Beyond maintenance, depreciation is the biggest ‘cost’ for a car owner. However, very few see it that way because it’s not something that you feel until you have to sell your car. It’s like losing money on stocks; it’s paper loss until you actually sell it, which you have to at some point. Remember th

Prospective owner - ready your wallet. Yes, it’s singular for a reason - Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur today unveiled the one-off Aston Martin AMR Malaysia Edition, built to commemorate Merdeka next month.
