Christmas is shortly upon us, but what can you get for the car mad loved one in your life? We’ve come up with six of the very best gifts at a variety of different price points as suggestions.
Lego Bugatti Chiron
With the Bugatti Chiron costing in excess of £2 million, this Lego version might be a slightly more obtainable option. Finished to 1:8 scale, this model features intricate features such as an eight-speed gearbox, and even a special key enabling you to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position.
It’s over five inches high and 22 inches long, so it’s certainly a big model. It has a long build time however as it’s made up of 3,599 pieces.
Price: £329.99. (Can be purchased at: https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/Bugatti-Chiron-42083)

Price: from £285 (depending on time of year) (Can be purchased at: https://www.silverstone.co.uk/track-days/car-track-days/)
There are few British manufacturers as well-heralded as Morgan, and the little Malvern-based company now has a range of products designed for the enthusiast. This, a dark blue sweatshirt with the Morgan name emblazoned on the front, is a particularly stylish highlight.
It’s also available for a relatively decent price – particularly when you consider the cost that other manufacturers charge for associated clothing lines.
This is certainly at the top end of the price bracket – your loved one is certainly going to be very lucky! The TentBox is a tent designed to fit atop any vehicle, allowing you to make camp anywhere you fancy stopping.
It’ll certainly mean you stand out at the campsite, and has enough room for 2-3 people to sleep. It even comes fully fitted with a memory foam mattress, as well as two panoramic windows at both the front and back.
Price: £1,650 (Can be purchased at: https://www.tent-box.com/uk/)

It’s even got a natty little roof rack for storing extremely small items but, most importantly, it’s orange – and that makes it even better as a potential present.

If your loved one is a motor-proud kind of person, then this is
an ideal present. The Autoglym Bodywork, Wheels and Interior Collection
contains everything you need to properly clean a car from top to bottom.
