There was always a group of people who thought the Audi R8 looked a little odd, disproportionate, and boring when put side by side with its cousin the Lamborghini Gallardo. It drives brilliantly, has a Lamborghini engine but those blokes still thought, nah.. its still just an Audi.

 

I think Audi has silenced those critics with this one.

 

The Audi R8 Spyder is simply gorgeous with a much better looking side profile without those 'awful' carbon fibre blades. Instead, they have been replaced by sharp slabs which cut into the Spyder's side with the air vents exposed, slightly reminiscent of the Lamborghini Gallardo.

Another problem with the R8 hardtop is that the engine's a little quiet when you are embraced by Audi's excellent insulation materials. Now though, you can fully enjoy the soundtrack of the Lamborghini-sourced 525bhp 5.2 litre V10. The soft top takes just 19 seconds to transform the Audi into a raging animal and even though the Spyder is 476 pounds heavier than the coupe, it still manages to hit 100km/h in 4 seconds. This car is mental!

And it's not just all show on the exterior and no go when it comes to the interior. Audi say that the leather for the seats are coloured with pigments that reflect the infra-red components of sunlight which makes the seats 20 degrees Celsius cooler...

 

With that kind of attention to detail, it can only be German.

    Mitsubishi Evo 10 performs a timely pop and bang which literally smoked a salty cam car driver

    In the public's eyes, most often confuse/label Japanese sports cars as an 'Ah beng' car or an ordinary car that has been 'zhng-ed'. In Singapore, it is common for these cars to get hated by the public. Here's one such example: What Happened? In a user-submitted video, the driver/passenger of the cam car can be heard making some remarks about the blue Mitsubishi Evolution X in front of it. The remarks included a sarcastic attempt to mimic the Evo X's noise. Moments later, as the Evo X enters an expressway, it performs a quick launch, resulting in pops and bangs. Thick black smoke and flames could also be seen shooting out of its exhaust.  I must say that the 'smokescreen' was a rather timely response to the complaints coming from the cam car.  Illegally Modified? This might be the first question that pops into your mind for the uninitiated. However, the black smoke, flames, pops and bangs produced from the Mitsubishi Evolution X are due to the anti-lag system installed in the car.  Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the Mitsubishi Evolution X was illegally modified. However, there is still a chance that the car is 'illegally modified' if LTA thoroughly inspects the car.  For all you know, it could be labelled as 'illegally modified' due to heavily tinted windows.  Netizens' Comments Must be because cam car's first time experiencing pops and bangs.  NGL, Evo X is a nice car😍 Every day we learn something new.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    An obnoxious SG 'Karen' and her husband attempts to run down a security officer with their Bentley

    First of all, let's define the term 'Karen'. According to Wikipedia, 'Karen' is defined as: Watch this video to catch Singapore's very own Karen and her husband in action: What Happened? This incident occurred at Red Swastika School, supposedly one of Singapore's "branded" Primary schools. Two security officers attempted to stop a Bentley from entering the school as it did not have a valid vehicle label. Unhappy at how the Bentley was refused access into the school, the female passenger of the Bentley pulled the most basic 'Karen' move ever. She immediately got out of the car and whipped out her phone to film the school's front gate and two security officers.  Moments later, she hopped back into the passenger seat of the Bentley. And this was when matters escalated. The Bentley driver, supposedly the husband of 'Karen', started driving the car into the school in an attempt to get both security officers out of the way. However, the security officer in the luminous green vest stood firm in front of the Bentley to prevent it from entering the school, risking his life in the process.  This caused the security officer to stumble back a few steps before the Bentley came to a halt.  Subsequently, the security officer could be seen bending down and holding his knees in discomfort.  Not Caught On Film After the entire escapade, a staff from Red Swastika School granted access to the Bentley for it to enter the school.  Later on, the Bentley couple was spotted alighting the kid inside the school's drop-off point. Was it necessary that you got out of your way to cause a traffic jam and risk the lives of others just to alight your kid inside the school's compound? Geez, how embarrassing for the kid. No Record Found After doing some poking around, it turns out that the Bentley's number plate does not exist in LTA's record.   MMM...sus much? What do you guys think of this? Instantaneously, this reminded me of the road raging Audi driver incident (Refer below), where a car workshop gave the driver a wrongly printed number plate.  I am not surprised if this turns out to be the case for the Bentley too.  The Minister has spoken! UPDATE: 11/1/22, 3:55PM A recent user-submitted footage revealed the actual reason for preventing the Bentley from entering Red Swastika School. The Bentley driver apparently "cut queue" to turn into the school and attempted to enter the school by driving against the flow of traffic.  Watch the video here: UPDATE: 11/1/22, 6:55PM The Bentley driver has been arrested. Netizens' Comments My man here straight up tagged the Minster of Education🙌🙌🙌 Actions must be taken against this outrageous Bentley driver!😡 Kudos to you, security uncle! Hope you are alright.     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Dancing jay-jogger dashes across a road, 50m away from a pedestrian crossing and almost gets run down by a car

    Since young, our parents will constantly remind us time and time again to always check for traffic before attempting to cross the road.  Unfortunately, all these bits of advice seem to enter and exit this jogger's ears, without the organ in between his ears retaining any advice.  Watch this short clip to find out why: What Happened? The cam car and a Toyota Harrier formed up on the left lane of a two carriageway road.  A man clad in a perspiration-soaked Army singlet walks along the pavement from a distance. As he approaches the cam car and Toyota Harrier, the traffic light turns green in both cars' favour.  Instead of stopping by the grass patch and checking for oncoming traffic, the man simply hops onto the road and attempts to illegally dash across the road. At this moment, a Toyota Prius drives past the cam car and almost collides with the pedestrian.  As a result, the pedestrian performs an "e-brake" to stop himself and does an odd dance-like action. Luckily, the oncoming Toyota Prius also performed an e-brake and avoided colliding with the pedestrian.  After this encounter, the pedestrian takes his own sweet time and nonchalantly "jogs" across the road while navigating around several vehicles.  Too Shag To Think Logically? Is saving those few minutes spent waiting for the green man so important that it is more important than one's life? The more time I spend dwelling on this incident, the more ridiculous this pedestrian becomes.  Netizens' Comments No wonder he got the audacity to perform such an act. Looking at his face, I think he just woke up lah.  During National Service, he's the type of guy that your Encik will call blur f@#k!!     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    Mazda driver with no skills gets stuck on a kerb after mounting it. How did he pass his driving test?

    Apart from the one time I saw an oversized trailer mount a kerb while reversing in Ubi, I have never seen any vehicle mount a kerb.  Oh, unless you count learning drivers mounting a kerb during their circuit practice, but that's another story.  Watch this absurd video of a Mazda driver mounting a kerb here: What Happened? This incident occurred at the drop-off point at Woodlands North Plaza. A Mazda 3 driver, who also happens to be a Private Hire Driver, accidentally mounted a kerb while exiting the drop-off point.  What puzzles me is how he mounted the kerb... From Google Maps, the lane for vehicles to exit the drop-off point is pretty wide.  Furthermore, the extent of the kerb mounting was not typical - it was to the extent that his undercarriage was stuck on the kerb! As a result, his car could not move and was stuck on the kerb (If only his car had All-Wheel Drive😆). Subsequently, the driver attempted to dismount from the kerb multiple times, but all he did was further bang up his undercarriage.  Well, it doesn't seem like he cares about the car since the Mazda 3 is a rental car to perform his duty as a Private Hire Driver. So, how did the Mazda 3 driver manage to mount the kerb? Simply because of his lack of driving skills, or was he distracted by his mobile phone? You tell me.  NGL, I chuckled when I first saw the video. The ridiculousness of the incident got the better of me.  Netizens' Comments The difference is one drive for a living while the other got his/her license <1 year ago. Regardless, both drivers CMI and do not deserve their license.  RIGHT? I mean it is not easy to get a kerb rash from rubbing against the kerb, let alone mounting the kerb to this extent.  🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️     ======== Receive a $10 PayNow for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️https://bit.ly/3c6JERA
