Big buck Christmas

CityPress - - News -

Are you a ten­der­preneur with big bucks but are stuck for a bit of Christmas shop­ping in­spi­ra­tion? There’s a whole lot you can get with a whole lot of money.

Like a pri­vate is­land in Fiji, for in­stance, which can be yours for a cool R347 mil­lion.

The 91ha Katafanga is­land in the South Pa­cific, sit­u­ated in the Blue La­goon area, is one of the last pri­vate is­lands avail­able for pur­chase in the ar­chi­pel­ago.

But to get there, you’ll prob­a­bly need a plane. So why not splurge on a rose-gold pri­vate Cobalt ValkyrieX jet?

It’s one of the fastest pis­ton air­craft in the world, able to hit a top speed of 370km/h. For­tu­nately, it’s cheaper than the is­land at nearly R21 mil­lion and can seat three pas­sen­gers and a pi­lot.

If you pre­fer to get your kicks on terra firma, opt in­stead for a Koenigsegg CCXR Tre­vita, which costs R20.8 mil­lion – be­cause every­one th­ese days has a Maserati.

The Koenigsegg is the most ex­pen­sive car in the world and is clad in glit­ter­ing white car­bon fi­bre. Power is not a prob­lem, with a 4.8 litre en­gine pro­duc­ing 745kW of power. Only three have ever been made.

But if that’s still too much, per­haps a trip to the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles for that special some­one would hit the spot?

Just R6.9 mil­lion can buy you two tick­ets for an un­be­liev­able week­end away at the Gram­mys in Fe­bru­ary. You’ll hob­nob with some of the mu­sic in­dus­try’s big­gest stars, stay at the Penin­sula Bev­erly Hills ho­tel, go back­stage and take home a gold Gib­son gui­tar, the Daily Mail re­ports.

You can pur­chase this in­cred­i­ble is­land in Fiji for R347 mil­lion
