Ferrari revealed the 458 Speciale Spider to a select group of customers back at Pebble Beach, and rumour had it then that the car will be revealed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. We now have official confirmation that Ferrari will indeed pull the wraps off the car at next month’s Paris Motor Show.

Only 458 units were originally planned, although do expect more to be produced under Ferrari's new CEO Sergio Marchionne, for he aims to increase the production of Ferraris gradually over the next few years.

Introduction

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...

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.
