2 CUBA’S CAR CUL­TURE

Fol­low­ing the coup per­pe­trated by com­mu­nist rebels in 1959, Cuba’s once rich ap­petite for new cars sud­denly ceased due to trade em­bar­gos en­forced by the regime. As a re­sult, Cuba’s car cul­ture has been uniquely and ad­versely af­fected, and this very in­ter­est­ing book looks at the au­to­mo­tive land­scape of this time-warped coun­try. $45 bit.ly/CUBACAR

3 VIP TRACKER

We’ve all had that mo­ment where we’ve parked our pride and joy in a dodgy part of town, started to walk away from it and thought “If it was ever go­ing get pur­loined, it’d be now”. Well, now you can fit your car with this GPS tracker that can not only track your car via an app, but you can also re­motely cut power to the starter motor from your phone! What a great idea! $199 bit.ly/GPSVIPTR

4 RAMBO LAMBO

When most peo­ple hear the word Lamborghini, they usu­ally imag­ine su­per wide rear tyres, mas­sive wings, matte paint and scis­sor doors. What they don’t think of is a mil­i­tary style 4x4 SUV bear­ing the badge of the rag­ing bull, but that’s ex­actly what the LM002 was, and Match­box have de­cided to cel­e­brate with a model that you and the kids can both en­joy. $6.99 toyrus.com.au
