6 Seat Luxury Submarine

6 Seat Luxury Submarine

It’s not every day you see a mini submarine that catches your eye.

I can only imagine this, but there must come a point in a billionaire’s life where they’ve run out of things to buy. There are the houses, the cars, the Michelin star restaurants, and then there’s the yacht.…

C’était un rendez-vous

On a quiet Sunday morning in August 1976, when most of Paris was asleep or on vacation, French film director Claude Lelouch took to the streets in his Ferrari 275GTB (or did he?).

Screwdriver handle used as a car key

Drive It Like You Stole It
