I’VE BEEN to just about every major motor show in every corner of the globe. I’m used to seeing sleek new models being unveiled. I’m used to seeing racecars and supercars that look incredibly fast (and often are). I’m used to seeing concept cars that are so outlandish that they often don’t even see the light of day.
MG is a British sports car maker that dates back to 1924. Its halcyon years were the 40’s through the 70’s, when it came out with some of the most iconic roadsters of the time. These included the immortal MG TC, TD and TF of the 40’s and 50’s, followed by the MGA, MGB, MGB GT coupe, and MG Midget from the 60’s through the 80’s.
PGA CARS, the exclusive importer and distributor of Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, and Bentley, recently opened a four-brand showroom located at the heart of the bustling upscale metropolis of Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig. This gallery of luxury and ultra-luxury automobiles reflects each brand’s global corporate identity, taking inspiration from their respective company’s rich history.
IN THE late 1940s, the Italians were reeling from the effects of WWII. Knowing that people lacked the ability to acquire and pay for the upkeep of four-wheeled vehicles, aircraft designer Corradino D’Ascanio -- creator of the Vespa -- came up with a solution. He designed a small, three-wheeled commercial vehicle that could help rebuild Italy’s economy from the ground, giving small entrepreneurs a chance at surviving the new financial environment.
VOLVO HAS taken a major step towards its electric future with the release of new or upgraded electrified powertrain options, which will be made available across its entire global range of sedans and SUVs.
I WASN’T a big fan of the Porsche Cayenne when it made its global debut in 2002. Sure, it had the celebrated Porsche build quality, luxury, exclusivity, and of course, performance. But what I felt it lacked, at least for its first generation, was the vaunted Porsche styling. Sure, it had Porsche styling cues, but it was a distant departure from the timelessly graceful lines of the 911.
