It might be labeled as a toy, but we sure wouldn't mind kicking around town in the Audi Auto Union Type C E-Tron Study ($TBA). Inspired by Audi's classic racers and based on a limited-edition pedal car model, the rear wheel-drive Type C is powered by a small electric motor and a lithium-ion battery that propels one human — up to 5' 11" — at speeds of up to 18 mph, and as far as 15 miles. Sure, it's not a speedster by any means, but it's a much sportier way to get around the island than that golf cart you've been driving.
Jetpacks have been a pipe dream for many of us ever since we first watched Thunderball, but the expense, heat, weight, and potential for disaster have kept us grounded. Now the well-heeled among us can experience this unique form of flight with minimal risk aboard the Jetlev Flyer ($99,500). This crazy, water-powered backpack uses a 250hp motor and fuel tank at the water's surface to send gallons of the wet stuff up to the seat, where it's blasted back down to the ground, providing a maximum top speed of 22 mph and a maximum height of 28 feet, limited by the hose. All without the need to watch for Goombas.
Airstream continues its trend of partnering with outside companies — like Design Within Reach, Victorinox, and Nissan — with the Eddie Bauer Airstream ($74,000). The 25-foot trailer features classic Airstream outer styling, a queen-size bed with an Eddie Bauer Goose Down duvet, pillows, and throw, maple and soapstone laminates, quilted fabrics, and stain-resistant Sunbrella upholstery on the interior, an oversized hatch for loading and unloading gear like bikes and kayaks, and a generous side awning. Just the thing you need to escape from the ordinary this spring.
