The Ferrari 330 P4 Le Mans Racer is Within Your Budget If Size Doesn't Matter

The Ferrari 330 P4 Le Mans Racer is Within Your Budget If Size Doesn’t Matter

It’s not the car you’re buying, but it’s close enough

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

Lamborghini’s Idea of a Christmas Present is a $56,000 Timepiece

Say hello to the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracan STO

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

Forget Every Christmas Gift Idea You Have and Just Buy the Lego Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

Who cares if it’s a late holiday present, right?

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

This Batmobile Desk Clock is the Perfect Holiday Gift if You Have Bottomless Pockets

It costs the same as a Ford Mustang — a real Ford Mustang

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?

Porsche's New Partnership with PUMA is all the Sneaker Hype You Need on a Monday

Porsche’s New Partnership with PUMA is all the Sneaker Hype You Need on a Monday

Don’t expect all 500 pairs of this sneaker collection to last long

The Porsche 911 Turbo is arguably one of the most iconic cars in history. A car of that stature doesn’t just stay a car; its name lives on in other ways like, say, a limited-edition sneaker line that comes courtesy of Porsche’s partnership with sports apparel company PUMA.

The two German brands are teaming up to create this line of special edition shoes to celebrate the legend of the 911 Turbo. Only 500 pairs of shoes will be created across the entire size range, and if you’re looking to score a pair, you best be quick about it. The range will launch on November 17, 2020, and if it’s as hyped as we think it is, those 500 pairs will be gone faster than the 992-generation 911 Turbo can hit a quarter-mile. That’s 10.1 seconds at 137 mph, by the way.

There's No Outrunning Nostalgia With This Sit-Down Arcade Cabinet

There’s No Outrunning Nostalgia With This Sit-Down Arcade Cabinet

It’ll only take one sitting to get make you remember the golden age arcade video games

Back in the 1980s when every kid could be spotted in an arcade parlor during weekends, Sega’s OutRun was one of the most popular go-to machines. Whether it was the stand-up cabinet versions of the more elaborate sit-down versions, OutRun had plenty of fans.

That’s important to note because while arcade parlors are no longer around, the game is making a comeback courtesy of Arcade1Up. The direct-to-consumer arcade builder is offering a limited number of OutRun sit-down arcade cabinets — in all their 8-bit glory — that you can order for just $499. We don’t need to tell you that it’s a great Christmas gift for your beloved, especially if he/she grew up chugging cans of Tab, using hair spray on their hair, and running through a piggy bank’s worth of quarters in these arcade parlors.

You Have to Check Out The Ninebot Electric Gokart on Indiegogo

Less than 1,000 left up for grabs if you want one

Go-karts seem to have remained unchanged for years and the same applies to those so-called leisure karts you can rent and turn a few laps in at your local kart-o-drome. That’s why the Ninebot Gokart PRO developed by Segway feels like a breath of fresh air.

With a range of 15.5 miles on one battery charge, an output of up to 4,800 W (6.43 horsepower) and 70.8 pound-feet of torque, and a top speed of up to 23 mph with drift mode included the Gokart PRO is a massive evolution over the company’s Go-Kart Kit with Mini PRO that we’ve seen before. The good news is that enough people have backed this project for it to make it into production but no more than about 1,000 units will be made.

Introducing the DB5 Junior - Aston Martin’s Newest Electric Model

Aston Martin just introduced an all-electric version of the DB5. Wait; what? Wasn’t the DB5 discontinued back in 1965? Yes, it was, although the company built an additional 25 chassis in 2020, but this EV is not an authentic DB5. It’s a two-thirds scale version of the iconic grand tourer. It’s called the DB5 Junior to reflect its smaller scale, and it’s being built in cooperation with The Little Car Company.
