A video made its way onto social media, featuring a Nissan GTR and a Mercedes-Benz A45S AMG 4MATIC Plus drag racing against each other.

It was unclear where this incident took place. 

Here's the video for your viewing pleasure:

For those that do not know, this variation of the A45S is the latest model with the highest specifications currently offered on the market. 

Japanese Vs German Engineering

Despite the late reaction from the A45S, you can see that this 2.0-litre turbocharged hatchback quickly caught onto the 3.8-litre Godzilla within seconds.

What fascinated me was the brilliance of Japanese engineering that allowed the >10 years old GTR, to go head-to-head against a modern-day sports car. 

Unfortunately, it was impossible to tell who won that drag race from the video.

Haiz...I was disappointed when I realised there wasn't any audio.

Who do you think would have won if the A45S driver had a good reaction time?

If it's an actual drag race, the GTR will win hands down.

You are right.

The puff of black smoke is not natural.

I think he may have blown a head gasket.

:D

No lah.  A very misleading video.  

This video title is only accurate if the camera car is that Mercedes Benz A45S.

Anyway, everyone in this forum knows I love Nissan cars.

    Lane-splitting between two vehicles? Don't be like this biker with no common sense

    For the uninitiated, you may be wondering why do riders practice lane-splitting? Well, at least according to riders, lane-splitting is a safer way of riding.  However, what many riders are unaware of is that lane-splitting is only safer if performed PRUDENTLY. Watch this video to see how this rider's practice of lane-splitting put himself in great danger: Notoriously Narrow Lanes This incident occurred along the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) towards Seletar Expressway (SLE). We are all aware of how narrow the two lanes are for all those who have travelled along the bend featured in the video.  Furthermore, the high heavy vehicle traffic along this route makes it even more hazardous to navigate around this bend.  As such, motorists often practice extra caution when travelling along this route.  What happened? Within seconds of the video, a motorcyclist is seen riding in between slow-moving vehicles. While in between 2 vehicles, the rider seemed to have panic-braked due to his inability to squeeze through successfully.  This resulted in the rider losing control of his motorcycle and hitting both vehicles to his side. Fortunately for the rider, he managed to avoid being involved in a potential freak accident.  I hope this serves as a learning opportunity for ALL RIDERS to practice lane-splitting PRUDENTLY, no matter how experienced one is.  Netizens' Comments This accident could have been avoided entirely.  Common sense ain't that common after all.  This one ultimate troller.     --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Car owner explodes at valet driver and terminates his services mid-trip for beating the red light

    TL;DR – A valet service turns sour for a car owner as her valet driver beats a set of red lights, and she loses all cool when he tries to attempt to do it a second time. Turn up your audio for this one.   Adulting After having a couple of drinks, if you drove to your destination, the responsible adult thing to do would be to call a valet service to pick you up and drive you home. Which is what this car owner did. But I would say her experience with the valet service was less than satisfactory and borderline horrific. The video Watch the 1min 16second video to understand what I mean. Red light 1 In the early seconds of the video, you’ll notice that the car beats a set of red lights. If the light had just turned from amber to red, I would have given the driver the benefit of the doubt. However, it’s evident that there was more than enough time to stop, but he didn’t. Even the owner of the car could sense something was going awry. Red light 2 Now I’m going to try and translate the conversation (to the best of my ability) for the non-mandarin speaking readers when the valet driver tries to beat the second set of red lights. We then hear the owner slam the door as she gets out to head over to the driver’s seat (presumably). Here’s the original post by the owner of the car which has gone viral. Online chatter I would not like to be on the receiving end of that shelling.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

In the back seat. At the same side. Online Chatter Let’s see what people have to say. Should be good. Knew someone would say something like this Honestly, just get a room.

    It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a flying spare tyre on the SLE!

    You can add this to the list of weird sightings on Singapore's expressways, including reversing on an expressway and riding a motorcycle in the nude.  Watch the video to find out what happened: This incident occurred on the Seletar Expressway (SLE). What happened? When this mishap took place, the cam car was behind a white Subaru Forester, cruising on lane 1 of the expressway. It was a pleasant and smooth drive until the Subaru Forester drove over the tyre, sending it flying directly towards the cam car and smashes right onto the cam car's bonnet. *That Subbie certainly do be flexing its SUV capability* Moments later, the cam car skilfully filters from lane 1 to the left shoulder of the expressway after spotting someone who seems to be looking for something underneath his van 🤔 Netizens' comments That would be disastrous. Also, it was lucky that the tyre did not smash into the cam car's windshield. It could end up as an accidental PR publicity for Subaru, who knows? It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt... On a side note... In such a situation, what are the possible actions cam car could take against the culprit? Would insurance coverage be applicable?   --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.
