In a recent article by Goodwood Road & Racing, Goodwood hunted down a few extravagant car addons to answer the question: “what are the most expensive car options, and who is mad enough to buy them?
Goodwood, of course, couldn’t answer the latter part of the question, but its findings are jaw-dropping nevertheless.
From a dashboard clock to carbon-fiber finishes, these are the lavish options that made the list:
Ferrari LaFerrari carbon-fiber front end | $335,000
Debuted in 2013, The Ferrari LaFerrari cost buyers £1.15 million ($1.5 million) but came with an option that tacked on another $335,000.
This option, priced as an average American home, was a carbon-fiber front end that could be added to both the coupe and Aperta editions.
Bugatti Veyron carbon finish | $293,000
The Bugatti Veyron was produced between 2005 and 2015, although only 450 were made. The starting price was $1.9 million.
In 2013 the Grand Sport Vitesse, the convertible version, was named the world’s fastest roadster when it reached 254.04 miles per hour.
If you’re already spending almost $2 million on the car, why not add a carbon-fiber finish for £250,000 ($293,000)?
Bentley Bentayga Breitling clock | $181,000
Bentley released their luxury SUV, the Bentayga, in 2015 with a starting price of $229,100.
Partnered with the exclusive Swiss watchmakers, Breitling, the Bentaya came with an option that cost almost as much as the car itself.
The addon was a solid gold, diamond-encrusted clock placed in the dash for £132,000 ($181,000).
Who knew telling time in a Bentley cost so much?
Porsche 918 Spyder liquid metal paint | $73,000
When Porsche released the supercar known as the 918 Spyder in 2013, it was one of the first hybrid hypercars on the market and cost around $845,000 – but good luck finding one today for under $1.1 million.
One of the paint options offered to buyers was a liquid metal silver with a price tag of £52,000 ($73,000).
Mercedes-Maybach granite interior | $55,000
Probably the most unique option on this list is the granite trim package for Mercedes-Maybachs.
Mercedes’s Designo bespoke program came up with this opulent design that starts at £40,000 ($55,000).
