Phillips Design Line HDTV

This new HDTV set from Phillips is fashioned out of a single pane of glass and is meant to be leaned up against a wall. It casts light upon the wall behind it with Phillip's Ambilight system. The HDTV's will be available in 46" and 55"...the latter which is expected to sell for around $4,500 when it is launched in May. If you have rug rats at home, you should probably consider selling them or have their little appendages amputated before you have this giant piece of leaning glass installed in your home.

Corvette Shooting Brake

As a dyed-in-the-wool, Shooting Brake fanboy, I feel compelled to share every iteration of the Shooting Brake that I come across. Feast your eyes on the Callaway C21 Aero Wagon. Once you have your new C7 Corvette in your garage, pack your bags and get ready for a drive to Lyme, Connecticut....home of Reeves Callaway's custom shop. The conversion will set you back about $15,000 and will be perfect for those 200 mph runs to Costco. Deliveries are scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of this year.

For those of you new to the Shooting Brake concept, check this out:

LaFerrari, Successor to the Enzo

Ferrari has a deep and rich history with their flagship vehicles. It started in the 60's with the jaw-dropping GTO and then came absolutely stunning cars like the F40, F50 and Enzo. Yesterday in Geneva, Ferrari unveiled their newest flagship, LaFerrari.

Remarkably, it's a hybrid. The core of the power comes from an 800 horsepower V-12. This is bolstered by two electric motors which are powered by KERS technology from their Formula 1 car. Total output is 960 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is 217 mph and it will hit 0-60 in just a few clicks over 2 seconds.

Only 499 LaFerrari's will be made. If you want one, load up your debit card with $1.31 million and call a close friend who owns a fleet of Ferraris....because current Ferrari owners get first crack. The more Ferraris your friend owns, the better your odds of landing one of these.

Power comes from a handmade, twin-turbo AMG V-8, putting out a most impressive 536 horsepower. If you want one, stuff $525,000 in your wallet and head to your closest Mercedes dealership.
