We’ve spent more time with Naza Italia in the past few months than we nor­mally do with a com­pany that only sells a hand­ful of cars a year. It be­gan with the lo­cal in­tro­duc­tion of the Fer­rari Portofino in May. One might ex­pect a lo­cal re­view of the con­vert­ible from us by now, but in­stead you got Thoriq Azmi’s write-up on the GTC4Lusso T last month. If you liked that, you’re in for quite a read this month.

If you pur­chased this mag­a­zine be­cause of the Fer­rari 812 Su­per­fast on the cover, then you’d be in­ter­ested to know it fully de­serves to be Maranello’s new­est V12 flag­ship in spite of its lu­di­crous name. The F12 Ber­linetta it dis­places was al­ready one of Fer­rari’s finest, and to be able to soak up the cock­pit of the su­per­car that has man­aged to im­prove on near per­fec­tion, let alone drive it, felt quite spe­cial. Read all about it on Page 68.

Spe­cial too was the chance to sam­ple RM6.2mil worth of Mercedes’s swanki­est mod­els, fire-breath­ing AMG mod­els in­cluded, in a sin­gle sit­ting. This was pos­si­ble dur­ing a me­dia drive from Kuala Lumper to Kuan­tan and back, ded­i­cated to Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s up­dated Dream Cars cat­a­logue. What you’ll read from Page 136 is a touch-and-go ex­pe­ri­ence of all five cars in a short pe­riod. So if there’s any model you’d like us to re­view in greater de­tail, do drop us a line.

Aside from email­ing us at the ad­dress below, you can also con­nect with us on­line via our of­fi­cial web­site (www.topgear. com.my) and our so­cial me­dia plat­forms (Face­book, In­sta­gram,

YouTube). In fact, we have some ex­clu­sive con­tent up on the web, in­clud­ing live up­dates of au­to­mo­tive events in Malaysia and be­hind-the-scenes footage from yours truly and co.

In the mean­time, en­joy the is­sue and drive safe al­ways.
