Pretend for a moment that you were given untethered access to the automotive toy boxes at VW, Audi, and Lamborghini. What automotive pornography would you dream up? Fabrizio Giugiaro, from the Italian design and engineering firm ItalDesign, had just this opportunity as it was his passion to create a dual purpose sports car. An exotic hybrid if you will. His vision came to reality, after 50,000 man hours, in the form of the Parcour. Looking somewhat like an oddly shaped Lamborghini on 22 inch wheels, the Parcour is equally adept on twisty winding roads as it is off-road. A 550 hp V-10 gets the power to all the  wheels via an Audi 7 Speed S-Tronic transmission. Go off the beaten path and a hydraulic suspension can adjust the height of the Parcour to one of three ride heights. And as ItalDesign is majority owned by Lamborghini, it is fitting that the doors are of the butterfly type. Will the Parcour ever make it to the showroom floor? Unlikely, but we can always dream.

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.
