Exquisitely handcrafted and engineered, the luxury toy car draws inspiration from early 20th-century low-drag coachwork for its design. Offered in a limited edition of only 100 copies, the Boattail Racer is handmade from materials that time cannot easily erode to ensure faithful service for generations to come.
Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Neiman Marcus
The Chevrolet Camaro has had a luxury convertible makeover: the Neiman Marcus exclusive edition of just 100. The top-of-the-line 2SS model has a ferocious 6.2-litre V8 engine and the purchaser's choice of a 426hp six-speed manual or 400hp six-speed automatic transmission. It also features 21-inch polished aluminium wheels, tyres wrapped in ultra-high performance Pirelli P-Zero, Bluetooth connectivity, rear parking assist, and 245-watt Boston Acoustics sound system.
Limited Lightweight Roadsters
Estonian bike manufacturer Renard has come up with a limited edition carbon fibre motorbike named the Renard GT (Grand Tourer). The lightweight aircraft aluminium components, reduced rotational masses, and low centre of gravity mean that the Renard GT rider will enjoy total control in every manoeuvre. Its ‘Quattrovalvole’ Moto Guzzi V-twin engine powers the machine to a top speed of 250kph.
