Talk about LUXURIOUS! The Robb Report Magazine has served as the definitive authority on connoisseurship for ultra-affluent consumers. Robb Report not only showcases the products and services available from the most prestigious luxury brands around the globe, but it also provides its sophisticated readership with detailed insight into a range of these subjects, which include sports and luxury automobiles, yachts, real estate, travel, private aircraft, fashion, fine jewelry and watches, art, wine, state-of-the-art home electronics and much more.
Sticking with its most luxurious brands they released their Ultimate 21 Gifts (for 'uberly' wealthy folks) and wait to see the figures!
• $44 million for Aquos Yachts’ 164-ft. expedition superyacht Star Fish to be delivered in 2012 and a three-week, 10-person charter trip aboard her sister ship, the 148-ft. Big Fish (above), while you’re waiting.
• $20 million for a full-size custom-built backyard theme park complete with roller coaster, virtual reality rides, carousel, and a bunch of other ridiculous crap.
• $15 million for a collection of 13 natural red diamonds, among the rarest – and most vulgar – gems in the world, with a custom jewelry design service from Leviev and two red and white diamond rings.
• $9.78 million for a Bugatti package, including a 1936 Type 57SC Corsica Four-Place Open Tourer, a 2011 Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, a Parmigiani Bugatti Super Sport watch and an OriginTimes Big Block watch winder.
• $2.5 million for an Aero L-39 Albatross fighter jet (below) and a four-day aerial training and combat experience for eight participants culminating in a fighter jet battle royale where hopefully no one gets killed.
• $1.75 million to co-sponsor and participate in a three-month mission to save lions from extinction led by National Geographic explorers with private jet travel to 11 African countries and stays at luxury safari camps.
• $1.6 million for a bespoke two-person submersible glider built by Hawkes Ocean Technologies with a three-day training jaunt to the Bahamas so you don’t accidentally drown.
• $1.5 million for eight extremely rare single-malt Macallan whiskies barreled during each of the last eight decades plus eight custom Lalique decanters to hold them. Actually, this one’s a steal. Bottoms up.
