The "Reindeer Eight" - destined to one "world famous customer" (Bentley's own words) - swaps one cylinder for every one of Santa's reindeers, the result being just a small 542hp upgrade.

The new car sports a gold 3D printed reindeer can be found in lieu of the Flying B mascot, and at the sides the V8 badges have been replaced by a special ‘Reindeer Eight’.

A carbon diffuser to the front and rear bumper, carbon side sills and a boot lid spoiler will ensure maximum aerodynamic performance at cruising altitude. And to add to the festive design, the Mulliner Driving Specification 22-inch wheels and bonnet strip are finished in gold.

The sleigh is also finished in deep red Cricket Bauble, one of the 62 colours available from the Bentley Extended Range.

A Grand Black veneer that stretches across the dashboard in the cabin displays a North Pole winter night scene - supposedly to remind the customer what's in store back home, while the seats sport heating, ventilation, a multi-mode massage and adjustable bolsters, handy, for the many miles that will be travelled in the car.

A Naughty and Nice list is also integrated in to the navigation system, apparently.

    Otters nearly didn't get to live another day at Orchard Road crossing

    Seen on Mothership.sg is a family of otters trying to cross Orchard Road near Plaza Singapura over the weekend. With more than 10 of them in the family, the leader of the pack tried a few times to cross the road despite the heavy traffic.  According to the article, the otters, which were squeaking, turned around twice as they realised it was not the right time to cross yet. We bet it must have been nerve-wrecking for everyone viewing this, especially the last part where a yellow CityCab taxi nearly couldn't stop in time for them. Thankfully, all of them made it across eventually.

    Man prowls entire carpark and did extensive research on kerb weights after being denied season parking

    That's a really long wall of text, so I'll sum it up for you. The owner of a 2011 Mercedes Viano was denied a HDB Multi-Storey Car Park season parking with the main reason being the excessive weight (more than 2,000kg) of the vehicle.   So what does he do? He proceeded to spend some time checking out the various cars parked in HDB MSCP and came up with a short list of cars that weigh more than 2,000kg. If you look at this excerpt from HDB's website regarding the parking restrictions for commercial vehicles (the Mercedes Viano is predominantly used as commercial passenger buses), it is a straightforward rule that commercial vehicles parking in a sheltered car park must not exceed 2,000kg. With the rationale behind it being safety and environmental concerns as well as "efforts to preserve the character and ambience of residential estates"... Hmm, maybe HDB just find the Viano too ugly to be parked in a housing estate? In all seriousness though, this netizen has a point, this issue likely stemmed from outdated regulations. These regulations were probably established back when commercial vehicles weighing more than 2,000kg are agricultural behemoths.   Maybe HDB should look into updating its regulations? in the meantime, I suppose this guy should get rid of the Viano and get something else, like one of the cars he mentioned instead?

    Man jailed and banned from driving because of a stomachache

    TL;DR – A man has been jailed for seven weeks and slapped with a four-year driving ban for speeding, running two red lights, driving against traffic and failing to stop for traffic police. In his defence, he had a stomachache and needed to use the toilet. The next time you’re driving on the roads and ‘kena’ the-mother-of-all-stomachaches, the urge to floor the accelerator will naturally creep into your mind. But don’t do it. Just don’t. Video from SG Road Vigilante YouTube Traffic police chase a man with irritable bowel syndrome This incident occurred sometime in March 2019 in the wee hours of the morning. A man left the Marina Bay Sands Casino and drove towards his home in Jurong. He experienced a stomachache and went up to speeds of 180km/hr (while literally trying to keep his S#$% together) A traffic police officer spotted him after exiting the PIE towards Jurong Canal Drive and gave chase, but the man did not stop for them.   What other crap did he do? Pun intended. He ran two red lights and drove against traffic… twice. When the traffic police managed to pull him over, he had already crapped his pants. The police had to line the back seat of the police car with a plastic sheet before he was allowed to ride in it.   The punishment He has pleaded guilty to one charge of rash driving and failing to stop for a police officer. He will have to serve a seven-week jail term and a four-year-long driving ban. He will begin his jail-term on the 27th of January 2021 and is currently out on $15,000 bail.   Some interesting comments I mean, if you’re that desperate, anything is possible. Can you imagine the conversation in the cell? Cellmate: “Bro, what they catch you for?” Man: “Lao Sai” It sounds like you’ll suffer the next day.   Source - Today Singapore

    🤦‍♂️ Haiyah. How can this driver reverse in such situation?

    Hello nieces and nephews, Uncle Koba here! 🤡 With the great success of my brother Uncle Roger talking about egg fried rice, which you can check out if you have never watched before. I will be regularly sharing funny and stupid clips regarding our local motorists who cannot drive or don't deserve to drive. I look exactly like my brother, uncle Roger, so these are my memes. Okay. let's begin todays video. Today we have a Mercedes-Benz GLA 180 in silver reversing just because he was on the wrong lane. Wrong lah, wrong lane lah. Singapore how big? If you miss this junction, there is an 86.43% chance that the next junction can do U-turn and go back where you want to go. Singapore government spend so much money on our road, so many scholars, you stupid never mind, can just follow what the scholar has told you.   They have so many road signs for you to follow. Why you never follow? *Sorry, not the best illustration. (But this is funny 😂) I am very surprised that this Mercedes driver managed to pull this stunt without any disturbance or obstruction given that he made the manoeuvre in a four lane road. (I think is at Chinatown).  Okay. for this, I give it to him. This video was found on My Grandfather's Road, I must give them 110 points for post-editing effect. I like the voiceover part. If you guys want to watch can watch here. 😂   Okay, end of my blog. For more entertaining accident/incident you all can share, comment or contribute at Singapore reckless drivers thread .
