Spyker B6 Venator: The Dutch Supercar Brand Is Back

Not too long ago, the Dutch supercar brand Spyker had quite the rosy future.  The sports car arm of the company Spyker N.V. (née Swedish Automobile) got the Spyker C8 a featured role as Jet Li’s bad-guy-mobile in the 2007 Jet Li & Jason Statham flick, War.  They teamed with famed coachbuilder Zagato to design the breathtaking Spyker C12 Zagato.  Then, Swedish Automobile tried to save Saab from bankruptcy.  Let’s just...

VIDEO: Ferrari LaFerrari: So Nice, They Said It Twice…

It is the season of the hyper-car.  First, the McLaren P1 bows.  Then the Lamborghini Veneno.  Now, its Ferrari’s turn with the successor to the Enzo, the oddly named Ferrari LaFerrari.  (They really should have gone with Ferrari F70.)  Ferrari LaFerrari Top View The Enzo was a car with spectacular performance, so its successor needs to be even better.  The Ferrari LaFerrari is the “maximum expression” of all that is...

ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour: Speed on Any Terrain [Video]

ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour Coupe and Convertible Somewhere in Italy, someone with ItalDesign Giugiaro said: “You know what would be fun?  Let’s take a 5.2 liter V10 with 550 horse, mate it to a four-wheel-drive system and take the whole thing off-road.  Ooh, and let’s give it adjustable ride height, too.”  And, so the ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour was born. ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour Just unveiled at the 2013...

ManKind Grooming & Services: Haircut and a Beer in Fort Lauderdale

The other day, I looked in the mirror and found myself looking a bit more like a woodland critter than I would like.  So, it was time for a haircut.  One slight hiccup, I’m in Fort Lauderdale, some 1,200 hundred miles from my usual barber.  Upon suggestion from my brother-in-law Dan (who frequently morphs into a woodland creature himself) I visited ManKind on SE 2nd St in Fort Lauderdale. Founded by Lee Garipoli, ManKind has...

Bremont: The Quintessential British Watch Brand

Today, across the pond, Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee.  Sixty years ago, she took the throne of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  Over those sixty years, the UK has made some significant impacts on the world, Lotus, the Jaguar XK-E, the McLaren F1, the Rolling Stones, Top Gear, HP Sauce, and Fish & Chips (though I think that may be older than 60) to name a few.  So, in honor of...

SDW Hyperbar: Water Resistant to a Depth of 39,600 Feet

I like weird watches.  A watch that has some sort of extreme feature or function that sets it apart from the rest is fun.  But, in the ever proliferating interest manufacturers have in giving their timepieces unique complications, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find a watch that is truly one-of-a-kind.  Thankfully, a company in Zürich, Switzerland called Chronotime AG makes the SDW Hyperbar.     The Hyperbar...

Review of Revolucion Tequila Reposado

Revolucion Tequila Reposado I like tequila.  Good tequila.  I have for some time.  I’m not, however, a fan of the whole shots with lime and salt licking thing.  That’s one reason I like this tequila.  You don’t need to drink it in shot form with enough chasers to drown a horse.  Jose Cuervo, I’m looking in your direction. Revolucion Tequila is a relative newcomer to the world of premium tequilas.  Juan Carlos...

Richard Hammond Goes Ham-Wild in a Tank…How Do I Get His Job???

Richard Hammond of BBC’s Top Gear fame has crossed the pond.  And, if his new show on BBC America, Richard Hammond’s Crash Course, is any indication, he made the crossing on a USMC hovercraft. As if being the host on the world’s most popular car show and getting to drive the greatest cars in the world or drag race a Bugatti Veyron against a Euro Fighter Jet isn’t enough, he has to come to the US and play with...
