Sphero remote-controlled BB-8 droid - £130

It’s expensive and arguably it has nothing to do with motoring, but the Sphero BB-8 is so much cooler than a radio-controlled car. The droid features in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie and roams around in a very cool way – the lower sphere rolls and the head stays put on top.

In trailers it looked like it was probably an impossible computer-generated creation – but it wasn’t. The BB-8 used on the film really worked - and you can get one for yourself, albeit very much smaller than the one in the movie. It is controlled via a smartphone app, but if you don’t want to drive it you can set it to roam around on its own. It will even respond to your voice.
