Speed mobiles for the serious woman.
VOLVO V40 T5
STATS: 2.5 litre five-cylinder turbo; six-speed Geartronic auto transmission; 254hp. SPEED VIXEN: 6.1 seconds; 260km/h top speed. WHY YOU LOVE IT: Because it is strictly for hip Volvo-driving soccer mums. The V40 T5 is safe, quick, and rocks all the creature comforts. Kit and toys you’d expect from a premium hatch. ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP: If you’re the sort who loves her rustic getaways, escape to Atlantic Road, Norway. Imagine having over eight kilometres of road, which consists of bridges and causeways that connect several small islands and rocky reefs between the towns of Kristiansund and Molde. Now, visualise that V40 T5 on it with Mika blasting on the speakers and you’ve got the trappings of the definitive drive. THE ICON: Heidi Klum, because the V40 T5 is sexy and a whole lot of fun; qualities the Project Runway star and mother of four possesses in spades. PRICE ON THE ROAD: RM188,888. STATS: 3.8 litre flat-six; seven-speed PDK twin-clutch; 475hp. SPEED VIXEN: 3.5 seconds; 315km/h top speed. WHY YOU LOVE IT: The badge says it all. The Porsche 911 GT3 manages to bridge the gap of being a performance machine when the situation calls for it and an everyday car, too. Make no mistake though; this luxurious set of wheels strongly prefers the latter. ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP: Because you know your cars, try the Stelvio Pass, Italy. Nestled in the Eastern Alps, the road stands as the highest paved mountain passage (2,757m) in the region. With hairpins, straight elevated climbs, and tight turns, this will be the perfect testing ground for that 3.8 litre flat-six and PDK gearbox. THE ICON: Gina Carano – the Fast & Furious 6 star and former mixed marital arts proponent is super hot but not to be messed with. PRICE ON THE ROAD: RM1.4 million.
