go like hell!

A MAN’S WORLDINSIDEAMERICA’S BEST NEW STEAKSTHE RISE OF PERSONAL SUBMARINESWORLD’S COOLEST COGNACSA NIGHT OUT WITH MARÍA VALVERDEIT’S POWERFUL ENOUGH TO MAKE ANY ’60S MUSCLE CAR SHRIVEL LIKE A 98-POUND WEAKLING.I’m choking on smoke in the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the cabin so consumed by the cloud that I can’t see the steering wheel. So noxious are the fumes that I open the door and stumble to the pavement. Bystanders stop and gawk.No, this is not a Cheech and Chong reunion. And these fumes, while euphoria-inducing, are actually being generated by a burnout outside the car: a raunchy, tire-roasting display by the fastest, most powerful muscle car in the genre’s half-century legacy. Amazingly, for the first time in that lunkheaded, mine’sbetter-than-yours history, there’s not even a genuine barroom debate: This hellacious,…

deep impact

THE DEEPFLIGHT SUPER FALCON MARK II’S NIMBLE WINGS LET IT PERFORM LIKE A FIGHTER JET.Forget the new space race. While we await the dawn of commercial rocket travel, the world has entered the age of the personal submarine. James Cameron has one. Red Bull’s Dietrich Mateschitz, too. Even Richard Branson. And why not? We know more about the surface of the moon than the bottom of the ocean. The latest electric crafts, aimed at nautically minded millionaires, are engineered to withstand crushing pressures and navigate narrow caverns. The DeepFlight Super Falcon Mark II (pictured) has cockpit controls and fins that let it perform like a fighter jet. While geared to the elite, the subs are also aiding exploration. (In 2012, one caught the first-ever footage of a live giant squid.)…

STEAK FRITESPETIT TROISLos AngelesAt this 21-seat Los Angeles bistro collaboration between the meat-crazed Animal boys—Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo—and chef Ludo Lefebvre, the world’s best bar steak ($33) is served with a decadent au poivre sauce and pommes frites lovingly fried in Wagyu beef fat. The primal allure of this buttery beauty may be the only thing that can break health-obsessed Angelenos from their revolting coldpressed-juice habit.PORTERHOUSECOSTATAManhattanAt chef Michael White’s year-old steakhouse, the phenomenal 40-ounce porterhouse ($122) is aged, just like Jesus in the wilderness, for 40 days. As with most great steaks, the quality is primarily in the cow (here, from Creekstone Farms in Kansas), not the preparation. The choice Costata cut is seasoned simply with salt and rosemary, seared to epic char, broiled, and served sliced with a…
