  1. <Aston Martin V12 Vantage officially coming in 2022 Aston Martin’s dreamy small body/big engine combo is back, a new V12 Vantage is coming next year The Aston Martin V12 Vantage is officially on its way for the 2022 model year, with confirmation a top-spec Vantage is set to return to top the current Vantage range. Destined to follow the well-trodden and desirable path of shoehorning Aston’s most potent engine into its most compact model, the new V12 Vantage has already been spotted in its development phase and so far promises to be one of next year’s most exciting supercars.

  2. British PM Boris Johnson tests positive for COVID-19 https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/coronavirus-boris-johnson-tests-positive-covid-19-uk-12583694
  3. Britain's Queen Elizabeth has summoned her grandson Prince Harry for a crisis meeting to discuss future arrangements for him and his wife Meghan following the couple’s shock announcement that they want to step back from royal duties. Prince Harry’s father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, and his elder brother Prince William, will also attend the meeting, due to take place on Monday (Jan 13) at the queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk, eastern England, a Buckingham Palace source told Reuters. Meghan, an American former TV actress, will try to join via telephone from Canada whe
  4. Tomorrow 23/06 is the referendum where UK vote whether to remain or leave the EU. Surprise nobody has started a thread on this. Or don't care? So.... Remain or leave? Good read here http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-32810887
  5. War on Plastic: 20-foot high mountains of 'recycled' British rubbish found in Malaysia Chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall exposes the plastic waste that should have been recycled but was dumped in Malaysia instead Celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has discovered mountains of plastic waste from Britain intended for recycling has been shipped 6500 miles to Malaysia then apparently simply dumped or burned. Up to 20-foot high mounds of plastic waste were uncovered by Hugh and Anita Rani as part of a new BBC documentary investigating where our waste goes and if it is being p

  7. A recent report in the Straits Times said that many investors were now buying into student accommodation in the UK. The entry prices looks very low, compared to property purchases. Everything looks hunky-dory, even with rental guarantees and all that. So, is it worth buying? Be very careful. What exactly are you buying? You have a title deed? Can it be resold easily? What is the exit strategy? Read more to find out.

  8. What happened to angmoh standard of Human Rights? Britain's MI6 aided torture of Nepal Maoists, book claims British authorities funded a four-year-long intelligence operation in Nepal that led to Maoist rebels being arrested, tortured and killed during the country's civil war, according to the author of a new book on Kathmandu. Launched in 2002, "Operation Mustang" targeted Maoist guerillas and saw British intelligence agency MI6 fund safe houses and provide training in surveillance and counter-insurgency tactics to Nepal's army and spy agency, the National Investigation Depart
  9. interesting..... and Scotland is likely to become independent in mid-Sept when that happens, Great Britain and the United Kingdom will become invalid (existed for 307 years already, since 1707) what will they be called then?
  10. This is probably one of the most spectacular-looking and second most talked about Jaguar concept of recent (The first, of course, is the C-X75 hypercar which, sadly, will never make it to daylight). So what's so spectacular about this, you may ask? First, it packs a 5.0-litre V8 with 550bhp, capable of catapulting the roadster to 100km/h in just over four seconds. Secondly, it is based on the ultra-sexy F-Type that made its local debut not too long ago. Then, there is the 'hump' which sits behind the driver, paying homage to the legendary Jaguar D-Type. A cra
  11. The BAC Mono is probably one of the most fun-to-drive track car of recent. It is likely to be one of the fastest too. Fans of Top Gear would especially find it familiar - the car was presented recently and stole the limelight when it propelled itself to the second top spot on the lap times chart. So what is the BAC Mono all about? Built by the Cheshire-born brothers - Neill and Ian Briggs - the BAC Mono was conceived with car enthusiasts in mind. Mono (short for monoposto or single seat) was designed to provide formula race car levels of handling and performance - hence an equivalent
  12. The Formula One circus will be back to outwit and outlast each other this weekend at the British Grand Prix - to take place at the iconic Silverstone circuit. But just seven days after - certain teams will return to lend their support to the Motor Sports Association's inaugural Go Motorsport Live! on the July 7th - which also happens to be the German Grand Prix. With free public access, Go Motorsport Live! has been introduced as part of National Motorsport Week (U.K.) to encourage more people to get involved in all areas of motorsport. A wide range of enthusiast motor clubs, champi
  13. The garage or workshop as we know it, is usually run by men. It's a different case if you pay a visit to the garage 'Caroline's Car'. Situated in Norwich, England, this is an all-women garage (probably the first in the world, too!) that is owned and run by women. It was established a decade ago and has now received hundreds of loyal female customers. Yet, what attracts me more is how this garage started in the first place. Well, after performing some research, I figured out that the owner, Caroline Lake, 42, used to work as an intern at a common garage. She worked at the garage for
  14. Hope it can be played. Check it out guys. Very touching. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne6wtfdQnOc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkysMZHgBIU
  15. The 360-degree advertising wrap that took place for the past two weeks on the underground tube from Nissan's advertising team covered the walls, ceiling and floor of the walkway to the Bakerloo and Victoria lines inside Oxford Circus station. The campaign highlighted Nissan's Connect technology that allows drivers to plot a journey on any device and send it remotely to their car. Featuring the strap-line 'Turn every drive into a ride with Google Send-to-Car technology', the advert gave patrons of the tube the impression that they
  16. You know what they say, "Do whatever you want, just don't get caught!" Unfortunately (or thankfully, perhaps), these teenage car thieves in the United Kingdom don't seem quite knowledgeable about such a saying. Instead, these thieves just seemed so proud of their 'stealing' ability that they even shot pictures of themselves with the cars they had successfully stolen. What amazes me more is that they even posted the pictures on Facebook, a world renowned social media, and on their phones! This led the local police to catch them red-handed, or should I say, 'bread-handed' (you'll see why). It's
  17. We have seen many luxury automakers that have lent their name to daily usable products. You would have probably seen Lamborghini laptops, Ferrari headphones etc. And now, Aston Martin is the next automaker to use their name on an everyday item used by many - a baby pram. The pram is made by British company known as Silver Cross and each pram is said to be priced around 2,000 British Pounds (around SGD$3,700). The pram will be sold exclusively at luxury retailer Harrods. The pram shares several elements from Aston Martin cars. The aluminium wheels are designed to match the on
  18. Officials from the British GT3 racing series have rejected applications from Sony's GT Academy to race in the 2013 season. It seems that the drivers from the academy are just too fast. For those who are not familiar with Sony's GT Academy, it is a programme which gives video game players of its Gran Turismo series an opportunity to be a real life racing driver. The GT Academy is the promotional brainchild of Sony Playstation Europe and Nissan was brought in to aid in this programme. Every year, since 2008, virtual life racers enter an online racing competition and the eventual w
  19. The Lotus Exige S is a fast performance machine. It comes with either a 1.8-litre straight four or a 3.5-litre V6 supercharged engine and it is not surprising that many track enthusiasts see the car as a good model to hit the racing tracks. But if someone wants something more hardcore, then read on; as Lotus has unveiled two race ready Exige models which are known as the Lotus Exige V6 Cup and V6 Cup R. Both cars are based on the V6 equipped Lotus Exige S and are built to tackle both the streets and the tracks; in other words, both cars are road legal. Both cars were recently sh
  20. A British engineering company, Xtrac, specialists of high performance and race car grade transmissions, have designed a hybridised automated manual transmission (H-AMT; designated code 1010). This particular transmission design allows future luxury and performance cars to meet the 95g/km CO2 emission requirements that will be introduced by European legislators in 2020. The crucial technical part of the transmission system is the integrated electric motor. The electric motor enables the vehicle to travel at speeds of up to 152km/h on electric power alone after which; engine power
  21. [extract] Storied tuner and engine builder, Cosworth, is known for its involvement in performance motors and also in the Formula One. Cosworth is best known for its long affiliation with Ford but they have also worked with other automakers such as Subaru. Cosworth was a major player in the Formula One for many years but somehow their involvement in Formula One ended in 2006 when they lost the contract to supply their engines to Formula One racing cars. And now, it seems that the company
  22. Just a couple of months ago, Mini announced that they will expand their line-up with a new model and that model will be the all new Mini Paceman. The Paceman is styled as a coupe interpretation of the Countryman and it is set for a launch in the United Kingdom in March 2013. Four versions of the Paceman will be made available when it arrives, including the Mini Cooper S Paceman which will have a 0-100km/h timing of around 7.5 seconds. The seventh unique member of the Mini family will sit alongside the Hatch, Clubman, Convertible, Countryman, Coupe and Roadster. The Paceman has bee
  23. Mazda UK used an MX-5 for competition in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship and the MX-5 takes on established GT cars from Lotus and Aston Martin. A race at Brands Hatch in the month of June brought the first podium finish (third place) for the team and in August, the team won second place in another race. Following the success of the Mazda MX-5 GT4 race car in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, Mazda UK and Jota Sport will be building customer MX-5 GT4 race cars to order for use in the 2013 season. The Mazda MX-5 GT4 is built by Jota Sport costs around
  24. When it comes to exotic sports and GT cars, many would say that the Italians make the best ones. But some would argue that the British are good at it too. Just take a look at the car in the pictures here. It is a Trident Iceni Grand Tourer. The United Kingdom has many small/medium sized sports car makers that makes unique cars for buyers who are looking for something a little out of the ordinary and Trident is one of them. The Trident Iceni Grand Tourer is a two-seater roadster with a diesel powered engine. The car is fitted with a General Motor-sourced 6.6 litre turbodiesel eng
  25. [extract] Jaguar recently announced that its upcoming F-Type sports car will be showcased in production form at the 2012 Paris Auto Show next month. When ready, the car will be launched in convertible form and a coupe version will follow suit. The company also confirmed that the F-Type will come in three different engine options which will include a supercharged V8. The base model will feature the company
