The minds at McLaren have been delivering a wide swath of exotics lately including the track-focused Senna, the user-friendly GT, and the wind-cheating Speedtail. But it’s their latest offering that has us going nuts, and it’s the open-top, windscreen-less Elva two-seat roadster. It also looks like no other McLaren to come before it. The carbon-fiber heavy construction means the car is rigid and light, lighter than any McLaren. Even the seats are made of the stuff. It gets powered by a 804-horsepower twin-turbo V8 to the rear wheels and stops via race-ready, heat-dissipating carbon-ceramic brakes. The Elva has no windscreen and no roof, making it the brand’s first open-cockpit car. Lest you think driving it will be like sitting in a wind tunnel, McLaren has created active air management that sends air over you and your frightened passenger. Still, we’d advise helmets because, you know, bugs. But also break out your wallet because it’ll cost $1.69 million and only 399 units will be made.


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.
