Chrysler 300 SRT Core joins NSW Police fleet

The Chrylser 300 SRT Core has been announced as the newest member of the New South Wales Police Highway Patrol fleet, joining the BMW 530d. It's likely the V8-powered Chrysler 300 patrol vehicles will replace the outgoing V8 Holden Commodores, while the BMW serves the role previously occupied by six-cylinder Commodore police cars. Thanks to its 350kW/637Nm 6.4-litre Hemi V8, the Chrysler 300 SRT claims a 0-100km/h sprint time in "the mid-4.0 second range".

Honda S660 in Australia: 'We could totally sell it, if only...'

Honda Australia thinks it would have no issues selling the tiny, mid-engined S660 convertible. Too bad it can’t have it!
