blogentry-114362-0-40209200-1547433218_thumb.jpgYes, the Honda Civic Type R is already one of the most extreme-looking cars on sale today. And yes, it can get even crazier, as proven by Mugen, a Honda-centric Japanese tuner that has taken the hot hatch to a new level visually (or a new low, depending on what you think of it).

 

From what we can see, Mugen's RC20GT package for the Civic Type R includes an absolutely wild body kit, a different rear spoiler, a carbon-fiber hood, 21-spoke wheels, and a few graphics on the front doors and fenders. The front end is completely different, with a massive grille opening that features an octagonal insert, and a lower bumper with exactly what the Type R needed—more vents and scoops. A Mugen badge replaces the red "H" logo up front, while that revered logo remains at the rear. Apart from the carbon-fiber rear spoiler—which at least appears to be around the same size as the stock Type R's spoiler—the body kit at the rear also features an aggressive diffuser with a massive single center exhaust. No interior photos are available yet, but it looks to have different seats.

 

blogentry-114362-0-16675300-1547433222_thumb.jpgWe won't know if there are any mechanical changes that we can't see until Mugen releases full details about this car. But the company does make the dubious claim that the visual mods help with aerodynamics and cooling. We're not sure we believe it, considering that Mugen's treatment seems to have messed with many of the stock Type R's functional aerodynamic elements. Mugen does make performance parts, too, though, so it seems likely that it has fitted some of its offerings to this turned-up Civic.

 

We'll learn more about Mugen's take on the Type R as the RC20GT package makes its official debut at the Tokyo auto salon next week.

    Traffic Police bike gets into accident while chasing offender

    Now this is not something the residents of Ang Mo Kio get to see everyday! A Traffic Police officer has apparently skidded on the wet floor and crashed his Yamaha bike at the lift lobby of Block 619 Ang Mo Kio. As reported by SG Road vigilante, the incident happened on 27 May 2020 and eye witnesses claim that the officer was trying to chase another motorbike through the void deck when the police officer lost control and hit the wall. The comments by netizens were generally supportive of the officer going all the way in the fight for justice, with the usual few negative views here and there.

    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!

    Red-light-beating AETOS driver exclaims "Potong Jalan" after getting T-boned by taxi!?

    A video of an accident between an AETOS car and a taxi has become viral. The video was uploaded on Singapore Road Accident's Facebook page less than 13 hours ago and has since garnered 267 shares! If you haven't seen the video, here you go! In the video, the AETOS driver makes a right turn when the right-turn arrow is in the red. The oncoming taxi was unable to brake in time and crashed head-on into the side of the AETOS car. How do we know this? The video is so blurred! It's a simple skill of deduction, my dear Watson. Spot it? Just in case, here's how it should look to make a proper right turn. Now compare it with the screenshot above. Potong Jalan siol A few second after the crash, the AETOS driver starts shouting (to no one in particular): "Potong Jalan siol."   I always thought that this phrase meant "steal" or "walked away". Like "I potong jalan-ed his girlfriend." Ooooh. Thanks, Smart Local! I digress. There was no way the taxi “potong-ed” the AETOS driver because the taxi had the right of way. If you don’t speak Malay, you might have missed this I went through the video with my Malay-speaking colleagues, and they picked up something interesting. At 0.33 – 0.35 ish of the video, the driver says "Kau suroh jalan eh?" - "you said move eh?". This was probably directed to the passenger who told him to go ahead and make the turn at the start of the video. This AETOS driver damn fast to push blame sia.   What the people say Another guy caught it too! And, yes, I hope everyone is fine as well. It was quite a hard crash. Agreed. There’s always a practical commenter. Is it?        

    BMW E34 and dashcam driver narrowly escape death with lightning-quick reflexes

    A video of two drivers speeding and almost crashing to their deaths seems to be circulating on social media, Whatsapp groups and Telegram chats. Here's the link to the 14-second video.   They almost died In the video, you can see both the BMW and dashcam driver take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision with a stationary vehicle on lane 1 (rightmost lane). If they had crashed, based on how fast they were going past other cars on the road, they would have died.  Online Chatter - Pro or lucky? I'm not even sure whether to be horrified or impressed by the display of lightning quick reflexes in the video. Netizens seem to be leaning more towards impressed. Indeed. They are waiting.
