Permaisuri Thursday // M135i on BBS

Meet BMW’s latest creation from its BMW Performance division. No, it’s not one of those full-blown performance-focused M cars. Compared to the 1M coupe, for example, this M135i shares more of its traits to the standard 1-series hatchbacks, rather than the limited-run coupe. An angry-bird-looking facia with a sleek rear end, the M135i’s design and functionalities resembles those of BMW’s …

HnP’s Visit to Autohaus RWB Thailand // Photo Coverage

RAUH-Welt Begriff (RWB). Which translates to “Rough World Perception” in English. A mystical recreation of track-ready air-cooled Porsche’s initiated by Akira Nakai from Japan. Widened bodies. Deep-dished wheels. Outrageous aeros. Authentic. Unique. Explosive. These genetically altered creatures aren’t for the close-minded car enthusiasts. They are art-like. Japanese-culture design dialed all the way up to 11, infused into European classics. And …

Primetime // Lukman’s GT86

The mountains. Pitch dark. Screams of revving engines in the distance. Dancing headlights. Screeching tires. Coming closer every seconds. Upshifts. Downshifts. Revving symphonies among what seems to be two cars racing across the mountain roads. It was getting louder. And louder. Breaking silence as they passed. Coming closer and closer. Moments later a flash of pop-up headlights passed by right …

Art in Motion // Ronny’s Phantom Hot Rod

In the world of custom cars, we can often separate mods into two different kinds of styles: the controversial vs the conventional. Aggressive fitment, DUB, Lowrider and VIP styles, for example, can often be found as controversial ones. Pushing out boundaries and going as far as sacrificing performance/function for the sake of looks. All about breaking necks all day. Go …

Untamed // Mario’s E92 on Volk Rays G2

Singapore. A country so small that the government is now discouraging its residents even further from owning private vehicles. High taxes and ownership fees. High daily expenses (gas and parking fees). Speed limits. Restrictive aftermarket modification rules. All these have raised huge bars of steel surrounding Singaporean motorheads. Even the fact of owning a car has become merely a dream …

Sound of Glory // Arie’s C63 AMG on BC Forged

If there’s ever a car lacking an audio system and yet I wouldn’t be complaining about, it’s going to be the C63 AMG. I’m not entirely sure as to what Mercedes has done in the engine and piping compartment, but the noise that this thing makes is downright magnificent. Rumbly grumps with just the right amount of boom. It almost …

Against The Current // E90 on Volk Rays G12

German vs Japanese. What’s your take on these two countries when it comes to cars? Are the Germans always better at vehicular engineering compared to the Japanese? Has the phrase “German Engineered” become no more than one of those overly used promotional materials? Then how could you explain the dominance of Japanese cars at third-party vehicle-reliability-ranks such as J.D. Power’s …

Permaisuri Thursday // Ferrari California on Forgiato

Seems like we are seeing an increasing number of customers opting for Forgiato wheels at Permaisuri these days. Last month we had the striking black on black Jaguar XKR-S and today we have this Ferrari California wearing the same Forgiato model but a different wheel-face profile. With a design that combines five-star mesh with a concave surface, the Forgiato Maglia …
