Swedish gun and rifle maker VO Vapen, founded in 1977 by master gunsmith Viggo Olsson, fashions the world’s most exclusive handmade hunting rifles.

Their newest creation is designed as a tribute to the Vikings and the Norse gods – behold the VO Viking Odin.First in a series of four entirely unique guns, each devoted to a different mythological figure, the Odin is engraved with the god’s image together with his ravens Hugin and Munin, against a background of 24 carat gold.

You don’t have to travel all the way to Sweden to lay hands on it; the Odin is currently residing in the gunroom of William & Son, London.

You do, however, have to come up with $300,000.

Obviously, you don’t go hunting with a rifle like this in any old SUV; an exquisite gun calls for an equally impressive vehicle.

Our pick: the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG, which we present below with some other stylish items fit for a regal hunting trip.

We mean that literally – VO Vapen holds a royal appointment to H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
