There is still a couple of months away, but Mercedes UK decided to reveal its catalog for the new year so people would have enough time choosing their desired items.

There really is something for everyone with a variety of high-octane experiences for both kids and adults. Whether it’s the first time behind the wheel for kids, or a dad’s dream-come-true to drive a supercar on a track, these are the most brilliant gifts you can think of. Of course there is the usual range of plastic toy cars and teddy bears with Mercedes logo on them.

Mercedes-Benz World is located at Brooklands, the spiritual home of British motor racing, where specially designed tracks, a state-of-the-art 360 degree skid pan and extensive challenging off-road terrain to put cars and drivers to the test. That’s how I want to spend my holidays!
