Pirelli – Lamborghini Urus Performante

THE FIRST PIRELLI P ZERO TROFEO R FOR SUVs IS BORN WITH A RECORD FOR THE LAMBORGHINI URUS PERFORMANTE

The latest custom tire for the newest Lamborghini joins the six tires already produced by Pirelli for the Urus

The Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R has set a new benchmark, conquering the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on the Lamborghini Urus Performante in record time for the category. This same tire was chosen by Lamborghini as the original equipment for the newest version of its super SUV.

From the start, the Urus was already homologated with six variants of Pirelli tires: P Zero tires in 21, 22, and 23 inches, designed to ensure high performance on the road; 22-inch P Zero Corsa covers for fun on the track; as well as 21-inch Scorpion Zero All Season and 22-inch Scorpion Winter equipment to drive on any terrain and in low temperatures. Joining them is now the 22-inch P Zero Trofeo R: the most performance-oriented Pirelli tire of all, specifically intended for the track but also approved for the road.

It marks the very first time that Pirelli has adapted a P Zero Trofeo R for the needs of an SUV: this latest evolution tire for the Lamborghini Urus Performante is able to offer high performance in a wider range of conditions and temperatures than the standard P Zero Trofeo R. The new tire is also capable of conquering some of the most famous roads in motorsport, such as the epic Pikes Peak Hill Climb course in Colorado. With multiple hill climb champion and Pirelli test driver Simone Faggioli behind the wheel, the Performante recorded a time of 10m32.064s: beating the previous class record of 10m49.902s, set in 2018.

Like all Lamborghini tires, this particular P Zero Trofeo R was born out of the close collaboration between Pirelli and Lamborghini, which dates back to 1963. The technological partnership that binds the two companies is based on the ‘Perfect Fit’ philosophy: a strategy through which Pirelli develops bespoke tires for each car made by the Premium and Prestige manufacturers it collaborates with. All Lamborghinis can be fitted with Pirelli tires created for the specific features of each model, both as original equipment and on the aftermarket. Pirelli and Lamborghini also have a shared history in competition that goes back more than 30 years: from the debut of the Scorpion for the LM002 that contested the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1988, to the current GT World Challenge Europe: exclusively supplied by Pirelli with Lamborghini among the leading teams.

STARLIGHT HEADLINER

ROLLS-ROYCE

The very first iteration of the Rolls-Royce Starlight Headliner was developed in 2006. Equipped with 800 stars, the innovation was in response to who requested a sift dispersed lighting environment in his Rolls-Royce Phantom due to a sensitivity to light. The Bespoke Collective of designers, engineers, and craftspeople worked relentlessly to develop this technology, extending it to the entire length of the roof and varying the intensity of light emitted by each star to reflect the night sky.

Each star is lit by a single strand of fiber optic cable, hand threaded and cut at a unique angle, and lit by up to six powerful compact light canons. The constellation of each Starlight Headliner can be unique to the owner representing an important point in the timeline of their personal story. The typical headliner takes nine hours to craft, but a personalized pattern needs its own template, which can take as long as a week to complete. Two Rolls-Royce craftspeople work in tandem with this extraordinary feature. It’s the perfect marriage of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary technology.

First, the leather is perforated with 1,400 to 1,600 holes, each carefully counted. Fiber optic threads, which are hand-trimmed at different angles to achieve a twinkling effect, are set into these holes by hand. The craftsperson then ensures that the fibers are perfectly seated on the visible leather surface.

The Starlight Headliner can take on any personalized aesthetic, depicting constellations exactly as they were on any day in modern history. The work of art can feature Bespoke colours, graphics, shooting stars, and even illuminated wood veneer. One owner requested that the lights be configured in the shape of his coat of arms, and another asked for the configuration to represent the Ursa Major and Minor constellations. While for another customer, the Rolls-Royce monogram was created to illuminate separately from the rest of the stars.

The Bespoke designers were once posed with the query: ‘Could all this be accomplished by a robot? Probably, but it’s not. Instead, Rolls-Royce hires detail-obsessed individuals from specialty areas, including textile and technology. The result is a different take on heavenly creationism that’s always unique and personal.”

While it began as a Bespoke feature, nearly every Rolls-Royce Motor Car today features a Starlight Headliner. A Bespoke signature that has become as important as the Rolls-Royce “RR” monogram or the “Pantheon Grill.’ It is available in all members of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars family.

TYLER HENRI GELB

CREATING EXCLUSIVITY

Tyler Gelb, who graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Economics, worked as a financial analyst for the multinational company Sony between 2010 and 2011. In 2019, to assemble the most exclusive luxury eyewear collection available in the world, the Monaco Series, Tyler became the founder and designer of his international brand, T HENRI, which specializes in limited-batch collectible eyewear productions handmade in Sabae, Japan. 

By keeping the key brand message “Handmade and done the old-fashioned way” in mind, T HENRI commits to creating heritage pieces through sustainable materials. The company currently presents in 15 countries and has gained recognition with the American magazine Forbes. Meanwhile, the excellent marketing team has made the brand successful in different parts of the United States and the world, such as the Netherlands or Liverpool (UK).

Listen to Tyler Gelb’s full conversation with Vaughn on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

In 2020, during the pandemic caused by the coronavirus disease, Tyler decided to further accelerate the brand growth by designing something more exclusive than his competitors, especially to take advantage of the Caviar model, which is priced at almost 2K today. This unique collection includes three models: CorsaHydra, and Evo. One of the most notable designs of the collection is the adjustable nose pads which are made in premium quality minerals and could make users feel comfortable by adapting to the size of different noses. The sales that Tyler achieves with this product are high and very successful. 

Tyler adds that he wants to continue to maintain “a unique look that’s hard to come by about our product.” The designer is now creating a kind of high-end line. He and his team will start launching and photographing their campaigns with their grand premiere in September of 14 new models. These beta-titanium made frames are featured with aerodynamic characteristics from those high-performance cars. They are plated in various shades with 18-karat white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. At the same time, to make the designs ergonomic, Tyler adds that the collections of T HENRI are returning to the colors radar blue and GO yellow as these tones give an exquisite and attractive result. The concept that he wants to carry forward with future productions would be limited to 99th percentile color combinations which would keep the products distinct. 

“Cars and watches are one of the biggest inspirations for me,” Tyler says. As a big fan of cars, Tyler is always galvanized by car brands such as Rolls-Royce for small accessories and Lamborghini for an attractive design. After being inspired by the world’s most talented independent brands, Tyler has created a new limitless eyewear collection, Continental, set in a boxy British Grand Tourer adapted on a high-speed, long-distance circuit. Each setting is electroplated with 1 micron of 18 karat gold, which produces a refined, exclusive, and polished shine.

As an eco and user-friendly brand, T HENRI takes the overall environmental impact and usability under consideration during the manufacturing process. The frames will always be kept as “sort of an organic look rich with color,” with being made in hypoallergenic cotton for human skin. 

Tyler mentions that the 2023 collection is already finished and will start with the 2024 one soon. By utilizing titanium as the new material for future collections, He maintains the idea that he is working on is way ahead to ensure all the designs are done right, as well as control material cost. 

LUXURY EXCLUSIVITY

Tyler’s concept as an entrepreneur is to “further differentiate our product”. Although art and design have a lot in common for him, both concepts have aesthetic purposes and contain the power to distinguish him from other brands. To preserve the exclusivity of the brand, Tyler made each limited production has only 50 pieces per style, and the color combination is laser-bonded and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity with the designated production number. Tyler emphasizes that those exclusive pieces are gone and will never be produced again once a color combination is sold out.

As the launch of the new eyewear campaign approaches in September, T HENRI aims to start including a list of celebrities in their eyewear content, as the brand label. 

The company president’s Philosophy is to “believe in yourself” and be risky because “the risk you are taking is on yourself, you have much more control, so I have been able to be riskier.” Tyler states that “I assume and am able to control it and mitigate it instead of putting it in someone else’s hands. It’s a beautiful thing once it reaches a tipping point, but you just have to endure it until you get there.”

The collection that T HENRI represents is the pinnacle of refined luxury and innovative construction practices.

Four Things to Keep in Mind While Buying a Bespoke Leather Jacket

Leather jackets can make ordinary attire look cool. Sporting a leather jacket can enhance your looks manifold. Therefore, one must be very particular about buying them. 

Though off-the-rack readymade jackets come in a variety of sizes for you to try, they may not fit you the best. In contrast, a bespoke leather jacket can be tailored to bring out the best in you. 

If you buy a custom-made jacket, you can avail a plethora of benefits like the customized leather fit, personality enhancement, personalized style, etc.

But the question is what factors should be considered to buy a custom-made jacket?

Well, don’t worry because we have put together a list for you. Let’s take a look:

1.     Quality

You don’t plan to buy a leather jacket every second month, or do you? That is why it is best to get quality assurance from the company customizing your leather jacket. 

It is best to know which material is being used for production. Also, ensure that they use good-quality studs, zippers, and buttons. The last thing you want is a zipper of sub-par quality that makes an obnoxious noise and gives a coarse feeling.

2.     Purpose

Leather jackets come in different colors and styles. Therefore, you must decide the purpose behind buying it. However, you cannot get such liberty while buying an off-the-rack piece as it is made keeping a standard design in mind.    

Once you know where you will be using your custom-made jacket, it will be much easier to convey the design you wish for your jacket. 

Bomber style jackets are optimum for formal occasions and workplaces, whereas funky avant-garde style jackets are perfect for casual get-togethers where these jackets can make you stand out. 

3.     The right fit

Fitting is a paramount factor that decides what your personality will look like. The best way to convey the measurements is by sending one of your pre-existing jackets to the company so that they can get the right idea about your body structure. First, however, make sure the jacket you are sending fits you perfectly. 

Along with the fit, you must aim for comfort too. Anything too loose will make the jacket look baggy. In contrast, a jacket too tight will be extremely uncomfortable. 

Therefore, it would be best to choose a size that perfectly sits on your body and enhances its appearance. 

4.     Color

The color of your leather makes a spark difference in the way people perceive you. For example, if you are wearing a bold red jacket, you may come across as someone funky in the eyes of the people. In contrast, if you are sporting a standard black leather jacket, you will come across as someone classy and stylish. 

A serious drawback with bold jackets is that you cannot sport them everywhere and every time since it is eye-catching. But, on the other hand, you don’t want people to think you wear the same jacket every day. 

So, choose your color wisely. And, if you are having trouble choosing one, then simply opt for a black or a brown color jacket as they never go out of style.

Final Thoughts 

The definition of a perfect custom-made jacket can be different for different people. However, before buying one, you must know the purpose behind it. The good purpose will help you communicate the right design instructions to the manufacturer.

Also, do not hesitate to ask for a free trial. During that phase, you can test the comfort level, the fit, and the looks. 

Authentic bespoke jacket manufacturing companies allow you a free trial for 3-7 days. In the meantime, if you find it uncomfortable, you can send the jacket back for alteration.

So, consider these tips and get a custom-made jacket today.

Third Man announces Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York

Third Man Records is excited to announce Vault Package #49: Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 (1980-1985). In conjunction with Sony/Legacy, Third Man will release this 4xLP collection (pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit) full of previously unreleased outtakes, mixes and more, complete with a 16-page booklet of liner notes and track notations and four uniquely-colored LPs in their own individual LP sleeves, all housed together in an impressive custom slipcase. The songs on the Third Man Vault will be the ONLY vinyl release of those 42 songs. There is NO material overlap between the 2xLP version from Sony/Legacy and the 4xLP release from Third Man. Sign up is open now through July 31 at midnight CT.

In the early 1980s, while the music industry was grappling with the arrival of new trends and technology, from MTV to compact discs to digital recording, Bob Dylan was writing and recording new songs for a new decade, creating an essential new chapter in his studio catalog. The latest in Columbia/Legacy’s highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series revisits an often-forgotten, rich vein in Dylan’s vast and complex catalog, shining fresh light on the provocative new musical directions Dylan was taking as a songwriter and a recording artist from 1980 through 1985. Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York (1980-1985) celebrates the rich creative period surrounding Dylan’s albums Shot Of Love, Infidels, and Empire Burlesque with previously unreleased outtakes, alternate takes, rehearsal recordings, live performances and more.

Third Man Records, in conjunction with Sony/Legacy, is humbled to release a limited edition 4LP vinyl collection of Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) as their 49th Vault package. Pressed on gold, violet, orange and purple discs at the state-of-the-art Third Man Pressing facility in Detroit, the set includes a 16-page booklet of liner notes and track notations, as well as individual LP sleeves all housed together in an impressive slipcase.

Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) is also available in a deluxe 5xCD boxset as well as 2xCD and 2xLP 12” vinyl highlight packages. The songs on the Third Man Vault will be the ONLY vinyl release of those 42 songs. There is NO material overlap between the 2xLP version from Sony/Legacy and the 4xLP release from Third Man.

LP One of Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 (1980-1985) was recorded in 1980 and 1981 and finds Dylan rehearsing a variety of his own catalog compositions (“Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)”), rearranging some traditional folk tunes (“Jesus Met the Woman at the Well,” “Mary of the Wild Moor”) and revving up a selection of surprising covers (“Mystery Train” featuring Ringo Starr, “Fever,” “Abraham, Martin and John”) with a group of musicians including Frank Fred Tackett (guitar), David Mansfield (mandolin), Willie Smith (keyboards), Tim Drummond (bass), Jim Keltner (drums) and background vocals by Clydie King, Carolyn Dennis, Gwen Evans, and Regina McCrary.

LP Two of Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York (1980-1985) is devoted to outtakes and alternate takes of recordings, produced by Chuck Plotkin for Shot of Love, as well as material Bob Dylan wrote for Infidels, performed by the all-star band assembled for the album, produced by Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler, which featured Knopfler (guitar), Mick Taylor (guitar), Alan Clark (keyboards), Robbie Shakespeare (bass) and Sly Dunbar (drums).

LP Four of the album includes live tracks (“Enough Is Enough” from Slane Castle, Ireland, and “License to Kill” from Late Night with David Letterman, March 22, 1984) alongside alternate takes and outtakes from the Empire Burlesque sessions, produced by Bob Dylan, including the premiere of the new song “Straight A’s in Love.”

According to the Producer’s Note in the album: “The alternate takes selected for this set are different than the ones released on previous volumes of The Bootleg Series. They are included here to illustrate the musical journey Bob Dylan undertook during these years.”

In his liner notes for Bob Dylan – Springtime In New York, Damien Love writes, “And that’s the real story of this gloriously untrammeled collection. The songs. The songs stripped free of trappings, tampering, passing tastes, and judgements. The songs broken down to the sound of people really doing this, right now, acting on instinct. The songs rough and rowdy, bruised and tender, joking and crying, nagging and striving and yearning. The songs were always there, and here they are still, keeping pace with us.”

Fans have only until July 31st to subscribe to Third Man Records Vault, where they will automatically receive this package. Visit here to sign up.

Swarovski Encrusted Bottle

360 Magazine has revealed a new, bedazzled brand bottle in collaboration with Integrity Bottles. Decorated with approximately 6,040 Swarovski crystal gems, this lavish flask radiates glamour and elegance. The shimmering container was created by artist Gabe Majalca of Good Vibe Gliders, who constructed the piece in over thirty hours of dedicated craftsmanship. Thousands of glimmering gems encase the container, creating a luxurious, polished and sophisticated look, as 360 Magazine represents. The bottle is to be debuted at the upcoming 360 Magazine Immersive Bodega Pop-Up.

Chrysolite, which is Greek for “gold stone,” sheaths the outside of the gleaming bottle in a rich yellow-green hue. For the “360” design on the side of the bottle, Chrysolite AB was utilized. Further, the cork is detailed with Electric White DeLite. The construction of the flagon took 30 hours in total. Overall, the process in creating this custom Swarovski-swathed bottle was time consuming, but the end result is an incredible feat of precision and dazzling artistry.

On 360 Magazine’s website, the popular Summer Sip List showcases some of the magazine’s favorite alcohol brands and drinks, all of which can be enjoyed in the new container. Cocktail recipes like Pinnacle Vodka’s Apricot Honeysuckle Spritz, Santo Spirit’s Hibiscus Smash, D’USSE’s champagne sparkler, and Cavit Wines’ Rosjito all invite readers to host a happy hour of their own. 360 Magazine is sure that the new pitcher will bring good times spent together enjoying fine sips and spirits. Now that the careful process of creating the bottle is over with, we will be sure to use this bottle in our everyday lives, whether we’re trying out new cocktail recipes, transporting drinks on-the-go, or simply displaying the container’s magnificent beauty.

This isn’t the first time 360 Magazine has worked with Integrity Bottles. In November of 2020, Integrity Bottles unveiled the 360 Magazine collection of glassware. The collection features seven products, including decanters, a refillable bottle, a stemless wine glass, a whiskey rocks glass, a 16 oz pint glass, and a Gibraltar beer mug. As with the previously released products, the new bedazzled carafe can hold your scotch, vodka, tequila, gin, rum, or any other desired sips. As the two brands look to their most recent collaboration to create the Swarovski-coated container, Integrity and 360 Magazine gleam with pride and assurance in the highest quality of production.

Integrity Bottles started as a small business between friends, but has blossomed into a thriving online store and studio based in San Diego. The company is run by military veterans and former law enforcement officers who always place integrity and honor at the forefront of their business practices. Having sold more than 3,200 bottles and earned 100% positive reviews on Amazon, Integrity Bottle products are sure to bring more merry making into your home. Integrity Bottles’ website can be accessed here, and customers can use the discount code “GIVEBACK” for 5% off their purchase.

Gabe Majalca, who constructed the 360 Magazine × Integrity Bottles’ bottle, spoke about the design process. His brand, Good Vibe Gliders, provides custom, crystal-encrusted creations to suit customer’s vibes.

What was your process of decorating this brilliant 360 Mag bottle?

First thing was choosing the right color. We wanted something that resembled sacred water or a magical lagoon. Chrysolite and Chrysolite AB Swarovski turned out to be the color most true to my vision. Next, was construction. It’s most important to keep your lines straight at the beginning, starting with the foundation. So, by the time your pattern reaches the top, your lines will still be straight!

How long did the process of decorating the bottle with Swarovski crystals take?

It was a tedious 30-hour [long] project. The thing is, you’re not just laying stones in a line–eventually you need to fill in the 360 Logo–and that right there was a massive challenge. It’s similar to a jigsaw puzzle. Putting the right stone in the right place is paramount to the letters looking clean [and] uniform. Lots of mental energy went into the letters. I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

What did you think when Vaughn first came to you with the idea?

Vaughn’s the homie and I knew he had worked with Integrity Bottles before. So, naturally, I was stoked to hear 360 Mag was getting themselves an iced-out bottle. I’ve always wanted to complete a Swarovski bottle–so the project made perfect sense to me and I jumped right on it. Anything for Vaughn.

How do you feel after seeing the original vision tangibly come to life?

It feels great! Looks like a magical lagoon! Something to keep in mind–it’s always a marathon when doing this artwork, so seeing something come together, completely finished–well, that makes me really happy inside. This was a challenging but very satisfying project, no doubt about that.

What was your first thought when you viewed the finished bottle product?

“I’m done! I’m finally done!” Haha No really though, I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what I said. This bottle was a deceiving hard project to complete – so many elements. Since this was my first try at a something like this, there were many twists and turns to the design that I simply did not foresee. In the end, it was like someone giving me an XL pizza and sa[ying], “you can’t get up until you finish it.” Not that it wouldn’t be totally delicious while I was eating it, but eventually you slow down at about half way through [when] you’re getting full and your stomach starts to hurt, but your tastebuds and your will power keep saying MORE! That’s what this project felt like… right up to the point when [I] took the last delicious bite. Worth it.

What do you think would be the best use of this bottle? Do you have a drink of choice you imagine drinking from it?

Easy, tell Vaughn to make me a Caramelized Citrus Smash! This refreshing summer cocktail is equal parts vodka and grilled citrus juice with sparkling water or lemon-lime soda. Vaughn will need some ruby-red grapefruits, lemons, limes, and navel oranges. Slice your citrus in half, brush the cut side with some honey, and dip the cut sides in sugar. Throw your fruit cut-side-down on the grill to caramelize the sugar. Once grilled, let it rest until cool. Lastly–the booze. Mix 1.5 ounces vodka, 1.5 ounces juice, and 1 ounce of water or sparkling water.

Hey V, I’m on my way!

Vaughn Lowery, President of 360 Magazine, spoke about the concept and creation the 360 × Integrity Bottles design:

How you originally come up with this idea of encrusting a bottle in Swarovski crystals?

Not too long ago, Victoria Secret had embellished some lingerie in diamonds for a runway show. Shortly after, Joe Boxer mocked the idea with boxer briefs for a stint during NYFW in Bryant Park. As the former spokesperson for this brand [Joe Boxer], I struggled in these uncomfortable underwear (the rhinestones literally dug deep into my skin causing several scratches on my thighs). Over the years, Gabe has bejeweled scooters and e-bikes for Good Vibe Gliders. Once we saw that he’s ventured out into sneakers with various customizations, we knew that he had to lace one of our Integrity Bottles with Swarovski crystals, adding a touch a glam and panache. This meticulous process took more than 30 hours and was executed by a total of 4 craftsmen with close to 1000 dollars of materials (not to mention intensive work).

Did you come up with the Chrysolite color way? We wanted the bottle to embody a monochromatic color palette to reflect today’s modern and colorless society in celebration of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Why were these gems/colors specifically chosen?  We provided Gabe with a water theme and the end product represents clarity and purity, mimicking our eclectic mantra of transparency. After all, 360 readers are permanently celebrating their uniqueness along with this masterpiece.

Does the vessel actually cost $1,000,000? No, not at all. But Swarovski crystals are the closest thing to a blood diamond without destroying the lives of people like in the Congo. They refract light as a prism, showcasing almost all the colors of the rainbow (thus paying tribute to the LGBTQ community).

Why did you choose to work with Integrity Bottles again? What is working with them like?

Integrity Bottles is a veteran-led business and provides opportunities for people who have proudly served our country. The[y] [are the] same people who return from a period of service to find themselves displaced in society, especially [from] the work force.

How do you envision using this bottle in your own life?

We will exhibit the container in our workspaces and activations though out the world where guests will be able to witness its unforgettable beauty. Furthermore, several team members mentioned that we could auction the carafe in the hopes of helping to raise awareness and offer them some financial support for their efforts.

How do you view this product as representative of 360 Magazine?

Everything in this made-to-measure bottle embodies 360. Similar to life’s circle, we start our journey into this world as a fragile piece of glass. Over the years, we have evolved into something bigger and better than we were before.

The Hot Wheels Legends Tour is Back with Global Hunt for Next Fan-Made Custom Hot Wheels Die-Cast Toy

  • Celebrating its fourth year, the 2021 Hot Wheels™ Legends Tour presented by Mobil 1 will expand the global search for the ultimate life-size custom car to be immortalized as a 1:64 Hot Wheels die-cast model.
  • Kicking off in April, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour is expected to receive 10,000+ entrants across 14 countries and 5 continents.
  • The Tour will culminate in November with a global grand finale event, crowning the next Hot Wheels Garage of Legends™ inductee.

The 2021 Hot Wheels Legends Tour presented by Mobil 1 is officially open for fan car submissions. Back for its fourth year, the 2021 Hot Wheels Legends Tour will continue the Hot Wheels tradition of offering global fans the unique opportunity to have their one-of-a-kind life-size car creations forever immortalized as the next Hot Wheels Garage of Legends 1:64 die-cast toy. 

In true challenger spirit, this year’s Hot Wheels Legends Tour competition is geared up to be bigger than ever before. With stops spanning 14 countries and 5 continents, the 2021 showdown will feature both live and virtual events kicking off in April with Livestream stops in New Zealand (April 15), Australia (April 22), and the U.S. and Canada (April 29).

Dates for future stops will be announced soon, and fans may register or learn more about the Hot Wheels Legends Tour by visiting the website. Livestreams will be available to view on the Hot Wheels Facebook page, on Walmart.com, and through automotive media partners in specific countries. Live events will be returning to U.S.-based Walmart stores this summer.

“Finding time to build isn’t always easy, but with many spending more time at home in the garage over the past year, we expect to see so many more passion-project submissions for the 2021 Hot Wheels Legends Tour,” said Ted Wu, Global Head of Hot Wheels Design at Mattel. “Last year, we received thousands of entries, and with the added international stops, this year’s competition is expected to be more impressive with more vehicle variety than ever.”

In partnership with Mobil 1, Hot Wheels Legends Tour stops will have regional winners plus a Mobil 1 Fan Favorite, which will then be entered into the semi-final rounds representing the U.S. and global regions, yielding 10 finalists. The Tour will culminate at a grand finale event in November where there will be one custom car creation inducted into the Hot Wheels Garage of Legends and honored as the next Hot Wheels die-cast toy sold around the world.

In addition to being immortalized as a 1:64 die-cast toy, previous Legends Tour winners, including 2018 winning 2JetZ and the 2019 winning classic coupe titled “The Nash,” will soon be available for purchase and play through the Forza Horizon 4 video game through the Hot Wheels Legends Car Pack on Xbox, Windows 10, iOS and Android devices.

Since its launch in 2018 to celebrate Hot Wheels 50 Anniversary, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour has grown from an American-based series of local Walmart events across the United States to the world’s largest traveling car show, bringing in builders and automotive fans through both virtual and live events. In 2021 the Hot Wheels Legends Tour will be featuring stops in a dozen new countries, including Australia with Big W, New Zealand with The Warehouse, and more. 

“The Mobil 1 brand is excited to again support the Hot Wheels Legends Tour,” said Ryan Allen, Senior Shopper Marketing Advisor, ExxonMobil. “We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Hot Wheels to showcase incredible cars, built by incredible people. We are eager to see the return of the Mobil 1 Fan Favorite and encourage fans to vote for their favorite car at each stop to get it to the final. We are always thrilled to see there are fans who love cars as much as we do!”

Conceived in 1968 by an innovator, a rocket scientist, and a car designer, Hot Wheels 1:64 scale die-cast cars were designed to look awesome and perform like no other toy. Five decades later, Hot Wheels is the number one selling toy in the world* with more than 16.5 cars sold every second. The brand has evolved from a simple, yet beloved, toy car with an orange track system into a global franchise powerhouse that offers fans of all ages multi-channel play experiences.

DISNEY × ROY CHOI TO LAUNCH “MICKEY & FRIENDS(GIVING)”

DISNEY × ROY CHOI TO LAUNCH “MICKEY & FRIENDS(GIVING)”

In honor of the popular Friendsgiving holiday, Disney has teamed up with award-winning Chef Roy Choi – known for his popular restaurants Kogi BBQ and Best Friend – and five renowned pizzerias across the U.S. to launch Mickey & Friends(giving), offering a whole new take on the traditional ‘pie.’
Disney and Chef Choi collaborated with his friends at Jon & Vinny’s in Los Angeles; Home Slice Pizza in Austin; Roberta’s Pizza in Brooklyn; Pizzeria Beddia in Philadelphia; and Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix to create six specialty pizzas inspired by the Sensational Six friends that will be available for one day only, on Saturday, Nov. 21. From an updated take on a classic pepperoni in honor of the true original Mickey Mouse, to a spicy ingredient as a nod to Donald Duck’s feistiness, each pie embodies the characters’ distinct personalities and collectively tells a story of friendship.
Starting today, fans can pre-order the specialty pizzas – for local pickup or delivery on Nov. 21 – at disney.com/mickeyfriendsstaytrue. Each pizza will be $36.00, plus tax, and will include a custom pizza box and Mickey & Friends(giving) stickers, for those who pre-ordered. Quantities are limited. First-come, first-served, while supplies last.
“I am so excited to host this ultimate pizza party mash-up for fans and friends to share this Friendsgiving together,” said Chef Roy Choi. “I named one of my restaurants Best Friend because I live for that feeling when you’re just hanging out having fun with your friends and nothing else in the world matters. I was able to team up with some of the best pizzerias in the U.S. to make some awesome recipes inspired by Mickey and his Friends, and now, fans too can experience them with each other this holiday.”

Inspired by the true original, Mickey Mouse, Jon & Vinny’s special pizza-pie features a twist on classic pepperoni ‘za. This pie features smokies sausages smothered with three cheeses (fresh mozzarella, aged mozzarella, and caciocavallo) and topped with onions. A new spin on a timeless classic.

  • Home Slice Pizza (Austin) – Minnie Mouse

Inspired by Minnie Mouse’s fashionable, bold, and fun spirit, Home Slice’s specialty pizza features a deck oven pie topped with a bright red sauce and rich and creamy mozzarella white polka dots. At the center of the pie is a parmesan crisp in the shape of Minnie’s signature bow.

  • Roberta’s Pizza (Bushwick) – Donald Duck

Inspired by the legendary Donald Duck, Roberta’s pizza speaks to Donald Duck’s feisty and fiery spirit. It features Roberta’s house-made spicy nduja sausage and bitter castelfranco radicchio topped with smooth Taleggio cheese and lemon zest.

Inspired by Daisy Duck’s sassy yet classy attitude, Roberta’s white pie features Roberta’s special salsa verde and thinly sliced potatoes. It is sure to bring some of Daisy’s elegance and spiciness to your Friendsgiving table.

Inspired by Goofy’s quirky, funny, and slightly clumsy personality, Pizzeria Beddias’s crafted pizza pie includes your favorite sandwich toppings on a pizza, and what could be goofier than that! This pizza features a light tomato cream base, mozzarella, finished with mortadella and topped with a crunchy salad. It’s playful, and so yummy!

  • Pizzeria Bianco (Phoenix) – Pluto

Inspired by the loveable Pluto and his insatiable appetite, Pizzeria Bianco’s specialty pizza is a fun play on meat-lovers pie. It features a generous helping of fennel sausage, pepperoni and cheese. It’s sure to be delicious!
