blogentry-133713-0-87632900-1452674580_thumb.jpgBilled as the “most intelligent luxury sedan", Mercedes-Benz's 10th generation E-Class saloon sets to rewrite the benchmark in its class with its emotive design, high-grade interior, as well as its technical innovations.

 

blogentry-133713-0-80013200-1452674584_thumb.jpgBuilt on Benz’s modular MRA platform that also underpins the latest C-Class and S-Class models, it grows 65mm at its wheelbase and 43mm in overall length. Despite the larger body, the new car is lighter than its predecessor. Displaying the hallmark Mercedes-Benz saloon proportions, will debut a number of high-tech comfort and safety features. Some of its cooler features include the touch-sensitive control buttons ('Touch Controls') on the steering wheel and the LED ambient lighting with 64 colour options.

 

blogentry-133713-0-82624200-1452674592_thumb.jpgMimicking BMW's 7 Series, it has an optional Remote Parking Pilot system that allows the vehicle to be moved into and out of parking spaces remotely using a smartphone app too.

 

blogentry-133713-0-71770500-1452674588_thumb.jpgPowering the new E-Class will be a choice of two engines at market launch: the E200 with a four-cylinder petrol engine (184bhp) and the E220d with an all new four-cylinder diesel engine (195bhp). Other powertrains that will arrive in the future will include the E350e with a four-cylinder petrol engine (279bhp) featuring hybrid technology and the E400 4MATIC will represent the first step into the six-cylinder petrol engine ladder.

Now, the C, E and S class all look alike, like clones. No differentiation.

Only the S Class owners will be sad.

 

If you are buying the C or E class, then will be happy. Cos you will get a product that looks just as good, but cost half the price!

    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.

    Lancer vs Sirocco - who would win in an illegal drag race

    Bored because you can't travel? Why not challenge your friends to a drag race and get fined under the Road Traffic Act?

    On 18th January, as seen on SG Road Vigilante, a group of approximately eight people were at this illegal drag race. Seems like there were five spectators, two racers and one starter.  It wasn't a very fair race because the starter's hand was blocking the Volkswagen Scirocco. It started later than the Mitsubishi Lancer, who saw a golden opportunity (his view not blocked by the starter) and raced ahead. Where's the sportsmanship, brother? 


    Though, if you ask me, I think this race wasn't about speed. The race track was short, and the cars were driving carefully. Yknow why? Cuz' slow and steady wins the race.

    Some Facebook users were hypothesizing other reasons for the gathering, while others bashed them for their apparent drag racing.
    Whatever it is, the uploader shouldn't have bao toh (read: sabotage) his friends. Actually, come to think of it, who was videoing this? Weren't there already eight people in the frame? Or also +1 cameraman? 

    Edit: Added in the original video source https://www.facebook.com/groups/sgroadshallofshame/permalink/1927162840764549/ for easier reference – leaving it to you guys to decide what this 'drag race' really is.

    Now you know what caused the huge jam on PIE on 11th of Jan

    Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half?  A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities.  Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!

    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.
