Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat orders frozen until production catches up

Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat orders continue to smash initial sales expectations

The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is priced from US$65,290 while the two-door Dodge Challenger version starts at $61,090 plus on-roads. Neither car is what you would call a bargain, but with a mind-blowing 707hp and 650 pound-feet of torque in the old money (527kW and 880Nm) from a 6.2-litre supercharged V8, these tyre-frying twins have racked-up more than 9000 orders...

Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster review : Palm Springs, USA

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster has to be one of the most gorgeous drop tops in the world. It’s truly amazing that they’ve managed to shoehorn a 5.9-litre V12 into such a small car, there’s literally no room to spare under the bonnet. It’s pumps out 421 kilowatts and 620Nm to the rear wheels...

Porsche 911 Targa and BMW i8 review : Evolution meets revolution

The Porsche 911 is an icon, a supercar classic that has evolved over the decades while remaining true to its design heritage, and long been one of the best cars to drive.
