$1 million advent calendar by Porsche Design

After they launched their fall-winter 2010-2011 fashion collection, a clothing line which includes several leather jackets and lots of accessories, Porsche Design announced they’ve just launched an exclusive $1 million calendar.

Of course, it’s not the usual 12 months paper calendar, it is made out of polished aluminum, is 1.75 meters tall and will be produced in only five copies. One for each continent.

The holder of such a timetable will get a special surprise every day, from December 1st to December 24th. Each day has its own dedicated box, which can be accessed only in that day and has a special gift that could vary from golden sun glasses, writing tools or Bounce S2 snickers.

On December 24th, the calendar will open its last box, revealing the last gift. It could be a P6910 watch, a P7340 Porsche Design kitchen or a RFF28 yacht.

Usually, an advent calendar is a box with 24 little chocolates with a story underneath. But Porsche Design went further with this tradition, replacing the chocolate with luxury items.

Charlie Sheen arrested on Christmas Day

The Wall Street star was arrested by Police on Friday morning after an emergency call from a house in the ski resort of Aspen, Colorado. An ambulance went to the house, but no-one was taken to hospital.
The star was suspected of assault, menacing and criminal mischief. He was released on $8,500 (£5,300) bail Friday night and was released from jail at 7 p.m. He is due in court on Feb. 8, 2010 at 10:30 a.m.

“They were fighting at a dinner in a friend’s house and it continued until the next morning,” rumor say. “Both of them were drinking and neither was supposed to be. They both have histories of alcohol abuse and have made every effort to stop. But things got out of hand.”
It is not the actor’s first brush with the law. He was arrested in 1996 for assaulting a woman, who claimed she had been knocked unconscious at his home. He was also the only star named as a client of “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss, testifying at her trial that he had paid her $50,000 for escorts.

Mr. Sheen is the son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of actor-director Emilio Estevez. Charlie Sheen married in May 2008 to Brooke Mueller Sheen, a property investor who gave birth to the couple’s first children, twin boys, in March. Moreover, the star has proven one of US TV’s most popular sitcoms and made Charlie Sheen America’s highest paid TV star in 2008.

Christmas Gifts from Ferrari

This Christmas, Ferrari brings a special one-off Ferrari 599 to the public. When we say public, we mean those who have enough figures in their bank account.This piece of art was built by Ferrari and Pininfarina expressly for Edward Walson. Walson approached Ferrari last year to commission a modern interpretation of a one-off 330 LMB used in a Frederico Fellini film,.The P540 Superfast Aperta is an unusual mixture of styling cues: the front from 599, the rear, the grille inspired by 330 LMB, and the body line of a Maserati GT. Still, the powertrain of a 611-hp 6.0-liter V-12 mated to a six-speed F1-style sequential gearbox is unchanged from a “normal” 599 GTB.Walson said that, after 14 months of manufacturing, he has the most special Christmas present of his life.
