Expensive Car Options For The Super Rich

Car Culture / Comments

Money can't buy love but it can buy carbon-fiber.

So, you wake up one day and realize you're filthy rich. You're a car enthusiast, but the first thing you do isn't to buy a new car. Buying a new car is for the amateurs that haven't thought it through. No, the first thing you do is go shopping for a nice new mansion with a huge garage so you can buy a whole bunch of new cars. Once you have a place to store your new selection of cars, it's time to tour the dealerships and make your orders. However, you also have to choose your options.

Of course, you're going to want to spend your money wisely and as much of it as possible, so we've got a list here of the most expensive options your money can buy for your new fleet of cars.

Rolls Royce Spirit of Ecstasy Hood Ornament

Rolls-Royce has transcended the idea of being a statement of wealth. A Rolls-Royce wafting down the road is also a statement of style and the owner is clearly someone that appreciates the finest of things. To that end, you can order the Spirit of Ecstasy to be illuminated, or you could drop the cash and have it frosted in gold for $10,500.

Aston Martin Vantage AMR Race Suit and Helmet

The first thing you should be doing with your new found wealth is buying a grand tourer with a huge engine. If you go down the Aston Martin route, then the Vantage AMR is perfect if your grand tour involves a track for a spot of racing. You can option yourself a custom FIA homologated AMR race suite for $7,674.78 and the helmet for $5,346, and then choose either Stirling Green, White, or Blue for the color and then personalize them with your name and national flag.

Ferrari Golf Bags

Along with all that money, you now have time on your hands and what could be a better chariot to take you to the golf course than an Italian car with a prancing horse badge? Ferrari has you covered here with personalized Ferrari golf bag and luggage that can be tailored to match your interior leather and stitching colors. Just don't make the rookie new-money mistake of spending more on your golf bag than your clubs though. The golf bag costs a little over $10,000 and the luggage over $13,000.

Rolls-Royce Starlight Headliner

There's nothing more annoying than taking your favorite person out in the Roller to find a nice spot to enjoy the night sky only to find out it's too cloudy to see the stars. Don't worry though, for $13,000 you'll always have the stars above with the Rolls-Royce headliner that uses fiber-optic lighting to create the effect of stars overhead. The lights are fitted at varying angles and depths to create the illusion and can be adjusted depending on the amount of illumination or effect you want.

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drinks Cabinet

You probably already have someone interviewing candidates to be your chauffeur, so you may as well make sure the back of your Phantom has everything you need for a good night out. Between the clubs and charity functions, you and your partner may as well keep the party going with a drinks cabinet in the center console, and it's a steal for just $14,000.

Porsche Braided Carbon-Fiber Wheels

Along with the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, Porsche decided to offer wheels made of carbon-fiber. Unlike your run-of-the-mill standard carbon-fiber wheels, Porsche uses 200 pieces of carbon fiber fabric to make each one using the specially built 30-foot tall carbon fiber braiding machine. Light and incredibly strong, you won't want to curb them at a cost of $18,000.

BMW i8 Tailored Luggage

The BMW i8 is a lot of things, but being spacious is not something you can accuse it of. However, BMW partnered up with Louis Vuitton to design a luggage set made up of two travel bags, a business case, and a garment bag that fits perfectly into the i8's interior and trunk. It's yours in black for an extra $20,000.

Bentley Paint Options

It's all very well having a chauffeur for nights out but you're a car enthusiast and for those afternoon drives out to somewhere exclusive for a spot of lunch, you'll want to take the drop-top Bentley. The problem is that normal paint is a bit boring and you want to stand right out. The liquid metal paint is made with thousands upon thousands of aluminum flakes that give the paint it's perfectly level luminescent shine.

You may pause before you tick the box because it costs $32,000 to look that good, and it should because Bentley spends a lot of time and effort to get the paint on your car perfect. Reportedly, the Matte option for the Mulsanne is around the same price and it definitely looks stunningly beautiful.

Ferrari Forged Diamond Wheels

Even the expensive options for most wheels are made from forged aluminum, but you're about to become a Ferrari owner so you have to ask yourself if that's good enough for you now. If not, prepare to drop $47,000 and get your wheels with the kind of shiny finish only the precision of the diamond cutting process can provide.

Pagani Huayra Exposed Carbon-Fiber

At first glance, spending $153,000 dollars on an option may seemsa little excessive. Except, you're dropping well over a million dollars on one of Pagani's finest and money is no object, and making carbon-fiber look its best isn't cheap. Of course, if you prefer to have a two-tone look then partially exposed carbon-fiber on your Huayra is a mere $81,300.
