Brunei Fake Car News!

A picture of a Lamborghini Veneno sitting near some containers stating "Veneno has landed in Brunei" is confirmed to be fake!  This particular Veneno belongs to the Lamborghini Museum and was temporary on loan for a special event in Sepang, Kuala Lumpur.  Social media info circulating in Brunei is really getting out of hand.  Seriously this people really has nothing better to do but spread fake news and rumors!

In case you didn't know about this car,  there are only 4 Veneno Coupe in the whole world.  2 are located in U.S.A, 1 in Middle East and 1 in Italy.  The one in Italy belongs to Lamborghini Museum with designation called Number Zero.  It is the same car that was shown in the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.  

There is another variant called the Veneno Roadster in which 9 units were produced and were all sold out.  The price if you must ask is Bnd$5million for the coupe and Bnd$5.3million for the Roadster.  These two version of Veneno were based on the popular Lamborghini Aventador.  It was to commemorate Lamborghini 50th Anniversary!

Yes, please continue to dream on.

Jeep Cherokee Has Landed In Brunei

Goooood evening readers!  Happy school holiday for those of you who are having a break from school and also for parents like me enjoying taking a break from sending and picking up our kids from the hectic traffic jam in school.

This is the latest model from Jeep, called the Cherokee that was released in the State mid last year.  These photos doesn't belong to me so I credit here in advance for whoever took these photos.  These were send to me via social media and I personally called the Jeep salesperson and asked about the price.  This ride cost BND$68,000++

The front facial is subject to personal taste.  As you know me I do like unique car so this one looks pretty look.  Just don't like the rear so much because it look so subtle.  I am not sure what engine this car is fitted so I would assume it might be the 2.4 Tigershark Multiair engine given the price set for this car.  

I will visit the showroom and take a close look when I have the time this coming week.  Hopefully GHK will bring in the Trailhawk version of Cherokee.

The Day I Sat In A.....Citroen Picasso C4

Today I finally sat in a Citroen.  I always have a soft spot for French car.  They are unique in its own way.  Anyway, as I mentioned early a few of my friends are purchasing a new car.  One of them even brought me along for new car hunting.  We came across this new car from Citroen called PICASSO C4.  It is a MVP with chassis sharing with my previous car, Peugeot 5008.

There is only one spec which is this test car shown here.  It cost about $57000++.  This model is pretty spec-up.  Comes with leather seat, tons of safety feature and my favorite would be the automatic parallel and vertical parking.  Yes I shit you not this car can park itself better that most people because we tried it and it is impressive.

The exterior looks is all up to personal taste.  It has all round LED lightning front and back.  I quite like the exterior look, its funky and yet modern at the same time.  The interior is a whole new ball game. It has two LCD.  One of them is customiseable.  The dash has minimal buttons because they are all touch sensitive or touch screen types.  

That little knob there is for you to put perfume!  Yes I am not kidding.  You can purchase the perfume from the Citroen agent

Citroen has the coolest interior design in my opinion.  If you haven't seen the rest of the models I suggest you visit their showroom.

Porsche 911 GTS & Targa 4S Has Landed In Brunei

I was at QAF with my buddy sorting out his new ride when my friend at Porsche called me and told me two goodies just landed at their showroom.  To my big surprise they are the Porsche 911 Targa 4S and a striking red Porsche 911 GTS!  Although not my favorite 911 of the range, there are still stunning to look at!

What is a Targa?  As you can see from these pictures, the middle roof are hidden inside the boot.  The car roof is half opened for people who do not want the full view of a cabriolet.  Porsche has a clever design where the whole rear window section is lifted up to open/close the roof  in just a touch of a button.  You can even open/close while you are driving.  As you can see  it has the "4S" moniker, which mean it has a 3.8litre engine and 4 wheel drive system. The price for this ride as I was told should be around BND$290K!  And yes it has been booked.

The second 911 that landed in Porsche showroom is this red Carrera GTS. GTS slot just above the 911 Carrera S and below the 911 GT3.  GTS stands for Gran Touring Sport.  It has the best of both world of comfort from the 911 Carrera S and some of the sportiness of 911 GT3.  Remember the GT3 that landed a few weeks ago, as mentioned GT3 is a full on track car, some people might find it too much to handle for normal day use hence the GTS model to solve the problem. This red example also cost about BND$290K!

Yeap that is a single bolt-nut racing wheel!
