The LTA has modified the COE category such that cars with engine power output exceeding 97kW (130 brake horsepower) will be classified under Category B starting February 2014, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew announced. So now a Cat A 1.6-litre car can become a premium Cat B car?
Why stop there? In addition to the current Cat A to E, here are some suggested #NewCOEcategories!
Cat F: Cars above 97kw engine power and car stereo above 6000 W PMPO (FWAH!)
Cat G: Vehicles weighing above 2 tonnes (like Godzilla liddat).
Cat H: Cars that look like got Turbo but actually only got the sticker niah. (Haolianz lah!)
Cat I: Cars that have exhaust pipe bigger than their driver’s head. (Idiots.)
Cat J: Cars that think that everybody on the road should be able to enjoy their poor taste in music. (Jin dua siah leh!)
Cat K: Cars with number plates that use some really ugly fonts. And don't kern.
Cat L: Cars that have blue LED lighting everywhere, including the bottom. (via @longadin)
Cat M: Cars that look like Mini Cooper S but is really a Perodua Kancil.
Cat N: Cars that have window tinting darker than The Dark Knight. (Inside is always night one.)
Cat O: Cars with awful colours like Orleng and Puke Green.
Cat P: Cars that did very well at PSLE.
Cat Q: Cars that call themselves car but can actually seat eight people and take up 110% of the HDB parking lot.
Cat R: Cars that are for the Rich: Type-R. Wait, that means all cars in Singapore eventually.
Cat S: Cars that have spoilers so big, can fly on National Day.
Cat T: Cars that use number plates with typefaces that humans cannot read.
Cat U: Cars that U-turn anywhere they like.
Cat V: Cars that are Very What One, because they think that just because they are Sports Utility Vehicles, they can bully the more katek cars.
Cat W: Cars that can move on water, whenever it floods.
Cat X: Cars with blinding Xenon headlamps.
Cat Y: Cars that stop at rain shelters and wait there for the next 30 minutes. (Y U NO FIND A PROPER LOT TO PARK FIRST?)
Cat Z: Cars that think zebra crossings are only for zebras to cross.
