Cool car things we want: April 2018

29 Apr 2018 Features

Cool Kit April 2018 main

Turn up the decor in your home and on yourself with this gear you need, now

Beautiful posters, sharp timepieces, and even fine machined paddles for your dual-clutch shifters highlight the style that is available in this month's Cool Kit.

1 - PRODUCT OF THE MONTH: Thomas Sabo Watch ($549 from thomassabo.com)
It looks cool, but with a name like Rebel at Heart, this stainless steel timepiece better live up to its reputation. The minimalist design and deep-blue sunray dial back up the bold claim. 

2 - Crayon to CAD book ($120 from c2cpublishing.com.au)
Australian automotive designer, Paul Beranger, taps into a lifetime of experience to track the history of car design in Oz. The 336-page hardback book would look great on any coffee table.

3 - Racingling Silver DSG Paddles ($349 from hp.net.au)
Sick of plastic? Harding Performance has what you’re looking for with its CNC-machined billet aluminium paddles for Golf GTI/R and Polo. Extending the paddle size makes them easier to use.

4 - Honda Type R vest ($121 from merchandise.honda.com.au)
To celebrate claiming MOTOR Performance Car of the Year 2018, Honda has released a range of merchandise, including this puffer vest – which will come in handy on a chilly road trip.

5 - Porsche 959 poster ($60 from petrolicious.com)
London-based digital production studio INK, as a part of its plainbody series, has created a poster featuring the classic Dakar Rally Porsche 959. We need one on our office wall, now.

6 - RADO HyperChrome Captain Cook ($3175 from rado.com)
RADO’s HyperChrome Captain Cook range pays homage in name and design to a watch made by the company in 1962. It’s also water resistant to 200m and has a fabric bracelet.

7 - Raidillon gloves ($400 from raidillon-watches.com)
”These elegant and comfortable gloves, made of soft cognac-coloured lambskin, suit perfectly a Gentleman Driver’s lifestyle”... If you’re going to treat yourself, do it well.
