Villa Troglodyte is a one-of-one and it's not even close. The structure, designed by acclaimed Parisian architect Jean-Pierre, is literally carved out of rock and set in one of the world's most exclusive country codes.
The project sounded like quite a feat for the Pierre and he even questioned if it was at all possible:
How can one carve out a house form a rock, a landscape, without altering it, by respecting its volumes, its fractures and vegetation. the challenge of this project was to fit the house into the landscape by working with rather than against it. thus, the project is built backwards, it is hollowed out of the mass.

Ultra rare is just the tip of the iceberg in describing the latest concoction by Aston Martin. Teaming up with Bowmore, a single-malt Whiskey dating all the way back to Scotland 1779, Aston Martin lent its DB5 piston, to create a bottle of whiskey unlike any other.
According to their website, Bowmore sees their partnership with Aston Martin as a "definitive moment in history" where they share a special 1964 distilled "Black Bowmore" in the limited-edition hybrid bottles. With only 25 bottles releasing later this Fall, the hefty £50,000 ($65,000) price tag.
