Ten things we learned this week
Tiny paper F1 cars, and Top Gear in North Korea: it’s another weird week in the world of cars

There are still many good things left to be found in barns
Sometimes Top Gear worries there will no more barn finds: that all the glorious, old, rusted cars squirrelled away in sheds and forgotten have since been... refound.
And then something like this gorgeous 1954 Jaguar XK 120 coupe turns up in a barn in Georgia, USA, and totally restores our faith in humanity's ability to buy beautiful cars... and then totally forget about them.
This 120SE Drop Head has covered 60,000 miles, wears factory correct ‘Jaguar Red' paint (along with quite a lot of cow dung) and is expected to fetch around $80,000 when it goes under the hammer in May. Jetwash not included.
