The D-Lux 5 is a peerless, high-powered digital point-and-shoot from Leica, makers of the world’s best cameras. Technically, this new Titanium model is the same as the black one, just sexier and a little bit lighter.
What the hell is this beauty? Well, the simple answer is that it’s a late-60s Ford Bronco. However, it’s been completely re-imagined by the Los Angeles-based custom craftsmen at ICON. Founder and front-man Jonathan Ward & his crew take old school donor SUVs like Jeep CJs and Toyota FJs and transform them into modern monsters, complete with serious power, performance, chassis, and body upgrades.
Ward offers us his own explanation of the ICON approach, “ICON, at our core, is all about revisiting vintage transportation in a modern context. We’re also part of a resurgence in American design and manufacturing, hell bent on reviving classic American craftsmanship and industrial design quality, in detail.” And when he says detail, he’s not kidding. The ICON Bronco boasts Ford’s new 5-liter Coyote Mustang motor and a whole raft of fully custom features from bumper-to-bumper.
The design for the ICON Bronco also included the input of a team of 10 designers from Nike who took their expertise in reviving classics into a whole new realm of collaborative creation. You want one, right? Okay then, just do it.
If not for the movie Back To The Future, the exotic, stainless steel DeLorean would have gone the way of the Edsel, the AMC Gremlin and the Ford Pinto – filed under goofy/extinct.

Nine months or so must have passed because the Kings of planned obsolescence, Canon Camera, are releasing another new flagship model.

From the outside this futuristic camper looks like something shat out by an Imperial Walker, but on the inside it’s like a luxury yacht. Designed and built in Austria, this ultra-deluxe 30-foot camper offers all the comforts of a presidential suite without the stigma of a corporate jet.
How do these “floating” lamps work? The answer is electromagnets. Incidentally, this is also the answer to how most of Criss Angel’s illusions work.
There’s a whole boatload of product out there with Steve McQueen’s name stamped on it. The latest is a new collection of Tag Heuer watches inspired by the late actor/motorsports enthusiast. The Monaco Collection features several watches in special colorways, trims, and designs reflective of McQueen’s love of high-performance racing.
You know a bike design is solid when it lasts for 40 years. 2012 marks the 40th and final year of production for the iconic Moto Guzzi California. This commemorative 1100-cc model features OG California orange & Diamante white paint and a logo using one of Guzzi’s 1930’s fonts. Collectible? Yes.
Even though they look great, in the past, drop-tops were always the slower, less aggressive variant. Not the case with this 2013 ZL1 Convertible. Chevy built in tranny reinforcements and added tunnel and tower braces to stiffen up the chassis, giving more of those 580 horses to the back wheels. Tell her you’re buying it for her.
They had the Cold War, we have the cold drinks. This martini table is made from a real, MK-76 bomb. Yes, disarmed. Bombs and Russian vodka don’t normally go together but in this case they’re a great pair. What better way to celebrate freedom than raising a toast over unused artillery?
