3 car-related gifting ideas for the young and aspiring motorhead for 2017

No reason why you can’t fuel that passion from a young age.

1. For the teen: Storck Fascenario.3 Aston Martin Edition

Your teenage petrolhead may not yet be able to get behind the wheel of his favourite car but Aston Martin will let him get on the road anyway. Working with German bicycle manufacturer Storck, the Brit auto marque has produced the Storck Fascenario.3 Aston Martin Edition. Available in only 107 units, the exclusive road bike sports a frame and forks made from the latest advancements in carbon fibre and aerodynamics, which results in a very lightweight bicycle of only 5.9kg. Not to worry because this ride is far from fragile, having undergone industry testing standards to prove the durability of the frames.

2. For the toddler: McLaren P1 “foot-to-floor” edition

Since McLaren is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its iconic supercar, the P1, the Brit supercar manufacturer is extending the well-loved range with “alternative-fuelled” versions — to be powered by little humans. Available as a “foot-to-floor” edition recommended for drivers under three-years-old, and an electric Ride-On for older tots, the collection also includes a Tecnomodel resin collectible. Each car will come bathed in a Volcano Yellow colour.

3. For the young lady: Volkswagen Swarovski Necklace with Charms

Who says cars are just for the boys? Volkswagen has released a series of sparkling accessories for the young ladies too. For the festive season, Volkswagen UK has a range of decorations and gifts surrounding its iconic cars, such as the adorably classic Volkswagen Beetle. Working with Swarovski, the German carmaker has designed a light blue-coloured necklace with three charms: A T1 campervan, a Beetle and a turquoise-coloured suitcase. Each piece features Swarovski stones and are made from stainless steel with a karabiner-style clasp.
