Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron, £329
The insane performance and equally ridiculous price tag of the Bugatti Chiron make it less-than-accessible for most of us mere mortals, at least on a life-sized scale. This charming self-assembly model from Lego’s older brother on the other hand is a good deal easier to wrap up under the tree. Authentic down to the typography on the headrest, it’s one of the largest and most detailed Technic sets yet and makes for a seriously cool denizen on any shelf of automotive geekery. It’s not a toy, it’s a model!
Available at Lego.
Smoke & Mirrors: Cars, Photography and Dreams of the Open Road, £25
Shameless plug for our motoring editor’s own book? Possibly, but that doesn’t stop Smoke and Mirrors being one of the coolest collections of automotive photography we’ve ever seen. From abstract plumes of smoke to incredible vistas and machine -gun-mounted machines in Libya, your usual slick car imagery this is not. It is however a superlative coffee table book.
Available at Foyles.
Ferrari Roma Leather Jacket, £3,500
Wearing anything with the Ferrari badge front and centre might seem cool, but it suggests you can’t afford the car itself. There’s no such issue with the marque’s own Roma jacket. Sleek, elegant and made in Italy from soft nappa leather, this is a driving jacket worthy of the prancing horse. Thankfully, with the lack of badge anywhere easily visible, you’d never know.
Available at Ferrari.
Dom Reilly Crash Helmet Case, £850
When you turn up to the track to take your road-illegal hypercar out for a spin, you can’t be taking your bespoke crash helmet – in your own personal racing livery, of course – out of a plastic bag. Instead, try this luxurious black number on for size. Designed in collaboration with the Williams F1 team, it can fit a helmet, head- and neck-support device and a few travel necessities besides.
Available at Dom Reilly.
JYT Bespoke Art ‘CoolnVintage’, £800
Automotive artist Jean-Yves Tabourot knows what makes petrolheads tick. In the case of this piece, it’s an obsessively-restored Land Rover Series 3 CoolnVintage in its natural environment, bumping along the dust and cacti of a desert. Bright, vivid and evocative, this piece perfectly captures why the Series 3 is a classic. And hey, if that doesn’t float your boat (what is wrong with you?) then you can always commission a painting too. It’s called JYT Bespoke for a good reason.
