Unique Aston Martin Inspired Christmas Gift ideas
Aston Martin – iPhone / iPod Dock
Do you have someone on your Christmas list that is just plain hard to buy for; the person who has everything and the money to buy it? Oh but wait, you know they are an Aston Martin road and racing car enthusiast that already has (well almost) everything. What do you do ?
Now, the world renowned London-based Aston Martin Heritage specialists, Nicholas Mee & Co. has come up with the ultimate Christmas gift ideas for the racing car enthusiasts. Nicholas Mee & Co has entered into an exclusive relationship with artisan engineers “Racing Gold” to “upcycle” auto parts once used in Aston Martin racing or road cars to create clean and modern furniture pieces.
The classic British sports car company and has come up with a new way of refurbishing parts that were once junkyard bound making them into beautiful and functional pieces.
Performance Artworks (P.Arts), the brand name, has a talented design team chosen for the project. Bursting with ideas, they have started by creating four stunning Aston Martin items which include:
· “Brake caliper” iPhone / iPod dock (compatible with iPhones 4, 4S and 5, and recent iPods. With its in-built phonic transfer speaker, the caliper’s mass enhances low frequency sounds through the table’s surface. Lithium ion battery plus charging and audio leads supplied. Available in a range of colors.)
· “Crankshaft’ coffee table (“upcycled” from an Aston Martin GT4 race car, with a stamp for authenticity and a brake disc and brake bell from the same car. Standing 65cm tall, it is currently fitted with a 65cm diameter glass top, but if required the dimensions of the top can be altered to individual requirements.)
· “Propshaft” coat stand (crafted using “upcycled” components from an Aston Martin GT4 race car including two reengineered and refurbished wheel rims that have been chrome polished for a stunning appearance, relocated wheel nuts that have also been chrome polished, a previously raced brake disc and brake bell, and the upstanding, refurbished carbon fibre propshaft. It stands 165cm tall with the ‘wheel’ base being 50cm in diameter. The coat-hook wheelrim has 15 spokes.)
· “Tweed covered” racing seat (a period bucket seat that was previously used in a period Aston Martin racing car has been exquisitely trimmed in official Aston Martin Racing/Hackett ‘Prince of Wales’ tweed. The legs of this highly comfortable yet practical 95cm tall chair have been engineered to replicate the look of the spokes of a Nardi wooden steering wheel common to many Heritage Aston Martins.)
Furniture made from previously used components has always fascinated auto enthusiasts and the exquisite yet practical furniture item would make the perfect gift !
