You know what to get the man who has everything?


A man can never have enough toys, no matter his age. And regardless, these are toys that every man you know can appreciate, from your nephew to your granddad and everyone in between.

Racing Heroes is a new online boutique that meticulously handcrafts model cars that pay homage to track and street champions that have left an indelible mark in the automotive history books.

Each model is assembled with top-quality materials and precision, and they’re dizzingly accurate: some of the constructions require more than 1,500 parts. In the shop, every 1/18th-scale auto is categorized by year, make, model and any relevant races, from a 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Grand Sport to a 1964 Porsche 901.

A Santa Barbara-based family business, Racing Heroes aims to bring to life rides that once inspired trends and kindled dreams. “These cars are our heroes,” they state. “They make us into heroes.”

And they’ll make you into a hero of a stocking stuffer this holiday season.
