The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (aka the New 147)

Alfa's car christening department has gone a little mad.   First, with their MiTo, now the Giulietta. Bringing back the illustrious and beautiful name from the 70s.   I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I think the name is brilliant! It's just a feeling that they were trying a little too hard with the Mito. But the Guilietta.. that sounds fantastico!     The 147's replacement will be showcased at the 2010 Geneva Motor show and this will only be available with 5 doors. So obviou

2010 Maserati GranCabrio

Prepare some tissue paper. Just in case you start drooling..   This one is definitely a looker.   Normally you'd see a middle aged man who suddenly realises that he has a wad of cash in his back pocket and doesn't know what to spend it on. Strangely, a Maserati would appear in his garage the next day. Maseratis are the relatively cheaper alternatives to the Ferraris and the Lambos. The problem is, while people in their 20s and 30s buy the Horses and the Bulls, the Trident badge is neglected!

Tricked out Mclaren SLR '999'

This is what happens to a car when its owner has too much money and hails from the land of Ricola sweets.   The Mclaren SLR alone costs a bomb, US$495,000 to be exact. This incredibly garish, pimped out SLR on the other hand costs US$4.5 million on top of the base price because of its 24 carat gold accents. It is all thanks to Swiss designer Ueli Anliker. The Mclaren now looks more like a Pussycat Doll's handbag than a car..     Check out the plush gold seats and trim.. This car has mor

VW extends it's global domination

VW has announced today that they've bought a 19.9% stake in Japanese carmaker Suzuki.   I think it's brilliant. Suzuki, as of recently, has been churning out cars that have actually been worth the mention like the Swift which have a few awards in it's pockets and even the SX4 which handles like a dream. Both companies will be sharing their tech knowledge and working together on things like fuel-efficient and low-emission vehicle technologies. I'm quite excited with this prospect...with such a

You call that a facelift? Come on BMW, you can do more!

Spyshots of the 2010 BMW M3 facelift were posted onto the web last week. If you were expecting those aggressive looking contour lines that appeared on the hood of the 2009 BMW 3 series sedans, you can forget it. The Bavarian manufacturer didn't bother with those. The flagship M3 only received minor changes to its front bumper and a new LED tail-light arrangement. Most changes were made on the inside with better trim, improved iDrive system and better interior lighting.   BMW designers seem to

Tata Nano now individualised!

[extract] Can you imagine a phalanx of Tata Nanos all travelling in the same direction with little to distinguish them from one another besides the different shades of colours? You can

BMW's new 5-er looks so much better without Bangle

It's only been a couple a months since Chris Bangle, infamous for designing what everyone dubbed "bangle butt" on the BMW series of vehicles, left the famed German company. Since then Adrian van Hooydonk has been hard at work slimming the profiles and softening up the lines on their cars.   A beautiful example of their hard work is in their new 5 Series. The team has kept the looks of the car in-line with their current 3 Series, but predictably stretched, certainly staying true to how they use

Ferrari Submarine

If you've kept up with the papers recently, you would've probably read about the flash floods that've occurred in the Bukit Timah prime district area. Flood waters reached knee-level and some cars were even fully submerged beneath the murky waters.   It's hardly surprising but nevertheless traumatic to hear some exotic cars falling victim to the flood. A barely month-old Ferrari F430 was reported to have been completely submerged in the Tessarina condominium carpark.   This comes only weeks
