Breitling has finally unveiled its highly-anticipated Cockpit B50 timepiece.

Aston Martin has released another one of their awesome special editions – this one is dubbed the Vanquish Carbon Black. While Aston Martin is known as the vehicle of choice for James Bond, the Vanquish Carbon Black looks more like something a supervillain (or Batman, perhaps) would prefer. It comes with a powerful 6.0-liter V12 AM29 engine which churns out 568 bhp (576 PS), delivered to rear wheels through an 8-speed Touchtronic transmission. Thus the Vanquish Carbon Black can go from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, and reach a top speed of 201 mph (about 320 km/h). In keeping

The latest member of DL Yacht’s Dreamline series, the Dreamline 26M is a great ship which, despite its relatively small size (26 meters in length), has all the making of a luxurious contemporary superyacht. The shape of the hull, designed by Giuseppe Arrabito, is the result of extensive research and testing, and ensures the vessel encounters the least amount of resistance possible as it cruises across the sea.

Accommodations include three luxurious guest
Developed by the eponymous Austrian company, Kormaran is more than just a really cool-looking new boat concept – it is, as its creators point out, in “a new boat class altogether.” This awesome Transformer-like vehicle can go from monohull, to catamaran, to trimaran, to bathing deck – so basically any kind of seafaring machine you need, you got it. And for a real treat, switch the Kormaran into flight mode, and you get a hydrofoil boat which shoots across the surface of the water with 80% decreased resistance, allowing it to reach top speeds of up to 38 knots (44 mph, 70km/h).
