The first thing you'll notice about the Mercedes-AMG GT R is its color. Painted a special "AMG green hell magno", it's a nod to the product's development on the "Green Hell" of the Nurburgring, itself a harbinger of the car's singular goal: on-track performance. It's powered by a handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 Biturbo producing 577 hp, paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission for a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 race car is an inspiration for many other features, including the active air management system that maximizes aerodynamics, active rear-wheel steering, a nine-way adjustable traction control system, lightweight construction that incorporates aluminum and carbon, and lightweight forged wheels equipped with cup tires. Still, it's completely road legal, so you won't need a hauler to get it to and from the track.
Combining old school craftsmanship with a strong devotion to the environment, Arbor Groundswell Skateboards bring the sea to dry land with a series of green boards. Handmade from seven plies of sustainably grown maple and topped with a premium wood top sheet, the deck is finished with eco friendly water-based sealers and a recycled crushed glass spray-on grip. Each piece features a map of a different major coastline from around the globe, created by an Arbor artist. Available in six different shapes ranging from mini-cruisers to longboards, every board comes complete with Sucrose Initiative Wheels, Double Shield ABEC 5 bearings, and Paris or Gullwing Trucks. Emphasizing on green, a portion of every sale helps to protect and restore the Koa forests of Hawaii.
