To celebrate its sixty years of selling cars in the USA, Ferrari is putting out a limited run of 10 Ferrari F60 America ($TBA) supercars. The F60 is basically an F12 with a ragtop. The similarities don't stop there as the F60 has the exact same performance numbers as the F12. Featuring a 6.3-liter V12, which pushes 730 horses, it will take you from 0-62 in just 3.1 seconds, with a top speed north of 200 mph. Now, you'' need to keep in mind, the soft top is only rated up to 80 mph, so if you're going triple digits you'll have to do it daredevil style with an open roof.
Mercedes is bringing the back the ultra luxury badge with the release of the 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 ($TBA) in April of 2015. The newest S600 is a whopping eight inches longer than its other class mates. This is especially noticeable in the rear with generous legroom and unparalleled comfort provided for passengers. The interior features hand-stitched Nappa leather throughout the interior. The power plant is a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine and the exterior will feature 20" wheels with your choice of 14 paint colors. Now if you can do without the extra 8 inch length you can get a well appointed S600 for about $40K less, and if you want the length, but with a little faster engine you can go with the 614 horsepower S65 AMG for about the same price.

Bang & Olufsen's Wireless Beolab 18 Speakers ($6590) are the company's latest update to their most successful loudspeaker, the BeoLab 8000. You can see that the Beolab 18 and 8000 share the same bones, but the 18's have clearly marked out their own identity with some notable features. This includes a front panel made from 21 wooden lamellas that come in black, white and solid oak. The speaker has two 4-inch midrange drivers mated with a 160 watt amplifier. These speakers support Olufsens new wireless platform, WiSA. WiSA is capable of streaming 5.2-5.8 GhZ with 24bit audio, up to 96KHz. Because these speakers utilize smaller 4" drivers you may want to pair them with the new BeoLab 19 ($3395).
