BMW's sporty flagship hybrid is getting a few upgrades — and an all-new body style. The BMW i8 Roadster uses a plug-in hybrid powertrain similar to the prior hardtop, only updated with more capacity, power, and range. Horsepower is up 12, pure-electric range is now 33 miles, and it can now hit 65 mph without using the petrol motor, up from a paltry 43 in the prior model. Its power soft-top can raise or lower in under 16 seconds and stows away in a storage area occupied by the rear seats in the coupe. Speaking of which, it also receives the performance upgrades, as well as new interior and wheel options, and coupe-specific badging.
Located on a three-hundred-year-old lava flow, the Outside House is open-area living at its best. The dwelling is comprised of two pavilions. Clad in a mixture of western red cedar and reflective film, the enclosed volume houses a bedroom. A large sliding window frames in views of the rising sun. The outdoor structure is free of walls and partitions, allowing it to be immersed in the Maui landscape. The slanted roof shelters a kitchen, concealed shower, and a deck where glimpses of the Pacific Ocean and the nearby island of Kahoolawe can be seen.

Back in the 1960s, Hamilton was one of several companies to build field watches for the US Department of Defense, under the spec MIL-W-3818B. That same design is reborn in the Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Watch.

It's powered by a manually-wound mechanical movement, offers 5 ATM of water resistance, and has vintage-toned lume. Finished with a green NATO strap with brown leather trim, and available worldwide beginning in January.

The body is wrapped in GMC graphics with LED lights in the wheel wells and under the chassis. The All Mountain concept shows just how far you can take GMC's trucks.

Designed by Marcel Breuer as a personal residence, his Connecticut House is the embodiment of his modernist vision. The home was built in 1951 but has recently welcomed a new addition.

Like nearly all mid-century dwellings, glazing is ever present throughout the home. This design feature is most prominent in the main living area and the cantilevered master bedroom, showcasing the swimming pool and surrounding acreage.
