Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari watch

Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari watchHublot MP-05 LaFerrari watch

This is quite easily one of the most breathtaking watches we've ever seen. We honestly can't decide which is more intricate, the watch or the car it's based on! The bare mechanicals that are designed to replicate the internals of a Ferrari engine lokk absolutely exquisite. Only 50 were made and the fact that you could have a real supercar for what it costs helps it qualify for our list.

Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3Real Racing 3

This is without a doubt one of the most realistic racing games yet on any touch screen device. You have over 45 finely detailed cars that you can drive in a variety of racing styles. RR3 has been around for quite a while now but it's still one of the most realistic games on a portable platform. That fact that almost all of us still have it on one or more of our devices shows just how good it is. While free to download, Real Racing 3 is a freemium game that requires in-game purchases to enjoy the full experience.
Free on Android, iOS

V12 espresso machine

Espresso-Veloce-V12Espresso-Veloce-V12

Wouldn't you just love to get your morning's pick me up dispensed from a recreation of a V12? The only reason this machine has made it to our top five is because it is a ridiculously good looking creation. Its pretty accurate too and the oil filter actually functions as a grappa reservoir that helps dish out a steaming cup of café corretto.  We definitely would and if you're quick enough you can pick up one of a limited run of 500 of these beauties.
Price on request

Gibbs Quadski

The Quadski is a quad that doesn't stop when you hit the water's edge. The wheels simply fold up in a scant four seconds and the vehicle transforms into a jet ski. A 140PS BMW K1300 sourced engine makes it good for 72kmph on both land and water. The ability to keep going no matter what the obstacle ahead helps make it to this list
Rs 25 lakh approx gibbssports.com/quadski
