Bentley Centenary Specification to feature on all cars built in 2019

Bentley is celebrating its 100th birthday, outfitting models built between January 2019 and December 2019 with unique Centenary Specification elements. The company has come up with a new metallic gold colour, dubbed Centenary Gold, inspired by the "exquisite metalwork" found on classic models, including the 1919 EXP 2 and 1929 Birkin Blower. It will also reportedly shine and reflect light in a similar way to jewellery, for different look in different lighting conditions.

C8 Chevrolet Corvette spied, still looking very mid-engined

The next-generation 'C8' Chevrolet Corvette has been spied at the Nurburgring, wearing less camouflage to show off its new mid-engined shape. Up front, the headlights and ankle-breaking splitter share their basic DNA with those of the current Corvette ZR1, although the snub-nosed profile and air intakes on the rear flanks are dead giveaways as to where the engine is hiding.

Lexus UX launching without Apple CarPlay in Australia

In a move that may seem more than a little puzzling to buyers, Lexus plans to launch its all-new UX crossover later this year in Australia without Apple CarPlay. While the company says it will begin rolling out the technology some time in 2019, it should be noted each of the UX's competitors – namely the Audi Q2, BMW X1 and X2, and the Volvo XC40 – are available with CarPlay as standard kit across the range or, in the case of BMW, in the form of an optional wireless setup.
