10 Ways to Decorate Your Car this Christmas
Christmas is just around the corner and it’s about time we start decorating our houses and putting up those Christmas trees. Decorating cars for Christmas has become a trend too and if you’re planning to do that, here’s a list of 10 car decorations that you can buy.
The Ferrari 330 P4 Le Mans Racer is Within Your Budget If Size Doesn’t Matter
The Ferrari 330 P4 stands as one of the most iconic Ferraris of all time. It’s certainly one of the rarest as only one original 330 P4 — chassis 0856 — is said to still exist. Last we heard, it’s owned by a Canadian collector, and if that collector decided to put the car up for sale, it could become the most expensive Ferrari of all time.
Acquiring the only remaining 330 P4 is a pipe dream for almost all of us, but if you’re suffering from a severe case of FOMO, you can still take ownership of a Ferrari 330 P4 courtesy of Amalgam Collection. It’s a lot cheaper, too, at just $1,358, though, I suppose, for a 1:18 scale model, that’s a premium price for the item that you’re buying. Either way, you get to go home with a Ferrari 330 P4. It’s 1/18th the size of the real one, but we’ll take our victories where we can get them.
Lamborghini’s Idea of a Christmas Present is a $56,000 Timepiece
It’s called the Excalibur Spider Huracan STO, and yes, it’s heavily inspired by the Huracan STO, the raunchiest and most expensive of Huracan models in the market today. It’s not going to help you go from 0 to 60 mph, but the Excalibur Huracan STO does have the ability to tell you the time for a cost of “only” $56,000. That’s Chevrolet Corvette C8 money. For a watch. Oh, to be rich and extravagant…
Forget Every Christmas Gift Idea You Have and Just Buy the Lego Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
Sometime during the upcoming holiday season, I’m going to make time to go through my growing pile of Lego boxes. I’m going to need to go through them quickly because come January 1, 2021, Lego’s going to be taking more of my money once the $169 Technic Ferrari 488 GTE goes on sale. But that’s not the only Lego kit dropping that day. The Technic McLaren Senna will also hit stores, and as if those two kits weren’t enough, Lego announced that it’ll also drop the newly-revealed Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon kit. The drops are happening at the turn of the new year, which, I suppose is a good thing. There’s no better way to say goodbye to the shit show that was 2020 by rolling up our sleeves and building Lego kits to kick-off 2021. The Wrangler Rubicon kit, in particular, looks like a fun project. Plus, at just $49.99, it’s a lot cheaper than the $169.99 price tag of the 488 GTE kit.
This Batmobile Desk Clock is the Perfect Holiday Gift if You Have Bottomless Pockets
I’d like to imagine a day when someone near and dear to me gives me a gift like this scale replica of the 1989 Batmobile that’s been repurposed as a desk clock. Not only will it look really good on my desk, but it’d be another physical manifestation of my obsessive love for the Dark Knight. It’d also be a fancy addition to my unhealthy collection of Batman memorabilia, but am I expecting to receive this Batmobile desk clock as a gift this Christmas? No, I am not, and there’s one obvious reason for that. It costs $29,900. I’d probably have a bigger chance of seeing a slimmed-down, Covid-19-free Santa Claus sliding down my chimney than being on the receiving end of the Batmobile desk clock. Then again, 2020 has been weird for all sorts of reasons. It’s not too much of an ask to hope for one, right?
