Car Spotting In Brunei - Mercedes Benz AMG GT "S" Edition 1

Finally this car had been spotted roaming in Brunei!  The last time I was with a friend test driving the new S-Class, we were told the AMG GTS will be coming to Brunei around September this year.  It was a special order for a customer from Jati Transport, the sole agent of Mercedes-Benz in Brunei.

I was hoping to see the Sunburst Yellow body color but this matt black looks very good too!  I remember being told this car cost upward of BND$260,000+ depending on the options.  By the way this is a 510hp with a 4.0litre V8 twin-turbo engine and takes only 3.8sec to reach the mark.  This is Mercedes Benz take on to compete with the Porsche 911.  Hope to see this car in person soon.

New Car In Brunei - Jaguar XE

Jaguare XE will be officially launched in Brunei this week at Radisson Hotel in Bandar.  I took the picture above showing the "JAGUAR XE" signage outside Radisson Hotel.  I was told this is an invitation event only by BIBD and Indera Motors, the Jaguar dealer of Brunei.  

Jaguar XE is the direct competitior to BMW 3-Series, Mercedes Benz C-Class and Audi A4.  We should be expecting a price range of BND$60K to BND$70K.  I currently do not know what spec is reaching our shore but I am sure it will be a spec-up model as seen from their other ranges that has been sold in Brunei from Indera Motors.  Will keep you guys posted with more pictures when I visit the showroom at Berakas.

This is the first time I actually seen a stock Lamborghini exhaust system
