Juan Manuel Fangio’s 1956 Ferrari 290 MM was sold at a New York auction on Dec. 10 for a mind-boggling $28.05 million. The Ferrari was built for Fangio to drive in the 1956 Mille Miglia, where he placed fourth.

Although the differences visible in these camo shots of the 2017 Audi A4 Allroad don’t seem to be earth-shattering, we are excited to see this thing hit the road.

Out in the wilderness without a phone or cell service? No worries with a Spot Gen3. The little personal GPS device is able to track your location, send pre-programmed messages and the device has an S.O.S. feature that will bring help right to your location. The product is so successful that Spot just broke the 4,000 save mark since its release in 2007.

Lifestyle

This time of year, the men’s fashion world is awash in sweaters. Rather than going with a triple-collared, double breasted monstrosity, invest in one of L.L.Bean’s classic Norwegian Crewnecks. These durable wool numbers have been around for decades, and they never go out of style.
