Probably the most recognizable New Balance shoe; the 576, is getting the English treatment. Inspired by the most popular varieties of tea at New Balance's Flimby factory, the New Balance 576 Made in England "Tea Pack" ($169) comes in three different colorways: English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Fresh Peppermint. Each of the shoes include a tongue label and matching lace lock highlighting the tea that inspired the shoe. Additional features include luxury nubuck and pigskin uppers, and extra laces included in a collectable tea bag. Check out the glamour shots after the break.(more…)
We did a write-up on the Lamborghini Veneno a little while ago and now after a lot of rumor they've released the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster ($4.5 MILLION). The roadster version has the same amazing engine and aggressive styling as the original just minus the roof. To refresh your memory the 6.5-liter V12 is the same engine found in the Aventador but it's tuned to 750 horses which will get you to 62 mph in under 2.9 seconds. The split time is a hair slower than the hardtop version, but I'm sure with no roof it'll seem like your going much faster. Check out additional pics after the break.(more…)

Google has just released its first in-housed designed laptop, the Google Chromebook Pixel ($1300+). The laptop has a Gorilla Glass 12.85-inch, 2,560x1,700-pixel touchscreen. This is a step up from Apples Retina display. The Pixel also comes with a 1.8GHz Intel i5 core processor. Additional features include 4GB of memory and 32GB SSD flash storage. If you're looking to use this laptop to run such apps as Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop look elsewhere. The Pixel is meant to be cloud based only, which may be a deal breaker.
W Motors started out in Beirut and in 2013 they moved the company headquarters to Dubai. The first supercar from the middle east company was the Lykan Hypersport. For their follow-up, they've created the W Motors Fenyr Supersport ($TBA). The Fenyr will only be built in lots of 25 units per year. This carbon fiber beauty combines some of the most advanced aerodynamics with some of the most beautiful aesthetics.The Fenyr is powered by a custom-made flat six, 4.0L Twin Turbo that's paired with a 7-speed double clutch gearbox. This setup delivers 900 horses and a massive 885 ft. Lbs of torque. Off the line, the Fenyr will reach 62 miles per hour in just 2. 7 seconds, topping off at a hair under 250 miles per hour.The improvements in performance are contributed to a body completely made out of carbon fiber and a lightweight tubular aluminum chassis.Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but the expectation is that it will be considerably less expensive than the $3.4 million price tag on its big brother.
The S House by Domenack Architects ($NFS) was created for a family in Lima, Peru and it exemplifies the highest standards in architectural design. The house features an open exterior and rooms enclosed by glass, while a floating room is wrapped in wood to provide incredible contrast. The exterior is wrapped in stone, but the whole thing gives you a sense of warmth and comfort.
