The MPT Group brought back the drag race that was once part of Singapore’s motor racing history. As Singapore is land scarce, the race is actually being held within a parking lot, and the drag strip is only 180 metres long. There are actually many other viable venue alternatives like the Changi Exhibition Centre, F1 Pit Centre, or even closing half a section of a long straight public road.
This is the final installment of Evolution features and we have saved the best for last. The Singapore motoring system does not allow for the preservation of old cars very well. This is one of those old cars that should be preserved because what you are looking at is Singapore’s last and only road registered Evo 6. There are certainly several look alike Evo 6s roaming the streets which have been converted from Evo 4s and Evo 5s., but none of them even come close to rivaling the aggression of this true and legitimate Evo 6 RS2.
Unlike typical Singaporean stereotypes, car gatherings are not unlawful gatherings or any intention to create public nuisances. These are usually excuses for nosy Singaporeans to call the Traffic Police and have those poor officers make a trip down to give the car enthusiast a heart attack. What most people fail to understand is car gatherings / meets are meant for people who share the same interest. It is a gathering that anybody with the same love regardless of age can walk up to one another and go “Hey there, I’m *Insert name*! Nice car!”. Sort of like how girls compliment each other for having a nice handbag (Chanel 2.55), guys compliment each other on their cars (Advan A050 in 255 profile).
A Lone 34 GTR decided to crash an Evo party!
Yep, I saw that happen yesterday right in front of me. That’s a good thing in creating a closer Evo community. What is even better about the gathering is that here in Singapore, Evolutions are generally stereotyped to be an “Ah beng” car. Ah beng is the local slang for the meaning “Gangster”. Yet most of the people seen yesterday were business class family men! We even had one Evo X have his kids in the car while he mingled with the rest of the people. How can any meet where families are welcomed be seen as a public nuisance?
Evos staring the lone godzilla down
Right after this pic was taken it began to rain. Unfortunately for me, my exams are right around the corner and I had to leave for home. Despite the downpour, the rest of the guys sportingly shifted to a second sheltered location for more pictures to be taken.

A short while back I came across the Stancenation feature of an awesome Bentley properly fitted and resprayed in Lamborghini Grey. Adding “Spray Evo to Lamborghini Grey” to my to do list seemed like the only way to react to something as amazing as this.
Tell me that isn't sex on wheels.
While budget does not allow me to do so at this point of time, the thought of how my Evo would look in Lamborghini grey has been haunting me ever since.
That's my car in case you did not know
Then this example of an Evo in Lambo grey showed up. While it may not be a 9, its still an amazing looking Evo.

Wei Jie is our Australian correspondent as he is currently studying in Perth. Being in Australia, he has the opportunity to shoot cars never before seen on Singapore’s roads or cars that are really rare. The locations to shoot are plentiful compared to Singapore where many spots are forbidden and security guards are more than happy to chase you away even if you’re not obstructing traffic.
This limited production model needs no introduction.
After 3 years of snapping mostly cars , Wei Jie is still constantly improving and learning from others, often reading car magazines and websites to get ideas and inspiration from renowned photographers. He has photos published in magazines and websites and currently working with 7Tune and TheRightWrong as a correspondent.

If you have read the teaser, you would understand why I deemed this the “Sun Evolution”. For the benefit of those who didn’t, I’ll explain it again and this time with pictures instead. Also, if you noticed the addition to the credits at the top, its explained further down the post.
This is our second night shoot for TheRightWrong crew. You might be wondering why the sudden change in concepts when most of our previous shoots were mostly in the day and in open spaces with sufficient lighting. Simply put, we chose the night shoot particularly for this car.
It's colour code is "Brighter then the sun PINK!"
With a colour code like that, we did not really need sufficient lighting when the car is it’s own light source.
I also chose these locations because I meant to emphasize how this car can brighten up a dull area…
such as Shenton Way...
and some of you might be sitting in your offices right now reading this feature to relieve your work blues. (Hope we helped!)
You must be wondering why would I use such a controversial name – Sun Evolution. After-all the famed Cyber Evo used to be sponsored by Sun Auto.
I am not in any way suggesting our next Evo feature is related or sponsored by Sun Auto. No doubt I am sure that car probably might have the power to go head to head with the Cyber Evo. What I am suggesting is this car’s unique colour. Its a colour that will probably get you the same amount of attention as driving the Cyber Evo down Orchard Road. You might guess it to be yellow or orange. Well, I’m sorry you got it wrong.
This car’s colour code is…. Brighter then the Sun Pink.
Here’s a little Sneak preview to brighten your Monday (Pun intended).
So I happened to bump into a friend a couple of days back and had our very talented photographer Neo with me. Couldn’t resist asking him to take a couple of quick shots of both our rides. This picture is supposed to represent the platform which the Evolution evolved from, from an Evo 6 to an Evo 9.
Then again, this Evo 6 looks a heck lot more evolved then my skinny little Evo 9. More pictures to come of this random snap soon!

To Jonathan, anyone can eventually learn how to take a sharp picture but a true photographer can shed an emotion and tell a story through his or her photos. With fellow crew member Neo and Randy F, learning the ropes was made easy joining therightwrong.net as a junior photographer.
One of the first few photoshoots Jonathan joined The Right Wrong Crew.
