The Monochromatic Package is't just for the Lincoln Navigator anymore. It will be come an option on the 2021 Lincoln Corsair, Nautilus, and Aviator. Those four vehicles make up the entirety of the Lincoln SUV lineup.

The news comes on the heels of confirmation from the company that it's ending the run of the Continental and MKZ, leaving Lincoln as an SUV-only brand. The MKT was killed off after the 2019 model year. Lincoln also recently severed its relationship with Rivian as part of a larger cost-cutting move.

The Monochromatic Package is available in combination with four paint jobs: Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl, Infinite Black, and Asher Gray. Not every paint color is available on every model. Here's the breakdown:

  • 2021 Lincoln Corsair: Pristine White, Infinite Black, and Asher Gray
  • 2020 Lincoln Nautilus: Infinite Black
  • 2021 Lincoln Aviator: Pristine White, Infinite Black, and Asher Gray
  • 2020 Lincoln Navigator: Pristine White, Ceramic Pearl, and Infinite Black

Up front, each model gets the signature Lincoln grille and name badge in a monochromatic hue. Depending on the model, it rolls on either 20- or 22-inch black wheels. Also variable by model are the offerings of additional package elements including body-colored side mirrors, lower cladding, and wheel lip moldings.

"The monochromatic palette is clean, uncluttered and emphasizes the beautiful lines of our Lincoln SUVs," says Earl Lucas, Lincoln chief exterior designer. "From the Corsair, Nautilus, Aviator to Navigator, this option not only enables us to keep our lineup fresh, but also gives our clients a unique option to personalize their Lincoln SUV."

Pricing for the package is expected to be announced at a later date.

This 1963 Aston Martin DB4 Series 5 is one of one.

Three vintage Aston Martins will be part of the first Silverstone Auctions sale of the year on March 5-6, 2021. The three models represent some of the rarest Astons in the world. Let's take a closer look.

1963 Aston Martin DB4 Series 5

This car (seen above at the top of the page) is one of just 50 Series 5 DB4 saloons built prior to the arrival of the DB5, and it was one of the last ones off the line. The left-hand drive car retains its original engine and gearbox, and is finished in its original specification of Aegean Blue over White Gold.

The car is well-traveled. It was originally delivered new to California and comes to its new owner with an Aston Martin Assured Provenance document.

If it looks familiar, Bond fans, that's because it was a DB4 Series 5 Vantage that was used in filming "Goldfinger".

This is one of only 71 DB6 Mk2s that was equipped with the Vantage engine straight from the factory when new. Making it more rare is the fact that it is a right-hand drive saloon with a factory fitted manual gearbox. Those factors make it a one of one.

This chassis has been presented in multiple concours, had several successes with the Aston Martin Owners Club, and has undergone a significant engine overhaul by Aston Martin Works. It's finished in British Racing Green.

Lots of special attention courtesy of Aston Martin Works has made this 1969 DB6 a model worth taking a second look at for enthusiasts looking to invest. A history file of the car detailing all the work done includes notes regarding a full interior retrim, which was conducted at the same factory where the car was originally built.

The model was originally delivered new to Halesowen in October 1969. The car's original Celeste Blue metallic paint job was accompanied by a dark blue Connolly hide interior (bodywork is now finished in dark blue). It was supplied with the optional two front seat belts when new.
