The Most Expensive Property In The U.S. Comes With A Helicopter

We are accustomed to skyrocketing property prices, but one that commands $250 million is plain ridiculous, but besides being a chart topper on the most expensive property in stateside, it does come with its perks and when look at those perks, you probably will think it is money well spent, especially if you are petrolhead. For $250 million, this Bel-Air property comes with seven staff members, a helicopter landing pad complete with a helicopter (!) and a car collection with no less than 12 exotic luxury four-wheelers, including the likes of Rolls-Royce Dawn, Ferrari 488, Pagani Huayra, 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K, Spyker C8, Ariel Atom 3, Bentley Continental GT convertible and Bugatti Veyron, and 10 motorcycles. Also included is a Brooklands Edition 3-wheeler too! Continue reading The Most Expensive Property In The U.S. Comes With A Helicopter

For £20K, You Can Fly Gold With the DJI Phantom 4 Gold Edition

So, you don’t have the money to fly in gold, or rose gold for that matter? Well, fret not. We have good news for you. You do not need to be obscenely rich to fly in gold cos’ with the DJI Phantom 4 Gold Edition offered by UK-based drone seller, DronesDirect, you can fly gold too, though granted, not so much as flying in gold. That’s kind of the ’discount’ you’d expect when you are paying a fraction of the price of a rose gold-treated Cobalt Valkyrie-X. Apparently, an one-off item and presumably created not by DJI but by DJI partner, DronesDirect, this particular imaging drone sets itself apart from the ‘lesser’ DJI Phantom 4 with a pretty stunning 24-carat gold plating on its body which also saw the landing gear getting the gold treatment.

DeepFlight’s New 3-Seat Super Falcon Submarine Targets Tropical Resorts

Most people won’t be able to afford a yacht, much less a leisure submarine, in their lifetime but thanks to the collaboration between personal submarine maker DeepFlight and China-based deep-sea equipment maker and research firm Rainbowfish Ocean Technology, you may be able to ‘fly’ underwater soon when you hit up certain tropical resorts. We said ‘may’ because it is unclear how much this sport will cost. For all we know, it may be still prohibitive for average consumers. But rest assure the plan is in the works and if money is no object, your dream of underwater experience without getting wet will realized pretty soon.

World’s Most Expensive Tires From Z Tyre Cost A Whopping $600,000

Tires are expendables. They get worn and need to be replaced with a new set and hence, it is hard to imagine anyone, or any establishment would consider giving this rubber compound a bling. Then again, sometimes what people and/or company thinks defy logic or sensible considerations and the same goes to the person who paid way over the odds for this set of super luxe-up tyres (tires) from UK tire manufacturer Z Tyre. And how much exactly was it? AED 2,202,000, which works out to be around $600,000, or £420,400, as officially recorded by Guinness World Records last month. That’s one heck of tire, isn’t it? I can’t imagine a tire that cost a thousand bucks each, much less one that commands $150,000 a pop. Now, that’s preposterous. Continue reading World’s Most Expensive Tires From Z Tyre Cost A Whopping $600,000

$3,200 15-Year Rib Steak Is The Craziest Thing We Heard All Day

When it comes opulence, the sky is not the limit (remember space travel?) and while we thought lavish living includes the usual hundred dollar meals, private jets, fast cars, grand boats, and majestic properties, it appears that all those are pale in comparison to the world’s most expensive beef, the 15-Year Rib Steak from French butcher shop Polmard Eleveur Boucher. At around $3,200 for the said rib steak, it may not be pricer than a Bugatti, but dollar-for-dollar, it is many times more exorbitant than any physical goods money can buy. It is beef for God sake. You know. Something that you eat, digest and poops out eventually. So yeah, Continue reading $3,200 15-Year Rib Steak Is The Craziest Thing We Heard All Day

One And Half Years On, This Is Still The Most Expensive Sandwich

It’s a shame that we just came across this, but given that the ocean of “world’s most expensive,” we authorized ourselves to be forgiven for the lapse. We are talking about the world’s most expensive sandwich, or as Guinness World Records called “Most Expensive Sandwich Commercially Available,” the Quintessential Grilled Cheese from the six decades old Upper East Side chocolates and coffee shop, Serendipity 3. The official world record was awarded on October 29, 2014. Though about one and half years since, Quintessential Grilled Cheese still held the record as the most expensive sandwich, which makes us wonder: why hasn’t anybody make another sandwich that tops it? Perhaps, it is not worth the time, or effort? Continue reading One And Half Years On, This Is Still The Most Expensive Sandwich

Would You Pay 100 Bucks To Savor A Purple Yam Donut With 24K Gold Leaf?

If you think donuts are just donuts, think again. Brooklyn-based Manila Social Club has up the ante in the donut arena with what could perhaps be the most lavish donut ever.
