Ferrari also makes watches

The Ferrari Jumbo has a titanium case and Swiss-made ETA quartz chrono movement. It is particularly suitable to sporting and leisure use, however, as it offers a choice of stopwatch and counter buttons.
At Ferrari, accurate time-keeping is main priority because even a 10th of a second can make all the difference out there on the track. That's why the Ferrari Jumbo takes its inspiration from the world of motor racing and the Scuderia Ferrari's activities. To underscore this link, the Ferrari Jumbo watch comes in a special rubber presentation case shaped to resemble an F1 tyre. This original touch, of course, makes the watch something of a collector's item too.It is priced around 292 euros (Exclusive of Vat)

A-BAT - Concept Vehicle from Toyota

The A-BAT offers customers the versatility of hauling a standard 4x8 sheet of plywood one day, then taking a family on a camping trip the next. It features a four-foot bed with more flexibility than the standard pickup truck. The translucent roof panel slides open to allow for tall cargo in the cab; and the bed lengthens an additional two feet when the pass-through midgate is folded down into the cab. The rugged exterior of the A-BAT is contrasted by the four-passenger modern interior. The door trim, shoulder, armrest and instrument panel pads and seat cushions are made of a tough, lightweight and comfortable material that can be selected for personalization. In addition, the colors are coordinated to enhance the sleek interior environment.Inside, the A-BAT has a retractable, portable navigation unit with a seven-inch diagonal screen and Wi-Fi Internet. Other advanced features include a port for portable device assistant synchronization and a hard drive for digital music. The solar panels on the dash recapture energy from the sun to assist in the charging of the navigation unit, portable power pack and backlit information displays.

1957 Ford Thunderbird on Route 66

"Don't mess with success" was the guiding principle at Ford when the 1957 Thunderbird was introduced. The Thunderbird was Ford's answer to the popular Chevrolet Corvette, and from its debut in 1955 the Thunderbird was a runaway hit. Both cars answered America's demand for a two-seat sports car like the type American GI's had seen in Europe, but the Thunderbird's all-steel body with roll-up windows and a hefty V-8 engine was more refined than the Corvette. This 1957 model was the last two-seater Thunderbird to be built and certainly its most popular.
