Seoul has recently revealed their plans t make their city more ‘female friendly’ – an initiative that will see the South Korean capital fork out more than $95 million in an effort to make the busy metropole more lush for the ladies.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government has said that the city overhaul is designed to make females feel more comfortable, feel safer and more welcome in the city. While this is all good and well, there is one certain aspect of he re-design that has gotten some fiery feminists – in fact, all females – a little hot under the collar.
Part of the overhaul will include new parking spaces for women only. These spaces will be closer to shop entrances, better lit (so possible muggers won’t come too close) and will be MUCH wider than the other parking spaces. And now queue the ‘oh hell no!’ from women all across the globe… (more…)
Have you ever wondered what it takes to build one of the world’s most sought after sportscars, the Audi R8? Well, perhaps you haven’t and all you really want is to own one – nevertheless, it would still be interesting to see how one is assembled, am I right?
The Drive channel on YouTube’s segment, Inside Quattro, takes you inside the famous Quattro GmbH where the R8 is assembled. This time around, they’re taking a look at the R8 V10 Plus, and what it takes to put one together. Just so you know, too.
The video is actually pretty interesting and will be well worth the watch for both all-round petrol heads as well as Audi fans.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed always promises to bring us some exciting unveilings of new cars. One of the most anticipated new releases of this year’s festival is the all new Mercedes CLS.
The latest version of Mercedes’ four door coupe will strut it’s stuff for the first time (officially) at the popular festival in West Sussex, England. The festival takes place from 26 to 29 June this year.
The new Mercedes CLS akeover is quite impressive. While the automaker obviously stuck to the classic, elegant lines that we have come to expect from the CLS, some new, modern improvements will definitely put the CLS in a league of it’s own. (more…)
The latest Batman movie is set to start shooting soon, and will also feature another famed hero – Superman. While Superman doesn’t need a car to get around (he flies, remember) Ol’ Bruce Wayne sure does. And his car, the Batmobile, is one of the most famous fictional cars ever.
Thus, it came as no surprise that Batman and automobile fans alike were more excited about the Batmobile in the new movie than the man himself. And luckily for said fans, director Zack Snyder gave them exactly what they wanted.
Snyder recently posted a mystical picture to his Twitter account – which is very obviously the backside of the (new) Batmobile. (more…)
Well this is one way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous Ford Mustang – and it’s pretty out of this world (pun intended).
A group of friends – and undoubtedly heavy Ford enthusiasts – decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang in a very unusual way. The group, from the Big Valley Ford Dealership in California decided that they would like to commemorate the momentous occasion by sending a 2015 Ford Mustang into space.
Ok, to be fair, it’s not a life-size 2015 ford Mustang, but rather a small replica of the famous car. However, small or not, the experiment delivered some amazing footage. (more…)
The BMW i8 has just been unveiled and people all around the world seem to be pretty impressed with the German automaker’s hybrid electric sports car. And now it looks like rumours are already doing the rounds of a BMW i9 in the pipeline.
According to various German media sources, BMW is already planning a 4-door, bigger version of the i8 aptly called the i9. These sources claim that the i9 might even be rolled out as early as 2016 – leaving the company with less than two years to bring the proposed i9 to life.
The i9 is reported to have a similar hybrid approach as the i8. The only difference will be that the i9 is said to be bigger inside and have four doors instead of two. (more…)
Dubbed the ‘sports car of the future’, the BMW i8 has been making a lot of waves lately since it was officially unveiled at the New York Auto Show a while back. So, naturally, the ‘man about cars’, Mr. Chris Harris himself, had to test drive the i8 and see what all the fuss is about.
Chris, who obviously lives in the UK, had specially flown to Los Angeles to take the i8 for a spin. While, admittedly he was quite annoyed with the traveling, his review of the i8 was rather good. (more…)
It’s not often that you see an ugly Audi TT. I mean, the car in itself is beautifully designed, sleek and so elegant it is almost impossible to to think of it as ‘ugly’.
However, when some certain people (with an obvious penchant for bling) decide to ‘slightly modify’ the statuesque TT, things can go horribly wrong. And unfortunately, at the recent Tuning World Bondensee in Germany, this is exactly what happened.
While there were many modified and tuned up cars that were classy and well done, one tuned up car stood out from the rest. And not in a good way at all.
The Louis Vuitton Audi TT is a hot mess. It’s so shiny that it will definitely make your eyes hurt and the other features, i.e leather padding over the engine, is so kitch that you would almost expect this car to stand in the drive way of on the Real Housewives of New Jersey’s homes. (more…)
