Best Christmas gifts for petrolheads 2017

The latest and greatest presents for car enthusiasts


AlcoSense Pro

AlcoSense Pro

Price £149.99

We all know you should never drive after drinking but Christmas parties can mean hitting the road the day after. Make sure you’re not still over the limit with one of these breathalysers, which comes with a police-grade sensor to ensure accuracy.


RoadAngel Pure speed camera detector

RoadAngel Pure

Price £249.99

RoadAngel is famed for its radar detectors that alert drivers to mobile police speed guns. The new Pure has radar detection built in but its primary function, says the company, is to save drivers from fines by alerting them to changing speed limits in an age of average speed cameras and smart motorways, with live data coming via the airwaves. A new bright screen is designed to be visible even in bright sunlight on the dashboard. Sadly it’s not available until just after Christmas, but you could print off an IOU for the recipient until it arrives through the post.

Available for pre-order here with deliveries from January
