Published on 9 Jan 2014 | http://www.autobytel.com Volkswagen recently offered us the opportunity to test drive the world's most fuel efficient production vehicle, the 2014 XL1, after the LA Auto Show where we took the opportunity to have Volkswagen Technical Developer Christian Kolano to give us an in depth look at the limited production 283 MPG two seater from the future. The 2014 Volkswagen XL1 is powered by a turbo diesel two cylinder combined with an electric motor and a 7 speed dual clutch automatic mounted behind the passenger compartment. Much of the XL1's key to fuel efficiency lies in the sleek narrow body made from lightweight aerodynamic components like carbon fiber, aluminum and plastic. If the XL1 happens to sound like something you might be interested in, you will be hard pressed to hear that VW only plans on producing 250 examples priced at around $120,000 each; and will only be available in Europe.

Formed in 1954, the purview of the Film Censorship Board is to check and censor films to ensure that they meet the requirements of the Cinematograph Films Act 1952 before they are allowed to be screened in Malaysian cinemas. Currently housed under the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Board continues to perform its duty based on three guidelines; the Film Censorship Act 2002, The Censorship Guidelines and The Specific Guidelines Censorship are used as the yardstick to determine whether a film is fit to be seen by the general populace of Malaysia.
With Gareth Evans' "The Raid 2: Berandal" and Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" being the latest pictures to have been stamped with the seal of rejection from ever being shown in Malaysian cinemas, we look at 15 of the major movies out of the estimated 119 films that had been slammed by the ban hammer of the Board for the sake of protecting Malaysians from harmful content.
