The world's most iconic scooter is getting a makeover. The 2008 Vespa S ($4100) is a retro-forward version of the Vespino scooters of the '60s and '70's, featuring a 150cc four-stroke engine, incredible fuel mileage, an advanced front disc/rear drum braking system, light alloy rims (11" in the front and 10" in the rear), an under-seat storage compartment, and a 2.3 gallon gas tank. Great looks, eco-friendly performance, and retro style — a perfect combination.
Forget that business with the island and the freighter — bring the island to you with the WallyIsland ($TBA). Like a floating fortress straight out of a Bond movie, the 325-foot WallyIsland offers a customizable main deck that can house tennis courts, a lush green oasis, a deep swimming pool, a heliport, and more. It can run along at a clip of up to 17.5 knots, can hold up to 24 guests (in addition to 40 crew members), offers a library, cinema, spa, and fitness area, and comes with two 45' WallyPowers for those times when you just have to head for shore.

Tear up the trails in the hardcore 2008 Polaris Ranger RZR (starting at $10,300). With 800cc's of power, this two-seater side by side powerhouse has a top speed of 55 mph. The RZR's rear-mounted engine gives a lower center of gravity for better handling, while the roll cage will protect your frail body better than any ATV out there. The RZR's independent rear suspension and 10-inches of ground clearance make the ride smooth, even in Upper Tellico.
