Don’t let its classic Porsche good looks and rear-engine layout fool you, the RUF 2017 CTR is anything but a Porsche. Unveiled at Geneva, this new RUF CTR is the first RUF sports car to be based on a chassis completely of the firm’s own design and pays tribute to the 1987 CTR “Yellow Bird.” After five years of design and development, RUF arrived at this: a rear-engine carbon fiber monocoque chassis sports car powered by a twin-turbo 3.6L flat-six. The combination of that engine, six-speed manual transmission and lightweight construction means the RUF 2017 CTR develops 700 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque, which leads to a top speed over 220mph with 0-62 mph in less than three seconds and 0-124mph in less than nine seconds. The car is still a prototype at this point, but series production of a limited run of 30 units is scheduled to begin in 2018 in Germany.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
