Say hello to your money-grabbing little friend, the only place where your money goes to die a happy death.

Ripsaw EV3-F1 Sports Tank

Ripsaw were the first to debut the world’s first non-combat personal tank a few years back and now, well, they’re back. The Ripsaw EV3-F1 is self proclaimed as the most obnoxious vehicle ever built, according to its creators. What that means is that it’s a ‘sports tank’ designed to appeal to car enthusiasts who like to frolic where the road ends. The EV3-F1 features a 1,500hp engine along with a 3 metre ground clearance to ensure it can tackle the gnarliest terrain. Construction of the body is looked after with a combination of aerospace grade steel, alloy, and composites. The only thing you’ll need to worry about is where to mount the NERF cannon. And probably fuel costs.



Supreme x Louis Vuitton Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

The ultimate Ferrari for fuccbois is going up for sale. And believe it or not, it belongs to a 15-year-old kid from Dubai who can’t legally drive it. Still, it didn’t stop rich kid of Instagram Rashed Belhasa (a.k.a “Money Kicks”) from wrapping the F12 Berlinetta in Supreme x Louis Vuitton vinyl. Why? Because rich dad. The car currently has 9,500kms on the clock which is odd for a car that the driver wasn’t legally able to drive. Nonetheless if you’re looking to venture into fuccboi territory with your dab crew a year late, you can do so by handing over US$190,000.

Essence of Suntory Whisky

Suntory have released a new line of whiskies and it’s pretty damn affordable. Yes, you read right. There’s three new cask strength whiskies and each one hails from the Japanese company’s Yamazaki, Hakushu, and Chita distilleries. They also come with their own limited edition bottle.

The Yamazaki variant is a peated malt that’s been aged for 12 years and made up of berry notes with a soft smokey scent. The Hakushu option is a rye whisky which has been aged for 4 years to give a spicy and fruity taste. The Chita bottle meanwhile comes with a wine cask finish thanks to the ageing of 16 year old grain whisky in wine casks for 4 years to provide a smoother and sweeter flavour profile.

The masters of audio craftsmanship are back and this time it’s with an updated version of their flagship headphones, the H8i and H9i. The latter receives slimmed down ear cushions whilst sound quality and bass have been upgraded along with active noise-cancelling. Battery life has also been bumped up by four hours to provide 18 hours of continuous playback. 


The H8i model meanwhile receives and updated design for a cleaner aesthetic with a big improvement to battery performance. There’s now 30 hours of playback. Both headphone models also receive a transparency mode which allows the user to switch off the device and noise-cancelling so that they can hear their immediate surroundings.

911 LoveRS

A coffee table book for 911 RS lovers? That’s self-explanatory. Especially if the book’s name is 911 LoveRS.

Inside the hard cover readers will be greeted with interviews with race drivers, Porsche devotees and customers. It also marks a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 911 R in 2017.
