Cufflinks by GTO London
Ferrari is as much a lifestyle entity as an auto manufacturer, putting its name on everything from wristwatches to theme parks. Still, not everything imbued with the Cavallino spirit comes out of Maranello's marketing department. Case in point: the lineup from GTO London. An offshoot of vintage Ferrari specialistsGTO Engineering, GTO London offers a range of Ferrari-inspired, if not necessarily licensed, paraphernalia.
The collection includes such items as cufflinks, keychains, tie pins and wallets, all styled along the lines of classic Ferraris and inspired by the marque's most legendary automobiles. Design flourishes range from steering wheels and shift gates to carb trumpets and connecting rods, realized in leather, silver, gold and "real Ferrari metal" reclaimed from the workshop's restoration projects. They may not be for everyone, but for the gentleman motorist with a soft sport for Maranello's finest, they're sure to make a welcome gift this coming holiday season.
