Christmas is just around the corner, and let’s face it, petrolheads are not easy folk to buy for. So to help you find something memorable for the car guy or girl in your life, we’ve plucked ten brilliant potential presents from the Car Throttle Shop for your viewing pleasure. And if you fancy grabbing something for yourself while we’re at it, we won’t judge…
We all have that one friend who thinks highly of their driving. Now, there’s a hoodie just for them, or if you think they’d prefer, a T-shirt.
Optioning a head-up display on a brand new car can cost hundreds or even thousands. Happily, aftermarket options like this brilliant plug and play OBD II-compatible HUD is considerably less. It can display speed, RPM, water temperature and more. The only downside here is your petrolhead friend or family member may end up disappearing onto those quiet Christmas Day roads to try out his or her new gadget…
Using a powerful magnet, this handy product from Mega Mounts will have your phone securely fixed in place in mere seconds. And yes, we’ve tested these, and confirm it’s more than up to the task of keeping hold of your phone during a hard launch!
Going a step further than the OBD II HUD we looked at earlier, this UltraGauge Scan Tool is able to display 78 different standardised measurements like boost pressure, intake air temperature and throttle position. If the petrolhead you’re buying for has a track car, they’ll love this.
Petrolhead-friendly gifts needn’t be expensive. If you’re cutting back on Christmas spending or just want a stocking filler for someone, look no further than these humourous passenger warning stickers, of which there are several designs to choose from.
Keeping with the affordable theme, we have this spark plug-shaped keychain, which doubles as a torch. Handy!
Scented candles for car people? You’d better believe it. There are multiple varieties available, including premix and diesel. The perfect way to remove the stench of turkey and Brussels sprouts from your home….
If you know someone who drives an older car but longs for the joys of Bluetooth, look no further than this little beauty. It’s the world’s smallest Bluetooth receiver, and is extremely easy to use.
George Michael once warned us against giving someone our heart for Christmas. A T-shirt with a heart emblem made from two turbos, then, is a fine and stylish gift that avoids any chance of betrayal and emotional torment. Winner.
Want to get something a little warmer? You can get the turbo heart design on a hoodie too.
We’ve saved the best until last. This is the option to go for if you simply can’t decide what to get that awesome car person in your life, as we’ve done all the hard work for you. Each Car Throttle Christmas Box is stuffed full with a selection of goodies, from clothing to tools and gadgets.
