Bentley offers biometric lockbox in Bentayga

Most cars have a lockable glovebox, and maybe some kind of security in the centre console. For most owners, that isn't a problem. As you've probably gathered by now, the Bentley Bentayga isn't most cars, and the brand's average buyers aren't most owners.  That's why there's a new biometric lockbox for the centre armrest, designed to "stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services"...

2018 Bentley Bentayga V8 review

A prototype believed to be the Audi SQ8 has been spied on snowy European roads this week, previewing the German marque's upcoming flagship SUV coupe. Distinguishing this heavily-camouflaged vehicle to other Q8s we've seen are more aggressive bumper treatments and quad-exhaust outlets – a signature design cue of the Audi Sport 'S' models...

Aqua is back, baby!

You guys, have you noticed? Aqua is back. No, I’m not talking about the shit band from the 2000s that had the hit about Barbie. I’m talking about the colour. On cars, specifically.
