The Volvo Concept XC Coupe ($TBA) is the latest look at Volvo's future design direction.

Now their taking aim at the younger more active crowd as well. The new coupe concept features 21-inch wheels, and T-shaped daytime running lights.

The Reebok Insta Pump Fury silhouette is almost 20 years old and it still looks like it comes from the future. And to help celebrate its 20th anniversary End Clothing and Reebok have gotten together to create the End X Reebok Insta Pump Fury "Claret" ($185). The shoe features a colorway that represents a fine wine. The uppers are a deep burgundy and red with gold accents, the insoles represent cork to continue the play on wine, and the outersoles are a deep green inspired by the bottle. The Clarets will launch on March 14th.
Family homes do not have to be monstrous to be beautiful. The Fran Silvestre Arquitectos Balint House ($TBA) is a perfect example of this. Balint uses ellipticals to minimize the impact on the site. The home is located off of beautiful golf course near Valencia and it features a large main living area that includes a kitchen that overlooks a crescent shaped pool. Above that area is a large master bedroom suite with a roof terrace that overlooks the back of the home and two additional bedrooms. The home reminds me a futuristic spacecraft readying to take off at any moment.

Polaris Defence, an active division of Polaris Industries, is blessing front line troops once again with a brand new all-terrain vehicle. The Polaris Defense Turbo Diesel MRZR-D Military ATV ($NFS) is the latest vehicle in the MRZR line and is powered with a turbo diesel engine. This amazing beast of a machine is set to make its debut at the 2016 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa, Florida. Details on its specs aren't available but like other vehicles in the MRZR line up we can assume it will feature similar impressive armor, accessories and off-road mobility as other vehicles in the line. It also has the ability to be carried by a V22 Osprey helicopter. It’s not for sale though so you’ll just have to join up if you want to experience riding one.
