If you missed the RM Auction in March, you’re no doubt smarting from losing out on the limited edition 340 Mexico Berlineta from 1952. The car gods are smiling upon you though, because the miracle workers at GWA Tuning have rebuilt the classic from the ground up. Based on a 456 platform, the Ferrari 340 Competizone features a 470-horsepower 5.4-liter V12 and a six-speed manual transmission with upgraded aerodynamics, suspension and brakes as well as fresh aluminum bodywork and a modernized interior. To date they’ve only produced one model, but we’re sure a quick email from you might render another copy.
When you’ve got the nicest digs on the block you can’t bring property values down in the neighborhood with a dingy doghouse. Besides, it’s always been nothing but the best for Thor. A Luxury Dog Mansion($8,000), custom built to your exact specifications is just the token of affection he deserves. Made from top grade building materials with windows, decorative framing, brass hardware, wainscoting, crown moldings and other intricate architectural details, this luxury doghouse will pamper your pooch as much as your ego. You can even have it designed to match your home if you want. Nothing says luxury like a miniature version of your house sitting on your front lawn.
A Zen master like yourself rarely requires more stress relief than a romp in the sack. But on days that are particularly tense (you accidentally double-booked Minka and Gabrielle on the same night), you might want to have a few cans of Just Chill($22.00 12/pack) on hand. The fizzy beverage reduces stress and increases focus with all natural ingredients. The tropical drink has 7 essential vitamins and minerals along with Lemongrass, Siberian Ginseng, Ginkgo Bilboa, and L-Theanine that help you feel cool, calm and collected when the pressure is on. So throw back a few before you re-arrange your schedule, and remember, morning sex is tremendously underrated.
When jumping out of planes at 15,000 feet, diving off the coast of Antigua, and competing in the Alaskan Iditarod are all in a days work, you’ll need a camera that can keep up. The rugged Option WG-1 GPS Kit Digital Camera($247) can handle just about anything your bucket list can dish out. Shock proof (from a 5 foot drop), crush proof (withstands up to 100KG of force), waterproof (up to 33 feet), and cold proof (to 14F), this is the first point-and-shoot that might actually survive your lifestyle. Wish we could say the same about your love life.
As a seasoned tailgater you’ve always got a few tricks up your sleeve—the Instant Tailgate Den, the Tailgater iPod Dock, the Dish Network Tailgater, and now the Blacktop 360 Grill-Fryer ($225). The 452 square inches of cooking surface includes a deep fryer, infrared grill and griddle all in one. 24,000 BTUs ensure that you’ll have the heat necessary to cook up your meat any way you like it. The 37 pound masterpiece folds up easily and fits in a durable storage bag for quick clean up. It comes with a thermometer, insulated liquid catch bottle, three-position lid and a cutting board that attaches to the grill. The only thing missing is a short-order cook, but you’ve already got one on staff right?
