Santa’s sleigh gets upgraded for this year’s Christmas

Updated Dec 17, 2020 | Same topic: Most Updated Car Concept

Even the ageless gift giver needs some pampering once in a while.

The concept of Santa using and having a sleigh has been around for a long time. How else is he going to fly around distributing cheer and joy during the Christmas season after all, right? The design of Santa Clauses’ sleigh has been somewhat the same throughout the years. It features a wooden box-like thing with a bench seat and a trunk.

If Bristol Street Motors would have it their way, however, Santa deserves a bit of an upgrade. As such, their talented artists have designed sleighs based on several famous cars from well-known car brands. Let’s check them out, shall we?

1. Volkswagen Sleigh

Volkswagen is huge, especially in Europe. It has one of the largest dealership networks over there, and its production numbers in its home continent are unrivaled. Santa, if you didn’t know, lives somewhere in Europe. As such, it would only be appropriate for him to ride a Volkswagen Sleigh.

2. Nissan GT-R Sleigh

In order to visit each and every house around the world in a single night, Santa definitely needs speed. So what better way to provide that than a Nissan GT-R inspired sleigh. Sure, the old sleigh was enough for the job for hundreds of years, but the GT-R sleigh might be able to provide Santa with more fun while on the job. Maybe jolly Kris Kringle could even set a track time or two in his spare time with this thing.

Also, the GR-T sleigh’s leather suede interior and bucket seats would comfort Santa in addition to his already fully coat wouldn’t you think so?

3. Range Rover Sleigh

In his trips around the world, Santa would sometimes need to travel through extreme conditions. And so, a Land Rover Sleigh would grant him a more rugged vehicle that’ll be able to go anywhere. Plus it has loads of cargo room too.

4. Tesla Sleigh

While some others say that Santa lives in the North Pole, others say he lives in Korvatunturi, which is somewhere between Russia and Finland. Regardless, these places will undoubtedly be affected by global warming and climate change.

Santa, being the good and jolly guy that he is, might want to help reduce the world’s carbon footprint by opting for a Tesla Sleigh. Tesla being Tesla, we’re quite sure that they’ll make the sleigh even more special by fitting it with anti-gravity runners as well as autopilot mode.
