The new Ferrari 458 Speciale ($250,000) is more of everything you love. The Speciale has upped its game over the 458 Italia by taking the 4.5-liter V8 and increasing the horsepower from 562 to 597 horses. Although the torque has stayed the same the driving weight has dropped about 100 pounds to 2844 pounds. All this gives you an impressive 0-62 mph time of 3.0 seconds. Like I said more of everything you love. Check out more pics after the break.
We love small minimalist wallets. The ability to fit everything you need for a night out on the town in to a small package that fits comfortably in your front pocket can't be rated high enough. The Poquito Wood Wallet ($25) by Chris Haryono is a precision machined masterpiece that allows you to carry coins, cash or cards in a small convenient package. It's made from hand polished black walnut, white oak or black cherry (Stretch goal) and has a custom molded elastomer strap that holds everything in place. Check out Chris's kickstarter page to help make the Poquito Wood Wallet a reality. Additional pics after the break.(more…)
The Shaman All Terrain Vehicle ($200K) is a beast. This thing is just a little overkill for your daily commute. But if you have the cash, and like to go where most humans dare not tread then this is the vehicle for you and a bunch of your friends.It can hold up to 12 people and features 8x8 wheel drive, independent suspension on all wheels, a ground clearance of 17.7 inches, and a 24-foot turning radius. The engine comes with a 6-speed manual paired with a 2-speed 5-shaft gear box with locking differential and a power take-off shaft. All these goodies are capped off with a hydraulic winch to rescue those will less impressive rides.
We love Deus Ex Machina and the bikes they make. Their latest creation continues the legacy of one of the best motorcycle customizers in the world. The Heinrich Maneuvre By Deus Ex Machina ($CALL) started off as a BMW R nineT, one of the most customized bikes on the road. Deus took a common platform and made it all their own. The bike was stripped by Jeremy Tagand, who then prepped the front end for a monster tank. Motoretro then went to work fabricating the fuel tank and bodywork based on drawings. The custom frame is a combination of square and round tubing. To make the stance perfect foot-pegs and controls were slightly rear-set. One of the killer details is the hand crafted alloy and suede cafe racer inspired seat. If you want to know more about this bike or want one for your garage, check the Deus website at the link below.
