Luxury gift ideas guide: Bugatti Veyron

Call them absurd, call them over-the-top, call them unobtainable. The items on this list are all of these things, but they also share another thread: They’re all awesome. The best tech gifts and gadgets under $200 might make a more practical read, but the gifts making up this list are all things you wish you could get, but probably won’t. It’s certainly fun to dream for “some day,” though, isn’t it?

Bugatti-VeyronBugatti Veyron, $2,000,000

The epitome of automotive excellence in both luxury and performance, the Bugatti Veyron (named after Pierre Veyron who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1939) is probably more beast than machine, and stands as a true hallmark in automotive engineering. All of the numbers attached to the Veyron are simply staggering: a top speed of 266 mph, over 1,000 horsepower, and probably most astounding, a $2 million sticker price.

Zafirro-Iridium-RazorZafirro Iridium Razor, $100,000

Anything but your standard razor, the Zafirro Iridium razor is comprised of pure sapphire blades that are impervious to oxidation and corrosion. According to Zafirro, the blades remain incredibly sharp by using high-energy ionized particles, creating a blade edge that is 5,000 times thinner than human hair. The company even offers a 20-year warranty to make sure your razor stays on the cutting edge of performance – and for $100,000, we think they should.

For many, Earth, not space is the final frontier.The vast majority of us will likely never leave our little green rock we call home, travel to the moon, or other far off planets. However, there is hope for those would-be adventurers seeking an out-of-this world experience. Those lucky few with big dreams (and bigger pockets) have a chance to make their dream reality and hop aboard Virgin Galactic’s space flights. Tickets cost $200,000 and require a $20,000 deposit.

inuke-boom-xlBehringer iNuke Boom, $30,000

If you look close (and yes, you have to look close to see it), that is an iPhone docked atop the massive, and we do mean massive, Behringer iNuke Boom. Costing a whopping $30,000, pumping out 10,000 watts, and weighing over 700 pounds, we doubt Santa will be able to carry this on his sleigh, let alone get it through the chimney.

dr.dre.goldCrystal Rocked gold-plated Beats by Dre $2,300
