This stylish and contemporary looking compact MPV houses the renowned 1.5L i-VTEC engine under its hood. Capable of producing 118PS at 6600rpm for maximum power and 146 Nm at 4800rpm for maximum torque, the 4-cylinder,  16 valve SOHC engine is one of the better known technologies in the industry. The i-VTEC engine is known to produce a perfect balance between power and fuel economy.

The engine is also fitted with ecological solutions that include an airflow meter and linear air fuel ratio sensor as part of the Honda’s mission to reduce its product’s impact on the environment. It also meets the EURO 4 emission standards.

The All-New Freed engages a 5-speed automatic transmission (5AT) and a drive-by-wire (DBW) torque control system, which guarantees a smoother ride.

In the safety aspect, the All-New Freed scores 6 stars in the JNCAP crash tests for both the driver and passengers. The proprietary G-Force Control Technology (G-CON) helps disperse the crash impact across the body frame while the advanced compatibility engineering (ACE) gives better crash compatibility with other cars, thus minimizing injury.

Other safety features available on the All-New Freed are ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electrical Brake-force Distribution), BA (Brake Assist) and Grade Logic Control embedded in the Shift-Hold Control. The latter reduces the shift of extra transmission during cornering. 

Available in Brilliant White, Polished Metal and Crystal Black, the different colors of the All-New Freed exude a universal confidence and vibrancy.

The car was previously speculated to be priced at around RM120,000. However, the official price for Honda Freed is selling at RM112,980. So, is cheaper than expected. :)

New Nike's Tiger Woods Advertisement here and New Sex Allegations there

The above video runs for 32 seconds. It is a single shot, black and white, with a slight zoom at the 20-second mark.

It features Tiger Woods, in baseball cap, sleeveless sweater and polo shirt, in mid-shot and then close-up against the idyllic backdrop of the Isleworth Country Club, a golf course near his home in Florida. He stares blinking but unflinching down the barrel of the lens, replicating that moment in his stage-managed January apology when he stopped after the words "I am truly sorry", gulped, and did his best to convey sincerity.

Tiger Woods emotional expression after serial of sex scandals revealed

However, there is a new sex allegations reported about Tiger & Girl Next Door. Tiger Woods romped with a neighbour's daughter, it was claimed yesterday. Tiger has known her since she was 14.

Just as Tiger was hoping to get his career back on track, there were new claims he bedded student Raychel Coudriet, 22, in his office - next to one of his children's cribs. They are believed to have had their one-night stand last May.

A source close to Raychel said: "The two of them had sex on a couch for hours, right next to a crib for Tiger's children.

"The crib made Raychel feel guilty that she was having sex with a married man with children. But she was smitten."

Raychel is said to have told a friend they did not have safe sex and the romp was "mechanical and unemotional".

She allegedly confronted him last month, and said: "I feel violated by what you did to me." He replied: "Sorry about that."

Looks cool isn't?

Probably he felt a bit boring at the pit. Hence, he rides the Malaysia National Motor bike - Modenas around the Circuit along with his team member. This type of bike is uniquely available in South East Asia country. I guess he is trying it out. :)

Jenson Button's Girl Friend Jessica Michibata, turn up to be hottest Pit Babes of F1

Jenson Button & Jessica Michibata

JENSON BUTTON has made a flying start to the new Formula One season and we've discovered exactly why he's so revved up. Basically Jessica revs it up for Button. :P

Jenson is currently fourth in the standings after three races with 35 points. And stunning 25 year-old girlfriend Jessica Michibata, will be trackside cheering on the reigning world champion.

To my opinion, it is kind of sweet for Button of having her to follow him thru out all races in this year Grand Prix.

Somehow, there is a big 'huu haa' out there in Europe saying that Jessica Michibata, flouts Malaysia's dress code at the Sepang track outside Kuala Lumpur. Speculating that is part of the Model behaviour as she wore a floor-length gown with a plunging neckline which exposed her bra.

However, in Malaysia, the enforcement on wearing a more conservative dress code on the street is limited to the Malay race which due to their religion - Islam. As long you are not naked or semi naked on the street, I think that’s fine unless is a official performance.

Therefore, Jessica, don't worry and it’s not too revealing. It's just the paparazzi creating topics and news.

Check out the latest snaps of the gorgeous Japanese-born model.

Lewis Hamilton Hoon Car Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG set for Charity Auction



The 'Dickhead' Lewis Hamilton's hoon car set to get premium price for charity purposes after burnout at St Kilda. He was fined on summons a maximum of AUD 584.10 while his McLaren team paid to get the car out from a police impound lot.


Mercedes-Benz Australia plans to donate the price difference between the car’s market value and what it actually sells for to charity in an effort to counter suggestions it will profit from what authorities classify as "hooning".




Mercedes-Benz Australia senior manager of communications David McCarthy said, "We have no intention of profiting from this, and the amount that is achieved over the vehicle's normal value will be donated to the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a charity we've supported in the past."


An internal auction between Mercedes dealers is due to finish at midday today, with insiders tipping the V8-powered C63 AMG sedan will get substantially more than its AUD 148,900 (before on-road costs) list price, but likely having a little less rubber on its rear tyres.


Lastly, I am stunned with Hoon legislation by Victorian Government. At the good side, it helps to deliver an unexpected bonus to an Australian charity with the car Lewis Hamilton, was caught doing a burnout in likely to sell for more than its new price. However, Victoria Police deny the increased value of the car has been helped by its international publicity.
