Aston Martin is unveiling an exceptional new addition to the hugely popular PlayStation 3 exclusive racing game Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) in the shape of the Design Prototype 100 (DP-100) Vision Gran Turismo.

Developed in-house by the design team and led by Design Director Marek Reichman, DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo is a new, virtual-only GT racer that will be available for GT6 owners to download in July 2014.

Starting with nothing but the traditional 'blank sheet of paper' approach, the design team and design engineers worked for six months to create a sports car that clearly pushes the boundaries of what an Aston Martin could be.

Created utilising many of the same techniques as applied in the development of Aston Martin production sports cars - hand sketches and 3D modelling, followed by full realisation in the virtual world - DP-100 provides an exceptional level of detail with a fully functioning suspension system and state-of-the-art electronics.

The twin-turbo V12 mid-engined racer offers up to 800bhp, endowing it with blistering performance fully in keeping with the high octane nature of the game.

As with the CC100 Speedster Concept, much of the design cues visible in DP-100 could be featured in future sports cars.

Lucky it's only a virtual car. Looks so cartoonish like a car from the Back to the Future show

    A new undercover Traffic Police vehicle?

    For those who have been receiving texts via your favourite messaging applications that a ComfortDelGro taxi fitted with several cameras is a Traffic Police vehicle, you guys have been smoked. The Singapore Police Force (SPF) have noticed that the following image has been circulating around and has clarified that it is not part of their fleet. On their Facebook page, SPF contacted ComfortDelGro and verified that the equipment is temporarily installed on this taxi for training purposes. Members of the public are advised to exercise discretion and not circulate unverified information indiscriminately.  Here are what some neitzens have to say on SPF's Facebook page...

    Bentley slams into the rear of a Honda City, leaving many to speculate on just what the Honda driver was doing!

    Some people don't deserve to drive. Watch the video below and see whether you agree with our harsh comment or not. Posted by My Grandfather's Road, another traffic-shaming facebook page, is this video of a Honda City that almost came to a complete stop while on the first lane of the ECP.  It is unclear how long ago this accident happened as the in-car camera video dates the incident on the 27th of Dec 2019 but the post was published today, 22nd of July 2020. We have no idea why the Honda driver attempted to slow down. Could it be that he or she realised that there is an exit and wanted to turn off at the last minute?

    Silly cyclist crashes into stationary van

    A van has been injured in this accident due to a cyclist's silly carelessness. Jokes aside, this is quite an unfortunate incident whereby a cyclist smashed into the back of a Toyota Hiace van which was stationary along one of Old Airport Road's traffic junction. The accident happened in the wee hours of the morning, with the cyclist apparently beating a red light at the previous junction as traffic was light. With the need to go as fast possible, he likely chose keep his gaze low on the road to be as aerodynamic as possible without realising that the van that he was about to crash into had actually stopped at the upcoming traffic junction.  Thankfully, the cyclist survived but he sure looked quite messed up. We hope he recovers well! P.S. SG Road Vigilante's video thumbnail might be slightly disturbing for some. Viewer discretion advised!

    Van lands in the bushes thanks to street racers

    Nothing new here. This is just another case of street racers causing trouble to the general road users. Shared among group chats in Whatsapp is a series of videos that show a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5 owner being bombarded with hokkien vulgarities. No, we won't be translating what those words mean in case you are wondering... After some digging, we found out that the GTI driver who was being shouted at, and a Mitsubishi Evo X were zipping left and right through traffic along CTE on 9 Jul 2020 before causing a Toyota Hiace to crash and flip sideways into the bushes at the left side of the highway. We could see that the GTI sustained some damage to its front left hence the driver stopped. We assumed the Evo X driver did not stop and continued on its way.   This is not the first time the GTI owner has been caught driving recklessly as you can see from the video above by ROADS.sg. Of course neitzens on facebook are bashing the reckless drivers as we can see from Thelocalsociety's FB page. What are your thoughts on such drivers? Let us know!
