The European auto media has been holding its breath awaiting the first glimpse of Audi’s partnership with legendary Netherlands’ race car designer Joop Donkervoort. Now, after nearly three years of development, the Donkervoort D8 GTO just hit the web. It’s an open-wheel, open-roof slot car that packs Audi’s 2.5-liter R5 TFSI motor.

We’ll recommend this book in as few words as possible: Brain-injured outcast teen begins writing to jailed serial killers and develops trusting friendships, then the killers confess more crimes to him. Sounds good? NBC bought the script rights to this one. Happy Holidays.
Carved and sculpted entirely from pink Himalayan salt, this set of shot glasses with matching serving tray will add the perfect snap of saltiness to your favorite tequila.
Being an audiophile technically is a kind of perversion, so you creeps who know about McIntosh amps will be feeling warm and weird right now. The McIntosh mantle clock is a tribute to the design and styling of the brand’s classic stereo amps, using the same faceplates, meters, and trippy blue lights. Looks like it’s time to rock-and-roll.
Custom bike culture is big in Australia and Destino Custom Garage is one of the country’s best builders.
