1962 Jaguar E-Type

This 1962 version is a 3.8 litre coupé being sold at the Silverstone Festival Auction this August. It has full FIA/HTP papers, meaning that it can compete in events straight away, giving you the perfect reason to get out on track and enjoy the racing season.

The Little Car Company Bugatti Baby II

The Little Car Company Bugatti Baby II

Bugatti turns 110 this year and to celebrate, The Little Car Company – makers of some of the best toys for petrolheads ever conceived – have worked with Bugatti to develop the Baby II, a 75% scale, fully-electric reincarnation of the iconic Bugatti Type 35. Impeccably hand-built on a made-to-order basis (meaning plenty of customisation options), it’s a strictly limited edition of 500 cars worldwide. Yes, it’s a toy, but it’s one that can still hit top speeds of 42mph with multiple driving models, so you might want to keep an eye out if you let your kids take it out for a spin around the garden.

Pullman Editions 1955 Monaco Grand Prix Poster, from £420

Pullman Editions 1955 Monaco Grand Prix Poster

Pullman Editions’ vintage style posters recapture the glamour and suspense of a bygone era, and in no poster is that more evident than this ode to the Monaco Grand Prix. Racers tearing past the legendary Hotel Monte Carlo with a view of the Côte d’Azur in the background, it’s part travel inspiration and part nostalgic flashback to the early days of motor racing. Either way it’s the perfect gift for any classic petrolhead.

McLaren 765LT V8, £379,995

McLaren 765LT V8

There’s nothing sexier than an orange McLaren and in its signature Elite Paint Ember Orange colour, this McLaren 765LT V8 is one of the most stunning modern hyper- cars around. It’s inspired by the legendary McLaren F1 GTR Longtail – a car that is itself worth about $20 million. Its modern counterpart doesn’t have quite such a big price tag, although it’s still an impressive £379,995. It’s powered by a 4.0 litre twin- turbo V8 with a top speed of 205mph.

1939 Talbot Lago T120

1939 Talbot Lago T120

The Talbot Lago T120 is the kind of car that can’t help but put a smile on your face when you see it dashing around a country lane or taking part in vintage sports-car championships. This is one of only two T120s created, designed as a replica of the formidable T150 Tourist Trophy Sports, making it exceptionally rare. This car has a well-documented history dating back all the way to 1939 when it was gifted as payment to a racing driver, since then it has gone on to become a successful racing car in its own right, competing in endurance rallies and road tours.
