A British icon, Dinky Toys was the miniature-car division of Frank Hornby's Meccano empire. Introduced in 1934, the pre-World War II cars are now especially rare, due to most of them being made out of a dodgy zamac-zinc
We crunch the numbers
The Aston Martin Valkyrie and the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 attack the thorny problem of 'building the ultimate supercar' from completely opposite poles.Aston's Red Bull-soaked contender is as close to a road-going Formula 1 race car as
We drive the full-size pickup to find out

And no, it doesn’t actually fly
Well, hold on, it doesn't actually fly-it's just pretending to. This is the General Motors Firebird I concept from 1954-the first working gas turbine car in the US.Although it wasn't called the I when it was
The designer names eight things he hates about the car
Some things in life are universally accepted as the truth. Pineapple is an unacceptable pizza topping, for example. Christian Bale played the best on-screen Batman. The McLaren F1 is perfect. Of these things, there can be no argument.We don't
It’s also been allowed to keep using the copied parts...for now
One of the juicier sideshows of this year's truncated Formula 1 season has been the uproar over the Racing Point car, and whether or not the team copied last year's championship-winning Mercedes, and just painted it Barbie-pink.At
And it keeps its massive W12 engine
The Bentley Bentayga recently got prettier. Or less eye-gougingly gopping. Maybe you think it's still an absolute gargoyle, or perhaps it was, in your eyes, never anything less than gorgeous.What we can all agree on is that the Bentayga
Some are madder than the rest
In 1980, Lamborghini wasn't in a good way, in so far as it didn't really have any money. To show its support for the Raging Bull, Bertone brought this thing to that year's Turin Motor Show. Based on a
It’s a deeply satisfying car to drive
This is Ferrari's, um, compact GT, variously described by the company's marketing people as 'an F1 car in evening attire' and a 2020 reboot for that ineffably Italian idea of la dolce vita. Now, you might surmise that Ferrari has
To call it a supercar would be a stretch
So, 390,000 Australian dollars for a Ferrari 360 Modena seems ambitious, doesn't it? That's the equivalent of around P13.82 million.This is no normal 360, though. It's still powered by its classic 394hp 3.6-liter V8
Even by classic supercar standards, that's very high
Most '90s supercars are worth more now than they were when they were new. Substantially more, in some cases. But none has skyrocketed in value quite like the McLaren F1.Back in 1992, a brand-new McLaren F1 cost £540,000. According
Mini off-roading done right
We've been stuck at home for almost five months. Five months, people. Chances are, many of us have run out of hobbies to try out to keep ourselves busy over that period, too. If, however, you've yet to delve into
Now that’s one heck of a surprise
On screen, you may know him as the Aquaman or Khal Drogo from HBO's Game of Thrones, but behind the scenes, 41-year-old American actor Jason Momoa is actually just a typical (sort of) family guy and a loving husband.

Its appearance speaks for itself

It’s all about the details
Meet the hypercar that does things differently. It doesn't produce much downforce. It doesn't care about 0-60mph (0-97kph) times or top speeds. Power figures are the least impressive thing about the engine. It's not very big, and
