According to Carscoops, the club's chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha is said to have forked out almost S$2.70 million to buy 19 BMW i8s. Not that the chairman's wallet would hurt, as he is worth more than S$4 billion. Four players from the he championship squad didn't receive an i8 as one of them has moved to Chelsea while the three others were only briefly used as substitutes.

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute? Read our full review here!

    Expect at least three more Fast and Furious movies

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Donna Langley of Universal Studios dropped a hint saying there maybe at least three more Fast and Furious movies in the plans when questioned whether Paul Walker's death would be a deciding factor in the ending of the franchise.   While fans of the Fast and Furious movie series will be happy to hear that there will be more to come, we wonder whether the whole series is feeling kind of over stretched? Not so according to the studio as box office takings has been growing over the past three or four films internationally.   So it seems like we will see more new characters added in as the series moves along. And also more characters shifting endless gears in their cars!
