Our last giveaway before Ramadan comes courtesy of freebies we got from Nissan-Renault events. Included in this gift pack is a fancy limited-edition Renault Trucks key-ring set, consisting of small heavy metal sculptures of the Renault Sherpa and Kerax “Cape To Cape” adventure trucks, as well as a booklet detailing the original adventure trip. We’re also throwing in a Nissan Altima-branded 1GB USB stick with built-in fingerprint security scanner.
Update: The winner is Bijoy John.
Exactly as the title says. Volkswagen’s Middle East office has like three or four VW Golf R hatchbacks on media duty. When we picked up the white VW Golf R earlier this month, the only one available happened to be the version without Dynamic Chassis Control, a system that adds adjustable suspension. So we simply asked for another round, this time with the DCC version, and they obliged. After driving the non-DCC car, we were already impressed, and had made up our minds that adding complicated suspension gimmickry would only add weight and nothing else. We were wrong.
Flying cars have always been a fictional desire for many since time immemorial. It is a concept only seen in sci-fi movies, enthralling the car-crazy audience and leaving them with dreams which seem impossible this century. But the wait has now come to an end. With the latest invention of the “flying-car” dubbed as the Transition, it is only a matter of time before one may see cars ascend into the air to avoid the traffic snarls on land.
Porsche has released early “spy shots” of their next-generation 911 sports car. Dubbed the 991-generation, it looks as you’d expect a 911 to look, which is to say, indistinguishable from older versions, but Porsche is making drastic changes beyond the styling.
The all-new 2012 Ford Explorer, technically a 2011 model, is now on sale in the UAE. The dealers have been quietly taking orders for the new crossover since some time now. And we are probably among the first media people in the UAE to take an unofficial look at it in the showroom.
Continuing DriveArabia’s season of giveaways, we ramp up the prizes with this ultra-limited edition gift I received at a Porsche launch event. This is an expensive 1:43-scale heavyweight metal sculpture of the Porsche Panamera in full chrome, complete with gift box.
Update: The winner is Sarin Chandrasekharan.
