If the already luxurious Cadillac Escalade isn’t quite enough, California coach builder Lexani Motorcars has a new option: The piano-inspired Escalade Sky Captain. Decked out in black and white inside, with 24 carat gold trim, the Sky Captain is designed to evoke private air travel down to its deployable tray tables. For passengers who require more than just an upscale atmosphere, Lexani also says that the Sky Captain can be outfitted up to a B7 level of ballistic armour protection. If you have enough money to afford this thing, maybe you need that kind of protection.

The Dodge Viper ACR is an incredible track car. On the street, some people say it’s not particularly comfortable, but in the right hands, it’s about the fastest street-legal car you can buy. But what does Top Gear host Chris Harris think of the Viper?
