The Fonderie 47 Inversion Principle showing the side power reserve indicator

The Bible talks about beating swords into plowshares, but what about Kalashnikovs into timepieces? Swiss watchmaker Fonderie 47’s Inversion Principle has done just that with a luxury watch made in part from the steel of a deactivated AK-47 assault rifle and subtle design cues from the firearm. According to the company, part of the watch’s price goes toward helping to disarm and aid Africa.  Read More

If the Earthroamer XV-LTS and Mercedes Zetros don't quite reach the level of luxury-meets-off-road-fortitude you're looking for, may we suggest the Action Mobil Global XRS 7200. This large expedition vehicle combines six driven wheels of off-road fury with a luxuriously appointed living pod that has the look of a chic city apartment. It brings comfort and style to the farthest stretches of desert, highest reaches of mountains and deepest sections of jungle. And it costs several times the average stationary home.  Read More

The Jaguar's long fast roofline, running from the base of the windshield to the tail is on...

Jaguar’s F-type, successor to and loosely based off the iconic E-type, has rightfully been acknowledged as a brilliant new take on one of the industry's most famous rides. Following on from my time behind the wheel of a gorgeous 495 hp F-type V8S roadster a few months back, I recently had the opportunity to drive the less powerful (but equally gorgeous) 380 hp V6S Coupe version. So how did the car hold up to the V8S in terms of performance and value?  Read More

Living on the bottom of the ocean is not a new concept. It's a theme that has been visited in literature, cinema, games, and even a few hotels have capitalized by offering underwater rooms. However, US Submarine Structures is going one step further, offering the super rich a commercially-available underwater home with the luxuries of a 5-star hotel.  Read More

The DeepFLight Dragon eliminates the complex ballast and weight drop systems found in conv...

No one with red blood in their veins buys a sports car and hands the keys to a chauffeur, so one of the barriers to truly personal submarining has long been the need for a trained pilot, not to mention the massive logistics involved in transporting, garaging and launching the underwater craft ... until now. Pioneering underwater aviation company DeepFlight is set to show an entirely new type of personal submarine at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show next week, launching the personal submarine era with a submersible that's reportedly so easy to pilot that it's likely to create a new niche in the tourism and rental market.  Read More
