The future is here and to some it may not sound so good. The Ferrari 488 GTB is the latest Supercar to come out of Maranello and it's perhaps  one of the most important automobiles to ever carry the Ferrari name. What makes it so special? Turbocharging, Laws on emissions from around the world are forcing automakers like Ferrari to use new techniques on their cars to make them faster then their predecessors, but at the same time they must comply with new emission standards. Turbocharging is nothing new, in fact it's been around for decades. This isn't even the first Ferrari to use the technology; that title is held be the legendary F40 built from 1987-1992.

Lykan Hypersport By W Motors

 
W Motors, based in Beirut, has recently unveiled the remarkable Lykan Hypersport. In addition to its 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds, the Hypersport can reach a top speed of more then 240 miles per hour. But at this speed, it’s going to cost you plenty – about $3.4 million plenty. And that’s a bargain compared to the Bugatti Veyron Supersport. Even if you’re ready to break out the Amex for the Lykan, get in line right away, because W Motors is only producing seven. 
 
If you are one of the lucky seven to obtain one, you have some very cool options on this car. Additionally, the headlights are encrusted with diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies, and the interior has solid gold wire stitching.  For more information, check out www.wmotors.ae

I grew up on the water and have always had a sweet spot for boats. I’ve piloted or owned small open bow riders, cabin cruisers and 50-foot yachts. I still even operate a fireboat from time to time. So I’ve been in a lot of different sea conditions. But today was special. Today, I was being treated to a private ride on one of the most luxurious production yachts being built today – the Azimut Flybridge 48.
