Ahead of the official release of their upcoming GLA Class, Mercedes has announced a limited edition run of the 2014 Mercedes GLA Edition 1 ($TBA). While under the skin it’s basically the same (a turbocharged two-liter, four-cylinder engine with 211 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque), on the surface it gets a different treatment unique to this preview model. It sports blacked out mirrors, trim, and headlights, and a set of 19-inch wheels, with a very limited five paint options. Inside it gets all-brown leather upholstery with beige inserts, stainless steel control surfaces, an aluminum-trimmed instrument panel, and a three-spoke steering wheel. Unfortunately, it won’t be available in the USA, but if anyone wants to send me one, I wouldn’t complain.

We’re pretty crazy about our iPhones — some of us are so crazy we refuse to put cases on them, lest we sully their near-perfect appearance. But that kind of stubbornness can get us in trouble, resulting in cracked glass, scratched aluminum, and an expensive repair bill. With Truffol iPhone Cases ($75), you can protect your beloved phone without making it look like a turd. Available in either stainless steel or Italian leather, and precision CNC milled for a perfect fit, it’s the next best thing to going nude. Only available for the iPhone 5/5S.
Great branding from Sweden’s eleventh pipe maker, Stiff Pipes.
