blogentry-133713-0-96501900-1454208935_thumb.jpgThe very first 2017 Acura NSX has been sold for an impressively high price at Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale auction in the States. Winning the bid was Rick Hendrick who paid S$1.7million for the hybrid sport car. According to report, he is the owner of Hendrick Motorsports, a successful American racing team which currently competes in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

 

It is said that in recent years, he has also purchased the first 2012 Camaro ZL1 at the same auction.

 

All the proceeds of the auction will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground.

 

FYI, the Acura NSX is uses a twin-turbocharged V6 engine combined with three electric motors that outputs a strong 570bhp. It does the century sprint in around 3 seconds via its all wheel drive system and uses a nine-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.

    Toyota Vios bursts into flames at Punggol carpark

    Now that is dangerous.  Here's another case of a car catching fire while parked.  As seen on SG Road Vigilante's page, a Toyota Vios caught fire despite not even being driven. This happened at on 2nd of Dec 2020 at blk 638 of Punggol Drive and thankfully it seemed like no one got hurt by the incident.  It is unclear why the Vios lighted up on its own and we hope the taxi that was beside it when it was burning wasn't damaged. Could it be its in car-camera's back up battery? Or was it something else?

    Should these people be charged for using these parking lots as well?

    Now this is an interesting sight.

    As we have mentioned before in previous blog posts, the COVD-19 pandemic has somewhat influenced many who are forced to stay home to start working out as an excuse to head out. Hence, when we went into Phrase 2, there was a noticeable increase in traffic at our parks as many still continued to enjoy exercising, leading to some to come up with new ideas to move away from the overcrowding in parks. Check out this clip which has been shared by SG Road Vigilante, whereby the camera car chanced upon this public outdoor carpark at Fort Canning on the 9th of September which has been 'converted' into an outdoor gym. With the carpark almost full, we bet the sight of those using the carpark as a workout area annoyed the camera car driver. What do you guys reckon? Cool or not cool? Let us know!

    Van tries squeezing through merging lane, gets kissed on the bumper instead!

    Is this another case of drivers having ego issues? Or was the driver of the Toyota Hiace simply not paying attention? Posted on SG Road Vigilante's Facebook page is this video of two drivers exiting into the KPE via a merging lane.  We have no idea why would either driver would allow such a silly accident to happen to themselves. In our reckoning, the accident probably happened at less than 20km/h with the Hiace mini van slowing going into the rear of the Hyundai Elantra as the lane merges into a single one.  Is the trouble of needing to waste time and money to get both vehicles repaired worth it? We think not. Giving way to the other vehicle and/or paying attention on the road is a way smarter option in our opinion...

    Have you ever been so mad you gave a camera the middle finger?

    In our fast-paced and hectic society, it is easy to get triggered when unexpected things happen to you as we can see from this video that has been posted on SG Road Vigilante. In this video that was shot in Yishun a few days back, we can see a van which is the camera vehicle, coming to the rear of a Volkswagen Scirocco. While waiting for the gantry to be lifted, the car rolled back as one pair of its wheels were on a hump. The van driver gave the car a tap of its horn, triggering the Scirocco driver to come down and confront the van driver. For those who have no experience with dual-clutch gearboxes, some, if not most, have the tendency to roll back if the car is on a slope as the car behaves very much like a manual car in start-stop situations. Hence, the Scirocco driver wasn't trying to reverse on purpose.  Was the horn necessary? Was it necessary to follow so close to the Scirocco seeing that he had trouble at the gantry? And was the van driver guilty of tailgating out of the carpark? Or was it simply just a case of an ill-mannered Volkswagen driver having a bad day? What do you guys reckon? Let us know in the comment box!
