Have you ever wished you could unlock your car with your wrist watch? After 18 months of research and engineering in collaboration with Swiss watchmakers Jaeger-LeCoultre, Aston Martin has finally introduced that option to their new (approx. $233,000) Rapide 4-door sports car by providing a watch that not only tells the time but can also lock or unlock the car. By pressing “Open” between the 8 and 9 hour mark, the AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder key timepiece unlocks the Aston Martin Rapide, while touching “Close” between the 3 and 4 does the opposite and locks the car. This luxury watch also includes an added feature “Find Me”, which turns the head lamps on for better identification when you press both “Open” and “Close” at the same time. The “James Bond like” AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder watch can be yours after you satisfy the (approx. $33,800) price tag, but don’t forget, first you have to buy the car.
DC Design’s Indian couchbuilder Dilip Chhabria designed this one and only $1.2 million “Black Ruby” Rolls Royce Coupe. The “Black Ruby” is exactly what happens when you cross a Rolls Royce Phantom with a Nissan 350Z. With a ‘one of a kind’ design, the one-off “Black Ruby” adds to its uniqueness with butterfly doors and a red interior. The all black coupe was initially created upon the request of an Indian Maharaja (king), but it must have become undesirable because it is now up for grabs.
