If there is one thing we learned from our fathers, it’s this: If it ain’t broke, don’t fuck with it. Words to live by. That aside, we were pleasantly surprised with what Germany’s Gemballa did with the McLaren 12C Spider. For those un-familiar, Gemballa has long been a tuner largely catering to Porsche automobiles. Truth be told, they are sometimes accused of taking beautiful cars and making them, uh, ugly. Not so with the McLaren. Gemballa simply improves on what could be one of the classiest supercars on the road. Leaving the 625 horsepower V-8 alone, they add new carbon fiber aerodynamic package, leather and Alcantara interior in choice of colors as well as color matched gauges. This package starts around $25,000. For those feeling flush, and we assume if you own a McLaren – you are, ultra light GForged One alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sports are available for an additional, cough, $10,000 and change.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
