Automotive

VLF Automotive is finally selling the V-8 powered Karmas (now Destinos). Powered by the same supercharged V-8 found in the C6 Corvette ZR1, the beastly car cranks out 638 horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque. Expect to pay $229,000 for the privilege of purchasing one.

Congratulations to Mark Higgins for absolutely dominating his own Isle of Man TT record. Using a 600-horsepower Subaru WRX, Higgins blasted through 37.7 miles in a mind-blowing 17 minutes and 35 seconds.

Gear

If you are looking to skip the LIE traffic on your way to the Hamptons, hope on a helicopter. BLADE is a NY-based helicopter company allows clients to circumvent traffic and cruise to the beach for as “low” as $495 a person.
