The Man Behind the Machine
The 16 essentials for driving 100 MPH
You wouldn’t buy a mansion and furnish it with IKEA.
You wouldn’t wear Tevas on your yacht.
So if and when you ever buy a supercar (whether it’s a speedster named “Beast,” a 3D-printed Olds or a set of wheels specifically designed for said yacht), remember also to outfit your person accordingly.
Herein: 16 road essentials to help you do just that, because while internal combustion is the exquisite car owner’s superior accessory, the things he keeps inside of it — including himself — should be equally attractive.
If there’s a bite in the air or you have a handsomely worn vintage steering wheel, go for gloves. If this isn’t the case — and you’re not warming up your engine for Le Mans — exercise some restraint.
Stay warm out there — because if the top can go down, it most certainly will.
Keep It Together
The Navigator Glove Box Kit from Ghurka stows your personal effects in style. A hard case with a soft calfskin cover opens to unleash small organizational compartments outfitted with an LED flashlight, notepad, tire gauge holder and ore.
That rule about drop tops? Applies here as well.
For time trials, obviously.
Eyes on the Road
Keep two pairs in the glovebox. One for you, one for your passenger. She gets first choice.
