In the world of gadgets and general cool stuff, money is no object. Unless you have a wad of $100 bills which also doubles as a Bluetooth speaker. That shite be cool. You know what else is cool? An R/C car which can drive so fast that it runs on water, a personal submarine, a futuristic Maserati classic and a private heli-jet. You know where you’re at – make it rain.

#1 U-Boat Worx-C Researcher 3 Submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine. No really, you can actually do that now thanks to U-Boat. The makers say it’s made for research purposes but we’re sure that’s never stopped any curious billionaire from blinging one up. The tools available to the weekend submariner are endless – pinchers and sensors allow the driver to collect samples and organisms, check water conditions, and create underwater maps, all while operating from a wide variety of vessels. There’s also enough space for you and two buddies to go deep. Like 1,700 metres deep.

#2 1972 Maserati Boomerang

Bonhams returns with another blast from the past which looks like it actually belongs in the future.

The car was originally designed by Georgetto Giugiaro and has been fitted with a 4.7 litre V8 from a Maserati Bora, total power – 310hp.
