Top Gifts for a Car Enthusiast

02nd Nov 2021

The Perfect Gift

There is a multitude of great car-related gifts available at the moment. Due to the time of year we find ourselves in, we thought it may come in handy to share a few of our favourites with you, which are guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the avid petrolhead in your life. Or perhaps as a car enthusiast, you may be looking to treat yourself?

With ideas spanning multiple price brackets, these gifts will suit multiple budgets, too. The only snippet of advice would be to do your homework before buying a present, as car enthusiasts are not all the same.

There will be those who love supercars, whilst others will prefer classics. There will be those who are devoted to a certain brand, whilst some will love a multitude of brands. Usually, a car enthusiast is pretty vocal about what brands they like, or aspire to own. Along with showing passion towards a certain motorsport, such as a Formula 1 team. With this in mind, check out our top gift ideas below.

LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender

Lego Technic Land Rover Defender

Petrolheads are mainly just big kids, and Lego Technic is pretty much that; Lego for big kids. Even the promotional marketing images for this product show a chap with a beard building it.

Developed in partnership with Land Rover, this is a seriously detailed model that replicates the all-new Land Rover Defender. With 2,573 pieces, it is no 10-minute amateur build; prepare to roll-up your sleeves and get stuck in.

With opening doors, a sophisticated transmission system and working suspension, the spanner monkeys of this world will love annoying the other half with this thing spread across the dining room table for weeks or months on end. Contact your local Stratstone Land Rover retailer to order today.

Ultimate 911 Experience

Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The Porsche 911 is one of the greatest sports cars of all time. So, what could be better than driving three flagship examples of some of the best 911 models ever created on a race track?

The Ultimate 911 experience takes place at the Porsche Experience Centre Silverstone, and is the perfect gift for any Porsche lover. The experience includes 150 minutes driving a trio of ultimate 911 models. These include the incredible 911 R (famous for its pure driving experience and manual gearbox), the much-celebrated 997 GT3 RS 4.0 (a rare, iconic special edition of the 997 RS) and the fastest 911 ever, the incredible 700bhp GT2 RS. Breakfast and lunch, or lunch and afternoon tea is included too.

It is not cheap at £1,495, but you or your favourite petrolhead will get to drive a trio of 911 models with a combined value of well in excess of one million pounds. You or your petrolhead can then brag to everyone about how you/they have driven some of the best cars on the planet.

F1 Merchandise

Aston Martin F1

Formula 1 has always been an interest to many petrolheads for generations. It could be argued in more recent times its interest has somewhat started to fade. That was until Netflix got involved and created Drive to Survive, a documentary following the highs and lows of multiple seasons, which in turn, created new F1 fans.

Some of these new fans or old fans may even be petrolheads, and so a gift associated with their favourite Formula 1 team is surely going to be a hit.

Stratstone Aston Martin retailers stock multiple merchandise from the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula 1 Team, and our Mercedes-Benz retailers can also supply a multitude of merchandise from the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 team too. With everything from caps, polo shirts, jackets and watches, our retailers can find the perfect Formula 1 gift for you.
