According to recent reports, the monstrous 2017 BMW M760i XDrive will start at $154,795. That massive pricetag will get you 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V12 with 601-hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. That's enough to get the Bavarian sedan to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. In addition, M performance-tuned steering, braking, and suspension ensure you can do more than just go fast.
Making its debut as a concept truck in 2014, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 is finally becoming a reality. Yesterday marked its first appearance as a production truck at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show. Why is the ZR2 is an off roader’s dream? Although the 2.8 liter Duramax diesel is a great attribute, the real attraction is the Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve shocks and the 3.5” widening of the truck. When all is said and done, the new ZR2 is essentially a miniature Ford Raptor with the same amount of fun.
The time has finally come, Mercedes-Maybach has debuted the S650 Cabriolet. Although plenty of people would happily throw their money at this 621-horsepower, 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 drop-top, Mercedes-Maybach has announced that only 75 S650s will grace our shores.
I totally understand that only a certain kind of person may need a wind-up watch case but chances are your dad (or you, no judgements), may have enough watches to take advantage of such an item. A company called Travelteq has started producing a handsome watch roller made of vegetable tanned leather with an alcantara interior. A solid gift for someone this upcoming holiday season? Perhaps.
