Italian stallion: 2023 Ferrari Purosangue SUV
With four doors and a formidable V12 under its long bonnet, Ferrari’s first ever SUV is a true Italian thoroughbred. Coincidentally, that’s actually what ‘Purosangue’ means in the fiery language — and, thanks to its colossal 6.5-litre naturally aspirated engine, this stallion generates the power of 715 horses.

Wake up: The Morning Machine
Imagine stripping down your existing pod coffee machine and giving it up a tune-up. That’s essentially the thinking behind ‘The Morning Machine’, a connected coffee maker that allows you to precisely and exactly extract the best flavours and maximum richness from every pod. The best part? The ‘Morning Marketplace’ stocks a constantly-growing collection of capsules from renowned destinations and institutions from all over the world.

Soft touch: Crockett & Jones ‘Chiltern’ Chukka Boots
The British manufacturer is known for its heavy-duty, strongly-soled shoes — and this ‘Chiltern’ style has stepped it up once more for the new season, introducing a new ‘slate’ colour. Retaining the same soft Repello suede and tough Dainite rubber soles, this new versatile version is your go-to winter boot.

Shifting gears: Husqvarna Mountain Cross MC6 E-Bike
Once Steve McQueen’s favoured motorcycle manufacturer, Husqvarna has sped up to date and into the future with a new e-bike. The ‘MC6’ has a carbon fibre frame, an independent Shimano ‘EP8’ motor and a seating position that stations its rider in a more central, deeper position for easier handling and smoother riding.

Pitch camp: Porsche ‘Tequipment’ Roof Tent
With an exclusively designed hardcase, this Porsche-made tent can be fitted to the roof of almost any of the manufacturer’s models; from the Macan and the Cayenne, to the Panamera and the Taycan. Once erected, the two-person design features a high-density polyfoam mattress, breathable cotton walls and water-resistant zips.

Raise a glass: Green Man ‘Wildwood’ Gin
The first gin ever to be packaged in an eco-friendly cardboard bottle, ‘Wildwood’ from Green Man is as sustainable as spirits come. And it’s sufficiently ‘forest-y’ on the palate; with notes of fresh pine, birch leaf and fir, which give way to a herbal mid-palate of rose hips with apple and a woody, rooty finish.

Off the record: ’Bond 25’ by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the James Bond franchise, Decca Records has released an album featuring all 25 Bond themes, expertly reimagined for the first time and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Keep your ears pricked for some cracking trumpet work on ‘Live And Let Die’.

Wake up: Grind One Coffee Machine
Hitting that high-shine sweet spot between simplicity and sophistication, this chrome coffee machine from Grind will be your weekday worktop salvation. It may use Nespresso pods, but the brand’s own compostable creations will deliver a fine cup of coffee (we’d recommend the strong, rich ‘Editions (India)’ pods).

Pick up speed: 2023 Pagani Utopia Coupe
Celebrating 30 years in the high-speed supercar game, Pagani’s latest model has made its swift, shapely entrance. The ‘Utopia’ features similar styling cues to the outgoing Huayra — including such retro touches as leather buckles along the panel gaps and real needle gauges on the dashboard.

Wrap up: Aubin ‘Union’ Wax Jacket
As geared up for an autumnal country walk as it is for a cold weather commute, this waxed cotton jacket from Aubin is fitted with bellows pockets, hardy poppers and a contrasting fleece collar. We particularly like those ergonomic chest pockets; perfect for keeping cosy when the frost rolls in.
