12 Terrible Presents No Petrolhead Wants This Christmas

If your loved ones have bought you a car-themed gift this Christmas, you'll hope it's not one of these

Remind me later
Main featured christmas gifts The festive day is now upon us, and your friends and relatives will no doubt have thought hard about what gift to buy you. They know you're a car guy, so will have shopped accordingly. However well-meaning they are though, it's possible they'll have made a shockingly poor choice. To show you just how wrong people can get it, we've compiled a list of spectacularly lame (and some slightly fictitious) presents. Let's hope you don't open any of these!

1. Carbonfibre Ferrari Cufflinks

Ferrari cufflinks These cufflinks manage to be both tacky and stupidly expensive. You'll look like a tool wearing these if you don't own a Ferrari, and probably an even bigger tool if you do. Price: £100+

2. Prius T-Shirt

i_love_my_prius_shirt-r18a670e4340245c4a94442c3483a29a5_804gs_512 It's hard to think of anything more offensive to a petrolhead than a T-shirt with the world's most boring car plastered on the front. Price: £20

3. 200mph On DVD

200Mph dvd This laughably bad film is probably the worst car movie ever made. Created by The Asylum, the studio that brought you delights such as Titanic 2 and Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus, this train-wreck of a film was released as a 'mockbuster' to cash in on release of Fast Five. Price: £10 (about £10 too much)

4. Driving Tuition With Pastor Maldonado

pastor-maldonado-lesson There are lots of driving experience gifts out there, but having the chance to be tutored by the crashiest driver in F1 since Taki Inoue takes some beating. Disclaimer: We may have made this one up a bit... Price: If it existed, probably quite expensive.

5. French Fries Holder

Hot-SHUNWEI-SD-1020-Universal-Car-French-Fry-Holder-Black If not having anywhere to put your fries while you drive is a frequently-occurring problem, that's probably a sign that you need to cut down on the fast food. Price: £5

6. Headlight Eyelashes

car-eyelashes If there were a prize for the worst car accessory ever, these hideous things would win it. Price: £10

7. Car-Themed Socks

Picture 25 Socks with pictures of cars on them are the least-fashionable item of clothing ever. Even us unfashionable car guys know that much... Price: £3-10

8. Sebastian Vettel 'Finger' Phone Cover

9. Car-Branded Fragrances

VTEC aftershave OK, so we may have made this particular fragrance up, but any car-branded perfume (Ferrari, Bentley and Cadillac sell them, to name but a few) is properly lame. Price: £10-70

10. Porsche Design Chopsticks

Picture 26 Ever wanted to combine your love of Southeast Asian food and Porsches? Well, now you can. (Except that you shouldn't!) Price: £60

11. Big Rigs Video Game

5157C0BEAKL There are plenty of shoddy racing games out there, but this has to be the worst. If you've not heard of Big Rigs, the video below will give you all the confirmation you need. Video Price: £5 or under in the 'bargain' bin

12. An Actual Prius

Toyota Prius 2010 Prius T-shirt not offensive enough for you? If you're from a rich family, just imagine getting an actual Prius for Christmas. Bad times. Price: £22,000 If you can think of any other presents no petrolhead should receive this Christmas, let us all know in the comments section.
