Singapore Trip

Last week I took a trip to Singapore for my health check. I saw lots of nice looking car in Singapore roads but didn't have time to grab a pic because we were constantly moving inside our car.  I saw lots of Ferrari, Bentley and Rolls Royce.  I never realise newer Bentley looks so good.   Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi is like the Toyota Vios in Brunei.  LOL! 

I was staying at my wife's aunt condominium near Orchard Road.  While I was there, I took a few interesting cars at the basement parking.  These were taking during lunch hour so most of the nicer rides were already out and about.

This beautiful metallic restored car is an Alfa Romeo GTA 1300 Junior.  Built around in the 60s, it has 1300cc twin cam (89hp) engine.  It weight less then 1000kg. This car is really a stunner to look at.  I am impressed with the restoration work especially the color chosen for the car.  I am guessing this owner has deep wallet because it is very very expensive to keep old car in Singapore road due to their sky rocketing road tax and C.O.E

This looks like a Ferrari F430 Scuderia at first glance.  But a closer inspection turns out to be a normal F430 converted Scuderia.  How can I tell?  Well the wheels is wrong and the exhaust location is wrong.  LOL.  But what can I say, it is a Ferrari and it is in Singapore.  This car probably cost closed to BND800k or more when new!

The new Porsche 911 Carrera S spotted next to the Ferrari F430.  Maybe from the same owner?

This caught my attention when we were parking at Takashimaya.  It's a charging station for electric cars!  The car on the left is Nissan Leaf and the one on the right is Renault Fluence. I didn't expect to see a Nissan Leaf real life but nevertheless it is a quite a big car.
