MF reveals the hottest products of the gift-giving season
Guinness Home Pub
Most guys can find the appeal in a warm Irish pub — maybe it's the friendly faces or the sense of tradition, but most likely it's the delicious Guinness. Now you can recreate the look and feel of your favorite Irish hangout with the Guinness home pub. For a mere $250,000 the good folks at RiRa Pubs will construct a fully functional Irish pub in your home, crafted from historic Irish architectural elements and decorated with authentic Guinness artifacts. Plus, you get a trip for two to the historic St. James' Gate Guinness brewery in Dublin. Lastly (but most importantly), you'll receive a year's supply of Guinness for your new pub.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4
With a 16-cylinder engine and four turbochargers, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is one of the fastest production cars in the world — and with a $1.7 million price tag, it's also one of the most expensive. So what does that kind of dough get you? For starters, 1,001 horses under the hood and the ability to go from 0-60 in a neck-snapping 2.4 seconds. The Veyron also comes equipped with a computer-controlled seven-speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) transmission and the ability to shift manually via steering wheel-mounted shifter paddles.
