The Weird and Wonderful Manufacturer Merchandise

Author: Sam Allibone


Most manufacturers have a line of merchandise available for the enthusiast, from the obligatory mug to the branded baseball cap - but there are a few odd offerings amongst the normal.

Volkswagen Merchandise

Volkswagen, one of the biggest German car producers, has an extensive list of merchandise on their website. Within the plethora of products a, shall we say unusual GTI branded baseball cap will set you back £18, a GTI branded tie £22, or for the lovers of the old-style campervan, egg holders are available for £16. Love rubber ducks? Great, because Volkswagen have their very own GTI Rubber Duck for the very reasonable price of £6.50 – a steal from the upmarket German car giant.

Land Rover Merchandise

Land Rover – luxury cars mean luxury items. From the super expensive Heritage Trunk (£1,500) and £395 pens to the Range Rover shaped paperclips (£10), the luxury SUV maker provides a true range of products. One of the wackiest in the store is the Range Rover Evoque shaped wireless mouse – it has a scroll wheel implanted into the bonnet, which is split in to two sections for full usability. Even the headlights work – and for £40, you might expect them to.

BMW Merchandise

BMW, another giant, also has an extensive array of merchandise available. At £10 cheaper, the BMW i8 or X6 wireless mouse looks better value for money than the Land Rover equivalent, but if you aren’t strapped for cash then you may require the BMW Money Clips. The manufacturer also corners the entertainment market with its range of puzzles, such as the 3D BMW Z4 set, but the finest is the BMW Quartet Card Game – essentially top trumps for petrolheads.

Audi Merchandise

Audi also partake in the merchandise department with an abundance of stock – so much so that a gift card of £25 - £150 can be purchased. This will help the recipient buy anything, from a £38 Audi Sport Stunt Kite to a £220 Children’s Scooter and Balance Bike or 3 Audi Golf balls for £8.50. None of these compare, however, to the ultimate in Audi travelware – an In-Car Espresso Machine. Clearly the staple in any Audi enthusiast’s collection, £187 buys the espresso machine, two cups, 18 illy pads, a cleaning cloth and a fancy Audi-embossed storage bag.

Ford Merchandise

Ford has a host of collections dedicated to certain lines, such as Ford ST, Ford RS and Ford Heritage. Each contain a few extravagant options, such as the seasonal £80 Ford Sledge, questionably stylish £9 Ford Sport Hip Bag and entertaining £6 Ford Fidget Spinner in the Ford Basic collection. But nothing quite compares to the £400 Ford Mustang GT Go-Kart, a pedal-powered bright yellow gift for 4 to 12-year olds.

Mercedes-Benz Merchandise

Mercedes-Benz offer a unique choice of giftware too. From a £30 set of nail varnish to a £126 children’s suitcase in the shape of a G-Class, there are many gift ideas in the store for the avid enthusiast. You can even buy male and female fragrances from £65, but the real cake-topper is the pair of G-Class Plush Slippers, a reasonable £40 and surely a welcome addition to any home.
