  Sitting atop the A5 platform, the RS5 brings relentless ferocity and focus to the table. In an increasingly turbocharged world of sports cars, where even the likes of Ferrari are succumbing to the adulterated idea of forced induction, the RS5 prides itself for being a naturally aspirated machine.

The Hyundai Verna, when it was first introduced back in 2006, was a rather mature looking sedan for its time, which carried a design that did not offend anyone, though it didn’t either manage to evoke any wows. In an interim effort till Hyundai got their fludic lines right, they launched the ‘Transform’ variant, which didn’t look good, […]

Technology is everywhere, in places as private as your pockets and even within the binary laced air that we breathe. It has even made the six degrees of separation theory look obsolete.

Back in the day, post lunch excitement came from Mercedes-Benz Truck Racing, an arcade game which introduced my curious self to the world of truck racing, amazed by how so much bulk can be hustled with grace and pace on the track. Now truck racing is something that Indians are quite alien to. Although a reasonably popular sport […]

  Fast. Sometimes it isn’t what it feels like. An old exponent of the iconic Willy’s jeep travelling at 120 km/h creaking from all four corners and steered via an unassisted wheel would feel fast, manic fast to most. That speed, however, for a modern, well-engineered, mid-size automobile has induced many to sleep, forever, in […]

As I sat by the fire, next to the Ganges in Rishikesh, something made me look up.
