Ferrari’s 430 Scuderia goes into overdrive with Novitec Rosso’s Edizione 747; a supercharged 4.3L V8 pumps out 747 ponies (from 510 hp), hits 0-62 in 3.4s and tops out at 218 mph.

Endorsed by Lance Armstrong, the LS9.9IC Indoor Cycle may be purely stationary but features like a Kevlar drive belt, cantilevered brakes, and an air fit saddle make it almost road-ready.
Made by two car designers, Industrial North’s watches are engineer-friendly; laser cut faces reveal Fibonacci and Geodesic patterns, while cases are CNC machined and spark eroded.
Lexus’ long-awaited LFA supercar is now official: limited to 500 cars, it sports a 4.8 L V10 with 553 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque, 0-62 of 3.7s, 201.94 mph top speed and 65% CF body.
Mamiya’s DM22 is an entry level camera, though only affordable for professionals; it features a 22 MP 44x36mm sensor, Leaf Aptus II-5 back, 80mm f/2.8 lens, and ISO range of 25-400.
House phones are fading fast, but Bang & Olufsen’s BeoCom 5 scores style points while staying relevant; it’s a dual-landline cordless phone with VoIP, 2″ LCD and magnetic dock.
Canon’s 16.1MP EOS-1D Mark IV boasts 102,400 ISO, but its strong suit is fast action, low-light shots with 10fps burst, two Digic 4s, 45-pt AF, and 1080p recording (sweet video here).
In addition to his Project X watch, Daniel Craig may want a Scubacraft for his next Bond movie: it’s both a 50 mph speedboat and a submarine, able to dive up to 100 feet underwater.
Analog’s Glasgow Jacket looks urban, but it’ll serve you well on the slopes; it sports a 10,000mm waterproof poly twill shell, hand warmer pockets, MP3 sound port and adjustable hood.
AKA the Stealth for its matt black paint and carbon fiber bits, Lotus’ Exige Scura is limited to 35 cars; it uses the Exige Cup’s supercharged 257hp 1.8L engine, good for a 0-60 of 4.1s.
Worn by Daniel Craig (aka Mr. 007), Project X creates both one-of-a-kind and limited runs of Rolexes; choose from 18 models and 19 options including Craig’s blacked-out DLC case above.
Winston Classic Creation’s 12″ Space Adam mixes Flash Gordon with Planet of the Apes; the attention to detail here is bananas, with a detailed space suit and 20 points of articulation.

Linde Werdelin’s successful skeletonized Spidolite is back, this time in swank all-black titanium DLC and rose gold cases with sapphire crystal case-backs; both are limited to 88 watches.
Aerotype’s Hi-Tech Jacket is Hi-Priced too, but you’ll stay alive and wired: it sports MP3 and phone sleeve controls and can store surplus heat that’ll be emitted if you’re under an avalanche.
Ezio may be raking in the dough this Fall, but Altair will be scoring candy on Halloween: this Assassin’s Creed gear is pricey but realistic, including the ultra-sweet extension knife.
Preorder now: set in a stainless steel case, Nooka’s Zaz watch features a funky translucent see-thru face that matches the wearer’s skin tone; choose from leather or silver mesh straps.
Timberland’s Benton 3-in-1 jacket gets a Poplin refresh; it’s otherwise still a three-fer with a waterproof outer (1) and fleece inner (2), both of which can be worn separately or together (3).
