Range Rovers Evoque

04/12/2012 Leave a comment


In a fine day of July 2012, i did a test drive of the new 2012… In my first thought and reading review of sources from internet about this SUV and it says it was collaborate design by the soccer star David Beckham’s wife Victoria Beckham. Till recent, i had know that it was apply to Limited Edition models only.

Back to the start of my own experience of this SUV that i had test drove last month. Firstly i will talk about the exterior, it was the best design i have ever seen till now as most of it designs on the Land Rovers are so boxy, heavy drinker and a heavy weighted SUV..

The interior. I’m a 1.75m tall guys, the front seats base on my seating position, it does have a good knee room.

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.


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).


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.
