Looks like 2014 is the year we can finally live out our Speed Racer fantasy. Making its initial debut in the U.K. and North American markets next year is the VUHL 05. The latest offering from Mexico’s VUHL (Vehicles of Ultra High Performance and Lightweight) is a racetrack ready two-seater that happens to be street legal. The 05 has a monocoque chassis with a reinforced plastic body (carbon fiber is optional) that barely registers on the scale at 1532 pounds. Get yourself some super cool goggles though as the windshield is more of a bug deflector than anything else. Under the hood is a Ford 2.0 ECO Boost turbocharged engine that makes 285 horsepower through a 6 speed manual tranny. Get it on the track and 0 to 62 mph is a memory at 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 152 mph. Initial production will be limited to 50.

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.
