…Ken Block gives Gymkhana the Hot For Words treatment?

Just one year ago, Ken Block debuted what is still one of the most amazing pieces of automotive art ever created: Gymkhana Practice.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the video, DC Shoes teamed up with YouTube sensation Marina from Hot For Words to explain Gymkhana, and while it lacks the tire smoke of the first video, it does make up for it with gratuitous eye candy:

…Victorinox and Airstream have teamed up?

Victorinox Airstream

Apparently everyone is getting into the Airstream business, as Victorinox joins Mini as the latest company to introduce a custom trailer.

Built to celebrate their 125th anniversary, the Victorinox Airstream will feature a spruced up interior and a collection of Swiss Army products, including watches, flashlights, umbrellas, multi-tools, duffel bags and knife blocks.

…The Novitech TuLesto is a self-made supercar?

Novitech TuLesto

Novitec is known for making bad beasts out of Italian stallions, but now they’ve set their sights a little higher, and intend on releasing a semi-custom car (or eleven) of their very own to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

Called the TuLesto, it’s based loosely on the Ferrari F430, though just about everything on the car has been poked and prodded into a new, and some would argue sexier shape.

Two superchargers give the carbon fiber creation a healthy 777 horsepower out of the 4.4-liter V8, and 60 happens 3.4 seconds after pressing the go pedal on the way to a top speed of more than 217 mph.

Happy birthday indeed!

…Diesel is making XXX SFW?

Diesel SFW XXX

Diesel is celebrating their 30th Anniversary with a bang by throwing 17 parties in 24 hours in places like Tokyo, Beijing, Dubai, Athens, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Milan, Munich, Paris, Oslo, Stockholm, Zurich, London, Sau Paulo and New York.

Diesel XXX Party

The line up includes Mark Ronson, N*E*R*D, M.I.A., David Holmes, Chaka Khan, New Young Pony Club, and more.

However, regardless of how much fun the parties are, the best part of their anniversary will still be the invitation!

By taking ‘70s porn clips and (kinda) editing out the naughty parts, they created Diesel XXX, a semi-SFW video that shows you all the fun you’ll be having if you come to their party:

Just don’t forget to bring a favor!

…It’s Movie Monday: A Gathering of Elephants?

Eames Elephant

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Charles Eames’ birth, the Vitra Design Museum and the Eames Office teamed up to produce a limited edition run of the elephant that Charles and Ray Eames designed in 1945, but never put into production.

The Eames are famous for their chair, the Eames Lounge Chair, which is said to be the breakthrough design for one of the most influential design teams of the twentieth century.

The elephant features the swooping wood look that made the chair so famous, and will undoubtedly be highly sought after by the hoards of Eames collectors.
