METAL Make a fashion statement with these hot wheels. Compiled by Sharmita Summugam.
Looking like it drove out of the motorways of Mars straight into the brilliant minds behind BMW, the i8 is truly the future, found today. Its ingenuity lies in its magnificent mix of futuristic, supercar sexuality with a hybrid’s phenomenal functionality. This car is light years ahead of its contemporary cruisers, peerless and pioneering in every way from its ultraefficiency to the seamless aerodynamic design. Fully decked with a six-speed Steptronic sport automatic transmission including gearshift paddles, the i8 takes driving to a whole new level. Inside, lightweight leathers and bold blue motifs craft a sleek, flowing interior that drips with a distinctive Space-Age ambience. Plug in this four-wheeled fantasy and ride into tomorrow. With one foot standing firmly on hectic highways and the other poised perfectly in the glorious racetracks, the rip-roaring new Mercedes-AMG GT S defiantly straddles both worlds, refusing to be categorised as anything other than a trailblazing, speed machine. It compromises nothing: not speed, comfort nor precision, none in the slightest. This is what it feels like to drive your dreams. Audi’s TT is the little coupé that could. Thriving on the beauty of sheer simplicity, its voluptuous curves and contours celebrate impeccable precision and detail. Though its design whispers of lean, flowing grace, the Audi TT Coupé indulges in moments of bombast via its virtual cockpit – an innovation no other car has seen – and a triumphantly turbocharged 220-hp TFSI engine. Available in 10 colours, choose from Ibis White, Scuba Blue, Mythos Black or a special Daytona Grey with pearl effect. The TT takes raw power and quiet elegance, refining it into a work of art that speaks volumes through its world-class performance.
