the velocity issue

CONSIDER MOUNT KILIMANJARO. At 19,341 feet high, it’s one of the world’s tallest peaks. Reaching the summit was once a triumph of humanity. Then climbers began flocking to it, using guides and maps, and making the journey seem far less superhuman. So the greatest strivers among us raised their game, competing not just to go up and down, but to do it faster than anyone else. An elite mountain runner named Kílian Jornet completed the trip in seven hours, 14 minutes—and notched more records around the world. Kilimanjaro seemed tapped out, void of competition. The man seemed unbeatable. And then, of course, someone else started beating his records. You can read about Jornet and his competitive quest on PAGE 70. It’s a great inside look at a global sport, but it’s more…

raging bull

The Formula 1–favorite Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain is no place for the timid—and until recently, no place for a Lamborghini, long a nonentity on major racetracks. But now I’m bombing around this rollicking course in the Italian brand’s most powerful production car ever, the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. It’s not for the timid, either—or, for that matter, the average driver: Only 200 of them will be sold in North America, starting at $493,095 each. The Aventador combines nuance with a murderous headlong charge—lightened and buttressed with carbon fiber, its brain stuffed with algorithms like some comic-book experiment. But those are just the basics. Here’s what makes this beast so stupid-fast: THE NAME Aventador is another in a long line of Lambos to be named after a fighting bull, and Superveloce is…

time to get real

The Hangover made you globally recognizable overnight. How did that sudden fame transform your life? Talk about velocity—that was zero to 180. Like a week and a half after it came out, my wife and I were at a sushi restaurant and everyone was looking at me like I’d farted or something. I still get guys yelling, “Toodaloo, motherfucker!” at me at stoplights. I don’t know if I could have dealt with it in my 20s. I’m happily married, I love my kids, and I love my life prior to The Hangover— so I’m very grateful that my head was in a proper place before all this happened. I wasn’t lonely or desperate for anything. You were once a full-time doctor who did stand-up at night. How crazy was that? I don’t think…

delivering the goods

Chipotle was confused: People in Postmates T-shirts kept entering its shops across the country, buying food, and then whisking it off to…where, exactly? So the chain sent a cease-anddesist letter, which delighted Postmates CEO Bastian Lehmann. “When people don’t understand what you’re doing, they try to stop it,” he says. “But that’s a great indicator that you’re changing things—and good things come from change.” His company is a one-hour messenger service that delivers anything, from anywhere, to anyone. Want a steak burrito and an iPad? On the way. Services like this have emerged and failed before, but Lehmann’s has grown steadily into a $500 million business that has run more than three million deliveries, expanded to 30 markets, and partnered with Apple, Starbucks, and 7-Eleven. A few months ago, even…

what’s the problem?

STARTING NEXT season, and continuing until 2025, ESPN and Turner Broadcasting will together pay an annual average of $2.66 billion for the rights to air NBA games—nearly triple today’s fee. Where’s the money going? Conveniently, the players’ union contract ends after next season— and players and owners are already jockeying over how to split their new riches. The main point of contention: In 2011, many owners said that they were losing money on their teams. At the time, league revenue was split unevenly, with 57 percent for the players and 43 percent for the owners. The union contract they finally settled on split revenue 50-50, with players sacrificing in order to balance the owners’ finances. But fortunes have changed. The Milwaukee Bucks were sold to a group of hedgefund executives for…
