Rear View Prints Classic Car Print

We love these stylish prints from Rear View Prints and with more than 250 designs, we're pretty sure you'll be able to find something for that petrol head in your life, whether they love a racing Porsche, classic F1 cars or something more humble like a Land Rover or classic Mini. There are also film related prints such as Bullitt and Ghostbusters along with patent style technical drawings of iconic cars like the Shelby Mustang. Various sizes and frames are available and even better, if you buy 3 you get the 4th free.

Mini Cooper S Three Mile Drive

Know someone who has always hankered to recreate the chase sequence from The Italian Job? The proper 1960s 'you're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off' version, not that travesty from the 2000s. Well they can (sort of) with this Mini Cooper S driving experience. They will get to put a 1968 Mini Cooper S through its paces with a three-mile drive for one with an instructor on hand, hopefully telling them to 'get a bleedin' move on'. It's available at 15 locations across the UK but you do have to pay extra for weekends.

Double Supercar Driving Blast with High Speed Passenger Ride

For those who can't pick just one supercar, this driving experience from Buy A Gift let's you pick two from a range of cars - including an Aston Martin, Audi R8, BMW i8, Porsche 911, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Nissan GT-R and the Jaguar F-Type. You get to push your driving skills to the limit around a track for three miles in each car and, when you’re done, you’ll be driven around by a professional to show you where you were going wrong. It's available at 70 locations across the UK but important to note that there's a £20 extra charge for weekends.

LEGO Porsche 911

There's no shortage of LEGO sets based on cars - we could have very easily included the LEGO Technics Lamborghini Sian here but at £350 it's pretty steep. Instead we think this Porsche 911 from the LEGO Creator Expert range is a gorgeous set and much more reasonably priced at £120. With close to 1500 pieces and 35cm in length you can cleverly choose between finishing it as a Turbo or a Targa version, with different roofs and wheels.

Batmobile Driving Blast

Pow, Thwack, Kaboom, etc. From a time when Batman didn't take itself too seriously and before Adam West was the Mayor in Family Guy, this was the bona fide Batmobile. While you're unlikely to see Christian Bale rocking around Gotham in this, you can let that Batman fan in your life have the chance to drive it for three miles at one of 14 locations in the UK. Also, it sold for $4.2 million at auction in 2013, so best not ding it...

Spytrack Nano tracker

The Spytrack Nano tracker by Rewire Security is a small tracker device for keeping tabs on any particular thing of your choice - so it's very handy if you're worried about your car being stolen. The app integrates Google Maps and using the desktop site you can set up ‘geofence zones’ that allow you to place markers on the map so that if the tracker goes outside of them you’ll be alerted. Aside from that, you can set up alerts if the tracker moves or travels beyond a certain speed. If you want to track a car, you’ll need to buy the optional magnetic case to make it fully waterproof and stick it in the wheel arch.

Corgi James Bond Lotus Turbo - For Your Eyes Only

Yes, that's right - more James Bond stuff. But we can't resist and seeing as there's a new Bond film out, 2021 is a bumper year for Bond related gifts. And we love these James Bond 1:36 scale diecast cars from Corgi. Beautifully finished and highly detailed, they come in a lovely presentation box so make a great gift. There are several to choose from including BMW Z3 from Goldeneye, the Lotus Esprit submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me the and of course the iconic Aston Martin DB5 complete with bullet holes. But we'd choose this classic Lotus Esprit from For Your Eyes Only, complete with roof mounted skis.

Nextbase 422GW

It's not what you'd call the most fun gift ever, but a dash cam is something you wished you had in the event of an accident. Or just to show your mum how good you are at parking these days. The Nextbase 422GW features GPS to record your speed and location, WiFi to watch and send the footage directly from your phone, and Intelligent Parking Mode. It also has extra features like Emergency SOS and even Alexa voice assistance.
