The 1967 Jaguar Pirana Coupe by Bertone is, quite frankly, one of the weirdest concepts ever produced. Despite being built on commission for the Daily Telegraph for the 1967 London Motor show at Earl’s Court, and going on to influence the Lamborghini Espada that would also be produced by Bertone, this particular automobile seems to have a lot more in common with the fastback American cars that would come only a few years later. That same low slung, rear heavy design. Big windows. Plenty of louvers. Sleek, simple and sloping design. It’s an obscure piece of motoring history complete with an interior filled with plenty of leather and even more switches and gauges that RM Sotheby’s is auctioning off later this year. This 1967 Jaguar Pirana by Bertone rolls across the block during the RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction from August 15 – 17 in Monterey, California. The auction also includes the 1939 Porsche Type 64 Coupe and the Jaguar XJ13 reproduction identical to the Le Mans original. It’s going to be one helluva sale.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
