10 Christmas can't haves
« on: November 30, 2007, 04:20:01 PM »

The holiday season is fast approaching, meaning it's time to start racking your brain for the ideal gift for that someone special. If this sounds like you, I'm afraid the following selection will be of no help whatsoever, unless of course you have remarkably deep-pockets... and in some instances, even that wont help.

1. The million dollar laptop In March UK-based bespoke luxury goods creator Luvaglio announced the first million dollar laptop featuring a very rare colored diamond piece of jewelery that doubles up as the power button and also acts as security identification.

2. 1 million euro Lamborghini Reventon Although it is based on the Murciélago LP640, the exterior design of the Reventón is completely new and combines extraordinary styling with its limited edition status and price tag to make the supercar a symbol of extreme exclusivity. Only 20 of the 1 million euro vehicles are to be built and delivered in 2008, but already they are all sold.

3. The Mangusta 165 - World's largest Open yacht. As the the largest Open yacht in the world, the EUR 20 million Mangusta 165’ (50 meters) towers over just about everything in the harbor.

4. Yamaha's Tesseract four-wheel motorcycle Yamaha revealed a whole new class of four-wheel recreational machine at the Tokyo Motor Show that combines motorcycle performance and maneuverability with four wheels worth of traction and road-holding capability. The Tesseract is not yet in production but fingers crossed - you might find it under the tree next year.

5. MUON: Seven-foot tall, ultra high-end audio loudspeaker Standing at nearly seven feet tall, the spectacular MUON loudspeaker is the product of a collaboration between the engineering team at KEF and leading industrial designer Ross Lovegrove. Just 100 pairs are to be made available in ten select cities world-wide with the price tag set at US$140,000 per pair.

6. XSR48: 1600hp supercar-inspired luxury powerboat Labeled the ‘Bugatti Veyron’ of the sea – the stunning XSR48 is a luxury £1.2m powerboat powered by two bi-turbo 11.3L diesel engines that takes inspiration for both its performance and styling from the World’s finest supercars.

7. The most expensive TV in the world This EUR 100,000, 40-inch LCD television set by Neapolitan (from Naples) Keymat Industrie s.p.a. is plated in white gold and studded with 160 diamonds (4 gm) of diamonds.

8. The 1.3 million dollar mobile Russian company JSC Ancort has teamed with celebrity jeweller Peter Aloisson to create a very upmarket version of Swiss Crypto Telecommunication Security’s Crypto Smart telephone which will sell for US$1.3 million.

9. The sub US$200,000 family aircraft – the Sky Yacht Skyacht Aircraft has created a whisper quiet, steerable, Personal Blimp capable of sustained and affordable flight taht's due to hit the market with a price tag of around US$200,000 - cheap when compared to the smallest helium airship which costs US$2,000,000+ or a top-notch helium ship costs more than US$12 million.

10. Holiday in orbit: Galactic Suite space resort Put this one on the list for 2012. The Galactic Suite Project aims to offer travelers the “most thrilling and transcendent experience ever” with a stay on board an orbital luxury getaway that offers out-of-this-world sensations including weightlessness, star gazing, amazing views of planet Earth with 15 sunsets in a day - not to mention being aboard a spaceship that takes you from 0 to 28,000kmh in 10 minutes.

I'd be happy to settle for driving a few laps in an F1 car.

You know, besides the smileys, sometimes we need a drum rimshot!
