Pretty, and Pretty Quick
In the Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series, AMG has tuned the fabulous 6.2-litre V8 engine to produce 622 PS, up from 583 PS. The torque has dropped by 14 Nm, but Mercedes claims a 0-100 kmph timing of 3.6 second and a top speed of 315 kmph. Ceramic brakes with twin rotors provide the stopping force for this 1,550-kg marvel.

Petrol-electric Power
The Lexus LF-LC Blue concept car comes with an Atkinsoncycle petrol motor combined with an electric motor and a battery pack. This petrol-electric combo is expected to produce around 500 PS of power. A remote touch theme defines the interiors, with a 12.3-inch touchscreen taking centre stage. It is operated via touch control, and also controls navigation and audio.

Fold It, Bag It
So, you still like your newspaper? Then get a hold of The Newspaper Bag, fold your daily into it and be smart about it, instead of looking like the owner of a fly-swatter. Made from suede and leather, it’s available in grey and moss green.


More Than a Face
This Seiko Astron piece syncs its time and date with GPS satellites, adjusting time zones automatically, too, as you travel. Solar powered, and with a titanium or silicon strap, it has a limited run of just 2,500.

Your Own Little Cloud
For days when the sun doesn’t have quite the right shade of shine, switch on this chandelier. The Néfos Suspension Cloud Light by Paulo De Lucci diffuses light, like it’s squeezing through little fluffy, white clouds.
