Weekends, the time most Singaporeans come out to party and fully embrace the vibrant nightlife Singapore has to offer. Alcohol, good music, hot girls in sexy dresses, a great recipe for a good night out. For a bunch of guys and girls, the recipe for a great night out involves a different kind of liquid and music. Burning some fuel, the sound of VTEC screams and hot cars in sexy rims and body kits.Continue reading →
Time flies. It has been over a month since the conclusion of the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon. Owing to a mad work schedule, thrilling personal hobby and editing of a massive amount of photographs from this recent trip to Japan, this article came a wee bit later than expected. Nonetheless, I hope it still tickles your fancy!
After a short haul flight from Singapore, my plane touched down at Narita Airport. On a side note if any you decide to travel there, do book a flight that lands directly at Haneda Airport. It is unquestionably closer to the city center and you would not have to deal with the sheer horror of missing a connecting flight from Narita to Haneda! Fortunately for me, I flew in an entire day before the event opening. After sorting out my transit mishap, I still made it to the Tokyo Auto Salon Media Day in good time, attended the annual RWB New Year meet up at Roppongi Hills, and even went around to a handful of Japanese tuners.
For the first portion of this post, I have decided to showcase what the Japanese tuners have brought to the show and what may be fast catching on as the trends of 2014.
We haven’t posted many feature cars recently and its something that we feel quite sheepish about. In the middle of our day jobs, our after-work lives, our aim to shift our website to a better host with a more updated and user friendly layout and our constant search for opportunities to host events for the Singapore car community, we haven’t been taking the time out of our personal lives to search and organize photo shoots for new feature cars.
Our Facebook page however has been absolutely amazing and we can’t express how much we appreciate the love everyone that has liked our page has shown, constantly commenting and sharing the photos we post. We knew the Facebook page was going to hit a milestone of 500,000 likes soon and we wanted to at least have a feature on the website for your viewing pleasure. So we spent 6 hours of our Saturday night driving around searching for locations, getting shouted at by a Caucasian male who thought our cars were too loud while we were adjusting the positions and wetting our pants when we had to drive through a road block during a change of location.
The feature Evo in this post is owned by one of the most supportive friends that has been supporting TheRightWrong from the very beginning. His car was actually one of the first few cars we featured on the site but has recently undergone a complete make over. Unfortunately, he has made the difficult decision to put the car up for sale and we could not let the car get sold before giving it a final photo shoot.
The other Civic you see is owned by our very talented photographer, Neo. His civic which is heavily inspired by the many race civics from around the world sports a custom widebody and custom front bumper. You’ll be seeing more of this car sometime in the near future.
With the new Altis, Toyota also recently unveiled a concept car that looks like it learnt a little from the LFA. An incredible looking car and something I would definitely want to own if they don’t mess it up as Subaru did with the new WRX.
We at The Right Wrong are predominantly a performance car site. So you might be wondering, what is a family sedan doing on the site. Well the people at Borneo Motors sent us an invitation to take a closer look at their newest model, one of the best selling family sedans in the world. Couple that invitation with the lure of a free lunch and a test drive at The White Rabbit in Dempsey, who were we to resist such an invitation?
The early 90s gave birth to iconic cars like the Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7 FD and Godzilla of a beast the Nissan Skyline R32 GTR. I personally couldn’t wait for the era of boxy R31s to pass, which was like the middle bastard child. The 70s gave us the Hakosukas and 2000GT while the 90s gave us the above, both of which are generations of cars I love.
The terrible car system that we have locally made many people give up cars of their dreams and forced to move on to newer cars, with the 150% road tax for cars that have passed the 10th year mark, its simply not rationale to keep old cars.
HongYao is one of the many that decided to persevere in keeping cars of that era running on the our roads. Moving from a Suzuki Swift GTi, he then made the purchase of a Honda Civic EF-9, one of the few still in existent here.
First of all, thank you Red Bull Singapore for giving us this superb chance to walk into the garage of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team. Many of us have got no idea what is happening in the garages of a F1 racing team. As you guys know that this event takes place on the Marnia Bay Street Circuit and its the only F1 night race also the first street circuit in Asia.
Here i’ll show you more about this exclusive invitation to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Garage Tour.
