Would you pay for these even if you had the money??
Welcome to the luxurious lifestyles of the rich and the famous, where some optional car features cost more than an average person’s home. While the rest of us are heavily debating whether or not to add on that Vienna Leather trim in our cars for an extra $50 a month, the elite are dropping up to six figures at dealerships to customize their rides.
Ultra-luxury sedans are all about prestige. Rich people will always be willing to spend unfathomable amounts of money on cars and pay a premium for exclusivity, higher quality, better performance and brands that show off their wealth. Beyond that desire to show off their riches, some people truly appreciate innovative design and are willing to pay a premium for features that most people wouldn’t even come to realize.
Whether it’s an increase in performance or upgraded interior, some optional car features will go unnoticed to the onlooker. Regardless, these upgrades are reserved for the upper class of society. Here is a list of the 10 Most Expensive Car Options Money Can Buy:
10. Tesla Ludicrous Mode: $10,000
The Tesla Model S was released in 2012 to rave reviews and has been dubbed an electric dream car by many. Its unseen before, high tech features like Autopilot, have helped place the Model S into a category of its own. Its 12.3 inch liquid display instrument panel was a first in the auto industry, bridging the gap between cars and technology, and completely changing the driving experience for anybody who has had the chance to sit in one of these cars.
Not only is the Tesla Model S a technological marvel, the car is also extremely fast. It is the first 4-door production car to crack the 3 second, 0-to-60-mph threshold. Adding the optional Ludicrous Mode feature will set the buyer back $10,000 and give the car the ability to hit 0-to-60 in an astonishing 2.8 seconds.
9. Gold Plated Spirit of Ecstasy: $10,000
The famous flying lady by Rolls Royce, the Spirit of Ecstasy, is known throughout the world as a symbol of luxury. There have been many variations of the Spirit of Ecstasy since its origins dating back to the early 1900s. The modern day version that we have all come to know was introduced in 2003. Due to the ornament being so fragile, it is designed to retract into the radiator shell if ever it is struck.
The emblem can also be controlled inside of the vehicle by the press of a button. Car owners will usually lower the emblem when parking their car to avoid it being broken or stolen. The Spirit of Ecstasy is made from a highly polished stainless steel but can be plated in 24-carat gold for an additional $10,000.
