blogentry-133713-0-64514800-1546424508_thumb.jpgThis news is slightly late but these are ex-Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson's five best cars of 2018.

 

As seen on Carscoops and published first in The Sunday Times, Clarkson has listed his top five cars of the year.

 

Bringing up the rear of the five is Aston Martin's Vantage and the Bentley's Continental GT. Clarkson didn't like the previous Continental GTs as they more of a 'footballer's car' but grew to like the new one now. As a fan of previous Vantages, the new one did not need to try hard to impress him but he says its now as good as a Porsche 911 in terms of 'providing excitement'.

 

In third place is Alpina's B5 and he feels that it is 'easily the best 5-series I’ve driven' thanks to it being able to blend power and comfort with a 600bhp V8 engine up front.

 

Taking second is Porsche's 911 GT2 RS. Not usually a fan of the 911, this is a surprise and he even awarded it full marks (five out of five available stars), making it the only car other than the first-placed car to get a perfect score.

 

That leaves us with first place which goes to the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. According to Clarkson, the Performante is one of the most exciting car you can buy and is a car with an engine 'that roars and purrs at the same time'.

    The end of CB does not stop PMDs from riding on the road

    With the end of the Circuit Breaker measures, more people have resumed working, creating more traffic on our roads. But that has not stop this rider from riding recklessly on his Personal Mobility Device (PMD) in Sembawang. As reported by SG Road Vigilante, the rider can be seen overtaking a car that is moving away from the traffic lights before keeping up to speed with it. In fact, the video which was shot on the 4th of June, showed the rider overtaking a motorcycle in the next lane. Judging from the 20 seconds plus clip, we reckon he could have been doing twice the legal speed limit of PMDs (25km/h). Naturally, netizens were quick to slam him... Should we be tolerating this? Watch the video of the PMD rider here! 101385818_2673239402892083_8980883442018037830_n.mp4

    Mitsubishi Lancer and Audi TT survive one close shave!

    Now that is one close shave. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page, an Audi TT failed to stop at the give way line, nearly crashing into a Mitsubishi Lancer Ex which had the right of way on 29th of April  Eagle-eyed readers would have definitely spotted the P-plate sign on the Audi, signaling to us that this might just be a rookie's honest mistake. In our opinion, we thought the camera car would have gotten a larger shock, seeing the Lancer swerve into his lane along Sengkang West Road. On another note, should the Lancer have slowed down instead of (recklessly)accelerating into the camera car's lane?  Let us know in the comments below! 94921823_310296959954310_3878032568351719424_n.mp4

    Youths use Circuit Breaker period to ride PMDs in CTE tunnel!

    With roads pretty much empty under this current semi-lockdown period, some youths have been spotted making use of the empty roads to ride their PMDs. As seen on a facebook page SG Reckless PMD Riders, three youths can be seen in the short Instagram video riding next to each other at high speed in the CTE Tunnel. Admittedly, the clip isn't of the best quality but it does seem like they were doing in excess of 40km/h, well over the speed limits of e-scooter.  Of course, it doesn't matter as no one is allowed to be using their PMDs on the public road.  In fact, they aren't even supposed to be out of their homes at all and going for joyrides! Check out some of the comments on the page. Not suprisingly, they were not very pleasant. SG-Reckless-PMD-Riders-PMD-high-speed-at-CTE-Facebook.mp4

    Mazda CX-5 caught in flood waters!

    Yes, we know SUVs are all what consumers today want. But as car enthusiasts, they are a no-no in terms of driving fun. Now, here's another example of why SUVs aren't as cool or tough as they look. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's page on 30th April, a Mazda CX-5 was spotted at Lorong Gambir going through a pool of standing water after the day's torrential rain. It all seemed fine and dandy until a photo of the car being towed away was featured. We have no idea how bad the car was damaged by the flood but judging from the photo, the bow wave created by the Mazda was pretty high and water could have gone into its intake system, causing some internal damage. We hope that is not the case and that it is just some electrical issues that caused the car to be immobilised.  We also hope the older generation Silver CX-5 that was in one of the photos survived the flood too!
