Once they look the part, you can set them on their path to an F1 career with the exclusive Renault F1 Team pedal car (£95.00, for ages three plus). Renault F1 Team’s racing cars can reach a top speed of 228 mph, but the maximum speed of the pedal car depends on your own pedal power! Younger children aged 18 months plus can also have their own Renault F1 Team car which features electronic horn with four sounds and under seat storage and costs £25.00.
Now onto to presents you do need to pretend are for your kids. Hours of fun can be had with a Renault F1 Team scalextric. You know you don’t really need that extra bedroom in the loft conversion, why not invest in your own racing circuit instead! The Renault F1 Team scalextric is a good place to start costing £85.00 and coming with five metres of track and two F1 replica F1 cars.
Alternatively the remote control Renault F1 Team 1/10 car (£75.00) will let you show off your driving skills. It comes complete with two speeds and suspension and can reach speeds of up to 22mph. A battery pack is also included.
Think you’re the best driver in the world? But are you the most stylish? Now you can be by emulating the glamour of an F1 racing driver with your very own pair of exclusive Quicksilver ‘Alonso’ sunglasses as worn by Renault F1 Team driver Fernando Alonso in the Team’s successful 2004 season (£85.00).
PC’s also a passion? Make any desk into a motoring mad enthusiast’s dream with a Renault F1 Team wireless mouse which is shaped like a miniature Renault F1 Team car and combines speed and technology, and is suitable for left and right hand use. Costing £40.00 it is compatible with Windows 95, 98 and 2000 and is supplied with installation software and batteries. Complete the look with a Renault F1 Team mouse mat (£5.00) and a funky Renault F1 Team Light Pen (£3.00) with blue LED light and coloured 3D F1 car inside.
This is just a selection of gifts available via your local Renault dealer. Whether it’s exclusive luggage, watches or clothing, or the Gear Stick Radio (£20.00) which allows you to change station and volume via the gear stick, through to a Wheel Wall Clock (£25.00), you’re sure to find the perfect gift to suit.
