Classic cars to tackle dementia on Father's Day

A fleet of classic cars will descend upon an aged care centre in Bankstown, New South Wales, this Father's Day, in an attempt to take residents for a trip down motoring memory lane. Among the cars on show is a 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air, along with a vintage Ford Falcon that previously belonged to one of the centre's residents. Both are being brought along by friends, as a way to connect with elderly enthusiasts who otherwise mightn't have been able to enjoy them.

2019 AMG GT R Roadster spied

A drop-top take on the hottest Mercedes-AMG, the GT R, has been spied during development testing. The AMG GT R Roadster will sit alongside its Nurburgring-conquering coupe sibling, with power from a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 making 430kW and 700Nm, sent exclusively to the rear wheels. That should be good for a 100km/h sprint time of around 3.6 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 300km/h. In other words, fast enough to make your hair stand on end.

Alfa Romeo Mito production ending in early 2019 - report

The long-serving (should that be suffering?) Alfa Romeo Mito will be out of production early in 2019, according to reports from Europe. There was no mention of the two-door hatch in Fiat Chrysler's five-year plan earlier this year, but Autocar has now confirmed its downfall. It'll be replaced by a compact SUV, shock horror, because the body style is more in keeping with buyer tastes around the world.

Subaru Ascent: US recall sees nine owners get brand-new cars

Subaru of America has issued a recall for the seven-seat Ascent SUVless than a year after releasing it into the wild, and some affected owners will be getting a completely new car. According to reports out of the US, a manufacturing fault has caused welding robots to miss "some of the spot welds around the B-pillar", meaning the vehicle's body strength could be compromised, increasing the risk of injury in a collision.
