Weekends are for having fun, right? A time when you can shed the shackles of your everyday grind and let your hair down, even for just a couple of days. A chance for you to unwind, relax, and recharge for the challenges that lie ahead. And what's a good way to achieve all those things? Going for a drive in your car, of course!

While some folks like their weekend jaunts to be a steady cruise at a manageable speed, there are some who prefer more of an adrenaline rush. There's less traffic on weekends, so why not push your car to its limits--while still respecting the road rules, of course. There's no autobahn-ing around these parts. If you have a few milllion pesos in change lying around, you could even buy a car for this exact purpose. A ride that's not roomy or practical enough to be used daily, but perfect for your weekend guilty pleasure. Something like the Peugeot RCZ.
