rebel, rebel

Jeremy Renner has climbed to the top of the Hollywood hierarchy, with roles in films like The Hurt Locker, The Town, and the Avengers and Mission: Impossible franchises. In his downtime, the actor can be found cruising the streets in style on one of his motorcycles. For more information, see page 82. JEREMY RENNER: SARAH DUNN/CONTOUR BY GETTY IMAGES.

seeing red

For even the finest watchmakers, innovation can be limited by the traditional materials used. So when Hublot wanted to push its horological designs, it decided to try something entirely new: timepieces made from incredibly durable ceramics, produced in bright, vibrant colors, like the recently released Big Bang Unico Red Magic. The case and bezel are echoed in the red skeleton dial, flange, and indexes, and the 72-hour power reserve for its self-winding chronograph flyback movement makes this piece as impressive for its engineering as for its design. With a price tag of $26,200 for this limited edition (only 500 units were made), you truly are getting big bang for your buck. For years, the horological masters at Parmigiani Fleurier have partnered with supercar manufacturer Bugatti to create stunning watches inspired by…

iron man’s new ride

We’ve known for a while that actor Robert Downey Jr. has fantastic taste in cars: His garage is home to an eclectic array of automobiles, from a stylish, sophisticated Mercedes-Benz SL Pagoda to a fun and economical Volkswagen Golf GTI. But we were blown away when we saw his newest toy, a totally custom 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 he commissioned from Wisconsin-based shop SpeedKore Performance Group. Chopping up a first-generation Mustang Boss 302, now a coveted collectors’ piece, took serious guts. The Boss 302 was Ford’s response to Chevrolet’s then-new Camaro Z/28, which at the time dominated the Sports Car Club of America’s Trans-Am racing series. Ford produced a very limited number over two model years, ’69 and ’70, developing its performance Mustang around a high-output engine: a stout 302-cubic-inch…

need for speed

Ever since Christian von Koenigsegg founded his eponymous automotive company back in 1994, the brand has been on the frontier of supercar design and performance. So when the Koenigsegg Agera RS appeared to set a new land-speed record last November at a face-melting 277.87 mph, a full 10 mph faster than the current record holder, one would figure the feat was the boss’s idea. Instead, it was an enthusiastic client who proposed the speed test, offering to lend his car for the challenge on a temporarily closed section of highway in Nevada. It didn’t take long for von Koenigsegg to agree. The Agera RS’s performance has sparked controversy, upended the record books, and provided valuable data and insights for the Koenigsegg team as they develop their next game-changing supercar. The Agera…

preach for the stars

In an alternate universe, Dominic Cooper might not be an actor. In fact, he almost didn’t make it into an acting program at all. “It’s very lucky that I got in, because I left it up to the very last minute,” he remembers of his audition to the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art. “I think there was only one drama school in London left taking applications.” Cooper, who had been a traditional university student, had a change of heart and decided to pursue the performing arts. And it’s a good thing he did: The 40-year-old is currently starring in the third season of AMC’s comic book adaptation Preacher, a series that’s equal parts thriller, action, horror, and dark comedy. While Cooper had a backup plan in case acting didn’t…

cocktails at 35,000 feet

Soaring through the sky somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, perhaps an hour after leaving Hong Kong on a flight to Los Angeles, a loaded, legit cocktail cart comes rolling out for service. This is about as far from the standard in-flight routine—where you’re grateful to keep the whole can of soda to refill your plastic cup with bottom-shelf whiskey and Coke—as you can get. This is luxe in-flight drinking, with signature cocktails ready to be mixed up at your beckoning. You can partake of quality spirits such as Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve scotch whisky and Hine Rare VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac, or prestigious wine vintages and varietals, served in real glassware. When it comes to drinking in style while soaring above the clouds, your best bet is choosing the right…
