The first NOVITEC Torado in Brunei!  Remember this Lamborghini Huracan?  Well the owner has decided to give it an upgrade!  As you can see the car is now fully equipped with Novitec Aero and Novitec wheels. The aero is made of light weight carbon-fibre materials. The owner also upgrade the standard exhaust to the bonkers IPE Exhaust systems!  Love to see this ride on the road soon!  Oh I got a bonus for you guys.  There is a video of the IPE exhaust clip of this car below!  Enjoy









IPE exhaust fitted! Damn solid music!

Two G-Wagon had been spotted!  An AMG G63 and G-Wagon G500Cabriolet!  The latter is pretty rare sight  and I think it is the one and only of its kind in Brunei.

Car Spotting In Brunei - Lamborghini Aventador w/DMC Kit

A Lamborghini Aventador with Brunei license plate fitted with DMC carbon aerokit.  I was told the car is currently for sale at BND$550K with the DMC kit.  The original color is Arancio Argos( Metallic Orange) and as seen here it has been foiled with chrome red wrap.  This is by far the most wicked kit ever fitted to an Aventador in my opinion.  As you can see the owner of the Lambor also has a Ferrari 458 Speciale parking right next to it.  The owner also has a Mercedes Benz SLS Black Series in his collections.   Is good to be loaded!

Someone spotted a FIAT 695 Abarth Tributo Ferrari.  If memory serves me correctly, there are two of these in Brunei that belong to the same owner so correct me if I am wrong.   We used to have FIAT dealer a decade ago but the brand wasn't selling well and it was no longer imported.  With cool new models such Fiat 500, Fiat 500c, Fiat 500L and Panda, I hope someone will reboot this brand in Brunei.

New Car In Brunei - SsangYong TIVOLI


Have you seen the latest CUV from Korean maker SsangYong lately?  Its an awesome funky looking car!  I took a quick stroll to T.C.Y Motors to have a close look at the car this afternoon. The car we are speaking here is called TIVOLI.  One of the first car with newer modern design language from SsangYong.  I never like past SsangYong interpretation of car design but this model really hit the right spot.  As a matter of fact, this model is a hit as I have been seen a lot of people driving  this model in Brunei street.

The car comes in two specs, TIVOLI Standard and TIVOLI Deluxe.  Price is BND25K++ for Standard and BND30K++ for the later.  The differences are the interior and some minor exterior features.  You can have both models fitted with original bodykit for additional BND$1K++ and I highly recommended the bodykit.

TIVOLI is fitted with a 1.6 litre 4cyclinder engine that produced 128hp with 160Nm of torque.  It is matted with a 6speed A/T and comes in 2WD only.

Car Spotting In Brunei - Mercedes Benz AMG GT "S" Edition 1


Finally this car had been spotted roaming in Brunei!  The last time I was with a friend test driving the new S-Class, we were told the AMG GTS will be coming to Brunei around September this year.  It was a special order for a customer from Jati Transport, the sole agent of Mercedes-Benz in Brunei.

I was hoping to see the Sunburst Yellow body color but this matt black looks very good too!  I remember being told this car cost upward of BND$260,000+ depending on the options.  By the way this is a 510hp with a 4.0litre V8 twin-turbo engine and takes only 3.8sec to reach the 100km.hr mark.  This is Mercedes Benz take on to compete with the Porsche 911.  Hope to see this car in person soon.

New Car In Brunei - Jaguar XE


Jaguare XE will be officially launched in Brunei this week at Radisson Hotel in Bandar.  I took the picture above showing the "JAGUAR XE" signage outside Radisson Hotel.  I was told this is an invitation event only by BIBD and Indera Motors, the Jaguar dealer of Brunei.  

Jaguar XE is the direct competitior to BMW 3-Series, Mercedes Benz C-Class and Audi A4.  We should be expecting a price range of BND$60K to BND$70K.  I currently do not know what spec is reaching our shore but I am sure it will be a spec-up model as seen from their other ranges that has been sold in Brunei from Indera Motors.  Will keep you guys posted with more pictures when I visit the showroom at Berakas.
