Refreshed 2020 Lexus LC Coupe, lighter and more comfortable

In the spirit of Kaizen, or continous improvement, Lexus has just given its flagship LC Coupe an update. Changes are relatively minor and the exterior is largely untouched. One of the changes highlighted is the reduced unsprung weight by around 10 kg. This is achieved through the use of aluminium lower arms, light anti-roll bars, and new material for the coil springs. The 21-inch forged alloy wheels are also lighter than before. On top of making the suspension parts lighter, it has also been cal

If you get misty-eyed over the last tapir, then head on over to Lexus to catch a glimpse of the Lexus LC Convertible, as it might be the last of its kind. And I don’t mean last “Lexus luxury convertible with a folding hardtop”. I mean, “last luxury two-door from a mainstream manufacturer”.

Here are some cars that go fast in style and comfort like the 620 PS McLaren GT

Grand tourer or GT is a phrase to describe cars made for high speed cruising, combining performance and luxury. Traditionally, most GT cars are front-engined and are heavier, which blunts agility and nimbleness. This is where the 2019 McLaren GT pulls an advantage over traditional GT cars. McLaren’s take on a GT car is to combine luxury, practicality and agility. Priced at RM 908,000 (without tax and options), the McLaren GT is motivated by a 4.0-litre twin turbocharged V8 that makes 620 PS and

Why do concept cars look so much better than normal cars?

As young car enthusiasts, we have all been excited by concept cars and their extreme aesthetics. The excitement usually comes to an abrupt end when you see the production version of the car – sporting smaller wheels, and looking like it gained a couple of pounds. As you mature, you make sense of the decisions to make production cars the way they are. Thicker tyres offer better ride comfort and a less sexy roofline actually makes for better ergonomics. A recurring theme you might notice in concep

All Volvo models (except S90) in Malaysia, now come with a 180 km/h speed limiter

Hot on the heels of the introduction of the 2021 Volvo XC40 T5 Recharge PHEV on our shores, one can't help but notice that the top speed is now capped at 180 km/h. We did a little more digging and found that this also applied to the regular XC40 T5 R-Design, all variants of the XC60 and S60 sedan. Curiously, the S90 variants still have top speeds exceeding 180 km/h, for now. Also read: Volvo’s 180 km/h limit is so stupid, it’s actually brilliant, but remember Turbo Rolf?
