Editor’s Picks: Lamborghini Motor Yacht, Aluminium Turntable and Fire Pit

From Aston Martin’s latest luxurious hypercar to the latest non-alcoholic spirit from CleanCo, this is what we want this week…

Can you feel the heat? The hot, humid, hellfire level of heat? It’s enough to drive a man mad. Or, at the very least, drive him to light linen shirts and expensive air conditioning units. Here at Gentleman’s Journal, we’ve been boiling. But we’ve also been cooking up some fun ways to tackle the temperature.

We’ve been switching off our desk fans and taking spins in supercars instead — or wild, wind-in-our-hair powerboats. We’ve been mixing refreshing no-lo cocktails with lunch. We’ve even just slipped on some less-oppressive, summer-ready accessories, from sunglasses to sports watches. So check out this week’s Editor’s Picks below; the coolest ways to stay cool this summer…

Power up: Aston Martin Valhalla

The British carmaker is shifting gears. In its latest electrifying advancement, Aston has unveiled the production model of the Valhalla hybrid hypercar. Based on the Formula 1-influenced Valkyrie, this mean-looking motor has a bespoke 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, 950 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of just 2.5 seconds.

Spinning around: Naim Solstice Special Edition Turntable

Despite sounding out the richest, bassiest tones and tunes for almost 50 years, this is the first time Salisbury-based audio brand Naim has ever created a turntable. The Solstice Special Edition is limited to 500 units; and features a polished aluminium platter, self-calibrating motor drive system and sharp, brutalist design.

Light up: Solo Stove Fire Pit

You may not need it during the heatwave, but this innovative fire pit from Solo Stove will facilitate your al fresco activities long into autumn. With its signature ‘360 Airflow’ design, the extra large ‘Yukon’ model measures over two feet in diameter — and can stoke up a smoke-free, roaring fire in mere minutes. 

Bottoms up: CleanCo 'Clean T'

With this latest release, CleanCo has cemented its place in the intoxicating alcohol-free industry. With flavours of sweet melon, subtle fruit and oak — as well as welcome hints of olive — this take on tequila packs a flavourful punch; but without the risk of a hangover. Margaritas at the ready gents, because this is an agave-infused delight.

Throw shade: The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear Vicuna Sunglasses

If you hadn’t noticed, we’re experiencing something of a heatwave. And, with all this sun-stoked summer weather, a pair of reliable sunglasses are in order. Thankfully, no frames are as functional (or fashionable) as this delicately dashing ‘Vicuna’ design from The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear. Those rays don’t stand a chance.

Hot desk: Pineider Leather Travel Desk Set

Earlier this week, we explored every island James Bond ever visited — and discovered that Ian Fleming wrote every 007 adventure from his summer estate in Jamaica. The well-travelled wordsmith, then, would no doubt have approved of this leather-trimmed travel desk set from Pineider; containing dip pen, bound notebook and watermarked writing paper.

Buckle up: Bamford Mayfair Sport in Aqua

Affordable, reliable and exceedingly fun, Bamford’s Mayfair Sport comes in a whole host of bright, exciting colours. But the best for summer is perhaps this ‘Aqua’ shade; a seafaring spin on a sports watch with 100 metres of water resistance, durable rubber strap and hands so luminous that even the sunniest sun won’t stand in your time-telling way.

Hell for leather: Tod’s Gommino Driving Shoes in Suede

Like the bright blue Bamford watch above, these suede loafers are the colour of the summer sky. From Tod’s, they’re slip-on road-trip fuel; a hand-stitched, hot-stamped call for automotive adventure — complete with the Italian brand’s iconic rubber pebble outsole. The perfect uniform for a homespun, high-octane summer staycation.
