Five of the Most Outrageous Car Related Presents This Christmas

With an all-out battle for the “most emotional” Christmas advert underway by the likes of John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and Very, as well as the arrival of the Coca-Cola truck and high street light events up and down the country, Christmas is well and truly on the way.

It might not be December yet, but the festive rush will soon be reaching boiling point so it’s probably time to start thinking about presents for the family.

If like us at Walton Bridge Garage, you like to push your love of cars onto everyone and anyone that will let you, we’ve found some stocking fillers that might do the job.

Unfortunately, they don’t quite match our mantra of top service and low prices as these are some of the most ludicrous priced items available based on the price tag to product ratio.

Ferrari Ceramic Ashtray

Now nothing Ferarri is ever going to be cheap but this ashtray ticks the box of ridiculously overpriced, whilst remaining affordable for even the teenage Ferrari fan. Yes, £60 is in the range of most Christmas present budgets, but for an ashtray?

Bentley Tergus 37 Candle

Scented candles have become big business for the pretentious home lover that simply can’t have their home smelling of house. Now call us stuck in our ways but we think £69 is an extortionate amount for something that melts.

What’s more, we aren’t fans of over the top descriptions, or flavours, like this…

“Captures leather in layers of spice with iris wood, vibrant saffron, black pepper and frankincense with precious woods; resting on a base of tonka beans, vanilla, and patchouli.”

Porsche Design Laser Flex Pen

This next product is probably the most outrageous. What more can we say other than, it’s a pen? If you have over four hundred sheets to spend on a pen you have no sense, let alone more money than sense. Bottom of Form

Porsche Design 911 GT3 Exhaust Sound Bar

We have to secretly admit we love this and wish we had one. Ok, it is essentially an old exhaust pipe stuck to a speaker and for nearly £3k you could do a whole lot better speaker wise we’re sure.

But then you wouldn’t have a genuine 911 GT3 muffler in your living room.

Audi Table Soccer

Everyone loves foosball regardless of gender or age and it can be a great thing to have kicking about during Christmas.

But for nearly £13.5k you would have to love foosball more than your family, as this sort of money could go towards A LOT more than a few little plastic men and a small ball.

We think Audi really are taking the p*** with this as it doesn’t even look that impressive. After a few beers and a frantic game of foosball, it doesn’t matter how well a table is made, it’s probably going to fall apart. Imagine how crushing that moment would be watching over thirteen grand fall apart in your hands.

Bugatti also do an Ostrich leather jacket for just short of £18k, but we aren’t event getting into that.

So, there you go. If you want to splash out on useless tat for an extreme cost, just to express your love for cars, here’s some options. Although believe us, there are a lot more out there.
