Christmas is coming up fast and that means you have to start buying gifts for people. Luckily, I acquired a copy of lifestyle magazine Town and Country (not the Chrysler product) and they have a few perfectly sensible automotive gift ideas for the car person in your life. After all, car enthusiasts are sometimes hard to shop for. Here are a few excerpts from their guide.

At only $445,750, the Rolls-Royce Dawn is the first suggestion. Town and Country suggests that the Dawn is perfect for the Miami to Palm Beach commute. I think the Dawn is ideal for anyone who needs to make the leisurely drive into town to board an unmarked cargo plane after they’ve been ousted from their seat of power by an expertly executed coup. Either way, the wide range of colors and drop-top ought to please anyone who wants something just a little high-end.


Mercedes’ AMG-GT C is the next gift idea on the list and with a list price of $157,000, it’s a real bargain. This biturbo V8-powered convertible is really a great choice for anyone whose commute involves driving at three times the speed limit. And really, who doesn’t want a big yellow convertible for Christmas?

Everyone needs a car to get from their beach house in Los Angeles to their other beach house in Los Angeles. Town and Country’s third perfectly sensible suggestion is the Ferrari 488 Spider. Really, they couldn’t have picked a better car for last minute holiday shopping. It has so much going for it. It’s only $277,685 and it’s fast enough to get you to your thoroughbred horse stable in case one of them gets sick.


Nothing says “Texas Tailgate” like a British luxury convertible. That’s why the Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible is the next great gift idea. We’ve all been there; you need to host a tailgate in the parking lot of one of the several stadiums you own and you need to impress the boys. Don’t worry, Bentley has you covered with their $322,600 convertible. I know I’m going to ask for one.


I think Town and Country picked a great lineup. What are you shopping for this holiday season?
