Hail the return of Merc-AMG’s Black Series. As great as the SLS was to drive, the new and future king is the 720 horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo flat-plane crank V8 qualifies as the brand’s most powerful AMG V8, ever, moving this track-hungry GT to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds. The thing tops out at 202 mph, in case that matters to you. Even the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission has been situated between rear wheels for improved front-to-rear weight distribution for ideal track management. Aggressive aerodynamics like an underbody tray with Venturi channels, a big front splitter, and a rear spoiler with an active wing feature. Active damping suspension adjusts for road and racing conditions, and the carbon body ensures lightness for ideal performance and rigidity. The traction control system even adjusts for nine levels of slip so you can drift like the nut you are. Standard equipment also includes The carbon-ceramic rotors that will bring it to a halt with authority. The interior doesn’t get neglected thanks to ample amounts of carbon fiber, Nappa leather, and contrast orange stitching all over the place. And lest you forget that the car wants to track all day long, there’s a fat roll bar in the back. Expect pricing to approach, if not exceed, a quarter mil.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
