Speedhunting in Miri
The cars driven in Miri, Sarawak is rather interesting when a number of hidden petrolheads and Brunei-ans drive on the streets. Starting of with this Megane RS by Renault, it's a track-ready car ready to be unleashed. However, there's no race-track around except for the popular Lutong drag strip. So I guess the owner could have his/her track feel by doing it on the streets (always practise safe but 'professional' driving on the public roads)
Then came this widened and clean Toyota MR2 with...
... a different feel on the rear of the car.
I guess this MR pocket rocket has the potential to be a grippy Japanese Ferrari.
Next on, I found this rather interesting Satria Neo. It's a standard CamPro powered Neo but the it's what the visuals that attracted me. With the flared arch, black hood, black roof, CPS Spoiler and a splitter, this looks like a track modded Neo. I don't have any official info about this car being a track modded but this certainly looks good and appealing.
Do you like the Toyota Starlet and Initial D?
If you do, then this is a combination of both. A Toyota Starlet with the visual essence of Bunta/Takumi's AE86. With the fog lamps,...
...the Tofu shop decal and...
The Panda paint scheme, this is no brainer that this looks like the Trueno.
Fancy for something even rare?
I've never seen a genuine Mark II Supra until now.
Still not convinced? Check out this OEM steering wheel.
It's nice to see this Japanese classic even though it looks similar to a Pantera Detomaso and Lamborghini Espada.
And of course the retro rear
Also a classic but not too retro, it's the Civic Del Sol.
With a nice shade of blue and GT Wing, it looks refreshing to most civics out there.
Moving on to the Neos, this is the first 2013 Satria Neo R3 spotted in 'Tranquility Black'. It looks good but I still have my taste on...
my own Silver GTi Neo R3.
But then let's take a look on another Neo I spotted which was the modded Neo with Lotus Racing Bodykit on.
Featuring a set of TE37!!!
So in overall.... it looks SEXY!
But since the Neo was developed by Lotus, I managed to spotted the real developer's car.
For the first time in my life, I spotted an Exige.
With the interior that I could drool on even with my monitor right in front of me.
And it's SEXY BACK! This is the origin of the Satria Neo CPS/R3 (well, 1/4 of it's DNA).
Back to the classics and to the last but not least vehicle spotted, it's a car in the OCCC or Oil town Classic Car Club.
To end this petrolicious post, I feature the best, the aggressive 70's JDM style Celica ST in aggressive black! This is one car that I would want as a retro classic.
For another couple more years to spend in Miri, I'd definitely be looking forward to spot a lot more cars lurking around the streets of Miri.
