Mechanical gear rose gold cufflinks
You don’t have to be a fan of planetary gears to appreciate these intricate cufflinks, featuring fine, wire-cut cogs that rotate within a rose gold-covered gear. Racing enthusiasts will appreciate the carbon fibre backing (to save weight, of course).
The classic spherical gearknob has been recreated for your wrist, complete with five-speed pattern, plus reverse. This pair of rhodium cufflinks strike a balance between affordability and sports car style.
Bluebird K7 cufflinks
These cufflinks may not come from a car, but they do commemorate one of Britain’s greatest land speed record breakers. Donald Campbell set multiple water speed records in his revolutionary jet-powered Bluebird K7 boat, and was attempting another on Coniston Water when the craft flipped, killing its pilot and sinking to the bottom of the water.
It was recovered in 2001 and restored, with a portion of the unused salvaged aluminium being combined with sterling silver to make these unique cufflinks in the shape of K7. They come in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity signed by Campbell’s daughter, Gina.
The Driver’s Society | Borrani 2 Ear Spinner | Cufflinks
Not only are these elegant cufflinks a replica of the famous Borrani wheels, but they are also made out of the aluminium from the original Borrani wheels.
With their light weight and incredible detail, they are the ideal gift for any fan of classic motoring.
Bentley original engine part cufflinks
The Bentley S2 was made for three years in the late 1950s and early 1960s, powered by a then-new aluminium V8 engine, developed with Rolls-Royce.
Now, 60 years on, bearings from that engine have been re-made into these industrial but stylish brass-mounted cufflinks, which bear the stamps that validated parts at the time.
Personalised tax disc cufflinks
Their appeal is likely to be entirely lost on a new generation of drivers who’ve known nothing except digital car records, but many will feel a nostalgic glow at the sight of the now-defunct tax disc.
Each one can be personalised with a date, car make, registration number and price to celebrate a particular anniversary or a fondly-remembered car.
Personalised number plate cufflinks
With ten characters available, you can choose the personalised plate that you, or a loved one, has always wanted for a fraction of the price of a real one.
Each set includes a white front and yellow rear plate, or two white cufflinks and there’s also the option of a metal engraved box to make it an even more special gift.
Bentley Blower cufflinks
Celebrate the might of the Bentley’ Boys’ supercharged green “lorry” with these hand-painted metal cufflinks for just 25.
Vintage racing car silver cufflinks
Evoking 1950s grand prix racers, this British-made solid silver set of cufflinks has a hand-enamelled finish and come in a luxury box with a hallmark certificate.
Jaguar E-type upcycled cufflinks
Once described as “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari, these cufflinks replicate the Jaguar E-type. Not just that, but there are only 750 pairs in existence as they are made from the aluminium pistons of a 1961 series 1, fixed head coupe Jaguar E-type.
Jet engine cufflinks
These intricately engineered cufflinks whir into action when blown on or moved; the fins spinning with all of their mini might. They are made of aircraft grade aluminium too, so the hard knocks of life should be no problem for these tiny turbines.
Concorde reclaimed aluminium cufflinks
Concorde can no longer carry you in the air, but you can still take a part of it with you, thanks to these cufflinks that use reclaimed aluminium from one of the fleet, a pre-production craft with the registration G-AXDN. That code is etched onto each of the limited edition run of 4,500.
