The perfect gift for the guy who has everything

If you forget to buy that special someone a Valentine's day present, don't worry. Starting next week, you'll be able to get them their very own Formula One race car. And, conveniently, you can pick it up on the way home from the airport:
Passengers passing through Zurich airport can add a Formula One car to their usual duty-free shopping this month.

A selection of cars and memorabilia owned by Peter Sauber, whose Swiss-based team were taken over by BMW at the end of 2005, will be auctioned off at the airport over a six-week period from February 19.

"This is the first time Formula One racing cars will be up for sale at Zurich Airport," said Patrick Graf, head of marketing retail for the company that holds the government concession to operate the airport, in a statement.
Really? You mean they don't usually sell race cars at the Zurich Airport? How quaint.

Oh, and by the way, the cars will set you back to the tune of at least seventy three grand. If you have that kind of change just jingling in your pocket, why not?
