Located in Knightsbridge, an ultra-exclusive part of central London, One Hyde Park is a newly-completed residential area where apartments are so expensive even billionaires have to dig deep into their pockets to buy one. The complex, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and built by Laing O’Rourke cost an incredible £1.15 billion (almost $2 billion), so it’s no surprise it is the home of some of the most expensive apartments in the world. There are just 86 residences in total, each commanding fees you’d expect from the most luxurious private palaces. Earlier this year, a penthouse in One Hyde Park sold

We’ve recently showcased the most recent version of BMW’s R1200R motorbike. Now it’s time to take a closer look at another one of the German company’s releases – the 2015 R1200RS. The new sports tourer is equipped with a flat-twin boxer engine similar to the one powering the R1200GS, R1200GS Adventure, R1200RT, and the aforementioned R1200R. It outputs 125 hp (92 kW) at 7,750 rpm and 125 Nm (92 lb-ft) of torque at 6,500 rpm. Thanks to design features like the modified airbox, newly shaped air intake snorkels, and a centrally positioned radiator, the motorbike displays a sleek and dynamic front silhouette

A few days ago, we’ve shown you a beautiful one-of-a-kind timepiece by Vacheron Constantic called L’empreinte Du Dragon. Now, it’s time for another unique creation by the prestigious Swiss watchmaker: the Maître Cabinotier Astronomica. Many high-end brands (most notably carmakers) have special divisions dedicated to creating special products for valued clients who are willing to pay anything it takes in order to get something truly exceptional. Vacheron Constantin also has a similar “branch” – the Atelier Cabinotiers. While it’s not entirely certain the Maître Cabinotier Astronomica is the work of this particular division, the fact that it bears its name and it

“Electric supercar” doesn’t sound quite so strange anymore! Just this summer, we’ve presented the Exagon Furtive eGT and the Renovo Coupe, both powerful vehicles equipped with electric engines. Italian carmaker Tecnicar is also getting in on the action and has designed a high-performance electric coupe, giving it the (rather pretty) name of Lavinia. The vehicle will get an electric motor which outputs an impressive 800 hp (588 kW), which means it will be able to accelerate from a standstill to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds. Lavinia’s maximum speed is reportedly somewhere around 186 mph (300 km/h). Don’t get too excited, though:

Turkish shipyard Sarp Yacht is presenting their new 58-meter superyacht NB102. Called, for pretty obvious reasons, Sarp 58, the ship is a larger version of the luxury yacht Sarp 46, which is currently under construction. The 58-meter superyacht’s hull is made using of high tensile steel with extra safety built-in through dedicated watertight compartments for stabilizers and steering gear, while the superstructure is made by vacuum-bagged epoxy sandwich composite. This high-tech process ensures the vessel is lighter and more stable – and also very safe. The interior was designed by Donald Starkley and is an airy, light, and cozy space with a

Set in a late 18th century mansion (which recently went through a renovation process after being badly damaged in the 1930s), Hotel Les Ottomans is a great spot from which you can get a taste of traditional Turkey with all the contemporary comforts you could wish for. The retreat offers stunning views of the former imperial capital of Istanbul from its great location on the shores of the Bosphorus. The atmosphere is an intriguing blend of traditional Ottoman and modern luxury, made even more appealing by the fact that the accommodations only consist of ten suites. Each of these rooms has thus

Penthouse B is a magnificent apartment, part of the SoHo Gallery Building, in New York City. Located in a very desirable part of SoHo, the place was until recently a law loft space, but has seen an amazing metamorphosis under the guidance of architects Edward Siegel and Ernest de la Torre.

As soon as you enter the walnut-paneled foyer, you know you have arrived somewhere special.
