The Lamborghini Aventador LP 570-4 Superveloce Roadster is special and it’s not just the name. At 1,575 kg, it is 50 kg lighter than the coupe. The 6.5-litre V12 engine brings power-to-weight ratio to a stunning 476 PS per tonne. Top speed is 350 kmph and 0 to 100 kmph flashes past in 2.9 seconds. The four-wheel drive car with adaptive pushrod suspension and a dynamic steering system should also corner rather well. The top? Carbon fibre, under 6 kg and it fits into the luggage compartment.

Maverick Mechanical from Victorinox retains all the appeal of a sporty and robust watch in its adventurer styling, with its broad 43 mm stainless steel case, unidirectional rotating bezel, triple-treated anti-reflective sapphire crystal dial, and water resistance to 100 metres. The ladies’ version, in a 34 mm case, is the brand’s first mechanical watch for women and offers all the same features as its alter ego on a smaller scale. victorinoxwatches.com
