March 2015


Fasten your seatbelt and hold on tight for a wild ride as Speed goes full throttle in its first Car & Bike issue of 2015. Talk road trips and travels with TV host, triathlete, and professional traveler Drew Arellano on the cover. Meet Filipino automotive geniuses who are taking the country to the future of homegrown car technology. Look back to the design evolution of the Philippines’ king of the road, the jeepney. The Nissan NP300 Navara, Toyota Alphard and Prius C, Gogoro Smartscooter, and Mogobike lead the upcoming hot rides this March. As per usual, Speed has your regular dose of the latest gadgets and gear to bring while roaming the streets in your car or on your bike. Speed puts to the test the BAIC A523 Senova, Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle, Honda BeAT 110, Isuzu mu-X 4×2 LS-M, and Tata Vista Ignis. Whoever comes out on top or ends up eating dust, one thing is for sure: the hurly burly beasts of military trucks featured in this issue can take whatever challenge you throw at it. Join in some fuel-charged car talks with one of the Philippines’ leading car customizers Atoy Llave and die-cast car collector Andy Adan while guest columnist Kris Lim shares his Maranello-like driving experience with the Ferrari California Turbo. Let Speed make your road life bearable with the basic know-hows: changing a flat tire, keeping your AC cool, bringing the essential car tools, prolonging your tire’s tread life, and commuting like a pro. Under the hood of your car, the Internet of Things creeps silently and I.T. expert Val J. Gonzales tells you all about it.
