Proton Releases New Car
Malaysian automaker Proton, which is currently suffering from slumping sales, recently unveiled their newest sedan. The Malaysian government which has a majority share in the automaker is currently having talks with Volkswagen AG. This development is considered as the reason why Proton has set high sales projection for the new sedan. The sales goal was not only for the domestic auto market but also includes exports to Europe.
The new sedan was actually meant to be unveiled before. But due to some reasons, the automaker postponed the unveiling and has only recently decided to release the car. With the unveiling of the new sedan, the Malaysian automaker is calling for the Malaysian government to push on with the deal that will see Volkswagen pouring in money on the cash-strapped automaker. In return, Volkswagen will have a strong presence in the Malaysian auto market.
The arrival of the new Proton Persona has been well received by critics and consumers alike. The styling of the new Proton sedan is considerably better looking than other Proton models. Cars made by the Malaysian automaker have been scorned by many for overemphasized designs. The new Persona though has critics saying that …
2012 Brabus 800 Coupe – 800 Hp, 1,047 Lb-Ft of Torque – Need I Say More?
Brabus does it again! They took an already powerful Mercedes Benz CL and put it on a Swedish steroid diet, locked it in a gym and took an already beautiful face and gave it a facelift! The result of all this trickery is the 2012 Brabus 800 Coupe, which is similar to the 2012 Brabus Rocket 800 which we wrote about earlier.
You will note that all of the pictures of this model were taken at the Brabus Middle East branch, which is located in Dubai, UAE. There is a good reason for that, and it’s probably because you need Middle Eastern oil money to buy one of these. To be specific, this Brabus will set you back… well there was no stated price for the car, but because it’s not disclosed we believe it’s expensive, at least a quarter-million.
And once you purchase one of these, you will know that your not-so-hard-earned oil money was well spent. I say that because you will get what is hands down the fastest and most powerful luxury coupe at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show.
1985 Ferrari Testarossa Review
Ferrari has a formidable presence in the international motoring scene and there isn’t a car enthusiast in the world who can’t automatically paint a mental picture of the Ferrari Testarossa when called to task.The cherry-red finish with the silver rims and cream-colored interior is the combination that made Ferrari famous and that made the Testarossa the most admired car of the 1980s, leagues above Chevrolet’s Stingray Corvette.
Ferrari started production of the Testarossa in 1984, with the first model to hit the streets being the 1985. For the 11 years it was in production, there were a few minor tweaks to improve the overall appeal and functionality of the sports car, but the basic model stayed the same, and the original was always considered to be the best of the bunch.
Testarossa wasn’t just an average production model for Ferrari. This was to be the car to succeed the Berlinetta Boxer and hopefully put Ferrari back on the map. Everything about Ferrari’s newest sports car just stood out as dominant and “cool.” The name itself was derived from the red cam covers – testarossa literally means “red head” in Italian.
Undoubtedly, the Ferrari Testarossa instantly took …

The Legendary 500 Superfast Series 275 GTB Ferrari
The Ferrari 300 GT 2 + 2 America model is a well recognized as a California cultural icon of the 1960’s. All in all over one thousand 300 GT 2 + 2’s were built, exported and shipped for the American market. The car started a somewhat revolution in American fast sports car yet family vehicle styling and name plate moniker look a likes. Yet there was a vehicle as well – the Ferrari Superfast Series 1 & 2 that could be said to be of far greater significance overall than the 300 GT 2 + 2 America.
Indeed it might be said and summarized by many esteemed as well as respected authorities in the exotic import sports car field that a vehicle of greater significance than the 300 GT made its very first appearance and introduction to the auto trade and sports car villains at the 1964 Paris Salon. Introduced at a time when the exclamations over the last Modena creation had died down, the 275 GTB more than made up for what some on the roads and tracks considered a somewhat mistake – the 330 GT. Overall it was an inspired …

Bentley Vs Rolls Royce – What is Better?
If you’re in the market for a new car – a really nice new car – you might be facing the tough choice between a Bentley and a Rolls Royce. As for which one is better, though, that’s hard to say. They’re both exquisite cars and they both have a lot to offer. They’re also both very expensive, so it’s not like you’ll save a lot of money buying one over the other.
For people who buy these kinds of cars, money generally isn’t an object. If you want to buy one and can’t afford to get it new, though, you can also consider buying one of them used. They still won’t qualify for the term ‘inexpensive’ but they might come a little bit closer to it than they would have if they were still brand new.
Features are important, of course, but it’s very difficult to get one of these kinds of cars that’s not fully loaded. They come with the same kinds of options that lower-priced cars have, and then some. That’s true of both of the models, too, so choosing one of them over the other based on price …
