Above is a teaser for the Aston Martin One-77: a car so amazing they had to spell out the first number. A carbon-fiber chassis and aluminum body hide a 7.0L V12 that goes 0-60 in 3.5s.
Carlo Mollino’s classic Cavour Writing Desk was designed in 1949, but its swank cantilevered design and sleek profile are timeless. The 1/2″ thick glass rests on a streamlined oak frame.
Paying homage to early Egyptian astronomers, Sheaffer’s Stars of Egypt features intricate engravings of Sirius and Orion. Choose from 18 karat solid gold or sterling silver.
While original Shelby Daytona Coupes are rare, Shelby is producing aluminum body replicas with an updated suspension system (the same used by the Superformance Coupe, above.)
Porsche Design’s race-inspired P6910 watch has been reworked with a rose gold and titanium case. Its coolest feature is a mechanical stopwatch which uses a three-disc system.
Can you say nerd bling? These periodic table rings not only sport the elemental info for silver, gold and platinum, but they’re made out of the actual metals they represent.
Anything that minimizes travel hassles is fine by us. Made with black pigskin, this lockable travel wallet by Smythson features gold-stamped pockets for your docs and an extra zipper pocket.
Millionaire jetsetters: Johnnie Walker’s Black Label F1 Night Race whisky will only be available at airport duty free shops, but get this: you’ll need to chase it, as it will change locations monthly.
Doubling as an artsy sphere when not in use, Michiel van der Kley’s Globus is actually a work station. Rolling on casters, one half is a leather lined seat, while the other has a pull-out tabletop.
Only five exist in the world, so we’re talking serious street cred with the Pagani Zonda Cinque. There’s no official top speed on this monster, but it sports a 7.3L V12 and 100ms paddle shifting.
Although only a concept, Franc Vila’s SuperLigero Skeleton Tourbillon looks downright dangerous. The watch is made with Lightnium, a highly rigid alloy of aluminum and lithium.
Best. Foosball. Ever. ELEVEN FORTY’s Opus Foosball table is the ultimate in bespoke party games: everything, from the type of wood to the microcast heads and bodies is custom-made.
The Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 is crafted from high-grade aluminum and wrapped in red and black leather on the sides. It includes bluetooth and GSM, and costs and arm and a leg.
There may be sportier motorcycle helmets, but we love the classical styling of these RossoFerrari helmets; Speed Racer, anyone? They feature a wraparound visor and shock absorbent padding.
We’ll never own Hysek’s Abyss Tourbillon. Only thirty will ever be made, and chances are it’d cost a kidney or two. Unabashedly modern, this watch’s exposed moment shows it has nothing to hide.
The aptly named Rare & Prestige Collection is to whisky connoisseurs what Bentley is to car collectors. In all, there are four aged scotches (1965-1977) scattered across the globe.
Porsche’s 2009 911 Targa receives a slight face lift and modest horsepower bumps over the outgoing model. Note: the “4” stands for all-wheel drive; the 4 gets a 3.6L while the 4S gets a 3.8L.
Linda Horn’s Teak Wood Chaise mixes the organic and artificial on two fronts: materials and form. Teak contrasts with aluminum while its curvy, ergonomic design sits on a stark, angular frame.
Recently rolled out in front of the world’s media, Virgin Galactic’s EVE is the mothership which will ferry SpaceShipTwo and astronaut-customers into sub-orbital space for $200k.
From status symbol to pariah, SUVs aren’t on many shopping lists lately. Bargain hunters, however, may find a deal with many used crossovers (Benz, BMW) dropping up to 30% in the last 6 months.
To be auctioned Aug. 1 for a cool $170k, this is the TIE Fighter that bumped off Darth Vader in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Cheaper: C3PO’s shoes, Cantina alien head and Imperial officer costume.
It’s got 700 hp, goes 0-60 in 4 seconds, and still has space for luggage. The best news? This British-made sports car (available in 2010) is all electric and goes 200 miles on a 10 minute charge.
The world’s first ground-up fuel cell vehicle, the FCX runs on hydrogen and emits only water. Good luck getting one: only 200 will be leased for the next three years, and only in Southern California.
