blogentry-133713-0-26380700-1412675101_thumb.jpgVW is said to be preparing the Veyron's successor and is pumping lots of money into the brand even as it plans to cut back on spending on its other brands.

 

So why the decision to build the next-gen Veyron that is rumored to push out 1,500bhp? Because it believes where most of the profits comes from. Audi and Porsche together brought in more than 50 percent of the group's first half operating profit of 6.19 billion euro.

 

According to Wolfgang Duerhemer, the president of Bugatti, the average Veyron owner has about 84 cars, 3 jets and one yacht while a Bentley owner has only about 8 cars. Seems like they maybe right in creating a new Veyron.

    Otters nearly didn't get to live another day at Orchard Road crossing

    Seen on Mothership.sg is a family of otters trying to cross Orchard Road near Plaza Singapura over the weekend. With more than 10 of them in the family, the leader of the pack tried a few times to cross the road despite the heavy traffic.  According to the article, the otters, which were squeaking, turned around twice as they realised it was not the right time to cross yet. We bet it must have been nerve-wrecking for everyone viewing this, especially the last part where a yellow CityCab taxi nearly couldn't stop in time for them. Thankfully, all of them made it across eventually.

    Is this guy trying to be police or funny?

    Hello nieces and nephews, this is your uncle Koba here again. Hello. Today, we have this guy who is trying too hard to fulfil his boyhood dream of becoming traffic police. Spotted on Road.sg, this Honda ST1300 - a road touring bike which is kinda familiar to our SPF choice of weapon, the Yamaha XJ900T. Let's have a look. Wait a sec. Fuiyoh! He is a whole package! A long long time ago, there must be young handsome traffic police who gave him a helping and makes him remember how cool traffic police is and since then, he got inspired to becoming one. Alrighty, so nieces and nephews, please take a second look at our traffic police when you spotted one. It may and may not be one.

    BMW 5 Series driver loses control and flips car

    Despite many manufacturers equipping their cars with many safety systems onboard their cars, they do not make the car immune to the laws of physics as we can see from these videos below. front.MP4 We got hold of these videos via some of the various random group chats that have been circulating it and from the looks of it, the accident happened earlier this morning (9 Jan 2020) while the roads were greasy from the drizzle over the day. We are not sure which part of the ECP highway this is but what is clear is that the camera car was driving at his own pace on lane 2 before (what looks like) a group of 3 BMW F10 5 series overtaking the camera car. Unfortunately, one of them lost control while trying to overtake his mates due to the last min abrupt weight transfer as he did the sudden lane change from 1 to 3. 44db9e47-1ba5-44ab-a4c2-1ad0dc8180cd.MP4 We have no idea if the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) was turn off or was it too much even for the DSC to save in the first place? Kudos to BMW for building a decently strong car. Despite the seriousness of the crash, the car still looked like it held up pretty well. Anyway, with the recent rainy weather, do take extra care when on the roads and make sure your tyres have enough thread!

    Food delivery rider goes ballistic and launches a verbal tirade at security officers

    Another day, another, uh, video that showcases the ugly side of Singapore. Welcome to 2021, people. 2020 was less than a pleasant year, so this writer is sure most people would like to leave all that unhappiness behind and start the year on a fresh note, without conflict, anger, agony, and just general headache. Basically, take a chill pill. Unfortunately, we have here one of our first candidates for idiot of the year, 2021 edition. My friend, it is not even the end of the first week of January, and you are already causing such a ruckus over a matter so trivial? Please, do everyone a favour, go back to 2020 and stay there. The matter seems to have risen from the security guards requesting the food delivery rider to park his bike at a less disruptive or perhaps more agreeable place, with the location of the incident being the Marina One building at Straits View. By now, it should be more or less known that the security guards at buildings in the CBD can be a little more stringent than their counterparts in other parts of Singapore. But ultimately, they're at the bottom of the food chain, having to enforce the instructions that have been laid out to them. But still, a little give and take is usually enough for everyone to settle on an amicable solution should one need to stop their vehicle at one of these buildings in the CBD. Talking nicely to everyone helps, too. Well, this guy obviously did not get the memo. Not only was his tone extremely aggressive, he continually raised his voice at the security officers who were trying their best to keep their cool and maintain the situation the best they could. But oh no, Mr Polite was having none of it. If this writer were to reproduce some of the words and phrases shouted out by the raging delivery guy, well, this writer would be in a world of trouble, and then some. Simply put, the security guards were trying to deescalate the situation, calm everyone down, let life move on. But no, Mr Angry just kept shouting, and shouting, and shouting, even at one point disparaging one of the security guard's educational qualifications. Perhaps Mr Angry should look back at what he learnt in driving school, because he continually insists that he is allowed to park on the double yellow line and that "with LTA, there is a grace period of 10 minutes".  My friend, if you bothered to do a simple Google search of "double yellow line Singapore", one of the first results to pop up is from the LTA site OneMotoring with photographic instructions about how there should be "no parking on this side of the road at all times, except for immediate pick-up and drop-off only". I do want to know where angry delivery rider got his information about LTA giving 10 minutes grace because I have never heard of such a grace period. Perhaps angry delivery guy is smoking something real good and distorting all the facts and information of daily life around him. To this writer, the more the delivery guy rages, the deeper the hole of stupidity he digs for himself. But yes, the security guards could have been a little more understanding, perhaps, but if you, rage monster, didn't raise your voice at them and started filming them with your phone, this matter could have been resolved a lot more amicably. This writer also wonders if the angry delivery rider has read the comments, because the comments are all bashing him and his behaviour.  And lastly, at the end of the video, the security guards say "thank you", turn their backs and start walking away. Basically, they are disengaging from the situation because talking to stupid people is obviously tiring. But no, Mr Angry still wants the last word, and starts gesticulating with his hand in various "kung fu" hand positions and continues his verbal tirade. It's a good thing the guards don't bother responding. My friend, this writer advises you to get therapy, because it seems like you need it. Or if that doesn't work, a long walk off a very short pier. 😏
