  1. totally should read MAHATHIR want to manufact supercars instead of msia... ISTANBUL — Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has pictured the possibility of Malaysia producing "super cars" in order to further enhance the capability of the nation’s automotive industry. Dr Mahathir said Turkish supercar producer Onuk had indicated willingness to cooperate with Malaysia to produce the exotic vehicle. Dr Mahathir said he had long been aware of Turkish companies’ capability but only now he could see it first-hand. “I was aware of their capability. But there was no follow-up at the time as I was not the prime minister then, so making progress would have been difficult. “And now they are ready to collaborate... not only with that type of car (super car) but also with other cars,’’ he said . Dr Mahathir was speaking to Malaysian reporters at the end of his official visit to Turkey at the Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (ISGIA) on Sunday (July 28). The Onuk Sazan and Onuk S56/G super car models areexhibited at ISGIA and Dr Mahathir took the opportunity to check them out before he left for home. On Friday, Dr Mahathir had a dialogue session with Turkish captains of industry, and offered them Malaysian expertise to produce their own national car based on the success garnered by Proton and Perodua. Meanwhile, Dr Mahathir praised Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) success in managing (ISGIA) Turkey’s second largest airport — showing Malaysian companies’ capabilities as well as their ability to expand their operations abroad. He said that although MAHB operates airports in several other countries, ISGIA — which the company wholly owns — is the largest, handling 34 million passengers annually. “It’s much larger than KLIA (Kuala lumpur International Airport), and its management is something special. There are people who recognise our capability in this field and give us a lot of opportunities," said Dr Mahathir. On Friday, Dr Mahathir visited ISGIA, which was taken over entirely by MAHB in 2014, and witnessed its operations. Opened in January 2001, the airport is the second busiest in Turkey and the world’s busiest single-runway airport and terminal. Located some 45 km from Istanbul, it recorded 16.7 million passenger traffic movements as of June this year over first half of 2019, up 3.4 per cent over the same period last yeaar. In 2018, it posted 34.1 million passenger traffic movements and revenue of RM1.15 billion (S$382 million). NEW STRAITS TIMES

  3. Pretty fun to play with this configurator.... http://www.lambocars.com/configurator/lamboconfigurator_hfddbaahy17aaaaaaacbabaaaaaaaaaaa0aaaadbg.html Mine would look like this... Lets see who else can come up with something better!
  4. Car from Bulgaria, but is this design familiar? Bulgaria’s Alieno Is Promising A 5,221 HP Electric Hypercar https://www.carscoops.com/2018/07/bulgarias-alieno-promising-5221-hp-electric-hypercar/ It’s been some time since a claimed supercar manufacturer has appeared out of nowhere with promises of a game-changing vehicle. However, Bulgaria’s Alieno has put an end to that dry spell, unveiling its first proposed model. As per usual, it is making some bold claims. The company was reportedly formed in 2015 and gets its name from the Italian word ‘alieno’ which translates to alien. Despite having no experience in the automotive space, the company claims to be working on its first ever model, dubbed the Arcanum, complete with performance specs to rival the Devel Sixteen. Four variants are said to be in the works. The first delivers 2,610 hp and 3,275 lb-ft of torque, the next most powerful pumps out 3,482 hp and 4,366 lb-ft, a third model comes with 4,351 hp and 5,458 lb-ft while a flagship features 5,221 hp and 6,490 lb-ft. No, you’re eyes are not deceiving you, these really are the claimed figures. As you probably guessed, these insane figures won’t be achieved with a road-legal internal combustion engine. Instead, all models will utilize a “direct drive electric powertrain.” In range-topping 5,221 hp guise, this powertrain will apparently consist of six electric motors per wheel to make for a total of 24 small electric motors, each of which can be controlled individually. Performance will be brisk to say the least. While Alieno hasn’t published acceleration times, it claims the 5,221 hp model will reach 303 mph (488 km/h). The size of the battery pack, complete with graphene LiPo cells and supercapacitors, varies between 60 kWh and 180 kWh and in its largest form, delivers up to 634 miles (1020 km) of range on a single charge. The bold claims don’t stop here. Alieno says the Arcanum uses so-called “robotic suspension” alongside traditional double wishbones, pushrods, and adjustable anti-roll bars. Braking will be provided by a hydraulic system, a regenerative electromagnetic system and air braking. Alieno says its order books for the Arcanum are now open, with prices ranging from €750,000 ($878,000) to €1.5 million ($1.755 million) depending on the model. Don’t be surprised if you never hear of Alieno again.

    Is 911 turbo S a supercar?

    Hi All, had a friendly debate with a fellow petrol head. I was for turbo S being a super car. He was against . My argument was turbo S has 580hp and is probably the fastest accelerating car, minus the tesla. His argument was turbo S doesn't evoke the emotions like a lambo or ferrari. So my question is what make a car a supercar? Price, history, horespower, looks? what about aston, mclaren and bentley?

  7. Ever wonder what happens to all those supercars that go to the Persian Gulf? After seeing this images, we kinda wished we hadn't. This Jaguar XJ220 – a veritable poster child for the dawn of the modern supercar era, the one-time standard bearer of the 200 MPH Club and one of only 281 produced – made its way from Coventry to Lebanon, then through a Dubai dealership before finally ending up in Qatar. With only 900 kilometers (560 miles) on the odometer, this big cat has clearly been subjected to more abuse than any supercar lover (or animal rights activist) could possibly stand to see.

    Incredible Dubai police cars

    From its unique architecture to its amazing skyline and eyewatering prices, the United Arab Emirate of Dubai has always done things very differently. Never afraid to flash its excess wealth, and famed worldwide for its conspicuous consumption, it’s no surprise that the local constabulary has accumulated the most exotic stable of police cars in the world. Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari and more... it’s every petrolhead’s wishlist of motoring exotica, but a daily drive from some for the lucky officers serving in the desert. We take a look at the cars that will be on your tail if you’re foolish enough to consider speeding in Dubai, the land where the PCs most certainly aren’t plodders... BMW M6 Gran Coupe Engine: 4.4 V8, 552bhp | Top speed: 250km/h | 0-100km/h: 4.1 secs A relatively tame part of Dubai Police’s fleet, but BMW’s legendary ‘M’ badge signifies there’s no shortage of power. With a 4.4-litre V8, the M6 Gran Coupe is propelled from 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds, on its way to a limited top speed of 250km/h. At just under £100,000, this is one of the cheaper cars on the fleet, but rest assured those sumptuous leather seats will keep criminals comfortable. Mercedes SLS AMG Engine: 6.2 V8, 591bhp - Top speed: 320km/h - 0-100km/h: 3.7 secs As supercars go, few would deny that the Mercedes SLS AMG is a work of art, with its generously proportioned front end sweeping back to a dramatic set of gullwing doors. The Mercedes produces almost 600bhp from a 6.2-litre V8, and is capable of nearly 320km/h, doing 0-100km/h in under four seconds. Now where do the bad guys sit? Lamborghini Aventador Engine: 6.5 V12, 690bhp | Top speed: 350km/h | 0-100km/h: 2.9 secs A product of Lamborghini’s famous factory at Sant’Agata, the Aventador is striking in every way. Its rakish lines and aggressively flared arches and intakes give it a presence few cars can match. And with a massive 690bhp from the 6.5-litre V12 engine, this bull can charge to 350km/h and from 0-100km/h in a mightily impressive 2.9 seconds. But at £265,900, it’s definitely no cheap thrill. Aston Martin One-77 Engine: 7.3 V12, 750bhp | Top speed: 354km/h | 0-100km/h: 3.7 secs This is as special as they come from the legendary British maker. As the name suggests, the Aston Martin One-77 was a limited release of just 77 models worldwide. Beautifully hand-crafted materials and an obsessive attention to detail mark the car out. It’s no slouch, either, with 750bhp from a V12 and a top speed of 354km/h. The force’s accountant may be concerned at the £1,150,000 price tag, though. Ferrari FF Engine: 6.2 V12, 651bhp -| Top speed: 335km/h | 0-100km/h: 3.7 secs Practical and Ferrari are two words you rarely hear in the same sentence. The Ferrari FF is an exception, though, because it is a genuinely practical supercar with space for four occupants in a shooting brake bodystyle – the perfect choice for transporting criminals to the station quickly, thanks to its 651bhp V12 engine. Another costly addition to the Dubai police fleet. Bentley Continental GT Engine: 6.0 W12, 567bhp | Top speed: 317km/h | 0-100km/h: 4.3 secs Another British car, the Bentley Continental GT is a fine choice due to its superb refinement and quality. It’s hand-made at Bentley’s famous Crewe factory, and every effort is made to produce the perfect car, tailored to buyers’ every request. The 6.0-litre W12 engine catapults the car to just shy of 321km/h, and dispatches the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.3 seconds. Ford Shelby Mustang Roush Edition Engine: 5.0 V8, 575bhp | Top speed: 236km/h | 0-100km/h: 4.5 secs The Ford Mustang costs small change in relation to the other cars on the fleet, but doesn’t disappoint. This ‘pony car’ is more of a cobra, something its Shelby badge backs up. Modifier Roush has added even more power to the Ford, which features a highly tuned 5.0-litre V8. This pushes out 575bhp and gets the car from 0-100km/h quicker than the Bentley. It costs under a third of the price of its British rival, so what’s not to like? Whether it's for practical or publicity purposes, do you think it makes sense for the Dubai police force to run such an incredible fleet of supercars? What would the response of our tax payers be if Singapore police force attempted the same thing?

  12. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rxW_3ZAVHcKen Block's Gymkhana series still hasn't grown old for us, perhaps because it pleases the inner child we never quite managed to outgrow. But now the world has a new challenge: Supercar Gymkhana. In this case, it's Lambokhana, as Daily Driven Exotics' Damon Fryer takes this Gallardo out for a tire-punishing spin around a homemade gymkhana course. Is it as fast as Block's rally car? No. Are the props and stunts as off-the-charts mental? Nope. Are those moving donuts around a rolling tire awesome? You betcha. Bottom line: if you've ever wanted to see a Lamborghini getting thrown around in a gnarly industrial lot, powersliding its tires into oblivion, this is your video.
  13. Arash has been around since 1996. The supercar manufacturer has even churned out a number of models till present, such as the Farboud GT, Farboud GTS and AF10 - though it has yet to make an 'impact' on the market. Recently, YouTube user Shmee150 has presented a video which offers interesting insights on how things works within the small-scale boutique automaker, as well as the company's new AF8 - a 7.0-litre V8 550bhp supercar.

    More photos of Audi R8 V10 Plus

    The Audi R8 V10 Plus. What a memorable experience. Not having driven a supercar before, I was intimidated by its width at first but soon enough, i gained confidence and boy oh boy, it was a lovely drive. This is definitely ranked pretty high up there as one of my all time favourite drives. I say so because I found myself missing that V10 note, the very responsive gearbox, the security of the quattro system and yes.. did i already mention the V10 note? Anyway, here are some unpublished photos of the feature where the R8 starred in. Hope you readers like it! The V10 Plus comes with harder spring and damper rates than the lesser V8 and V10 models. It rides pretty firm but never crashes into the bumps when going over the rougher stuff. Still pretty good considering it loses the magnetic system which the normal V10 gets. 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds and 0-200km/h in 11.3 seconds. Credit goes to the engine in the above photo. Plus variant means more carbon fibre parts inside and outside. All in all, 50kg of weight has been shaved compared to the normal V10 R8. Love the way the door handle protrudes towards the driver to allow him/her to open for the door easily. Some may argue that this makes the car feel dated but to me, only a proper handbrake is right. Fun ends at 8,700rpm. Paddles are a joy to use. B&O sound system performs well but the V10 sounds better actually! Sideplates finished in carbon. Sexy. LED headlights piercing through the thin mist on a very cool night..
  15. Based on the 12C super car, albeit with the face of the McLaren P1, McLaren Automotive expands its young lineup with the McLaren 650S - which would formally debut on the 4th of March, at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show. Like the 12C, the 650S is available either as a Coupe or a Spider with a retractable folding hard top. According to McLaren, the 650S promises to redefine the high-performance supercar segment, and has been designed and developed to provide the ultimate in driver engagement on both the road and the race track. The badge designation refers to the power output - 650PS - amounting to 641bhp - from the British-built McLaren M838T twin turbo V8 engine, while 'S' stands for 'Sport'. Inspired by the McLaren P1, the front bumper and the better integrated front splitter contribute to increased levels of downforce, for a greater level of steering feeling and confidence to the driver on turn-in, while also adding to the agility and handling. A new design five-spoke lightweight forged '650S' alloy wheels are unique to the model, and are fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres for optimised road holding, handling and driver feedback. The bespoke 'MC1' branded tyres have been developed alongside the 650S by Pirelli. The McLaren Airbrake, now operates with a greater level of functionality providing increased stability. The newly developed system deploys the Airbrake when the car requires added downforce - instead of braking or when manually operated in 'Aero' mode. Below the Airbrake, a distinctive rear three-piece bumper, similar to the GT3 racing version of the 12C, compliments the aerodynamic shape of the McLaren 650S. Active aerodynamics featured on its stable of cars have been further developed and honed to ensure the ultimate performance and ability for the 650S. Enhanced levels of specifications are also available as an added option. These include fixed-back carbon racing seats, an electric steering column adjustment, a rear parking camera and extended carbon fibre throughout the interior.
  16. The Lamborghini Huracán has already obtained 700 orders during a, as yet unfinished, month-long private preview tour worldwide for VIP clients. An excellent start for the heir to the best selling Lamborghini to date, the Gallardo. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is powered by a 610-horsepower 5.2-litre normally-aspirated V10 engine, which allows it to reach a top speed of 325 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, placing it at the top of its segment. A candidate for 'star of the show' at Geneva Motor Show, it will be the first vehicle to be revealed at the exhibition, during a press conference given by President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, scheduled for 8 a.m. on Tuesday March 4th, 2014. The presentation will contain innovative elements -- not just the video of the supercar shot over the last few days in Los Angeles, but also the reveal.
  17. Lamborghini has released a new video that gives us our first look at the 2015 Huracán LP 610-4 in action. The Huracán is designed to replace the Gallardo as the Italian automaker's smallest and most affordable model. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewwsgIt6VQg The final installment of a YouTube series dubbed the "Hexagon Project," the video opens as three friends have snuck into Lamborghini's factory in an attempt to be the first to see the Huracan. Miraculously, they manage to find an unguarded example of the new supercar complete with keys, and proceed to take it for a spirited drive full of drifting and donuts before a team of security guards brings the fun to an end. Skip ahead to the 1:50 mark for the tire-scorching melee.
  18. This is the Lamborghini Huracan, the replacement for the Gallardo supercar. After numerous spy shots and leaked images Lamborghini has taken the wraps off its baby supercar, which is set for a public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March before making its way to the UK in the autumn. Initial reports suggested the car would be called the Cabrera but Lamborghini has opted instead for Huracan LP 610-4. Like the Gallardo before it, the Huracan name derives from the world of bullfighting, with this particular breed known for its courage and sense of attack. The Huracan follows Lamborghini tradition with an audacious design full of sharp edges and defined creases. It adopts several Aventador styling cues such as the narrow triangular headlights and short bonnet. Viewed in profile, the Huracan is unmistakably Lamborghini, with the rear quarter getting similar upper and lower vents around the engine bay as the Murcielago. Based on an all-new aluminium chassis with structural carbon-fibre elements, the Huracan weighs 1,422kg and will share its platform with the second-generation Audi R8, due in 2015. Nestling behind the driver is an updated version of the 5.2-litre V10 engine delivering 601bhp at 8,250rpm, up from 552bhp in the Gallardo. The engine features new “Iniezione Diretta Stratificata” (IDS), direct and indirect gasoline injections which are smartly combined resulting in more power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions compared with the Gallardo V10 engine. From a standstill the Huracan will hit 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, and stops as well as it goes, too, thanks to carbon ceramic brakes fitted as standard. Despite the substantial increase in performance, economy has also improved to 9.6km/l while emissions are down from 351g/km to 290g/km. Replacing the clunky old automated manual gearbox is a new seven-speed dual-clutch ‘box delivering power to all four wheels. Three different driving modes – Strada, Sport and Corsa - can be selected from a steering wheel mounted selector – much like the Ferrari 458 Italia’s Manettino switch. Each mode alters the throttle response, traction control and ferocity of the gear changes. The Huracán will be produced at Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese on an entirely newly-equipped production line.
  19. The replacement for the Lamborghini Gallardo will be called Huracan. The name, which means hurricane in Spanish, will adorn the new V10-powered supercar due to be unveiled later this month. Lamborghini was tipped to call the Gallardo successor the Cabrera, but sources has mentioned a strong possibility of the car being called Huracan instead. Lamborghini trademarked then name on April 19, 2012. The word was Mayan for the god of fire, wind and storms, and was then adopted by the Spanish to mean hurricane. The name was trademarked at the same time as Urus – the name for the firm’s SUV concept shown at the Beijing Motor Show in April 2012. The firm also registered Deimos, which hasn’t yet appeared on a car or concept, but could be used for the production version of the SUV, due in 2017. The Huracan is tipped to be powered by an updated version of the current naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox. The engine will develop around 600bhp. It’ll be built on a new aluminium spaceframe platform that will also underpin the next Audi R8 in 2015, albeit with different dimensions. Originally, both the Audi and Lamborghini were to use an updated version of the current R8’s platform. However, an insider told us that having driven the latest 991-generation Porsche 911 Turbo, Audi and Lamborghini engineers decided that a more radical solution would be required to reach the Porsche’s high level of dynamics. The Lamborghini’s design will be inspired by the Sesto Elemento, which debuted in 2010, while the starter button shown on the Huracan teaser website has a similar jet fighter-style flip-up starter button as the Aventador. The Huracan will go into production in the new year, and be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It has big shoes to fill – more examples of the Gallardo have been sold than any other Lamborghini, with 14,022 finding homes in its 10-year production run, which has just come to an end.
  20. The Lamborghini Gallardo is no more, after the final model rolled off the production line at the manufacturer's Sant’Agata plant in Bolognese. The Gallardo had been on sale for 10 years, with over 14 thousand(14,022 to be exact) models being produced in that time – making it the most successful model to come from the Italian supercar manufacturer. First introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003, the Gallardo marked the 40th anniversary of Lamborghini and in those 10 years we’ve seen an astonishing 35 variants of the Gallardo. The original Gallardo was powered by a 513bhp 5.0-litre V10 engine and within two years of its launch, the first special edition had been unveiled. The Gallardo SE debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005 and was limited to just 250 models, it was so popular in fact, all models had sold before any of them had been produced. Changes to the SE included a power boost to 520bhp, a redesigned roof and a new-look interior. In the same year, the first Gallardo Spyder joined the range, which was followed by the Superlegerra in 2007. This was the first in a long line of stripped out and hunkered down Gallardo supercars, which seen an increase in power from the V10 engine and extensive use of carbon fibre to reduce weight. In 2008, a restyled and updated second-generation Gallardo LP560-4 was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. It was also fitted with a new direct-injection 5.2-litre V10 engine developing 552bhp and was later followed by a Spyder, lightweight Superleggera and high-performance Spyder Performante versions, with the latter developing 562bhp – this was also the last Gallardo to be produced at the Sant’Agata plant. Next year, the replacement for the Gallardo will be unveiled, likely to be called the Cabrera. It should have close to 600bhp from Lamborghini’s latest version of the 5.2-litre V10.
  21. Recently this little friendly battle was shared around Facebook and it caught our attention. It is not everyday that we get to see supercars battle on the streets. Or rather we don’t even get to see our local supercars stretch their legs because there is nowhere for them to do it here. Not that we condone street racing... The Lamborghini Aventador in the video leading the chase is nicknamed "Pandaventador" and it seems to have quite a decent following in Malaysia. With probably more than 700bhp sent to all four wheels, it easily leaves the Nissan GT-R behind with its immense acceleration. Heavy traffic? Not an issue with the Aventador as the driver weaves in and out of traffic at breakneck speeds. At one point during the chase, the GT-R's in-car camera recorded speeds of more than 200km/h. http://dai.ly/x156rq2 At the end of the video, the GT-R is seen catching up with a Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Part 2 anyone?
  22. http://dai.ly/x14jt3d Porsche recently showcased its 918 Spyder at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It is all common for auto makers to showcase their latest products at one of the globe's biggest and most awaited car shows, much less for a halo car. But the people from Stuttgart did more than that. While a team was preparing the final production version of the 918 for its world premiere at Frankfurt, another brought it out for a spin at the Nurburgring. The result was a record-breaking 6:57. That puts the Porsche right behind the barely legal Radical SR8, overtaking the Dodge Viper ACR (7:12), which held the fastest street going production car record for two years. Now jump to the video to catch a glimpse of the 918 in action.

    The wait is almost over. Or is it?

    We were duly impressed when the concept was shown some years ago. Then, the people at Porsche got cunning and roped back fond memories of its excellence in motorsports - by adorning the 918 with Gulf livery. And it seems that the taunting isn't all over. The marque recently showcased an 'almost-ready' for production model at the Pebble Beach Concours. Hypercars are highly desirable. They are the epitome of the motoring world (you can tell from the term 'hyper'), and they fuel the dreams of boys (and men alike). And we'd like to believe that the 918 Spyder belongs to this breed. While McLaren and Ferrari have done their duty in giving the 918 rivaling pressure, they haven't been as pro-active (or should we say deceptive) in teasing their hypercars to the audiences. Think of it as hanging out a piece of meat in front of a hungry croc. It gets the croc anticipating, surely, but at times it can be frustrating. Personally, we like how the air has styled the P1. The Ferrari people have also penned the LaFerrari (without the help of Pininfarina) in a wonderful way. But credits where it's due, the 918 still carries its own appeal (we dare say it's the prettiest) among the trio. Look at the outrageous diffuser that flanks the rump. Porsches are usually subtle, but not this. We can be prejudiced, but we bet our last dollar that it will emit some mind-blowing exhaust note. Not to mention how it looks jutting out from the top of the engine bay. We hate to end off (almost) every blog posts hoping to see the car featured on our local shores. But seriously, don't you wish to see this? Meanwhile, if you're reading this Porsche, show us the final production model already.

    NSX is almost here. Almost.

    http://dai.ly/x12sed6 The all new NSX is and will be one of the most awaited supercars when it hits the showrooms - scheduled for release in 2015. And it seems that works is well underway, with the prototype caught undergoing testing at a track in Ohio, U.S.A. The NSX has no doubt achieved a tall status, worthy to be one of the all-time-greats. The halo car from Honda is one of the first proper supercars from Japan that packs the performance and dynamics to rival the bigger counterparts from the Europeans. The new version will no doubt have a tall hat to fill. To help it in its course, Honda (and its American arm Acura) will equip it with a myriad of cutting edge technologies. For instance, the new car will be 'hybridised', with two motors up front driving each of the wheels - which effectively grants it all-wheel traction. The electric motors will also supply positive or negative torque (or drag, as we know) to deliver a more dynamic driving experience than the current AWD systems. How cool is that? From the looks of it, the new car definitely has got what it takes to turn eyes - the supercar way. This, especially after being starred in one of the very cool Ironman sequential - fans of the movie will be typically fond of it. Not to mention the aural appeal - that is if there isn't any alterations done to the soundtrack (as in the video). Words from the higher management of the marque seem to point towards that of a possible Right-Hand Drive variant at some point of time.
