Cufflinks by GTO London – Click above for high-res image

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 specialists GTO 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. UPDATE: Additional high-resolution images added to the gallery below.

      I would rather have a set of 'Z51' cufflinks with a Goodyear Eagle Gatorback imprinted on it.

      thanks venom
      we are a luxury brand offering handmade jewellery and leather ware. we have created most of our items themed on Ferrari cars but also offer a number of generic designs such as the tyre tread, carb trumpet and spinner. we are not selling to the buyers of Ferrari hats and t-shirts, we are in touch with those who appreciate extreme detail and precision in a handmade piece, plus something a bit different. we have an English footballer wearing our cufflinks which may help prove the point.
      we also offer a bespoke service which can create jewellery and leather ware entirely to your requirements. please take the time to look at our impressive website.
