Classic beauties
The classic car CLUB of Hong Kong each year organizes a Classic Car Show at Chater Road in Central. This year's event, held last Sunday, attracted a record-breaking number of entries - 104 classic cars - of which 34 carefully restored vehicles participated in the Concours d'Elegance.

Topless beauty
Hong kong has proved once again that it gets pole position for some of the most desirable cars in the world. The new Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Spyder was unveiled in Hong Kong recently, just a month after it made its world debut at the Frankfurt motor show, beating the likes of Singapore and Japan for the first public appearance in the Asia-Pacific region.

Toyota S-FR
The S-FR concept is a lightweight, front- engine rear-wheel-drive sports car that's said to weigh less than 900 kilograms, and to employ a 1.5-liter normally aspirated engine borrowed from Corolla. It's important to know, however, that none of the information has been confirmed.

Cars for the future
The 44th Tokyo Motor Show is being held from now until November 8 at Tokyo Big Sight, a cutting-edge exhibition complex located by Tokyo Bay. As in the past, leading car manufacturers around the world make the most of the opportunity to showcase their latest products, intriguing the public with their visions.

X-tended comfort
The all-new, second-generation BMW X1 was launched in Hong Kong last weekend at Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong.

Diamond edition
Commemorating the landmark accomplishment of representing Porsche in Hong Kong for six consecutive decades, Porsche Centre Hong Kong has unveiled a Hong Kong-only special edition of the evergreen 911 series.
