Callaway Cars has released a tuned version of the Chevy Camaro SS. Dubbed the SC610, it’ll be equipped with a supercharger, making 610 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque. Although this is no match for Hennessey Performance’s new HPE1000 Challenger, we’d gladly take one of these Camaros out for a spin around Willow Springs.

Jeep has designed a new trim to go with the Batman vs. Superman movie premiere. The trim, called Dawn of Justice, is essentially a blacked out version of Jeep’s Latitude 4x4 trim. Because fanboys.

A solid sweater should be able to comfortably transition you through three seasons. Fortunately, Kelly Slater’s clothing line OuterKnown has designed the perfect jumper to keep you warm and stylish for nine months of the year. Made of 85% and 15% Alpaca, the Jetlag Crew is the right thing to toss on after a long day in the water or just lounging around a campfire.
