Arkonik, the English company that builds and hand assembles some of our favorite Land Rover Defenders, is back with a new model that’s definitely going to turn some heads. The Arkonik Land Rover Project KOOP 110—so named because it’s a Defender 110 built for the KOOP family farm that’s been around for generation—is decked out with everything you could ask for in terms of upgrades. Kahn 1983 18″ alloy wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich AT tires. KBX signature grill, Puma bonnet, satin black checker plate, wing-top vents, Raptor-coated steering and front differential guard. Illumination is never going to be an issue either, because of the twin-cat LED headlights, Hella Rally Xenon HID spots and a rear LED work lamp. And then there’s the interior styling with just enough upgrades to make it a comfortable, modern, daily driver without sacrificing any of the vintage SUV charm you’ve come to expect from an old school Land Rover. Arkonik’s Project KOOP 110 is already spoken for, but Arkonik can build you one of your own starting at around $100,000.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
