The new Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Edition 1 looks fast and sporty but “modestly priced?”, not really. Actually it is, considering the heat this thing is packing: a turbocharged 360-horse 4-cylinder engine & full AMG treatments including a rear spoiler, graphite grey side stripes, matte black 19-inch wheels, & a black leather interior with red contrast stitching topped off by a pair of ARTICO/DINAMICA sport seats.
Not sure about yours, but our personal jet is just too damn slow. That’s why we’re stoked about the development of Saker’s military-inspired S-1 jet. Pushing max speeds of nearly Mach One, S-1 will get you there quicker. Designed for steep climbs and short runways, this luxury 2-seat aircraft will also get you in & out of tight spots, like your private island or secret mansion in the mountains with ease. via
With design cues taken from Italian race cars of the 1960s, the Portofino Chronograph’s 42mm case looks sporty yet classic. Nice move. And nice movement, as well. The self-winding mechanical movement is, of course, Swiss Made.
Nobody else wants you to go but you should. Forget about the “missing” journalists and mandatory curfews, North Korea is going to be great. The intrepid guides at Young Pioneer Tours will take you there and back with experienced western guides on all kinds of trips where they handle the details and you soak up the scenery in a place few dare to tread. Ever considered a North Korean fishing trip?
Is it a hammock or a bathtub? Well, it’s both, sort of. The Vessel is a unique take on the bathtub, it’s made of Carbon fiber & stands suspended by the walls, floating above the floor. Combining a hot bath with the chill vibe of a hammock seems like the ultimate recipe for relaxation. And it certainly looks inviting…
The 2014 Vanquish Volante is every bit the supercar as its hardtop twin brother: a 5.9-liter V12 engine with 565 horsepower, carbon-fiber body panels… But this one just happens to go topless. And who doesn’t like to see a top come off in the summer heat? Unfortunately, you won’t see it this summer. The Volanté goes on sale early next year.
What comes after 3 and before 5? That’s right, 4. BMW has just unveiled their new 4 Series coupe, successor to the much lauded 3 Series coupe. It will be available with three turbocharged engine options and 5 or 6 different trim & performance packages. In addition, it is wider, longer, and lower than the 3 Series coupe it will soon replace.
It may not look like a Jeep Cherokee but hey, change is good. Embrace it. This fall, the totally re-designed 2014 Cherokee will arrive at your local dealer in 4 trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Limited, & the top of the line, off-road ready Trailhawk (shown) with engine options ranging from the Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder up to a 3.2-liter V6.
With a nearly 1800 CC V-twin powerplant, this big metric cruiser is low, loud, and produces a ridiculous amount of torque. At the same time, it’s engineered for comfort on those long hauls. Maybe that’s why they call it the B.O.S.S. Actually, the acronym stands for Blacked Out Special Suzuki.
