toyo proxes sport delivers top-end performance backed by cutting-edge technology

Supercars exemplify humankind’s drive to push the boundaries of automotive technology. From their sleek body shells to the powerful engines that mobilise them, every component is crucial from engineering to application. This applies to all road vehicles. And of the tens of thousands of components that make up a car, only the tyres have direct contact with the road surface. Realising the importance of tyres and how they are required to keep up with the fast-changing technologies modern cars, Toyo has developed the Proxes Sport tyre specifically for enthusiastic drivers who desire tyres befitting their high-performance vehicles. At the core of the Proxes Sport are Toyo Tires’ proprietary technologies which include T-Mode and Nano Balance Technology.

McLaren is back in Malaysia. The British marque has been somewhat inactive here for the past couple of years after Sime Darby Auto Britannia ceased its sales operations – we u nderstand that an aftersales facility is still active in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. But it now has a new brand custodian here. We can’t divulge any details at t ime of writing, but you’ll know soon enough. To celebrate McLaren’s comeback, we celebrate the Speedtail. The spiritual successor to the McLaren F1, at least i n terms of i ts seating arrangement, is the cover star of this month’s issue. But there’s more to this issue than a 1 ,036bhp hybrid hypercar that will do 403kph. While on the topic of British cars, our colleagues over in the UK have compiled an…

1 the all-new porsche 911 is newer than it looks

Attention, awed masses and hard-to-impress prosche enthusiasts:this is the eighth-generation Porsche 911, the ‘992’. Unveiled in the more-desirable ‘S’ form at the LA motor show, this is our officially official first look at the latest generation of the iconic German sports car. Design-wise, it’s obviously an evolution of the old one; a delicately feathered crank of the design knob that keeps things classy, but will cause people to say “it’s boring” because “it looks like the last one.” Yes, the silhouette is very much a 911, but the proportions have had a radical shake-up. Unlike 911s of the past, there’ll be no narrow-body cars, as the front track has been widened by 40mm, and all Carreras will have the same wide booty as the GTS. It doesn’t matter if it’s two-or…

it’s a fast version of the old 911… that’s new

Porsche has (official industry term here) ‘done a Zonda’. In the Oxford Dictionary, that’s “building ever more extreme versions of your old sports car while forging ahead with a new one”. So, while building the new 992-gen 911 and making sure collectors get their hands on the 935 special and 991 Speedster, Porsche has also found time to turn the current 911 GT2 RS into a track-only monster. Meet the Clubsport. Only 200 will be made. The singleseater keeps the same 691bhp, 3.8-litre bi-turbo flat-six and seven-speed PDK as the road car. It’s also rear-wheel drive, but shod in 310mm-wide slicks. It has a gargantuan wing and weighs 155kg less, all for a heavyweight £357,000.…

2 kubica is back where he belongs

Williams F1 has announced Robert Kubica will partner rookie George Russell for the 2019 Formula One World Championship season. Kubica made his F1 debut towards the end of 2006 with BMW Sauber. The first Polish driver to ever compete in F1, he scored his first podium in only his third race. To date, he has achieved 12 podium finishes and one win. The 33-year-old hasn’t raced in F1 for eight years, after sustaining serious injuries in a rallying crash in Italy in 2011 where his right arm was partially severed. But after years of rehabilitation and recovery, Kubica tested for Williams in 2017, and was named its reserve and development driver for the 2018 season. He said getting back into F1 was “one of the greatest achievements of [his] life”, and he…
