Beyond 3000 rpm, the GT roars like a bear that took a large-caliber bullet to
The best thing that could have happened to Rolls-Royce and Bentley did happen about a decade ago, when Vickers offloaded these once-revered but faded brands to BMW and VW, respectively. Now a Roller is a Roller again, a shamelessly magnificent execution of automotive opulence and serenity.

Headed for Hawaii? A specially outfitted Gulfstream G450 can take you there i
While booking a stay in a luxury Hawaiian hotel isn't hard, finding one that will fly you there on a private jet might be. The Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui and the Royal Kona Resort on the Big Island offer to do just that, via a new service called POSH Private Jet Holidays.

About 32,000 people visited last year's National Business Aviation Associatio

"All of Croatia is beautiful," Slobodan Vrdoljak corrected me jovially. He is the man to contact for people flying by private jet to Zadar, on the country's Dalmatian coast. (See "Zadar Airport," on page 38.) Having only recently arrived here, we were lounging with him in the airport coffee shop.

A little after 10 p.m. one night last March, I was hosing down my waders outside the drying room at Terra del Fuego's elegant Maria Behety Lodge when Brian Yamamoto came rolling in. Yamamoto, a dentist from Fairbanks, carried his 15-foot Snowbee spey rod and sported a smile as wide as the Argentine pampas.

Many places make the dubious claim of being the "sport-fishing capital" of this or that species of game fish, but for trophy rainbow trout there's an obvious champion with no competitor: Alaska. And no billboards making the proclamation are required. Anyway, there aren't many roads where you're going-mostly just paths through the alders made by the largest brown bears on Earth.
