The upcoming Corvette ZR1 is a bona fide high-tech supercar, but it’s this final 1971 ZR2 that should get all the attention. Only 12 were made and all in a single year, 1971. The beast housed a monstrous 7.4 liter big-block V8 engine good for 425 horsepower and 475 lb ft of torque. The power numbers are, according to experts, underrated. The car was meant for racing, and it has heavy-duty suspension, upgraded power brakes and alloy radiator, and a close-ratio Muncie M22 4-speed manual transmission to back that up. It was better in every way than the ZR1 that was sold at the same time, but it’s extremely limited production means it sells at auction for upwards of a million bucks. This ZR2 is clad in Brands Hatch Green over a Green interior and has a mere 10 miles on the odometer, which means mint. This highly coveted ‘Vette is up for auction at Mecum now.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
