We've all done it. We've all said to ourselves, "I'd love to buy a classic Mini and restore it." Now's your chance to do just that, while keeping with the times. Swindon Powertrain has launched its 'Classic Mini
We reckon even the superhero himself would want to drive it

Inspired by the carmaker’s five Dakar Rally victories
Since 2012, Mini has won the Dakar Rally a mightily impressive five times, with four of those victories coming in succession between 2012 and 2015. The latest was earlier this year, though, after the race moved from South America to the sands
*All six units allocated for our market have already been reserved

This looks like fun

Not all of them are found in expensive exotics
A starter button on the dashboard? Snore. Somehow, it's more interesting-more Italian-to locate it on the steering wheel. Audi does that in the R8 V10. Lots of Ferraris do the same. But the Alfa Romeo Giulia brings a slice
Lazy marketing? Not when they make sense
The Nissan Cube was, once upon a time, the best-selling car in Japan. This is why we love Japanese car culture at Top Gear-they tend not to buy boring cars.The second-gen Cube really ran with the boxier-than-
A pocket rocket on stilts

Imagine the power-to-weight ratio
