The Rise of Million-Dollar Cars and The Sensible Toyota Camry

The Rise of Million-Dollar Cars and The Sensible Toyota Camry

In this week's show, the local Automotive Industry breathes a sigh of relief as it reopens, and Singapore's postal service Singpost announces their full commitment to electrify their entire fleet by 2025.

As for car launches, we discuss the lovely new Mercedes-Benz E 300 Coupe, the highly-anticipated return of the Nissan 'Z', and two new RM20 million (each) limited-run hypercars for the Top 0.0001%: the all-new Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 and the Bugatti Bolide.

We're a little more sensible for our Used Car Reviews this week as Daniel tells us about the 2002 Toyota Camry. Now worth between RM10-20k, it's a perfect synonym for the words "dependable", "unoffensive", and "boring".
