If you’re going to drive something as conspicuous as a Bentley, you may as well just go the whole monty and be as conspicuous as possible, i.e. drop the top and don’t look back. The Mansory Bentley Continental GT is as gorgeous as it is attention-getting as it is a beast under the hood, packing a 6.0 liter W12 motor with a newly optimized engine management system, a sport intake system, and a full exhaust system that combine to deliver 672 hp at 6,000 rpms, or 0 to 62 in 4.5 seconds. On the inside, expect full butter leather upholstery, a new sport steering wheel, aluminum pedals and footrests, custom embroidered floor mats and luxurious entry sills. As long as you’re the center of attention, you may as well be comfortable.
Elements Out, Stuff In
Though you find nothing more satisfying than standing in an open field during a good hail storm and taking chunks of hail to your bare chest like a man, it’s no fun when your stuff gets soggy. Keep the earth and rain out and your stuff in tip top shape with a WM. J. Mills & Co. Classic Duck Duffel ($120+). Its water-resistant #8 cotton duck canvas has lock-stitched seams for strength and durability, while its marine-grade zipper, solid shoulder strap and full, wrap-around carrying handles mean it can take a licking and keep on ticking. Come rain, shine, snow or hail.
When the world of nonstop business dinners, endless emails and constant party invitations (Diddy will simply NOT take no for an answer) gets to be more than you care to deal with at any given moment, it’s nice to know you can slip away into different kind of world. A freaky kind of world. Stanley Kubrick’s world. The Stanley Kubrick: Limited Edition Collection ($100) offers up this brilliant director’s greatest works, like Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut. A few hours of escape with Jack Nicholson or Malcom McDowell, and a night aboard Diddy’s yacht will seem much more tolerable.
