Something surprising happened today. Bugatti premiered the Chiron Sport in Malaysia. This is the new slightly lightened, sport version of the 1,500 PS super sports car will be presented by Wearnes Automotive, Bugatti’s official dealer partner in Malaysia and also for South East Asia. For the next two days, the Chiron Sport will be presented to customers through exclusive private previews and at an official launch gala this Saturday. Wearnes Automotive has been an official Bugatti dealer since 2006 and currently undertakes its sales, after-sales and marketing activities for Bugatti Automobiles through its Singapore office. What this means is that all sales inquiries will have to go through Singapore.

This is over RM12.5million before you spec it up to your heart's content. … [Read more...] about Bugatti presents the Chiron Sport in Malaysia
Carlos Sainz 5. Carlos Sainz The Spaniard’s sophomore year in Formula 1 was desperately impressive. Consider for a moment that he and Toro Rosso entered the season with few expectations, running as they were a year-old Ferrari Power Unit which would receive no updates between lights out in Australia and chequered flag in Abu Dhabi. As such it was the early races of the season in which the team hoped to make its biggest push for points and yet Sainz consistently put his car in places it had no right to be, putting in performances that promoted his team to seventh in the Constructors’ Championship, just 11 points shy of McLaren Honda. Factor in also the emotional gut punch that the promotion of Max Verstappen to Red Bull Racing created, and the realisation that a seat at the top team now could not be his for the foreseeable future, and the youngster’s ability to compose himself and carry on in the manner he did is all the more impressive. He had nine Q3 appearances in … [Read more...] about My Top 10 F1 Drivers of 2016. Part Two.
