#1 1977 Porsche 935 & Transporter
Those with a spare spot in their garage need only apply. This Porsche 935 race car and Transporter package is as complete as a vintage race team comes. The car itself comes from Norm Goldrich’s team who raced the car for several years during the late 70s. The engine has been converted to a 3.2-litre turbo with 610hp which was good enough for 290km/h speeds. The oldschool transporter is a custom-built hauler based on a Mercedes-Benz Porsche model complete with a 1.5 tonne lifting hydraulic and soundproofed alloy construction.
Arcade machines are a fine addition to any man’s space but when there’s little space and only one man to lift it up the stairs, that can be a real issue. Polycade is your childhood dreams brought to the 21st century, a modern arcade unit which mounts to walls and boasts a 28-inch LED screen in a slick design. There’s an integrated 8-way control for up to two players or a 4-way one player format for older games. An 8GB SD card is more than enough to look after close to 100 emulator games. You can also select your choice of finish on the professionally crafted cabinet in either vinyl graphics or solid paint. The system is also upgradable to ensure your machine is future-proof.
#3 Jellyfish Cylinder Nano Aquarium
For the man with little space and patience for pets, get yourself the gift of jellyfish – they do absolutely nothing except look damn cool. The very cool Nano Aquarium comes with everything you need for the jellyfish to survive including filtration, food, lighting and a 30-day life insurance policy on their survival. Peanut butter jelly time.
#4 Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Century Whiskey
A special occasion calls for a special drink. That occasion is Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday and the drink is Jack Daniels. And it’s a special one at that, with the Jack Daniels Sinatra Century Whiskey featuring the finest blend from selected barrels by Master Distiller Jeff Arnett. It’s Sinatra-approved too with the blend having been tasted by members of the family. The bottle will come in a luxury gift box along with previously unreleased Sinatra tracks.

#6 Zarooq Sand Racer
Dune buggys have been around for a while but rarely do they get to enjoyed on the public roads. The Zaroog Sand Racer from UAE is looking to change this with an off-roader packing 500hp going straight to the rear wheels. The name of the game? Endless hours of sliding fun through the sand dunes. The car’s ride height sits at 12.4-inches to ensure ample clearance whilst Fox shocks, air conditioning and a six-speed automatic transmission guarantees you off-roading credentials.
