Making the cover this time is the Lotus Evora GTE in the hands of none other than The Stig. The most powerful (and extreme) Evora for the road, the GTE comes with 440bhp, does 0-100kmph in 4 seconds and tops out at 296km/h. We’ve also profiled Mohd Aslam Farikullah, the man who replaces Dany Bahar as Lotus’s COO.
James May got his hands on Gordon Murrays’s T27 citycar while the new BMW 3 Series meets its unusual rivals. There’s a storm of local features to keep you glued to the pages too. We pick a Malaysian-built buggy and pit it against a motocross bike at a dirt track, with two veterans at the helm.
We also have custom hotrods built by Thor from Thailand and first impressions of the Mitsubishi Mirage, another important car that is being built in Thailand and heading our way. We also got out hands on the new Maserati Granturismo Sport, in Italy.
We settle the diesel vs petrol debate in two Porsche Panameras, around Sepang, where we also drove the new Toyota 86. Whatever you do, do not miss us ‘Driving the Dictator’, where Sam Philip chauffeurs Admiral General Aladeen in his chromed Dartx Prombron.
To wrap it up, we got a tribute to Gilles Villeneuve, and all the happenings in the local automotive scene. Enjoy your copy, and do let us know what you think about it at email@example.com
