrid and Barcelona. The introduction of the Nissan LEAF to Madrid's taxi fleet, and the e-NV200 taxi for Barcelona - brings the option of quiet, zero-emission travel to these bustling city centers.
The Barcelona deliveries served as an important step in the execution of an agreement between Nissan, the City of Barcelona, and the Barcelona Metropolitan area which brings the Barcelona-built e-NV200 to the streets of the city where the revolutionary electric van is produced.
Ever since Aston Martin became independent in 2007, it has undergone almost a complete makeover. The British firm hired a new chief executive, signed a new engine deal with Mercedes-AMG, and has been working on a new platform. The long-dead but iconic Lagonda marque has been revived, hinting at a new design direction. It all sounds good on paper, but so far, nothing concrete has come out of the aforementioned changes.
Well, that is until now. A test mule has been spotted, which could be hiding the said new platform under the widened Vantage shell. The mule may also pack the new Mercedes engine, although both rumours are unconfirmed at the moment.
However, the prototype may hint at the future of Aston Martin. With a total revamp and a new powerunit, this radical makeover may be extremely thrilling for potential and existing customers alike.
Unlike its rivals from Coventry, Mercedes has no plans to soften the looks of the iconic G-Wagen. The 2016 refresh comes after regulatory changes have forced Mercedes to alter several aspects of the vehicle. That said, the overall brutalist design aesthetic will march on, for Daimler AG boss Dieter Zetsch believes that the G-Class shouldn’t become a quasi-offroader, it has pedigree and will always be the original German offroader.
Rumours suggest Mercedes may use the 2016 refresh to widen and lower the car to keep it relevant in the highly competitive market today. Currently, the Range Rover is their only true competitior, but that is set to change as the likes of Bentley and others start to manufacture their own luxury SUVs.
