It isn’t too often that we see a luxury automaker produce accessories to further accentuate the exteriors of their instantly recognizable and already well-admired cars. Naturally, when Mercedes-Benz chose to produce such an accessory for their cars, they wanted to refrain from adding something that could be seen as garish and keep it decidedly simple. The Illuminated Star is none other than just that, a simple LED-infused Mercedes-Benz logo that illuminates the radiator grille of the vehicle. The star can currently be outfitted on the GL-Class MY13+, M-Class MY12+, E-Class MY14+ or CLS MY06+ models, but the carmaker hopes to extend availability to other models in the near future.
Dissatisfied with the V8 Vantage, or its bigger brother with the V12 engine? Then meet Aston Martin‘s newest monster – the V12 Vantage S. While the name to most would normally denote fancier interior trim and a lightened body, the British masterpiece manufacturer have disregarded rival companies’ traditions and decked out this new release with a revised 6.0-liter V12 engine now outputting 565 horsepower, a new seven-speed “hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission” with race-spec software, and enhanced three-stage adaptive damping in its suspension. More noteworthy however is the improved top speed that now pushes this sports coupé past the 200mph milestone, a feat accomplished by only one other car in the Aston Martin family – the seven-figured special edition super car One-77. With a projected price tag of around $200,000 USD and a release in early 2014, this once touted “Baby Aston” seems to have grown up into a bona fide brute.
Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot has outdone itself yet again with the creation of this patent-pending watch crafted with red ceramic. The red is a tribute to the red of Monaco, which will host the fifth edition of the Only Watch auctions on September 28th this fall. As for the timepiece itself, there is something distinctly primal about this release. If it isn’t the skeletal workings visible through the double AR-coated sapphire crystals, it surely must be the black alligator leather strap framing and complementing the 45mm case made of titanium and composite resin. The groundbreaking sanguine red ceramic bezel is affixed to the case with six H-shaped titanium screws.
Since its inception in 1963, the engineers at Porsche have spent nearly every moment overcoming a design flaw that makes the 911 unique; a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive car is inherently unstable. In spite of this obstacle, the car stands as an example of what a sports car should be, and the 911 50th Anniversary Edition ($125,000 USD) continues that heritage. With a 430 hp flat six that reaches speeds of 186 mph and does zero to 60 in 4.2 seconds, it's equally at home on the road or the track. Porsche Active Suspension Management, a sport exhaust system, and 20-inch wheels recall its 50-year history of performance. With only 1,963 models going into production, you'd better reserve yours now.

It’s a sports cliche to say that a powerhouse college football or basketball program “doesn’t rebuild, it reloads.” You could say that when Victoria’s Secret goes to put its bras and panties on new girls, it doesn’t rebuild, it reloads. You’ll never catch us saying Adriana Lima (age 31) should quit her Angels gig, or that we don’t want to see retirees Gisele (age 32) and Izabel Goulart (age 28) in their underwear — but would it be such a bad thing if a new Girl from Ipa Nima went walking? We spied these pictures of Daiane Sodré, who is an amazing 20-year-old Brazilian model. Is she the next Gisele or Adriana? That’s a heavy statement to make — checkout her hot gallery after the jump and let us know what you think on Twitter. [See Gallery]
