Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the exclusive distributor for Ford in Malaysia, has introduced two new Ford models, one of which is the Special Edition Ford Everest WildTrak. This rugged SUV is designed for adventurous individuals seeking a capable 7-seater SUV with a balance of comfort and convenience.

The Special Edition Ford Everest WildTrak combines exceptional performance with comfort, advanced capabilities, and cutting-edge technologies in a rugged and fun-to-drive SUV. It features a new Luxe Yellow exterior color with Boulder Grey accents.

Under the hood, it is powered by a 2.0L Bi-Turbo engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD capabilities. It offers six selectable drive modes for optimal performance on different surfaces, including Normal, Eco, Tow/Haul, Slippery, Mud/Ruts, and Sand. The vehicle also comes with advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), including fully automated parking assist, thanks to the short-throw e-Shifter and electric parking brake.

Inside, the cabin features black synthetic-leather seats with orange stitching and the ‘WildTrak’ logo on the front seats. The dashboard features ambient lighting to enhance the cabin’s atmosphere. The SUV is equipped with a bold grille with ‘WILDTRAK’ letters on the hood, adding to its rugged appearance.

The Special Edition Everest WildTrak is packed with a full suite of driver-assist technologies, including the fully automated Active Park Assist 2.0, which makes parking in tight spaces a breeze. The vehicle also offers a 12-inch multi-touch screen multi-function display and a 12.4-inch color information display on the cluster for connectivity and convenience. The raised roof rails and panoramic moonroof enhance cargo space and offer a view of the sky and scenery.

The Special Edition Everest WildTrak is priced from RM338,888 (on-the-road without insurance) in Peninsular Malaysia, with variations for other regions. It is available in three exterior colours: Luxe Yellow, Meteor Grey, and Absolute Black.

Automatic transmissions and electric vehicles are dominating now but Aston Martin has stood firm in upholding the art of the manual gearbox. Marking their 110th anniversary in a remarkable fashion, the esteemed automaker introduced the Valour—a limited-edition, V12-powered supercar that pays homage to its rich heritage while embracing the manual transmission.

The Valour is more than a farewell to the manual gearbox; it’s a resounding affirmation of Aston Martin’s commitment to preserving a distinctive driving experience. Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s creative genius, revealed that the Valour drew inspiration from the extraordinary success of the one-off Victor. Originally designed for a single customer, the Victor impressed audiences at Hampton Court and secured the esteemed Future Classic award. The Victor’s triumph sparked public interest, prompting numerous inquiries and inspiring Aston Martin to contemplate crafting more vehicles in the spirit of the manual transmission.


McLaren Special Operations, the personalisation division of McLaren Automotive, has crafted four exclusive special-edition models of the McLaren GT, tailored specifically for the UK market. What sets these models apart are not only their limited production but also the distinct exterior colours and interior materials chosen for each.

In a nod to McLaren’s illustrious past, the chosen exterior colours for these special GT models have a rich heritage. Cerulean Blue, originally associated with the hypercar P1, harkens back to one of McLaren’s most iconic and groundbreaking models. XP Green, a colour linked to a prototype F1 road car, pays homage to the legendary McLaren F1. Sarigan Quartz, inspired by the Speedtail XP2, connects to McLaren’s cutting-edge technology and futuristic design.

Lastly, Cyber Yellow, a new shade created with inspiration from the existing Volcano Yellow, showcases McLaren’s innovative approach by infusing a silver-and-white sparkle effect into the pearlescent coat.


In 2022, the Peugeot 2008 made its debut in the Malaysian market with refreshed looks and updated features. This second-generation crossover SUV is currently priced at RM133,388.

To take it all up a notch now, Bermaz Auto has introduced a Special Edition 2008.


With production of the MINI Clubman likely to be in its final year, the company appears to have decided to commemorate its impending retirement with a Final Edition that will be offered worldwide, but only in a limited number of 1,969 units.

Why such an odd number, you may wonder? The answer is simple – 1969 was the year the original Mini Clubman was introduced and it would be in production for 12 years.


Unless you work with Audi – and with the R&D department – you would not be able to drive those camouflaged prototypes that are seen in spy photos or even officially shown by the carmaker. They are usually super secret vehicles and only driven outside the factory premises when necessary for real-world testing.

Now Audi of America offers 75 customers a chance to feel like they are driving one of those prototypes with the RS e-tron GT ‘project_513/2’. This is a limited run model which closely resembles the prototype car. It has the original design used for global prototype testing with “e-tron” camouflage script on both the exterior and interior.


A 70-year old Bentley with the registration JAS 949 has been a special car among Bentley models. It was one of only 208 units of the R Type Continental ever built – but the car had a greater impact than the limited numbers suggest. Quoted as ‘a modern magic carpet which annihilates great distances’, the R-Type Continental was the fastest 4-seat luxury sedan in the world when it debuted in 1952.

The first owner of JAS 949 was a Dr. Rowland Guenin in Switzerland, who received his car in December 1953. It was ordered in Ivory with a Red interior and a manual gearbox, a specification it retains today along with the original 4.6-litre engine.

In 2001, Bentley acquired JAS 949 and made it one of the models in the company’s 43-car Heritage Collection kept at the Heritage Garage in Crewe, where Bentley has its factory. It has been well maintained with the patina preserved and the car is driven on the road on a regular basis.


Since the first Bathurst 12-Hour race in 1991, the overall winning cars have been from many different brands and among them, in the 2020 event, was the Continental GT3. That year, with Bentley’s biggest ever motorsport programme, the Continental GT demonstrated its breadth of ability on the road and on the track.

That memorable victory inspired Mulliner and Bentley Sydney to create a special edition in conjunction with the recent launch in Australia of the new Continental GT S. Focused on driving performance and visual presence, the Continental GT S shares a number of characteristics with its track-based counterpart, thereby providing the perfect foundation for the pair of specially-commissioned road cars.


With the Kia Stinger model line coming to an end – after just 5 years – the Korean carmaker has prepared a special edition as a farewell. Known as the Stinger Tribute Edition, only 1,000 units will be available for sale worldwide.

While declining sales have been the main reason for its short life in the market, Kia recognises that the sporty sedan made ‘a significant contribution to the brand’, and denotes an important chapter in the story of Kia’s high-performance ethos.


Jaguar has had a long history of making sportscars – many of which have been famous. And where the F-TYPE is concerned, it has a rich bloodline spanning 75 years that includes some of the most iconic models ever built.

To mark its final model year and also 75 years of Jaguar sportscars, the carmaker is offering special editions in the form of the F-TYPE 75 and F-TYPE R 75. These will be distinguished by unique interior and exterior design elements, carefully curated specifications, and, of course, the supercharged 5-litre Jaguar V8 engine that is synonymous with F-TYPE.

These exclusive models will be a fitting celebration of internal combustion engine performance before Jaguar becomes a pure electric modern luxury brand from 2025.
