Father’s Day 2018: A CarAdvice gift guide


In the case of the DB5, you’ll find a full suite of working features from the iconic Bond adventure, Goldfinger, including revolving number plates, front machine guns, and even a fully functional passenger ejector seat. Classic Aston details like the inline six-cylinder engine aren’t left out either. Available from Lego.

If you dad has the patience of a saint and a little more spare time on his hands, perhaps the 3599 piece Bugatti Chiron model would be more his thing, complete with W16 engine with moving pistons, replica Chiron wheels, a switchable active rear wing accessible via an included ‘top speed key’ and a unique under-bonnet serial number.

Consider this one the ultimate test of your papa’s patience… If you’ve left him with any to begin with – also available from Lego.

If you thought Lego was the only construction kit worthy of your car-loving dad’s time, guess again. Meccano throws its hat into the ring this father’s day and if supercars aren’t your old man’s favourite, maybe he’d like his own Silverado instead?

Complete with opening doors and bonnet, and working suspension. Tradie dads might not be able to get their hands on the real thing, but hopefully this will do the trick in the meantime. Visit Hobby Warehouse for more info.
