BMW Rolls BR710 turbofan on GV meets BMW Rolls.
You can buy the flagship Lexus LS460-a fine blend of engineering, craftsmanship and performance-for about $80,000. How can a Rolls-Royce Phantom possibly be good enough to justify costing more than four times as much? That's one question I pondered as a Rolls representative handed me the key to a $353,000 Phantom.

The Homestead is “like a cruise ship in the mountains.”
Driving past bright green fields adorned with lazy dairy cows along Virginia's Route 220, you get the sense that you're entering a world where you can completely unplug yourself from the nine-to-five grind. You are-but you don't necessarily have to unplug all the way.

Think you've caught some spirited fish before? Think again. Consider the Pacific sailfish. On a fly. Not a real fly, of course-or more precisely, a whimsy of fluff on a hook posing as a natural insect-but rather a 10-inch-long gob of chicken feathers dyed hot pink and lashed to a miniature harpoon.
