Hello Kitty

To mark Jaguar's 75th anniversary, the brand has launched the Jaguar XKR 75. The limited-edition kitty (only 75 units will be produced) features a 530-hp, 483 lb-ft supercharged V-8; recalibrated adaptive suspension, carbon-fiber aero bits, red brake calipers, special alloy wheels and a set of distinctive stripes, making it one of the most exclusive XKRs on the road.

Motor skills

The future has landed, or should we say taken off? Terrafugia, a small, privately held firm, has won FAA approval for its flying car and if all goes to plan the vehicle could be on the road, and in the air, by next year. Known as the Transition, the latest model has a more car-like look, with traditional headlights and a license plate holder. Other fixtures include an improved wing that folds up with a touch of a switch, like in a convertible car, rear-wheel drive, independent suspension and even a futuristic touch screen interface in the cockpit.

Waves of luxury

The high life on the high seas doesn't get much better than on private members' club Quintessentially One's 220-metre luxury superyacht. And now the club is selling apartments on board. The superyacht has 12 triplex residential apartments on the top decks, a restaurant run by Wolseley, a Quintessence spa and a shopping emporium. Other lavish amenities include a night bar, a range of water sport activities, high-tech business centre, an onboard library, kids' area and plenty of bespoke services. Life is good.

Joy ride

Boys who love their toys are going to love the RANGER RZR 4, a sport side-by-side capable of carrying four passengers. The RZR 4 has an 800cc Twin EFI engine and at 569 kg, it's lighter than many two-seaters. For optimal, agile handling on any terrain, RANGER RZR 4 features long travel suspension with 12 in/30.5 cm of suspension travel and ground clearance. The rear anti-sway bar and dual rate springs keeps the chassis flat through corners - a joy ride indeed. For more, visit www.polarisindustries.com
