2012 Nissan GT-R Egoist Edition

11/06/2011 Leave a comment

Abount GT-R Egoist Edition

This unique edition will provide a great amount of interior and exterior modifications to provide the ultimate GT-R. Each unit will be unique, as customers will be able to choose from a combination of 20 interior colors, and that is just the beginning.

Power for the EGOIST edition will continue to be provided by the standard 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo engine with 530 HP at 6,400rpm and a maximum torque of 612Nm delivered from 3,200 to 6,000 rpm. All this means is that Nissan has focused more on the look of this version, while saving the power upgrades for the Club Track edition.

Nissan has revealed new images of the special edition GT-R Egoist. Also we have the official performance numbers, a sprint from 0 to 100 kmh made in 3.046 seconds while top speed is 312 kmh.

Interior and Exterior

The difference between a standard GT-R and the Egoist version is provided by a black carbon rear spoiler (also used in the SpecV) that provides stable aerodynamic performance. The car sits on lightweight and highly rigid forged aluminum-alloy wheels offered in five-layer Blue Sword Chrome Color Coating. The exterior look is finished by a Titanium exhaust system.

The most impressive changes,however, have been made on the interior. Customers can choose a combination of interior colors among 20 choices, four upper area interior colors, and 10 lower area interior colors. Seats are an exclusive quilted design with single and double stitching combined in a reticular pattern. Enhanced body grip performance (suitable for racing circuit driving), smoothness, and fit are all provided.

A very interesting feature of the interior is a Wajima Lacquer (Maki-e) GT-R Emblem placed on the center of the steering wheel that changes its beautiful coloring of Maki-e changes as time goes by.

Customers will also get a special Bose Precision Sound System with carbon composite-based woofers, which can cancel vibrations through their high rigidity and damping. In addition, sound quality is adjusted by Bose exclusively for each owner, depending on individual driving position.

Engine                                

Under the hood there is the same engine as in any standard GT-R: a 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo engine that delivers a total of 530hp at 6,400rpm and 612Nm of torque at 3,200 – 6,000rpm. Mated to a 6 speed dual clutch transmission, the engine will sprint the GT-R from 0 to 100 kmh in just 3 seconds, all this with a fuel consumption of only 8.5km/L.

Release and Pricing?

The 2012 Nissan GT-R EGOIST edition will be a Japan-only model and will be available in February 2011 at a starting price of 15,000,300 Yen (about US$184,500 at the current rates).

Comparison

The Nissan GT-R EGOIST still has to be cautious of the 911 Turbo, even in Japan. The Turbo is powered by a 3.8 Liter engine that develops 500 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque with the Sport Chrono Package. This allows the Porsche to sprint from 0 to 100 kmh in only 3.4 seconds and reach a 310 kmh top speed. For 2011, Porsche has come out with the 911 Turbo S that boosts the power output to 530Hp, matching that of the 2012 GT-R. Of course, with this special little GT-R, Nissan also adds more luxury and technology to the mix, giving the GT-R that extra edge. Working against the EGOIST is its price, as the EGOIST runs at about US$184,500 while the Porsche Turbo is priced at US$132,800 and the Turbo S at US$160,700. We think we’ll stay with the standard GT-R as it was pretty awesome on books, and it starts at US$89,950.

Personal View

Personally i’m satisfied with Nissan GT-R Egoist almost everything beside the rear center portion of the passenger seat that was blocked. If the rear portion of the passenger seat was flat and like normal vehicle that able to sit 5 passenger and rear passenger seat leg room is longer, it will be my 100% supercar.

Olam set to raise $740m, may hit acquisition trail

07/06/2011 Leave a comment
Mixed reactions from analysts to fund-raising exercise

By FELDA CHAY

(SINGAPORE) Commodities supplier Olam International is building up its war chest by raising $740 million through a share sale, with half of the amount raised likely to go towards funding acquisitions, said two persons familiar with the matter yesterday.

It is understood that Olam will sell 286.11 million new shares in three tranches, with existing shareholder Temasek Holdings alone snapping up one tranche of at least 94.41 million shares. Another tranche of 94.41 million shares will be placed to institutional shareholders.

Stock sold under the two tranches are priced at $2.60 apiece – an 8 per cent discount to Olam’s last traded price of $2.83 last Friday. Trading of its shares were halted yesterday pending an announcement on the share placement, which is expected to be out today.

BT understands that as at yesterday, the book building process has not been completed, though interest from institutional investors was very strong, said one source.

Assuming that Temasek takes up just 94.41 million shares, the final tranche of 97.29 million shares will be sold to existing shareholders at $2.56 each, on the basis of one new share for every 22 shares held. The price is a 9.5 per cent discount to Olam’s closing price on Friday.

HSBC Holdings plc, Standard Chartered plc, Credit Suisse Group AG and JPMorgan Chase & Co are arranging the offering, which represents about 13 per cent of Olam’s current issued shares.

A source said that Temasek, Olam’s chief executive Sunny Verghese and its controlling shareholder, the Chanrai family, have undertaken to mop up shares that are not taken up by existing shareholders under the preferential offering. Temasek currently has a 12.95 per cent stake in Olam.

The bulk of proceeds will likely go towards funding the group’s acquisitions, with about 30 per cent likely to be used for capital expenditure.

Analysts that BT spoke to have mixed reactions to the sale. Some noted that Temasek’s acceptance of placement shares will be an indicator of the Singapore investment company’s confidence in Olam’s prospects. Others, however, note that Olam has raised funds on several occasions in the past few years, and that its latest fund raising is unlikely to be well received by the market because of the discounts to its last traded share price.

Said Eugene Ng, an analyst at UOB-KayHian: ‘The key point here is that Temasek is one of the main investors and is raising its stake in a significant manner. When Olam previously placed shares to Temasek in May 2009, Olam had a lot of upside after that.’

Kim Eng analyst James Koh noted that the market was likely to react negatively to the discounts that the shares are being sold at. While acknowledging that this was common practice, ‘the market, for most of the time, tends to react poorly to discounts’, said Mr Koh.

He added that Olam’s share price has also been drifting lower in the last few months, making the discounts to Olam’s last traded share price even more significant.

SIAS Research vice-president Roger Tan, however, pointed out that Olam has made numerous acquisitions and investments in the last few years. In 2010, purchases that Olam made include a US$250 million takeover of US firm Gilroy Foods & Flavor’s operating assets, and its dehydrated and vegetable products business. It also partnered Africa’s Lababidi Group to set up a US$200 million port-based sugar refinery in Nigeria.

‘The way to look at Olam’s latest placement is to see who they are placing the shares to, how many people they are placing them to, the application of the funds, how the assets they purchase fit into the group, and the return on equity or return on assets of the acquisitions,’ he said.
