THE SPICE OF LIFE

InCar Entertainment  - - ED UNIT -

This is­sue sees an eclec­tic mix of rather un­usual fea­ture cars. There’s no ar­gu­ing with the fact that the pre­dom­i­nance of Com­modores and Fal­cons is un­matched within these pages. And not sur­pris­ingly ei­ther — en­trenched tribal ri­val­ries aside, both cars are su­perb ex­am­ples of mod­ern au­to­mo­tive de­sign fea­tur­ing a smart mix of pow­er­ful en­gine per­for­mance, cool styling, ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies and, im­por­tantly in our space, scope for cus­tomi­sa­tion.

Be that as it may, here we are in the last is­sue of the year and we bring you a phe­nom­e­nal Honda Ac­cord wagon — yes, you’ve read it right — which is ex­em­plary in terms of gear and crafts­man­ship, fol­lowed by a VW Scirocco (this one is some­what less un­usual) mix­ing sporty looks with a classy all-Alpine in­stall us­ing some of the Ja­panese gi­ant’s best kit.

The third car swings back to un­usual. None other than a Nis­san Cube packed to the rafters with Kicker gear. You see the Cube in Ja­pan al­most ev­ery­where but they are a rarer thing in these shores. And lastly, from the USA a true icon of Ital­ian au­to­mo­tive de­sign, a 1991 Lambo which has had its in­te­rior rein­vented by a pas­sion­ate owner with a taste for beauty.

And that, my friends, is a true re­flec­tion of this pub­li­ca­tion’s tenet. One of cel­e­brat­ing va­ri­ety while em­brac­ing the more fre­quently fa­mil­iar. En­joy the diver­sity!
