duPont REGISTRY. December 2022. No451.

Introducing the December 2022 issue of duPont REGISTRY, #451, starring the new Ferrari Purosangue. Below, you’ll find out what to expect in this issue and more. To get your hands on a copy, either buy a single issue or subscribe.

Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanzaa. Whatever you celebrate, everyone at duPont REGISTRY wishes you and yours a holiday season full of love, togetherness, and goodwill.

Of course, we don’t shy away from the consumer side of the season either. Gift-giving and gift-getting are the name of the game, and our official 2022 holiday “Gift Guide” is the ultimate Sears Wish Book for adults.


Instead of children’s toys and video games, though, our guide goes all in on gifts for the most discerning clientele. We’ve got highly curated, expert recommendations for stocking stuffers and big gifts alike, as well as this year’s best luxury travel ideas. And we haven’t forgotten your favorite hobbies, with a list of the hottest products for golf, skiing, and your next beach trip.

And then there are the cars. Around this time of year, one might ask, “What would Santa drive?” The obvious answer is the Ferrari Purosangue, Maranello’s long-awaited super SUV. It’s so hot (with a splash of that signature red), we made it this month’s cover car to celebrate the season. Check out our full report about the Purosangue on page 12.

Not even Santa could get his hands on the new Bugatti Mistral Roadster. Only 99 examples of the roofless Chiron will be produced at a cost of $5 million, and every single one is already spoken for. What a sendoff for the iconic W16 engine, and we’ve got the full story of its inception straight from the mouth of its designer on page 26.

Lastly, we spend some valuable seat time in the new Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica, a beautiful and brutal compromise between the standard Huracán and the brand’s lethal STO track weapon. The Tecnica is the best of both worlds and the model we’d choose if it were our money. Check out our driving impressions on page 32.

After all that, we’re not even done. With the end of year in sight, we look back at the major buying and selling trends for cars in this crazy year called 2022. Prices were up, way up, but the market began to show signs of cooling as the leaves turned. Is now the time to invest in a future classic car or established icon? Find out what collectors were chasing this year on page 20.

We’re just about ready to take the next trip around the sun, but not before you read this extra special December issue. And if your certain someone doesn’t have one yet, an annual subscription to duPont REGISTRY is only $85. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)
