Here are the six must-read, must-watch auto news stories and videos for Tuesday, February 23, 2016.

Less than a month from now, Lamborghini's president, Stephan Winkelmann, will end his decade-long tenure as the top man at the Audi-owned Italian supercar marker. Taking over will be Stefano Domenicali, the former top man at Ferrari's Formula 1 team. – CAR

Cadillac's president, meanwhile, remains at the helm, but Johan de Nysschen has unique plans for the brand's smaller outlets. Cadillac has far more dealers in the United States than its higher-volume luxury rivals, so de Nysschen wants the low-volume Cadillac dealers to forsake the idea of inventory. – Automotive News

Audi got a head start, branded its all-wheel-drive system from the get-go, and made it a central piece of the brand's image decades before consumers felt they needed all-wheel-drive. And now, via Quattro With Ultra Technology, Audi aims to move the game on once again. – Jalopnik

The Bentley brand's Mulsanne flagship was just facelifted to look strangely more like a Rolls-Royce.

Or not. – Telegraph

The tenth-generation Honda Civic is quickly becoming a car, and it'll continue to do so if a recall doesn't get in the way. But so far it's all been about the sedan. Now it's time for the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe.
