Martini Racing has one of the most well-known racing liveries in the world, and even if you’re not big into motorsports, we’re sure you’d recognize the retro red, baby blue and navy blue colors instantly.
Martini & Rossi is an Italian distillery famous for its vermouth and sparkling wine, and it has been sponsoring motorsports teams since 1968 under the Martini Racing banner. Martini Racing products make great gifts for car enthusiasts because not only does the brand have a rich history and has outfitted some of the world’s most famous race cars, but the colors just go really well together and the stuff just looks cool. The company’s iconic red and blue racing livery has worn by race cars form Lancia, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, and more.
We’ve picked out some of the best Martini Racing products that we’d be happy to get as gifts.

Martini Racing Team Waterproof Jacket
If you’ve watched racing, you’ve seen managers, team members, race car drivers and other important people wearing this jacket in the pit lanes or in the stands.
This heritage blue jacket is 100% polyester and is a two-layer waterproof jacket with a storm flap, removable hood, and a stowaway compartment. I’m a big fan of this jacket’s asymmetrical design, with the Martini logo and stripes running down the left side. I also like that this jacket isn’t too loud or flashy.
Great news! They also sell women’s sizes of this jacket, which is stupidly rare when shopping for motorsports clothing.
Martini Racing Vest
Another great option for keeping warm, this puffer vest is perfect for casual fall days. It is lightweight, made of 100% polyester, and has an original Martini logo patch on the left side. It also has two pockets with velcro closures.
Martini Racing Porsche Duffle Bag
This official Porsche duffle is the same bag the pros use! It’s made of waterproof painted tarpaulin, so it’s strong, durable and flexible. The straps are also made of seatbelt material and the bag is Swiss-made.
This other nylon duffle bag is also pretty cool, but won’t protect your stuff as well as the one above. This white and dark blue duffle is part of the official 2016 Williams Martini Racing Team collection and has multiple compartments for your stuff.
Porsche Martini Car Cover
If you have a 911, there is no cooler way to keep it shielded from dust and other stuff that seems hellbent on scratching your paint. This is a genuine Porsche product and this car cover is made of a material that’s soft, breathable, and anti-static. This is a great car cover that will add a splash of color to your garage when you’re not out driving your 911.
Classic Martini Racing Porsches Art Prints
These minimalist art prints would make a great gift for a Porsche fan, but we’re sure almost any automotive enthusiast wouldn’t mind hanging these in their home. These original artworks of Martini-liveried 911s are printed on fine art paper that is acid-free and archival quality.
Buying this set of four 12 x 12 prints is more affordable than buying them separately and they would look great on a wall as part of a gallery. The frames aren’t included, but this set of four prints isn’t very expensive at all, so picking up a few frames won’t be too much of a wallet drain. Here, I’ve even found you a four-pack of affordable 12 x 12 white frames that will look great with these prints.
Lancia Delta Rally Winner with Martini Livery
Martini Racing had some of its biggest success in rally racing with this Lancia Delta S4. This is a 1:18 model of the Lancia that won in the 1986 Argentina rally. There were only 1,000 of this limited edition model made, so it’s quite collectible.
This model has rubber tires, steerable wheels, opening doors and hatches, and a pretty detailed interior and engine compartment. The design details are very true to the real rally-winning Lancia.
Porsche 918 with Martini Livery
If you prefer newer cars, Porsche has a longstanding relationship with Martini and offered its 918 hypercar with the famous livery. If you missed the boat on getting a real 918 or if it’s slightly out of your budget, you can always turn to a model version!
There are many 1:18 scale 918 models with Martini livery to choose from, but this white Spyder version is my personal favorite.
I also really, really love this 1:18 scale Porsche 917K that ran at the 24 Hours of Daytona in the early ’70s.
Porsche Martini Racing Chronograph
It’s pretty well-known that most car enthusiasts are also watch enthusiasts. And that makes this next Martini Racing product entirely desirable. This limited edition set was released in 2006 in honor of the Porsche 911 RSR — there were only 936 of this set made, so it’s quite collectible. The quartz watch itself is made in Switzerland and the strap is made of both leather and canvas in the traditional Martini colors. As a bonus, the watch comes with a 936 model.
If that watch set is out of your budget, you can always just pick up a much more affordable watch strap and get the same look for a better price. That’s called a STYLE HACK! This watch strap has polished steel hardware and laser finished buckle holes so they won’t fray.
