The Last Drop Dunny by Sket And Huck Gee


01 04

While both Sket and Huck Gee have stellar reputations for their high-end custom editions, they’ve never collaborated on a custom Dunny, well until now.  A decade of work has lead to their first collaboration – The Last Drop Dunny. Last Drop is a seductively dangerous concoction, blending Huck’s Skullhead character with Sket’s signature bottle aesthetic from his long-running Dunny condiment series.  With a mix of clear and purple translucent materials and tight graphics, this poisonous piece has quite the visual sting.  As you’d expect from Huck and Sket, they’ve gone all out on the details including a real cork stopper and a laser etched cherry wood tag.  Additionally, the signed/numbered  8″ Dunny comes with a  custom screen printed shot glass, and a velour traveling bag.

McLaren 12C Spider Challenges a Snowboarder


McLaren-12C-Spider-Colorado

To mark its official launch in the US, the McLaren 12C Spider took to the notoriously dangerous Loveland Pass in Colorado to demonstrate its supercar credentials and to challenge X-Games professional snowboarder, Chanelle Sladics. In a specially made video to accompany the feat, Pikes Peak International overall record-holder and 2008 Drifting World Champion Rhys Millen races Sladics downhill in the convertible supercar, managing to keep its 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine in check through descending hairpin turns along roads caked in snow and ice. At 11,990 feet (3,655 m) above sea level, Loveland is the highest mountain pass in the world that stays open during the winter months and has a reputation as being one of the most treacherous stretches of road in the US. But, if the video is to be believed, somehow Millen not only keeps the car under control, he also manages to beat eight-time X-Games competitor Sladics to the bottom of the hill, despite her taking the most direct route.
