Toyota Unveils 86 Sports Car in Japan

The long awaited rear-wheel-drive FT-86 concept is now world premiere in its home market, Japan. Toyota newest sports car is officially known as Toyota 86 or “hachi roku”.

The unveiling occurred when Toyota president Akio Toyoda drove a production prototype down the main straight of the Fuji Speedway, south of Tokyo.

Mr Toyoda said the new rear-wheel-drive sports car was all about "waku doki" - a car that creates excitement and gets your heart racing. "I am very proud of this car," Mr Toyoda said. "Thank you for the patience of car lovers. They are going to enjoy this car."


The new 2012 Toyota 86 features the world's first horizontally opposed D-4S engine, combining "boxer" engine technology with Toyota's cutting-edge D-4S direct injection technology. The engine is installed front mid-ship to create an ultra-low centre of gravity and low inertia. It is the world's only horizontally opposed engine and rear-wheel-drive package.

The D-4S, with separate twin injectors for both direct injection and port injection, boasts a high compression ratio of 12.5:1. This provides high output and high torque over a wide range of engine speeds and contributes to improved environmental performance. The engine's redline is 7500rpm with maximum output of 147kW. Even so, the engine achieves fuel efficiency and environmental performance that rivals that of a standard 2.0-litre sedan.

The D-4S engine is mated with a six-speed manual transmission or a special sports-driving six-speed automatic transmission.


As a result, the 86 offers fun driving at a level unprecedented in earlier sports cars. It carries on the spirit of the AE86 Corolla in its aim to be a car that evolves with its owner.

The lightweight and compact rear-wheel-drive platform was designed to achieve superior handling and create the world's smallest mass-production four-passenger sports car (by volume).

The vehicle's newly developed engine delivers exceptional output and torque as well as superior response at low and medium speeds.

The rear seatbacks fold down to the front to create a luggage space that can accommodate four sports wheels or two golf bags.

The exterior design features a predatory look at the front; the sides are a modern take on Toyota's sports-car heritage; and the rear view is wide and sturdy despite the compact cabin.

The interior design seeks the essence of sports cars by emphasising the form, placement and materials of each element.

The seatbacks and cushion surfaces are designed to provide support during acceleration g-forces from the front, the back and to the sides. In addition, the shape of the front seats is designed to prevent elbows from interfering with gearshift operation.


The circular steering wheel has a diameter of 365 mm, the smallest in a Toyota-brand vehicle. The wheel's surface was optimised with exhaustive feedback from test drivers to enhance steering performance and grip.

A three-cluster meter built around the tachometer has been designed with particular attention paid to display placement, markings and typeface to enhance visibility and readability during sports driving.

Honda SM 0W-20 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil for Honda Insight

The demand for low viscosity engine oil was projected to increase from last 2 years due to raising fuel price and green initiative. With today’s engine oil technology, the low viscosity formulation is aims to reduce friction effectively and most importantly, higher efficiency as it help the engine to use less fuel.


Recently, Honda Malaysia introduced a new Honda fully synthetic engine Oil SM 0W-20. This engine oil is suitable to all Honda models except Civic Type R and Accord V6 3.5. Bear in mind, this oil is recommended for gentle light-footed drivers and not recommended for high-performance drives.

Since my Honda Insight is due for an oil change, I chose the new SM 0W-20 fully synthetic oil instead of SM 5W-30 synthetic oil. After the oil change, I immediately feel the difference as it offers a better acceleration response.

Since the hybrid vehicles like Honda Insight and Civic Hybrid are operate with stop-start, this oil able to offer extra protection against deposits for stop-and-start engine condition.

All Individual driving behaviours could be different and traffic congestion is also one of the factors that burning our precious fuel unproductively. Based on my daily route, the onboard indicator displays the new mileage is now having an average of 15.8km/litre from 14.9km/litre. To me, it is a great gain.

If you are planning to send your Honda for service, why not try the new 0W-20 fully synthetic oil. I believe you will be as satisfied as me.

A History of Michelin Man


The Michelin Man’s was created in 1898 (Creator: Idea conceived by Edouard Michelin; artist's rendition created by O'Galop) by to resemble a man made of tires, back when tires took on either a greyish-white or light, translucent beige colour.

He is also mute to represent the strong, silent type. The Michelin Man’s real name is Bibendum—meaning “drinking to be done” in Latin and referring to the notion that the firm’s new pneumatic inflatable tires could “drink up obstacles” on the road without going flat—while the word “michelin” in Spanish has acquired the meaning of “spare tire,” or folds of fatty skin around one’s waist.

Although the price is RM 169.90 and it is absolutely worth it as it is Disney original product and the sound quality is reasonably good. Usually, speakers with special design are usually doesn’t sounds good.

New Volkswagen Jetta Official Photos - 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Malaysia

If you regularly follow-up on Volkswagen cars, probably you knew that the new Volkswagen Jetta had launched in Europe and North America back in last year. Furthermore, Volkswagen had ventured with DRB-Hicom to locally assemble Volkswagen cars in Malaysia. There will be VW Passat, Jetta, and Polo. Which variants? I am unsure till date.


DB2010AU01580_small (1).jpg

There are a few photos “self-leaked” into the internet in relation to those models performing road test in Malaysia. I saw the Volkswagen Jetta there and I love it at the first sight! Personally, it is a better practical car than the Golf. In essence, it is a Golf Sedan.


Based on the Europe model, there are TDI (Diesel) and TSI (Petrol) models. In Malaysia, TDI will be an impracticable model to be marketed which I don’t know why. Probably, the diesel fuel quality still not up to standard. What’s more, there are three TSI models which available are 1.2 TSI, 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI. Likely the 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI will be selected here (just like the Golf model) and combined with a dual-clutch transmission (DSG).


For the CKD VW Jetta 1.4 TSI model, it is speculated to be marketed at the price mark between RM120k-RM130k. In the other hand, I am hoping the price will be around RM110k-RM120k.

Without further data and info, check out the photos that I posted in this article. I will keep you posted once there are more solid update and fact.
