Need to cruise in style, but with celebrity-like security? Check out the Armor Horse Vault XXL ($150,000 and up). This beastly, Brinks-like armored limousine is built using UL-rated thermal & composite ballistic panels and bullet-resistant windows, and offers security features like dual emergency escape hatches that double as skylights, and dual emergency gun ports for fending off zombies attackers. Of course, it's still a limo, so it also offers the appropriate luxuries, including seating for up to 25 people, an L-shaped wet bar, a variety of LCD screens, a powerful stereo system, and even a retractable, neon-lit "entertainment" pole.

If you're going to go racing down the side of a hill on a bicycle, you'd better make sure it's up to the task. The Mongoose Boot'R ($3,000) certainly qualifies, with features like a new FreeDrive downhill frame offering 210mm of rear wheel travel and a 150mm Maxle dropout, Kenda Excavator downhill tires, Avid Code 5 front and rear brakes, a custom Mongoose SDG Bel Air I-Beam saddle, Funn melt forged pedals, and Mongoose Lock on grips.
A private island is one of the most popular purchases among the world's über-rich, but unfortunately they tend to be stationary. Wally and Hermès teamed up to solve this problem, and the Wally Hermès WHY Yacht ($TBA) is the result. This floating island offers a host of unusual, elegant features such as a 200 square meter master suit with its own 25 meter-wide terrace, five guest suites, a 30 meter "beach" on the ocean-accessible stern, a screening room, music room, open dining room, and a 25m pool around the helipad, as well as a host of green features, including 900 square meters of solar panels, and a diesel-electric propulsion system that, in conjunction with the unique design, saves up to 200 tons of diesel per year.

You know two things when you hear a golf cart is built at the Valmet Automotive factory in Finland (where they make the Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster): 1) It's going to be awesome, and 2) It's going to be awesomely expensive. The Garia Golf Cart ($17,500) is definitely both. Designed by Danish designer Anders Lynge, this sexy fairway flyer sports double wishbone front suspension, a built-in refrigerator, hand-stitched seats, hydraulic brakes on all four wheels (with discs in the front and drums at the rear), and custom paint of your choice.
Tear up the powder this winter aboard a Polaris Rush ($TBA). Packing Polaris' well-received 600 Liberty engine, the Rush boasts a stronger, stiffer chassis that allows for more precise control and less ski lifting, a progressive-rate rear suspension to prevent bottoming out on big bumps (or jumps), and true rider-active control, letting the you move your body weight forward to help with cornering or slide back on the seat for more grip when accelerating. It might have a more steep learning curve than your average snowmobile, but once you get the hang of it, it'll be well worth it.
