Introducing what could possibly be the “most ambitious supercar project since the McLaren F1”—the AM RB 001. Created jointly by Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing, the AM RB 001 is the brainchild of F1 legend Adrian Newey and is potentially a game-changer for the high-end exotic market. With a normally aspirated bespoke V-12 and what can only be described as radical body design elements, the AM RB 001 is said to be faster than a race-trim F1 around a road course. That fact remains to be seen. However, with a structure of entirely F1 spec carbon fiber and 1 horsepower per kg (estimated 1000 kg weight, you do the math)—it is entirely possible. The price is steep and even though it is expected to be north of $2.5 million, there are over 300 well-heeled individuals in line to get their mitts on one.

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
