Rolls-Royce Adds Visual Improvements Technological Innovations to Ghost Series II T

he original Ghost Series took Rolls-Royce up to a new level in multiple regards when it debuted in 2009. For one, the design positioned the company as a less-formal brand and, as a result, attracted a new generation of high-achievers and go-getters. Two, the car, now the most popular in the $250,000-plus class, turned into a status symbol for entrepreneurs across the globe. In response, RollsRoyce saw four historic sales records since the Ghost’s launch. Beyond these distinctions, the Ghost, a series balancing dynamism and luxury with a composed design, presented a refined, ambient aesthetic – one equally appropriate for conducting a business meeting and taking a weekend getaway. Rolls-Royce achieved this by creating a simple concept free of complications for the driver and passengers. In April 2014, the company took a new step with the Ghost Series II. The car made its first appearance to North American audiences at the New York International Audio Show, and what audiences saw was a continuation of everything that made the initial Ghost so successful but with re-imagined aspects. To start, the exterior went through an upgrade, with the most noticeable, at a glance, being the less-formal, softer grill, yacht-like flowing lines, and the stronger flank. Specifically, this design re-sculpts the headlights into a new, dynamic shape. As well, you’ll see revised surface treatments to the car’s front, a tapered “wake channel” on the bonnet, and re-sculpted bumpers. For this last feature, the stronger presence is part of the Ghost Series II’s overall greater width and height. Other visual improvements are a bit more subtle. For instance, chrome inserts add a contemporary look, while the “waft line” leans forward just a bit more. In selecting this vehicle, a car owner gets a choice of standard 19-inch and optional 21-inch forged wheels. Similar improvements give the interior a slightly different character. Re-designed front seats now come with thigh supports, while those in the rear have a lounge-type configuration: angled toward each other in order to create a more intimate setting for improved communication. For comfort, the Ghost Series II introduces three-level heating and an optional massage function. It’s not just the seats getting revamped. This series adds chrome around sun visor lights, a new soft-feel dashboard, and dials and clocks that appear like handmade, luxury wrist watches. As well, the natural grain leather now extends to A and C pillars, and more Bespoke customization introduces two more veneers: Paldao and Walnut Burr Crossband. As well, Rolls-Royce changed what you can’t always see: new front and rear struts, new steering gear, adjusted dampers, a thicker steering wheel, and new rear hydraulic axle bearings. Beyond the visuals, the Ghost Series II’s functionality stays ahead with the latest technology, such as Wi-Fi, navigation assistance, and anticipation of unnecessary delays. Rolls-Royce updated the Multimedia Interface and Navigation system, letting users access these through a 10.25-inch high-definition screen, and included the 6 |

Spirit of Ecstasy Rotary Controller. For this last feature, a touch pad, rather than the standard screen, eliminates smudge marks at eye level and further lets users scroll by turning a chrome dial and enter characters by hand in a range of languages. Much like a smart phone, pull and pinch functionality enables you to zoom in for a better view. Media here, too, is enhanced. Users get access to a USB port, iPod and iPad connection, and audio streaming, but what truly sets the Ghost Series II apart is the Bespoke radio, expanded to the car’s new size. The same near-perfect acoustic balance and performance remains intact with 18 individually-tuned speakers, with studio and theater settings. Two bass speakers in the boot, seven spaced in the cabin, and two “exciter” models in the roof create a fully immersive, surround-sound experience. And, at the same time, a highly-sensitive microphone is constantly attuned to exterior ambient noise and adjusts the car’s volume and settings in response. Along these lines, LED lighting technology and Satellite Aided Transmission improve your driving experience. For the former, electronically-controlled reflectors, enhanced by adaptive technology, move in your driving direction with the steering wheel’s motion. Compared to standard lights, these provide greater visual depth and brighter, whiter light to improve driving on dark roads and reduce driver tiredness. As well, the new glare-free technology replaces the older automatic dipping of full-beam headlights. The latter gives the Ghost Series II a new dimension of intuitiveness, letting the car see what’s ahead of the driver. In response, the vehicle selects the most appropriate gear for the conditions ahead, resulting in a smoother experience. ■



The Dromborg | Dreams Written in Stone


he Dromborg is a dream made manifest. The realization of a lifetime of hard work—with a vision. In aincient Nordic, it translates as, “Dreams the size of mountains.”We say it that way because there is only one. Located in the verdant heart of the Ozarks Mountains, this home is a unique legacy property. Built to stand for centuries with four thousand tons of rock—hewn and fitted, stone by stone, as master masons have done since the second century, BC. Inside, solid oak. Solid cherry. Solid walnut. Carved, sculpted, and molded into 13,000 square feet of museum quality construction, built by one of the world’s great lumber barons for his own personal country estate. The Dromborg is a hundred acres worth of forested mountainside privacy. All within minutes of a major university and three Fortune 500 corporate campuses. 8 |

Completed in 2008, the Dromborg’s design aesthetic is inspired by Scottish castles of the 13th century. Classical motifs were also incorporated, as was often the case with historical European designs. The larger statement speaks to contemporary yet timeless values: vision, hard work, and audacious dreams. Distance view overlooking Ozark Mountains with a 300-degree panoramic view and beautifully nested in Northwest Arkansas. Flying in? Have your pilot file a flightplan to KFYV. The Dromborg is located less than a country mile from the 6,100 foot runway at Fayetteville’s Drake Field.

Naples Winter Wine Festival | Top Charity Event in the Nation Since its debut in 2001, the Naples Winter Wine Festival has become one of the most successful, not to mention well-known, charity events of its type in the nation. The 2015 Festival has been announced for January 23rd through the 25th at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, FL. This coming year is expected to attract over forty vintners from across the world and 18 well-known American chefs, and will feature several luxurious items and packages up for auction. Beyond the attractions, what makes the Naples Winter Wine Festival so successful is the amount of money raised over the years -- $123 million to date. Yearly amounts go toward providing financial support to more than 40 nonprofit organizations that benefit about 200,000 children. 2015’s theme of “Imagine the Possibilities” emphasizes making a significant difference in the physical, emotional, and educational lives of the most at-risk and underprivileged children. Along this line, its organizers select one vintner, who has contributed significantly to the Festival in the past, to represent all vintners present. 2015 will feature Marchese Piero Antinori, one of the most prestigious names in Italian wine making. Antinori is best known for Tignanello, Solaia, and Guado al Tasso wines. He has changed how wine is produced in Italy, all while giving more prominence to the Super Tuscan variety. This coming year marks his fifth appearance at the Naples Winter Wine Festival. The other vintners selected represent 15 global wine-producing regions, five countries, and two continents. In addition to the extensive list of vintners, some of the nation’s top chefs will serve food specially paired with the wines represented at the Festival. For 2015, Barbara Lynch, the CEO of Boston’s Barbara 10 |

Lynch Gruppo, was named the Festival’s Chef de Cuisine. Her company includes many of the Northeast’s top dining spots, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, and Menton, a AAA Five-Diamond, Forbes FiveStar, and Relais & Châteaux property. The James Beard Foundation awarded her “Outstanding Restaurateur” four times, and she’s the only female in the U.S. to be selected as a Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef. In addition to the Festival’s weekend activities, Champagne producer, Olivier Krug, of France’s House of Krug, will host a Krug Champagne Tasting Seminar. This first-ever occasion is planned for January 22nd and will feature special guest moderator Antonio Galloni, a wine critic and founder of Vinous Media. There will also be an online auction – the first-ever of this longstanding Festival –that begins on January 12th. Several wines and other exclusive travel and experience items will be up for bidding from that date through January 24th, when the auction closes at 8 p.m. Officially, the Naples Winter Wine Festival begins with Meet the Kids Day on January 23rd. This presentation, lasting from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., allows all attendees to see the life-changing impact the years of donations have had. In the process, you’ll get to know the organizations receiving the proceeds, meet some of the children who have benefitted from these resources and services over the years, and hear their success stories. Afterwards, at one of Naples’ most exclusive country clubs, you’ll be given the first opportunity to meet the acclaimed vintners and taste their wines. On Friday evening, guests will attend intimate vintner dinners at the private homes of NCEF trustees and in private settings throughout


Antinori is best known for Tignanello, Solaia, and Guado al Tasso wines. He has changed how wine is produced in Italy, all while giving more prominence to the Super Tuscan variety.

Naples. A celebrity chef will prepare the meal, while one of the world renowned vintners attending the Festival will pour wine, perfectly matched to the meal. Saturday is at the Imagine the Possibilities auction, considered the Festival’s highlight. 63 total lots featuring elite travel and wine experiences will be auctioned off, including a trip around the world in a private jet, rare collections of some of the world’s most sought-after wines, and limited-edition cars, just to name a few. Lasting from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the pre-auction luncheon takes you through a culinary tour with dishes from the Ritz-Carlton chefs and America’s next “rock stars of wine.” You’ll get to meet the owners and makers of these artisanal facilities, all while tasting their awardwinning wines. In the process, you’ll have a chance to see and eventually bid on the items being auctioned. This year features two vehicles, the 2015 Mercedes SLS AMG GT Final Edition and the Lamborghini Huracán. A special paint scheme, Mystic White II, characterizes the Mercedes.

Top local chefs prepare an arrangement of delicious dishes, while wines are served from an array of large bottles. Guests can dance to live music during the evening, as some of the world’s best wines continue to be poured. A Celebration Brunch on Sunday finishes the Festival.

Krell Illusion Preamplifier Another standout at tech shows, this preamplifier has one of the most innovative designs on the market. Specifically, the power supply is separate from the circuitry, it fits into a subwoofer and satellite speaker arrangement, and it comes with unique crossover features.

Geometric Leather Ankle Boots in Black from Nicholas Kirkwood Make a statement with these architecturally-inspired ankle boots. A 4.5” metal stiletto heel compliments the fully leather body while matching the geometric embellishment on the side. A zipper closure makes it a cinch to put these on, no matter if you’re aiming for an experimental or formal look.

VTrue Studio Headphones Design and sound quality come together with a piece that’s been a highlight of many tech gear shows. Forged aluminum, along with a leather headband and over-ear cups, creates a minimalist design, and Velodyne’s well-known audio technology makes this a must for the discerning music listener. Specifically, sound comes through a 50mm driver tuned to Velodyne’s low-distortion bass reproduction. As well, these headphones can be adapted to many devices. Just use the Apple-compatible, tangle-resistant braided cloth cable, the dual 3.5mm gold converters, or the ¼” plug adapter.

Marilyn Monroe’s The Seven Year Itch dress | $5.6 million Any dress worn by Marilyn Monroe is attractive to collectors. Those she wore in her films especially so. But there’s one that’s more important than the others. The floaty, cream dress she famously wore above the breezy subway grate in The Seven Year Itch. “Isn’t it delicious?” she purred. Husband Joe DiMaggio, who was on set at the time, was not enamoured with the sexualised nature of the scene. He left for a local bar. The dress sold for $5.6 million in 2011 at Profiles In History. No surprise when you consider it’s from one of cinema’s most iconic scenes, and was worn by the industry’s most famous star. The seller was fellow Hollywood actress Debbie Reynolds, who picked up the dress for just $400 at an MGM auction in 1970.

John F Kennedy’s last signature | $38,837 The finest memorabilia has the power to move you. This is the perfect example. John F Kennedy’s last autograph sold for $38,837 at Heritage Auctions in 2009. JFK signed the copy of the Dallas Morning News for a maid at the Texas Hotel on the morning of November 22, 1963. Hours later he was dead. The maid kept it in her possession for the next 45 years. Kennedy’s signature is one of the finest autograph investments. The value of his signed letters has grown by 11.0% per annum since 2000, according to the PFC40 Autograph Index. The finest examples are today worth $12,700.

1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta | $38.1 million The 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta became the most valuable car ever auctioned when it made $38.1 million at Bonhams in August. In doing so it raised the classic car auction record by 28.7% – set by Juan Fangio's Mercedes W196 at $29.6 million in 2013. What made the car such a hit with buyers? Ferrari is the most popular marque with classic car collectors. And 250 GTOs are especially sought after. And when you consider that only 39 were ever built, you have the perfect equation of desirability + rarity. And to think, you could have bought one new for $18,500 in 1962.

LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort

The Crown Jewel of Naples | LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort N

aples is known for having more millionaires per capita than anywhere else in Florida. Within this community on the Gulf of Mexico, LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort stands out as the place to relax and play a few rounds. Considered the “crown jewel” of Southwest Florida, LaPlaya is the only true beachfront boutique resort on the Gulf Coast. Its facilities of putting greens, cabanas, and ballrooms sit near white sandy private beaches and the azure waters of Vanderbilt Bay. The resort has landed on Condé Nast Traveler’s “Gold List” and “Best U.S. Resorts List” for its several distinctive features. Large swimming pools under swaying palm trees near a tiki bar create the feel of a tropical island, while Balinese massages and personal butler service take pampering to the max. Cabanas, situated by cascading rock waterfall pools, offer an intimate atmosphere, as you look out at the stunning surroundings. And if you’re looking to improve your game, the David Leadbetter Golf Academy and the LaPlaya Golf Course benefit a range of skill levels. The cabanas are certainly a highlight of many stays at the resort. Right by the pool, you’ll have a chance to unwind on deep-cushioned reclining seats, while feeling the slight breeze from the structure’s ceiling fan. During the day, take in some rays while sitting back in the poolside chaise lounges. A shaded teak dining table and chairs, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an optional HDTV let you create your own experience – be it watching the game, enjoying a meal, or staying 20 |

connected as you take some time to yourself. Throughout the time you stay in the cabana, the resort’s attendants are on hand for bottled water, cold towels, and delicious sorbet. Much like the standout cabanas, the rooms at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort offer a great view. Seven possible choices, varying in space and location, let you look out – from the balcony or ground level – at the Gulf’s well-known natural features. Resort View and Bay View Rooms, both 600 square feet each, capture such a sight of the Gulf and Vanderbilt Bay, respectively. Pool View rooms, characterized by Mediterranean influences, overlook the resort’s lush landscape of greenery and waterways. You’ll get a full, postcard-perfect view from the Beachfront rooms, located on floors three through eight. As you look out at the beach and the Gulf’s waters, the premium option takes accommodations up a notch with a whirlpool bathtub, pillow top beds, and a furnished private balcony. At the resort, the ground floor rooms, like the Beach House Lanai, are some of the most sought after. This particular room covers 450 square feet and a private terrace. A bit bigger is the Beach Front One Bedroom Suite; 850 square feet is furnished with luxury textiles, organic décor inspired by the Naples landscape, and a PranaSleep mattress.


LaPlaya complements your experience with quality fine dining and rejuvenating spa treatments. When it comes time to grab a meal, BALEEN is the place to be. Considered one of Naples’ best restaurants, it’s spread over indoor and outdoor areas; exclusive beach fire pits with BALEEN cocktails enhance what could be an ordinary evening looking at the ocean and the stars. While menus reflect standard offerings, as well as holiday dishes, brunch, dessert, and prix fixe selections, the bar is truly a standout aspect, winning Wine Spectator’s Best Awards of Excellence from 2011 to 2014. Looking for something a bit less formal? The Tiki Bar combines quality drinks with gourmet food, or for a more intimate atmosphere, order room service. But relaxation isn’t simply about finding a pleasant spot and winding down; getting fully refreshed starts with rejuvenation. Massages and facials often come to mind – and you’ll find these and more treatments at the SpaTerre. This 4,500 square foot facility, a beachfront boutique spa, begins

with a foundation of standard treatments – body wraps, a range of facials, Swedish, deep tissue, and sports massages, for instance – and introduces many new therapies. Personal rooms with private balconies and showers become the tranquil setting for loosening up or trying something new: get a makeup application, depilation, wrinkle treatment, collagen induction therapy, Thai herbal therapy, Balinese massages, or hot stones from a fairly extensive menu. Along with feeling the tension leave your muscles, you’ll likely want to stay in shape. The Fitness Center’s perfect in this regards. Stop by during your trip to burn a few calories and improve your abs with machines and classes geared toward cardio, strength training, and flexibility. Being at a resort, you’ll want to explore and stay active. Beyond the facilities, the grounds present opportunities for water activities; grab a kayak, see the Gulf from above while parasailing, or go on a fishing charter. As well, Naples features multiple attractions you’ll certainly have to see. Dine at the Mercato Shops, browse Fifth Avenue
