You can’t go wrong with a ‘No Time to Die’ slot car or a baby Ferrari

Dec 1, 2021

This Christmas, car lovers have never had it so good – even the very young ones. Here’s our pick of motoring treats priced from $72 to POA. Share So what are the coolest motoring Christmas gifts for 2021? That may depend on whether you are giving or receiving, and how easily you can fit inside an exquisitely rendered three-quarter-sized Ferrari. Whatever the case, we hope you’ll find something appealing here. Little spark The Indian eFTR Mini’s $1199 price tag is worth it: your kid will love you for ever. It’s nice to see America’s oldest motorcycle brand embracing electricity after 120 years, even if it is only with its smallest model. Known as the eFTR Mini , this battery two-wheeler also wins the cuteness award. Modelled on the FTR750 flat track racer, it’s said to be suitable for kids aged 8 to 13 when running in Low mode (16 km/h top speed) and for the over-13s in High (22 km/h). It recharges in 30 minutes. And of course there’s the merch to go with it, including matching helmet and jersey. The eFTR Mini is scheduled to arrive at Australian Indian dealerships right about now, with a recommended retail price of $1199. Junior’s delight For just $143,400, this three-quarter-sized Ferrari is sure to cause a stir under the Christmas tree. Prefer to put your kids on four wheels? It’s hard to go past this effort from England’s The Little Car Company (TLCC). Fully approved by Ferrari, and priced to match, the Testa Rossa J is a 75 per cent-scale replica of the 1957 250 Testa Rossa. The original quickly became renowned for its stunning appearance and competition successes (it was a multiple Le Mans winner among other things). For this pint-sized rendition, Ferrari’s Classiche department supplied the original design drawings of the Scaglietti-designed barchetta, and TLCC produced the bodywork via the original method of hand-beating sheet aluminium. The steering and suspension geometry have been replicated so that the J handles like the original, while Ferrari’s design centre, Centro Stile, signed off the Testa Rossa J’s final proportions, plus 14 historical liveries and 53 bodywork colours. Advertisement Power is provided by batteries and the range is “up to” 90 kilometres. The performance isn’t quite up to the V12 original but it’s quick enough. In Novice mode it peaks out at 20 km/h, Comfort gives 45 km/h, and there’s still Sport and Race modes beyond. Official top speed is given only as “above 60 km/h”, along with various legal disclaimers (the vehicle is not, of course, road registrable). Jamie Stevens from TLLC tells us production of 299 examples will begin early 2022, and “we do have some limited availability left to order”. Stevens also confirmed some examples are already destined for Australia. Prices start at €93,000 (about $143,400), ex factory. If that sounds like a lot, that’s because it is. But, by way of comparison, an original could be worth $US50 million ($66.4 million). Titan of the (Lego) world Here’s another brick-laying project. Sure, this one isn’t a car, but it contains one: the Titanic manifest listed a 1912 Renault Type CB Coupé de Ville owned by one William Carter of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. The 9000-piece Lego Titanic will keep your loved one busy long after Christmas. I haven’t been able to determine whether the 9000 pieces of this mega-Lego kit include all that is required to assemble said car and slide it into the cargo deck, but there should be plenty else to take up your time. The Lego Titanic is 1:200 scale and measures 135 cm from stem to stern. The hull breaks up into the three sections (without even needing to hit something), exposing various points of interest, such as the first-class dining room. There’s also an exposed engine room, with its pair of massive four-cylinder triple expansion steam engines sitting side by side. RRP is $999.99. Consider it a sunk cost. Channel your inner 007 James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 will make a welcome addition to his Scalextric set. Among all the merch accompanying the final Daniel Craig James Bond film – No Time to Die – is a Scalextric slot car of the Aston Martin DB5 that 007 uses in a chase scene (rego A426900). Strictly speaking, it’s a replica of a replica, since the producers didn’t want to bash up an original DB5 (now worth millions) and, anyway, even a very capable car from 1964 wouldn’t convincingly keep modern vehicles at bay, let alone leap through the air (and land in one piece). So eight film cars were built using carbon-fibre bodywork, rally suspension and high-performance BMW straight sixes. Scalextric has produced various DB5 slotties through the years. Our fairly basic silver No Time to Die model cost $76.10. Advertisement Rolls-Royce to the rescue Who among us doesn’t regularly think, after climbing into the back of our chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce, if only we had an all-in-one humidor and panier for fine whisky? Fortunately, the esteemed English carmaker is on top of this dilemma. Its Cellarette is now ready for you to gift to your nearest and dearest. The Rolls-Royce Cellarette is for the person who has (almost) everything. Designed to fit into the rear of any Rolls-Royce , or to use as a stand-alone accoutrement to the sort of upmarket soirées we can all now regularly host, the Cellarette packs together a Spanish Cedarwood-lined humidor (with hygrometer), a cigar cutter and lighter, handblown lowball glasses embossed with the Spirit of Ecstasy, and the panier, which is adjustable to suit whatever apéritif or digestif bottle you prefer. The whole box-and-dice (actually the dice are extra) is finished in exotic leathers, metals and woods, and features the sort of attention to detail you’d expect from the brand. Like the cars themselves, it can be tailored to your exact requirements. Available now through Australian dealerships, starting at around $80,000. Seriously chic Bugatti’s latest lifestyle collection includes a range for car-mad juniors – or simply stylish ones. Bugatti’s new lifestyle collection is out, including items apparently inspired by the Chiron, Divo, Centodieci and La Voiture Noire, plus models further back in the French brand’s illustrious history. It encompasses clothing, bags, gadgets and personal accessories aimed at all ages. They are purchased directly from Bugatti’s online store , and not as outlandishly priced as you might imagine. Though with the cars themselves costing millions apiece, your imagination might have gone quite a long way. The apparel starts at about €46 ($72) for a kid’s tee. Mercedes bends There is a theory that the best car to drive on a racetrack is someone else’s. It’s not even a theory. It’s a law. Track days are also a great chance to try machines you’ve dreamt of, and carmakers are increasingly using them to enthuse potential buyers about their upmarket models. With the country opening up, many are reviving programs that have been largely dormant since the sky fell in early last year. Advertisement Mercedes-AMG is in the process of finalising a tiered program for 2022 that allows people to experience a range of AMG models at the sort of extreme speeds they are capable of (though there’s a pecking order; spaces are offered to AMG owners first, then to regular Mercedes owners, then to the public). Treat him to a spin in the car of his dreams. Mercedes-AMG track days start from $2600. The pinnacle is the AMG International Driving Academy, which can put you (or your lucky Christmas gift recipient) in race cars, for training to professional level at places such as Hockenheim, the Nürburgring-Nordschleife and Spa-Francorchamps. You can start more modestly in Oz with a full-day racetrack experience, fanging up to four different AMGs including the $400K-or-so GTR coupe. Available through Mercedes-Benz dealerships, starting at about $2600. You know the Naim From female fragrances to wireless home speakers or headphones, Bentley has deluxe gifts covered. Bentley’s non-car offerings are broader than most, and include classy furniture as well as the usual clothing, watches and apparel. The Naim for Bentley Mu-so wireless home speaker and Focal for Bentley Radiance headphones incorporate various design cues and materials from the carmaker, including exotic woods and leathers. The famed Brit has also launched its first range of female fragrances. The floral scented Beyond trio – known as Mellow Heliotrope, Radiant Osmanthus and Vibrant Hibiscus – are contained in flacons said to bring to mind the cut crystal glass look of the Continental GT’s headlights. The suede on the cap is hand-stitched too. The Bentley Collection is available via the six Australian new car dealerships, though almost everything is POA. This is from Life & Leisure ’s 56-page bumper Christmas gift guide, out in print on Friday, December 3, inside The Australian Financial Review and in the AFR Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, December 4-5.
