Behold: the Draper from Land Ark – a high end mobile home complete with boot room, kitchen, utility, full sized shower room, various cleverly integrated nooks, cubbies, benches, wardrobes and a cosy sleeping loft – all finished in whitewashed pine. There’s also a fold-out hardwood deck accessed through sliding patio doors.

Yours for just over €128,000 (+ shipping).

Yes it does look like bit like a Jawa Sandcrawler.


The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV – an all electric (750bhp with a 310km range) concept that will almost certainly make it to production.

Currently launching at Auto China 2018, the silhouette trades the regular SUV hatchback for a sedan-like notch and split rear window.

Inside, perched on white leather upholstery with rose gold accents, well-heeled rear seat passengers can enjoy tea or coffee from the central console.

Or in their lap, on certain stretches of Cavan/North Meath.


Behold: the the 377-foot Oceanco Tuhura superyacht – inspired by the design of hollowed-out Polynesian canoes but fitted out in luxurious teak, gunmetal, and bronze with a hybrid Azipod CRP propulsion system capable of 18 knots.

Price on application.
