If your Batmobile is an old Lincoln Futura with a body kit, you’re just another number. Those things are a dime a dozen. But a jet-turbine powered Batmobile? There’s only one in existence, so even at $620K, it’s a deal. Just be careful backing it into the Batcave.
No, not the new BMW. This racy little roadster is actually a portable grill from upstart German BBQ maker Brennwagen. With its high performance German engineering and stainless steel body, it looks ready for a few laps at the Nürburgring, but really, it’s built for blazing bratwurst.
The forthcoming Cadillac ELR is proof that sometimes concept cars actually make the cut. In ’09 it was an auto show sensation as the “Converj”: futuristic and full of potential. Now, as the ELR, this American-made extended-range hybrid is slated for production. But details from Caddy are still sketchy, “soon” is the closest they’ve come to announcing when it will actually be on the showroom floor.
You better hope this room is up to your girl’s standards because once your spaceship arrives at the Russian space hotel—opening in 2016—it’s a long trip back. And it could get a bit boring in this little pod, but remember, in the weightlessness of space, you can sleep vertically or horizontally. Surely you can think of some “experiments” to conduct up there.
If you want to roll around town in a Ferrari, you’re obviously not trying to keep a low profile. So why not go all in and get the drop-top? The new 458 Spider is low & compact but Ferrari engineers managed to wedge a fat V8 into this mid-engine coupe and still find the space to store the retractable convertible top. On sunny days, remember to bring that Ferrari ball-cap. Don’t wanna burn.

Cool fall nights are always right for a backyard fire. But in the morning when you notice your patio deck has a burn in it, you’ll wish you had one of these outdoor firepits from Ak47. With its smooth, architectural design, it fits with any décor and keeps your fire safely contained. When you’re done, just slide the metal cover over the top and forget about it.
If you can’t convince your little diva to venture out on a camping trip, the CristalBubble might help bring her around. It’s a portable self-contained living space that gives you 360-degree views. Show her the pictures of it decorated like a hotel room, just don’t mention that a bear could slash right through the wall like it was a trash bag.
The tit-for-tat battle between the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro is about to kick in to gear again. When the 2012 Camaro ZL1 hits the pavement early next year juiced up with it’s 550-horse, 6.2-liter, six-speed 8, those Mustang dudes with the new Boss 302 are gonna start sweating.
Japanese builders have long been the vanguard of high-style, underground bike design but now Taiwan-based design house Rough Crafts is making some noise. Their fully custom builds blend old school style and modern technology for bikes that look classic but won’t leave you stranded in a pool of oil.
