Luxury Lego: building a Bugatti Chiron is not child's play

Lego says is the most complex model yet in their Technic series, the recently-released Bugatti Chiron, which is as close as many will ever get to the real thing.
This massive kit arrives in a box weighing 6kg and measuring 15x57x37.5cm. Within are smaller, perfectly-nested boxes designed to present the building process in stages – its engine section mates with the front half of the vehicle in precisely the same manner as the real car. Be warned: there is a serious feeling of self-doubt upon discovering not one but two instruction manuals totalling over 600 pages.

The movable gear paddle actually works the 8-speed gearbox, and – of course – the steering is entirely lifelike and correct. It even comes with a “top speed key” like the actual vehicle for raising or lowering the rear wing, while the storage compartment contains a miniature Bugatti overnight bag.
With the gift-giving season beckoning, this is the sort of present that any car fanatic would appreciate.

The lavish 5-star luxury hotel Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi spends $130,000 a year for the upkeep of its bespoke 6,560 square foot ceiling embellished with 22-carat gold and silver leaves.
The reason for such a high annual price tag is the fact that the gold and silver leaves last only four to five years and need to be completely replaced.

The stunning display needs about 50 gold leaves per ten square feet, which comes out to around $100.
Craftsmen are able to replace about 64 square feet of gold per day, which works out to about $130,000 per year, Kuriakose said.
The thin sheets of gold come from Italy. They are then rolled, pressed and then forged into even thinner leaves.

Behind the wheel of the Dubai supercar: W Motors' Fenyr SuperSport

Let’s get the numbers out of the way, because they make for impressive headline figures: the Fenyr’s high-revving, 3.8-litre, flat-six engine has an almost freakish output of 800hp and 980Nm of torque. It hits 100kph from standing in 2.8 seconds, which is the same as the Lamborghini Aventador SV (from a V12, it should be noted). The maximum speed is 400kph. For all those digits, the basic equation couldn’t be easier to understand: this is one of the fastest cars made, ever, anywhere in the world. For it to come from the UAE is a badge of honour that should be worn loud and proud.

The Fenyr SuperSport, then, appears to drive as ridiculously remarkably as it looks. Indeed, the only fact that exceeds such automotive excellence is that W Motors’ plans for the future are even more eye-opening. The UAE has fully arrived on the world motoring stage.

orn in the 70s and, for the most part, banished to the attic of the ski chalet in the 90s, Moon Boots have made a major comeback in recent years. Not convinced? Take a look at the totally revamped collection they just dropped for autumn/ winter 2018 and you might just change your tune. The extensive and impressive selection of rainbow colours, metallics, shearling, embroidery and sequins means there's something for everyone. They've even reworked the classic shapes into more streamlined styles for an 'urban' collection that would look equally at home on the pavement as the piste.

French brand Fusalp was created in 1952 when it launched the first technical ‘fuseau’ ski stirrup pants that would revolutionise skiwear. Adopted by ski champions in the 1960s, Fusalp’s signature silhouettes combine French elegance with a sporty and slender cut. If baggy trousers are not your bag, Fusalp could be the one for you.
