    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!

    Jaguar Land Rover can modernise your classic car with new headunit

    Want to keep your classic car looking period correct but still want to have some modern functionality? Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) can help.   Newly-launched, the Classic Infotainment System comes in a few variants. If you have a Jaguar XJ40, XJS or a XJ Series 3 sedan, you can get the system in chrome or black finish faceplate and is designed to fit in the DIN-1 compartment.   Land Rover owners like the Defender 90, Defender 110, Defender 130, Range Rover Classic (1993-1996), Discovery 1 (1994-1998) and Freelander 1 (1997-2004) are also able to use the system and can choose between a black or silver brushed aluminum faceplate.   In fact, other makes and models might also be able to use the system with some custom work done.   Said to provide “premium sound quality”, the head unit has a 4×45-watt output and has a customisable satellite navigation system that projects maps in either 2D or 3D on the 3.5-inch high-resolution touchscreen.   It also comes with Bluetooth, an incorporated microphone and DAB/DAB+ digital radio capabilities.   Prices for Classic Infotainment System starts from around S$2,200

    Lamborghini Huracan used as a camera car

    The Lamborghini Huracan is not exactly a workhorse but someone has turned it into one by putting a gyro-stabilized camera rig into the front boot.   The supercar, which had its high end camera rig installed by Incline Dynamic Outlet, is aptly nicknamed the 'Huracam' and has been given the ability to capture dynamic footage of high speed car chases that normal camera cars can't achieve.   Now, with more than half a million dollars worth of camera equipment present on the Lamborghini, it is unlikely the Huracan can achieve the stock century sprint figure of 3.4 seconds. That said, we believe this might be one of the fastest camera car in the world now...
