What’s sleek, filled with bleeding-edge automotive tech, can’t be bought and just covered 1,202 kilometres on a single charge? If your answer’s not the Benz EQXX, you’re wrong. First unveiled earlier this year, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz reckoned their (already record-breaking) initial 1,007-kilometre test drive could have gone considerably further so just a week ago, […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Munich 2022: Studio Odeonsplatz by Mercedes-Benz and the Vision EQXX"
As impressive as the rest of the museum is, there is one hall in particular that I’d reckon for those of us who live and breathe cars, is simply jaw-dropping. Filled with automotive legends and magical machines that have triumphed in competition, the hall of the silver arrows. I’m pretty sure that on any other […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Stuttgart 2021: Visiting the Mercedes-Benz museum Part 3"
I’m sure we have all played this game a few times in our lives. The dream car garage game where you’d be asked (or you would ask yourself), money notwithstanding, what 3 cars would you have in your forever garage. Whilst the third car on my list has constantly evolved as I got older, I’ve […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Stuttgart 2021: Visiting the Mercedes-Benz museum Part 2"
Spectacular, spectacular. That’s pretty much how I’d sum up the massive Mercedes-Benz museum. Spanning nine levels, 16,500 m² of floor space and over 1,500 exhibits documenting not only the history of the marque but of the automobile itself, the beautifully curated Mercedes-Benz museum is an automotive otaku’s dream come to life and worthy of an […]Read more "An Auto-Otaku in Stuttgart 2021: Visiting the Mercedes-Benz museum Part 1"
With such a lovely assortment of cars on show at the Nostalgic 2 Days show, there is no way we’d overlook some beautiful Euros on display. This may be Japan but the appreciation for import autos run deep, very deep. So let’s start with the heaviest hitter of all. The Ford GT40 Mark II. It […]Read more "Nostalgic 2 Days 2020 – Import 浪漫"
It seems to be working, our plucky little car meet. It’s been slightly over four years since we first started having a regular series of “Cars & Coffee” styled meets over at Kiliney Kopitiam (hence the name “Kopi”) and how it has grown! From a handful of friends meeting up over eggs and toast, we […]Read more "We’re cool for the Summer – Cars & Kopi Summer 2018"
In our last post, we showcased a variety of Import automobiles found on the show floor. Today, we continue with our feature on Imports but i think it’s time to up the ante just a little. It’s time to go high-end. Ladies and gentlemen, here are some of the big monied builds of the 2017 […]Read more "Tokyo Auto Salon 2017: The Euro Exposition Part 2"
Continuing from our BMW coverage, let’s move on to all the other “import” cars of the Tokyo Auto Salon of which there were indeed many! Since we left off with cars from the BMW group, let’s start off with some Minis. RK Designs from our Abarth feature brought along this very bright example loaded with […]Read more "Tokyo Auto Salon 2017: The Euro Exposition Part 1"
I don’t usually share these sort of short videos, but this W201 from Original Rare is so mind numbingly gorgeous, it’d be too selfish of me not to. If you’re feeling mighty flush with cash after watching the video, you can buy it..Read more "Heart Melting Mercedes: Original / Rare 190E 2.5-16 EVOLUTION II"
Continuing my (rather casual) assault on the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon, i find myself back into the halls of Makuhari Messe once again on an early Saturday morning. Previously we’ve taken a look at some exotic machinery as well as BMWs, so with continued focus on cars from outside of Japan, let’s take a look […]Read more "Tokyo Auto Salon 2015: Day 2, Part 1-Rise of the Imports"
