The World’s Most Expensive Car Add-ons
For many of us, spending extra cash on a bigger set of wheels can cause a financial headache. In the grand scheme of things – and the world of expensive optional extras – such things barely scratch the surface. Here, we run through the craziest of options.
Bentley Bentayga Breitling clock
This one made headlines when the car was revealed. The Bentley Bentayga could be optioned with a £132,000 Breitling clock. LeasingOptions says you can pay a team of three people £35,000 a year, with the change, just to tell you the time.
Mercedes-Maybach champagne flutes
It’s getting gratuitous and we’re only on number 13 out of 15. When optioning your Mercedes-Maybach limousine, you can spend the equivalent of 260 bottles of wine on some fancy champagne flutes. In fairness, £2,600 for a set of crystal flutes isn’t completely outside the realms of believability.
BMW i8 Louis Vuitton luggage set
For £16,500, you could have high-end luggage set for your hybrid sports car. That’s well over ten percent of the cost of the car.
Aston Martin Jaeger-LeCoultre Transponder Watch
Unlock your Aston Martin with the world’s most expensive key. It’s also a very expensive watch. £25,000 lets you unlock your Aston with this blind piece of wristwear.
Rolls-Royce gold-plated Spirit of Ecstasy
When it comes to Rolls-Royces if you have to ask… But since you are asking, gold-plating the Spirit of Ecstasy will set you back £7,500. For that, you could have a jolly long holiday on the other side of the world or 2,307 pints of beer.
Rolls-Royce drinks cabinet
Luxury car manufacturers love providing ways for you to have a drink. For 16,000 of your hard-earned pounds, you could option a drinks cabinet for your Rolls-Royce.
Rolls-Royce Phantom starlight headliner
This is probably one of the most famous optional extras ever made. Even though it’s £10,000, it’s pretty cool. You could order around 3,000 pints of beer for that.
