Ten Things We Learned This Week
Heavily-ordnanced Chryslers and MX-5 marriage proposals: it's another weird week in cars

A car complete with machine guns and missiles is up for sale
The Top Gear Technology Centre has brought many great innovations to the world of motoring, but even we are yet to attach machine guns and missiles to a car.
Happily, these guys have. This 1965 Chysler Imperial was the car in the 2011 film The Green Hornet, and features (deep breath) two hood-mounted Browning .30 cal machine guns (which when hooked up to a propane tank fire flames through the barrel to simulate gunfire), 12 Stinger missiles to the front and rear bumper, a flame-thrower mounted to the front grill, and beanbag launchers and shotgun barrels to the front.
We're not entirely sure the DVLA will approve. Still, if you fancy it the car is going up for auction next week at Massachusetts based RR Auctions.
