Not at all, although the origins of the word came from the Kashmir area from the Persian times, we are fortunate that many other locations are now producing cashmere. One in particular is in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is the biggest producer of cashmere goats in the wool. Vary the pressure when working with color to give the sketch shadows and highlights. Never mind coloring outside the lines, because neatness in drawing doesn count much compared with the tangible creation that results from the idea. Some designers even purposefully color outside the outline, making the sketch more artistic and abstract. Many films of the 1940s centered on the trials and tribulations of the brave men and women fighting for freedom in Europe and the Pacific. In order to express its support for the hardships and rations endured during the War by regular citizens, Hollywood created simple and subdued costumes during this period. Women dressed in simple suits or slacks with sensible shoes. Batman Forever Return of Swamp Thing (Truly bad but I couldn make a strong enough case to call it a superhero film) Elektra Meteor Man (This film almost made my list but I left if off since it is mainly a spoof) Ghost Rider Dick Tracy And finally, I have to mention one film that was excluded that perhaps deserves the number one spot and that the 1994 Fantastic Four film that was never released theatrically or on video although it been heavily bootlegged. Intending it to be a $40 big budget film, the producer, Neu Constantin was about to lose his rights to the film and had to produce something. He hired director Roger Corman to make the film but not for $40 million. Matchy Matchy doesn't always work in the fashion world because sometimes you have to mix and match your outfits along with a little color. With the rules of wearing white after labor day doesn't really apply anymore. In fashion, you'll need to take certain risks without being afraid to strut your stuff in those outfits that you own. Are you one of those people that know exactly what you want but you have trouble finding it. Try looking for it on Ebay. You will be shocked to find exactly what you are looking for in a very reasonable price. Should petite women buy, tweak, or skip the animal influences trend for fall/winter 2010/2011? I say tweak on this fall fashion trend. Furs, whether real or faux, tend to be quite bulky, so petite women should wear them with care. For example, a fur lined hood may work better than a full length fur coat.isabel marant sneaker

On a whole, the high temperatures wreaked havoc at round 7 where Team FXPrimus Aylezo was one of the casualties on that day.  Team FXPrimus Aylezo showed a strong start with Afiq Yazid in pole position. Afiq took advantage of the improved track conditions to maintain his lead into turn one. Then at turn three, Akihiro Nakaya took Afiq on the inside for the lead.

“I had a really good start but Nakaya took me at turn three. I didn’t want to have a battle with him as he was in a different class so I let him pass and maintained P2. I followed him for the next two or three laps then he spun right in front of me. It was quite a bad crash causing the Safety Car to come out and leaving us to get all bunched up again.” said Afiq.

Zen Low took over the wheel from Afiq and knowing that the track temperatures causes the brakes to quickly overheat, he was extra cautions and tested the brakes as he got in the car. At his first turn, disaster struck. The brakes failed completely as Zen was powering down to take a turn. Zen waited for the rescue vehicle which pushed him back onto track. By then, the team was two laps behind. Despite the bad condition of the car, the team managed to brought the car home third in class.At Round 8, Team FXPrimus Aylezo showed its speed and great teamwork as they set the fastest time of the day but despite their speed and efficiency, luck was not on their side.

Zen started the race for the team from position 6 and despite the cooler weather, the team was still cautious with the brakes. As the lights turned green, Zen was off at a impressive pace taking two cars before turn one and kept it clean. Then at turn 12 he was ‘pushed’ off the line into the grass by Dilantha Malagamuwa. Zen managed to recover, losing one position and rejoined the race in a steady pace before handing the car over to his teammate Afiq Yazid.

Zen pass the wheel over to Afiq. He started out cautiously, making sure the brakes were not overheated. After a few laps, he started to put his head down and began to push, setting the fastest lap along the way.Just as he caught up to the leading pack, disaster struck the team again. The rear was slipping at the turns and the car was ‘nervous’ under braking, It was a puncture, Afiq brought the car in slowly to the pit.When Afiq reached the pit, the rear left tyre was shredded and the team was down the order, almost two laps behind. After the tyre change, Afiq pushed on, crossing the line but just missing out the podium. However, the team still managed to collect vital Championship points for third in class.

The 2014 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Asia will take the team to five race circuits around Asia, the season started in May at Sepang International Circuit before heading to Indonesia, to Japan and China. The series will have its finale in Malaysia and the World Final in November.

Sime Darby Auto Performance introduces the new Porsche Macan in Malaysia

Porsche is expanding its range to include a whole new class of vehicle. The Macan is the first Porsche model to break into the compact SUV segment and is poised to set new standards in the field of driving dynamics and enjoyment.

Sime Darby Auto Performance introduces the new Porsche Macan in Malaysia

Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), the authorised importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, has introduced all variants of the highly anticipated new Macan model to include the highest of its range the Macan Turbo, Macan S, Macan S Diesel and the Macan is now available in Malaysia market.

“Porsche Macan is the first sports car in the compact SUV segment and it is the fifth model line-up for the Porsche brand. It combines all the typical Porsche driving characteristics with all the benefits of what a compact SUV can offer in the everyday life. I am certain that with the new Macan, we will be able to reach out to new owners who are looking into joining the Porsche family for the first time as well as to excite our long-term customers,” said Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of SDAP.

The Macan will be making an appearance in Paragon Mall, Penang from 19th to 21st September 2014 and Bangsar Shopping Centre from 15th to 19th October 2014 for an opportunity to the Malaysian public to have a closer look at Porsche’s fifth model range. The Macan model range is now available for bookings at Porsche Centre Damansara and Porsche Centre Glenmarie.

Sime Darby Auto Performance introduces the new Porsche Macan in Malaysia

The new Macan is the sports car of the compact SUV segment. A Porsche through and through, the Macan is setting benchmarks in terms of driving dynamics and enjoyment – both on paved streets and off-road terrain. The Macan brings together the most powerful engine range in its class with the sporty seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and one of the finest drive systems in the world – Porsche Traction Management (PTM) in conjunction with a sporty mix of tyres, fitted as standard. Furthermore, the new Porsche model line offers a choice of three sporty chassis versions, one of which features air suspension –an exclusive in the Macan’s segment. 

The sporty DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is immediately recognisable in the design. Many details are reminiscent of the iconic 911 sports car and the technological bench-mark 918 model, and the Sports Utility Vehicle is unrivalled in its flat and broad profile on the road. The wraparound bonnet and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporty elegance and powerful dynamics. Many of the design elements have been taken from Porsche sports cars and enhanced for the Macan, making it clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan heralds the first sports car in the compact SUV segment. 

The range of equipment fitted on the Macan as standard is extensive, and includes the all-wheel drive, PDK, multi-function sport steering wheel with shift paddles, large wheels, high performance audio system and an electrically operated tailgate. The list of optional special equipment offers further exclusive highlights, such as the air suspension system: The Macan is the only vehicle in its segment to feature such a system. There is also the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) system, which has been specially tailored to the Macan. This system distributes varying levels of drive torque to the rear wheels and works in conjunction with an electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock. The list of Porsche options includes the much sought-after dynamic high beam forming part of the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), which continuously adjusts the headlight level in keeping with the traffic ahead and any oncoming traffic. A choice of premium-quality audio equipment is available in the form of the optional sound systems from Burmester® and Bose.

A new feature in the Macan is the wraparound bonnet that creates an impressive design detail, enclosing the headlights and extending down to the wheel arches. The imposing size of the bonnet and its precision lines running to the front of the vehicle give the Macan a broad and powerful appearance, while the seamless surface of the bonnet presents a clean front to the vehicle. 

The new Macan adopts the current DNA of the 918 Spyder in the form of the basic shape of its main headlights, while the sideblades at the bottom of the front and rear doors are reminiscent of the lower door seams on the hybrid super sports car. Combined with the sophisticated door handles, this makes the doors appear narrower and the sides significantly more sporty and streamlined. On the Macan S and Macan S Diesel, the sideblades are painted in Lava Black as standard. The Macan Turbo features sideblades painted in the same colour as the exterior (optional for Macan S and Macan S Diesel), adding to the classic elegance of its look. Sideblades in Genuine Carbon, available for all models as an option, add extra emphasis to the Macan’s sporty character. On the inside, the Macan is fitted with a multi-function sports steering wheel as standard, the design of which is completely new and based on the 918 Spyder.

A further design highlight on the side view is its sporty sloping roof line which creates a sharp profile and emphasises the dynamic nature of the vehicle, while the design lines running to the rear of the vehicle accentuate the broad, sculpted wings. Together with what are known as the window graphics – the edges of all lateral glass surfaces – and the shape of the D-pillar, these design lines are a nod to the design of the 911.

The rear lights on the Macan are another striking feature, boasting an extremely compact three-dimensional design and LED technology – a further reference to the 918 Spyder. On all models, the rear diffuser is flanked on both sides by twin tailpipes – round on the Macan S and Macan S Diesel and square on the Turbo. All models are available with sport tailpipes made from chrome-plated stainless steel as an option.

About the Macan

Sime Darby Auto Performance introduces the new Porsche Macan in Malaysia

The all new Macan, is a full articulation of Porsche’s commitment to challenge the limits of what a sports car can be. It features a powerful and extremely efficient in-line four cylinder petrol engine with turbocharging, 2.0 litres displacement which delivers 237 hp (174 kW). Fuel consumption is enhanced by its design: as measured in the NEDC, the fuel consumption of Macan is 7.2 litres per 100 kilometres, making it among the most efficient compact SUV in its class. Yet the Macan delivers driving performance – accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, with top speed of 223 km/h.

About the Macan S

The Macan S is equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine delivering 340 bhp (250 kW) and also features an active all-wheel drive with an electronically controlled, map-controlled multi-plate clutch. This all-wheel drive is fitted on all Macan models. A seven-speed double-clutch transmission transfers power as required and almost without any interruption in tractive force, enabling the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds (or 5.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package fitted). The vehicle reaches a top speed of 254 km/h, and its NEDC* fuel consumption figures are between 9.0 and 8.7 litres/100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 emissions level of between 212 and 204 g/km.

About the Macan S Diesel

The Macan S Diesel is the economical long-distance runner of the three Macan models. Its 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine achieves NEDC* fuel consumption figures of between just 6.3 and 6.1 litres/100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 value of between 164 and 159 g/km. Nevertheless, the Macan S Diesel accelerates from 0 to 100 km in just 6.3 seconds (or 6.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono package fitted) thanks to its 258-bhp (190-kW) engine, and achieves a top speed of 230 km/h.

About the Macan Turbo

Sime Darby Auto Performance introduces the new Porsche Macan in Malaysia

As the top model in the Macan model line, the Macan Turbo is set to be the most powerful vehicle in the compact SUV segment. The 3.6-litre V6 biturbo engine, which is being used in a Porsche model for the very first time, achieves an unrivaled 400 bhp (294 kW) and catapults the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. With the Sport Chrono package fitted, it is even possible to achieve such a speed in 4.6 seconds. Although the top speed is 266 km/h, the Macan Turbo delivers NEDC* fuel consumption figures of between just 9.2 and 8.9 litres/100 km, which equates to a CO2 value of between 216 and 208 g/km.

For the first time in a new Porsche model range, all variants of the Macan feature the high- performance seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard. The advantages of this transmission design include excellent start-up performance, extremely fast gear changes without any interruption in tractive force, short reaction times, low fuel consumption and outstanding shift comfort.

The PDK’s intelligent management system allows it to adapt to the required driving profile. As in virtually all Porsche vehicles that feature the PDK, there are two shift gates: On the right, the required switching level is engaged via the typical Porsche gear selector, while the left-hand gate can be engaged manually, or with the standard shift paddles on the steering wheel.
Start/stop functionality and coasting for increased efficiency. 

Active all-wheel drive is part of the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system and comes as standard for all Macan models. Together with the other elements of the system – the electronically controlled, map-controlled multi-plate clutch, the Automatic Brake Differential (ABD) and Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) – the all-wheel drive looks after traction and safety.

The all-wheel drive system is one of the systems with the fastest response times on the market and its design underpins the sportscar characteristics of the Macan. The rear axle is always driven, the front axle receives its drive torque from the rear axle, and the torque is dependent on the locking ratio of the electronically controlled multi-plate clutch.

With the optional Sport Chrono package fitted, performance can be enhanced even further at the touch of a button. The package enables the chassis, engine and transmission to be tuned to an even sportier level, accompanied by a sound that is even more emotive.

The Sport Chrono package is characterised by the analogue and digital stopwatch on the dashboard, as well as the additional Sport Plus button in the centre console.

Another element of the package is the performance display on the optional Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, which provides information on the total driving time, distance travelled around the current lap or the time taken for each lap, for instance. 

“Sport Plus” offers an even sportier tuning of the engine features and chassis, and switches the gear shifting strategy to racetrack mode. The PDK is now configured for very short response times, optimum shift points and torque magnification during gear changes for maximum acceleration, ensuring the vehicle delivers an even sportier response. 

Also included as a component of the Sport Chrono package is Launch Control, which enables a level of acceleration similar to that required when moving off in a race. The time advantage gained in a standard sprint from zero to 100 km/h is 0.2 seconds for Macan S, Macan S Diesel and Macan Turbo models. “Launch Control” enables improved lap times and a better spread between comfort and sportiness when it comes to the vehicle handling to achieve a boost in driving pleasure.

The base price of the new Macan models starts from:-
Macan From RM 420,000*
Macan S From RM 560,000*
Macan S Diesel From RM 545,000*
Macan Turbo From RM 785,000*

* All Macan model is equipped with 4-year factory warranty and a 4-year complimentary service, parts and maintenance package. The price stated includes all applicable duties and excludes registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
