Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat fitted with antique horse buggy wheels

A 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has been fitted with frighteningly-narrow wheels from a horse buggy, courtesy of automotive YouTube channel WhistlinDiesel. While alignment and ride quality were not dramatically compromised, a lack of grip meant the burly muscle car struggled to convert its 527kW into forward propulsion.

The other iconic Australian cars that fetched big money at auction this weekend

While the huge amount of money paid for the ‘last’ locally-made Holden Commodore and a HSV GTSR W1 Maloo are still sinking in after yesterday’s auction, some other iconic Australian cars also fetched mega bucks. Bids for a HSV GTSR W1 sedan – in dark grey, number 9 of 300 built, and with just 149km on the odometer – reached $407,000 before the car was pushed away for negotiations to continue behind closed doors. It is unclear if this car was passed in or if the seller agreed to let it go.

HSV GTSR W1 Maloo sells for $1.05 million: new auction record for an Australian-made car

A new auction record has been set for an Australian-made road car after a Holden Special Vehicles GTSR W1 Maloo ute sold today for $1.05 million. Bidding for the supercharged V8 ute had already passed the $1 million mark a fortnight before the hammer fell in the Lloyds Auction this afternoon (30 January 2021), eclipsing the $1.03 million paid for a Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III in June 2018.

Gallery: 2021 Mini Hatch and Convertible facelift

Mini took the wraps off its updated Hatch and Convertible ranges this week, and though the brand is unlikely to admit it, the new model is intended to serve as a stop-gap between the current, seven-year-old model and the next generation Mini, which has reportedly been delayed to 2023 due to the impact of Brexit and COVID-19. Headlining the facelift's updates is a reworked exterior design, led by a new front fascia with a larger grille and new 'air curtain' vents.
