Dodge teases wilder 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat

Dodge has teased the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat, with a mean retro-inspired look up front. We don't know anything about the supercharged V8 lurking under the bonnet, but that bonnet itself (or hood, in American speak) has gained a dual-snorkel air intake. It's designed to bring to mind Mopar muscle from the mid-1960s and early-1970s, but Dodge also says it will ram even more air into the hungry Hemi V8 lurking within.

Mini Hatch: Through the generations

The updated 2018 Mini Hatch is nearly upon us, but how far has it come since the original reborn, 'new' Mini Cooper? Good question! To find out, let's have a look back in time to see how the German-owned British hatch has evolved after nearly two decades on sale. Launched towards the end of 2000 (2002 in Australia), the 'R50' Mini hatchback was the first model launched under the new Mini marque, after the original Mini was discontinued earlier that same year.
