Lexus Australia confirms CarPlay/Android Auto rollout

Lexus has rolled out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across its line-up, but existing owners haven't been left in the cold. The ES mid-sized sedan and RX SUV were the first two models to get the technology in October, while the mid-sized NX SUV, range-topping LS sedan, and the RC and LC coupe line-ups have been outfitted with the system since November 1. Finally, all UX SUVs sold from December 1 onwards will have the technology. The BMW 3 Series-rivalling IS sedan misses out though, for now.

Tesla pickup reveal set for November 21

Tesla will reveal its electric ute on November 21, as it prepares to take on the Rivian R1T and upcoming pure-electric Ford F-150. Elon Musk used Twitter to reveal the "Cybertruck" will be unwrapped in Los Angeles, near the SpaceX rocket factory. If that date sounds familiar, it's because Blade Runner references it – and it's smack-bang in the middle of the Los Angeles motor show's media days.

Audi R8 V10 RWD: Mid-engined supercar here in mid-2020

Audi has taken its limited-edition R8 RWS and turned it into a series production model, bringing rear-wheel drive action to (more of) the people. The new R8 V10 RWD is powered by the same 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine as the all-wheel drive coupe, outputting 397kW at 6500rpm and 540Nm. That's 59kW and 40Nm down on the range-topping R8 V10 Performance.
