Mercedes-Benz-S-65-Gear-Patrol Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe
If 577 hp in the S63 AMG Coupe just isn’t enough for you, then Mercedes has something more in store: the S65 AMG Coupe. The big two-door emits 621 hp and 738 lb-ft from its hulking 6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. 60 arrives in an astonishing four seconds. Add 20″ wheels, V12 badging and one of the nicest interiors in the industry, and you should be more than satisfied. mercedes-benz.com
Travelteq-iPhone-Case-Gear-Patrol Travelteq iPhone Case
We’re firm believers in the mantra “less is more“; in our view, the same goes for a night out on the town. Travelteq’s new minimalist iPhone 5 case will not only keep your smartphone looking smart — it’ll safely hold any important cards. With no need for a wallet, maintaining your hindered balance on a barstool will be much easier. $108
Priority-Bicylces-Gear-Patrol Priority Bicylces
Finding an affordable, good-looking, and simple commuter bike that doesn’t make you look like a pompous Brooklynite (you know the type) can be a tall order. However, Priority Bicycles’ Concept is made from aluminum and uses a belt instead of a chain, making for a bike that requires less maintenance than your garden-variety fixie. The bike also features three-speed gearing, so you’ll be less likely to strain yourself on inclines. Oh, and it only costs $399 ($349 for Kickstarter backers), drastically undercutting the price of other commuter bikes. $399
Flare-Cooking-Pans-Gear-Patrol Flare Cooking Pans
You shouldn’t have to wait forever for that bacon to finish cooking — the makers of Flare realize this, which is why they teamed up with scientist Dr. Tom Povey from Oxford University to create their new line of cookware. The pots and pans incorporate fins to channel heat along the outside of the cookware. This distributes the heat of the flame evenly and helps cut down on cooking time. ~$85
Club-Monaco-X-Dom-Vetro-Arpetto-Gear-Patrol Club Monaco X Dom Vetro Arpetto
Italian eyewear maker Dom Vetro partnered with Club Monaco’s Aaron Levine to create a pair of retro-designed sunglasses. Inspired by the vision of gunning a ’68 Charger through America, and handmade in the Italian Alps, the Arpetto is perfect for living out your Vanishing Point or Bullitt fantasies (but don’t, really). Muscle car sold separately. $295
Westland-Whiskey-Gear-Patrol Westland Distillery American Single Malt
Washington state may not be what you picture when you think “great American whiskey“, but Westland Distillery’s new single malt is certainly worthy of any whiskey fan’s liquor cabinet. The spirit is based on a pale malt grown in Washington, with other specialty malts added. The result is a whiskey with notes of chocolate, nuts, cookies, mocha, pastries, caramel and raisins. $43
Goodwood-Anatomy-Gear-Patrol-Ambiance Anatomy of the Goodwood Hillclimb
The annual Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England centers around a storied Hillclimb, which winds 1.16 miles through event founder Lord March’s private estate and rises 300 feet. Drivers piloting any type of car — new or old, from sports cars to supercars, from deft Formula 1 racers to Nascar stock car growlers —- rip through the narrow course in under a minute.
