From the same guys that brought you the Ariel Atom comes the Ariel Ace ($34,000) a motorcycle based a collaboration between Ariel and Honda. The Aces features a Honda 1237cc V4 engine. Each motorcycle is built specifically to each customers requirements. You can get a low riding cruiser, or a cafe racer stripped down street machine. Some of the customizations include adjustable footrests, brake and gear levers, seat heights, and handlebar configurations. Ariel's low volume manufacturing philosophy is perfect for those riders looking for a bespoke machine that gives them a bike fitted to their size and ideal riding position.
The word I would use to describe the Jaguar F-Type R ($100,000) is smooth. Its lines evoke effortless aggression. You can almost hear it laughing at the idea that any wind could slow it down. This beautifully styled ride is powered by a 5.0 liter 550 horsepower supercharged V8 that delivers 502 lb-ft from just 3,500 rpm. For your money you'll get a car that can accelerate form 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. Not too shabby. Additional features include a 186 mph top speed, 20 inch Gyrodyne silver alloy wheels, super performance braking with red calipers, sport suspension, and switchable exhaust.

Being from the suburbs of Detroit, I love hearing stories of daylight for that city. The Falcon F7 ($195K) a Detroit made supercar is one of those stories. The Falcon hails the next generation of muscle cars from Detroit and it has plenty of it. It features a Lingenfelter built twin turbo inter-cooled V8 that pushes 1100 horses. The engine is paired with a high performance 6 speed tranny with a dual disc clutch system. The body panels are completely made from lightweight carbon fiber and kevlar. This not only includes the outer skin, but the interior structural panels as well. All of this contributes to an overall weight of just 2850 lbs. Giving it an amazing power to weight ratio.
The CRKT Extrik-8-R Rescue Tool ($13) was made for emergency professionals, but it could also make a great go-to emergency tool for the rest of us.

Overall size is 4.17 inches.
