Modern Classic Driven: 1992 Mercedes Benz 300SL-24


The 1970s and 1980s were a period where automobile development reached a certain peak. It was when manufacturers perfected the basic monocoque chassis based on the technology at that point of time. It was a pinnacle of sorts as we see manufacturers keeping the same model chassis for decades instead of the current practice of a new platform every five to seven years like most do today. We had cars like the Lancia Delta, born in 1979 and carrying on until 1995.

We had various generations of Volkswagen Golf Mk1 and Mk2 going on sale for over ten years concurrently in the 1980s and we had those Mercedes Benz cars like the W124 E-Class, the W126 S-class, the R107 SL-class and the R129 SL-class that came after the R107. These cars were deemed by their makers to be able to be in production for over a decade in terms of chassis design and only with changes to engines and equipment (to keep up with the times and electronic technology basically). It was a period of some stability in terms of automotive technology and it showed in the cars at the time.

All New A4 - really? Comparo Photos

2008 A4 B8

2016 A4 B9

All-new B9 Audi A4 previewed


The all-new 2016 Audi A4 has been previewed. The fifth generation A4 B9 series looks like a major facelifted B8 model rather than look like something totally new in every aspect. I suppose this is a major way of telling people that if isn't broke, Audi is not going to fix it.

News: Volkswagen Malaysia has just kicked their roadshow at malls in the Klang Valley

Hello folks. Volkswagen Malaysia has just kicked off their roadshow at malls in the Klang Valley in order for the public to get in touch with the brand.  
Visitors will be able to get up close and personal with the recently launched limited edition Volkswagen Beetle Bug and other models too.

The All New Alfa Romeo Giulia...and the falling Ringgit


Alfa Romeo has just launched the Giulia. It looks like a cross between something German and a  Lexus RC-F matched to a wonderful looking slant eyed front end. The German I am mentioning is the BMW 3 Series as if you took a look at the C pillar/rear doors, that BMW-ish Hoffmeister kink is there. I think it does look all angry and all. Like how an Alfa should be. But I think it could look a little more adventurous than what it is today.
