Ferrari announces the launch of the 488 Spider, its most powerful ever mid-rear-engined V8 car to feature the patented retractable hard top along with the highest level of technological innovation and with cutting-edge design.

Ferrari was the first manufacturer to introduce the RHT (Retractable Hard Top) on a car of this particular architecture. This solution ensures lower weight (-25 kg) and better cockpit comfort compared to the classic fabric soft-top. Just like all previous spider versions of Ferrari’s models, this is a car that is aimed squarely at clients seeking open-air motoring pleasure in a high-performance sports car with an unmistakable Ferrari engine sound.

Since the inaugural race in 2008, the Marina Bay Street Circuit has received numerous alterations to the track layout in a bid to either make the racing closer, or to improve the safety for both drivers and spectators. Bar the 2009 repositioning of the pit lane exit, the 2015 refresh may be the greatest change yet, as the whole T11 – T13 complex will be reprofiled and/or altered to improve the racing.

However, racing certainly wasn’t on the URA’s plans when the area around the complex were altered; the enhancement works were done to integrate Esplanade Park and Empress Place, which should form a new arts, culture and lifestyle district.

The FIA green-lighted the realignment, which will see T11 will remain relatively untouched, even though it will now sit much tighter with the left-hand side of Fullerton Road. This will make the corner speed a little lower as compared to last year. Drivers will now utilise the left lane of the Anderson Bridge, before accelerating to similar speeds to previous years. The hairpin T13 has been widened in a bid to aid overtaking.

Introduction

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.
