With the exception perhaps of the naming of their watch models, Swiss timekeepers Tsovet are making everything about their new timepieces unforgettable. The SVT-AT76 features a handsome matte PVD gunmetal case, precision Swiss movement and a handcrafted Italian calf leather strap. This small batch model will be hand-numbered 1-25 for those who prefer ultra-limited editions.
Hey … your mouth is open. It’s okay. You’ve never seen a 1949 Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta. Few people have. This gem, however, is about to go up for auction. Being one of the rarest & finest examples of early Ferrari, this model is number 10 of only 25 “Barchetta” coachworks designs from 1940s Milan. It was originally built for the Paris Motor Show, but went on to be an international racer. It has since had a complete nut & bolt restoration, so starting bids will be six digits for sure.
Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 classic film The Godfather is an American epic. But do you think you could really get a good night’s sleep in the bedroom where the severed horse head scene was filmed? Admittedly, it’s an odd question. But, considering the mansion from the movie is now for sale, someone’s gonna end up pondering this question. The eight-bedroom, five-bath Staten Island estate sits on 4 acres (enough room for a horse of your own) and is priced at $2.9 million.
People will love this amplifier for the way it looks – but, what makes it unique is the way it sounds. The French audiophiles at Devialet have created truly innovative technology. Through advanced design, they’ve made a hybrid of digital & analog sound transmission creating a breakthrough in stereo sound amplification. It’s really way too complicated to explain, but you’ll hear music the way it was meant to be heard.
It’s a huge claim, but nonetheless, they’re making it. The Confederate C3 X132 Hellcat is touted as the toughest motorcycle ever made and guess what? It’s American. These handmade, custom bikes are not the by-product of crafty welding & a crate motor. The technology in the Hellcat is a revolution in power-train design. They are only making 150 of these monsters, so get in line.
This is not the Space Shuttle you partied in for 30-hours straight at Burning Man a few years back. This is an actual NASA-issued, full-size Space Shuttle Orbiter. For 2.2 million you can buy one. But heads up, it won’t fly. And that’s actually a good thing, because when you re-entered the atmosphere at Burning Man, you said you were never going to outer space again. You swore.
For Swiss watchmakers, JeanRichard, tradition goes back 250 years. Inside every JR watchcase is an advanced, self-winding proprietary mechanical movement. Unlike many brands, JR does not just build watches around re-packaged Japanese quartz systems. When you’re shopping for a watch of this caliber, this stuff counts. The clean lines & sandblasted Titanium case of the Diverscope highlight JeanRichard’s dedication to quality and your sense of good taste.
What has zero emissions and goes 60 miles-an-hour? The Enertia Plus electric motorcycle. See … you had no idea. Powered by a lithium-ion battery delivering an 80-mile range between charges, this bike is a glimpse into the future of the species. It’s silent, clean, reliable and topped-off with Italian styling. Pretty hard to hate on that.
Most likely you’re too young to know what the hell a 392 Hemi V-8 is. That’s okay, because Dodge has just released a new Challenger paying homage to their own 70s muscle car pedigree. The SRT stands for “street racing technology” and that’s basically what this monster variant is for. With stock 20-inch wheels & 470 horsepower, you’ll have a hard time not getting pulled over. The racing stripes aren’t gonna help, either.
England’s legendary manufacturer, Triumph, has a knack for making bikes that become classics. The Thunderbird Storm could be the next one. The massive 1700cc parallel twin pumps out serious power & torque and the styling is mean. Wheels and trim are de-chromed, it sits low and only comes in two colors. Black and black.
