This one didn't make the list for some reason.

This one didn't make the list for some reason.

What do we want for the holidays?  Ah, alas we are very complicated creatures here at ESM.  We don’t want too much, but we definitely know what we want – and it ain’t cheap.

Below is a top ten compilation of things that would be great surprises underneath our tree this year:

10. A Vertu Phone
Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Impractical this, expensive that.  I don’t care if we just came from a recession.  I just want a gold plated and diamond encrusted phone to make overly priced calls with.  Actually, make mine the Ascent Ti Nurburgring edition.

9. A Vintage Motorcycle Jacket
Because it’s never too late to look like Steve McQueen.

8. The Ducati Streetfighter
Because you need the matching bike to the motorcycle jacket.  Not to mention it is one of the sickest bikes in existence.

7. The Ecosse Motorworks Heretic
Because your want your friends to ride with you.

6. The CDC ’67 Flashback
Because you want a Steve McQueen-themed Christmas.

5. A Rolex Daytona in White Gold
Stainless?  What am I, a farmer?

4. The Riva 68′ Ego Super
For the off chance you are going to want to go to Miami in the winter.

3. The 2011 Bentley Mulsanne
To drive you around while you are in Miami

2. Cassie
To show you around while you are in Miami

1. A Vintage 1961 Ferrari California Spyder
For when you get tired of using the Bentley, of course.

Happy holidays, ESM readers, happy holidays…
