8 Spectacular Car Keychains You Need In Your Life - Car Throttle

Ever get your keys out of your pocket and wish you had something interesting to look at? Whether your pocket contains the key to a Chiron or a Civic - or no car at all - you need a cool car-related keychain or two (or three) in your life. Happily, the utterly magical CT Shop is stocked full of them.

Here are some of our favourites…

Gear shifter

Manual is best. You know that, I know that, and now, your friends will all know it too when they clock this nifty little six-speed shifter hanging off the key to your pride and joy. All six gears (plus reverse) can be selected, and it’s available in three different colours.

Note: Not suitable for Vin Diesel.

Coilover

If the gear selector doesn’t satisfy your need to fiddle, how about this? Available in five colours, this working coilover is weirdly satisfying to compress while you’re dreaming of your next real-life suspension upgrade.

Turbocharger

While we won’t recommend stickng an 850psi shot of nitrous through one of these, they are a cool accessory to have hanging off your keys. Choose from either the standard turbo, a turbo whistle, and - my personal favourite - the electric turbo.

Available with three different finishes, it charges via an included USB cable, and actually spins up, making a blow-off noise when you let go of the button. Neat.

Wheels

The split rim style keychain in the CT Shop looks great, but with five other wheel designs available, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding the right kind of rim for your keys.

Brake

This nifty brake disc looks cool enough on its own, but unlike whatever Jesse had fitted to his VW Jetta that time, this actually comes with a calliper. The disc moves freely through the calliper too, which is cool.

Blow-off valve

If the other items on this page seem a little obvious, this blow-off valve should be right up your street. What better way to tell who’s a petrolhead, and who isn’t? If your friends don’t know what it is, they’re no longer your friends. It’s better that way…

Piston

If the blow-off valve test seems a bit harsh, here’s a component we hope most should be able to identify. The piston keychain also comes with a moveable con rod for that extra little dash of detail.

Bucket seat

And finally, for some very simple, but very effective. This natty little red bucket seat keychain is perfect for adding a little colour to your humdrum bunch of keys.
