For those looking to get a head start on the holiday shopping season, Bentley has unveiled its latest collection of trinkets and toys. This year's collection includes pieces inspired by the 10th anniversary of Bentley's win at Le Mans.

Nothing captures the thrill of winning at Le Mans quite like drinking coffee, so this year's commemorative collection includes a set of espresso cups decorated with "adventurous imagery" intended to celebrate Bentley's big win. The set also includes saucers carrying the two winning car numbers, 7 and 8.

For Bentley fans looking for a bit of fun, the holiday collection also includes a hand-crafted backgammon set from Geoffrey Parker Games. The set includes such details as hand-bound leather casing and knurled checkers sporting the Bentley wings.

Bentley hasn't forgotten about its future owners and has includes a 1:12 scale model remote control Bentley Continental Supersports in this year's collection. Although the smaller version of the Supersports doesn't quite hit the real deal's top speed of 204mph, Bentley promise it will deliver full-scale driving excitement.

"The spirit of Bentley can be captured and wrapped this Christmas," Lindsay Weaver, Director of Licencing and Branded Goods at Bentley Motors, said. "From the smallest, most thoughtful gifts to the majestic, unique statement pieces, the latest collection enables Bentley to take pride of place not only on the driveway but under the Christmas tree too."

If you're buying for us, we'll take a Mulsanne finished in dark blue.
