    obviously mr clarkson has not got the experience of being overtaken by a perodua driven by a macik on the NE highway....

    "In one article, he said its name was like a disease and suggested it was built in jungles by people who wear leaves for shoes."

    This guy obviously is full of prejudices......there are plenty of similar unimaginative cars designed by britisch carmakers in the past (mini for example, which likely served as a model)

    Typical.......

    If British made cars are really that good, why is it that many of their car companies have been bought over by foreigners?

    Quote"He is also known for destroying his most hated cars in various ways, including catapulting a Nissan Sunny using a trebuchet, dropping onto a caravan a Porsche 911 (after dropping a piano onto the bonnet and dousing it in hydrochloric acid, among other things) and shooting a Chevrolet Corvette with a Gatling gun attached to an airborne helicopter." Unquote

    Just a rude showy tactic of a creep with no understanding of empathy for the less well off who could not afford Rolls Royce or Bugatti. A Perodua is better than no car at all.
    For the masses, it is affordable private transport. What's wrong with that?

    The Germans wanted Volkswagen to be the People's car.

    Just typical small kid behaviour, and laughing all the way......what a waste! Pounds 4870 (or so)........so much for a wish to increase viewers.

    I concur with Ricohflex! There is a market for these little cars.......there are people who don't give a **** about design, as long as it drives.

    He has a valid point in the message ..... the car was designed by a corporation whose sole objective is to make MONEY from the car ..... this, i have high respect.
    Like him, I also think that ppl should be more passionate in the things they want to design/build for the masses ..... be more "green", better functional, better designs, etc.... As for the said car, it is just too boring ...IMO
    always the Light, .... always.

    ALL corporations SOLE prupose is to make profit!

    As for greener cars, I agree..........anyway, there is no need for having a car in Singapore, unless you are old or have kids.

    There are car corporations perhaps who want more than making money, but you can't survive that way.....not anymore with current people wages nowadays :-)

    imagine that one has to travel for more than two hours to reach a destination by public transport vs 30 mins in a car.

    Think it is worst than smoking cos you are wasting more time by traveling.

    There will not be a need for a car in Singapore if the transportation system is that efficient. that is spending less than an hour to get from one place to another.

    edit: oh yah.. MG rounds can cause explosion huh? and the 84RR round incinerated the car?
    reflects his shows.. full of crap.

    He can HIT a moving target with the 84RR!!!!! looks like SAF need to do something if a dickhead like him can shoot so well.

    I use the MRT from Sengkang to Dhoby Ghaut: 25 min, by car the same will be about 45-50 min.......

    You must see not only your own situation but for the country as a whole, how much fuel would have been saved, if there were more buses I agree it will be better. People are getting lazier once you have a car

    from jurong to changi, from yishun to tuas or from pasir ris to tuas? your pick?

    even though the transportation system is far better than many countries but........ having car is still more convenient for some. having to travel with three or more modes of transport per trip is no laughing matter especially when waiting time for a bus can be as much as twenty minutes.

    HAHAHHA - so much for OT! Sorry to TS.

    I think the video is blardy funny but Mr. Clarkson needs to know where the Perodua is coming from. In a country where most of the population suffers from a lower income and due to the weakness in ringgit, it has become very difficult for an average malaysian family to own a car.

    With the number of road accidents involving motorcycles, the perodua was the the means of providing more protection especially to families with children etc while allowing lower income earners to drive, since it is quite difficult to get around in Malaysia without a vehicle.
