FANCY CLOCKS

Most people who buy vehicles like the Bentley Bentayga or Rolls-Royce Cullinan have incomes that put them firmly in the one percent category. They also like the finer things in life, so why not add a crazy expensive timepiece in the vehicle that they ride in?

When the Bentley Bentayga first went on sale, one option stood out because of its $160,000 price tag: a mechanical Breitling clock adorning the dash called the Mulliner Tourbillon. It even winds itself and has a motor that can rotate the clock to keep it running.

ANTI-PAPARAZZI CURTAINS

As expected, celebrities are connoisseurs of expensive high-end vehicles to flaunt their status wherever they go. So it’s no surprise that it’s possible to get curtains on vehicles like a Rolls-Royce Phantom and Bentley Mulsanne.

They’re also power operated, so all you need to do to get away from the flashing lights or pull the partition between you and the driver is push a button. Bentley charges $15,969 to outfit your Mulsanne with curtains in the rear seats.

REFRIGERATORS

For those who like to indulge in fancy chilled drinks on the road, there are many high-end luxury cars now that give you the option to add a refrigerator in between the rear seats. Everything from a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class and Volvo XC90 Excellence to a Rolls-Royce Phantom and Bentley Mulsanne now offers an available refrigerator for you to store your favorite drinks.

In a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you can get yourself a nice little refrigerator for $1,100. However, in a Volvo XC90, that feature is only available on the Excellence model, which costs $106,545. In a Bentley Bentayga, you have to go to the brand’s Mulliner arm to get a custom refrigerator that costs $10,000.

MATCHING EXPENSIVE GLASSWARE

Riding in luxury means you should also drink in style in the rear seats. Some automakers including Bentley and Volvo add expensive crystal flutes or wine glasses. In the case of Volvo, its six-figure XC90 Excellence comes with Orrefors glasses for your enjoyment on the road.

We suspect that part of the refrigerator’s cost is reflected by the inclusion of fancy champagne flutes and glasses, which we found could cost anywhere from $250 to upwards of $500 for a set of two.

To make their cars unique, high-end automakers such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, and Porsche will let you commission a vehicle to your exact specifications. That includes interior trim such as real metal and wood.

If that’s too common for you, Bentley will even embed stone veneers into your car, and other automakers will let you bring your own wood to put into your car complete with unique patterns and designs. Automakers typically don’t advertise the cost of these services. If you need to know the damage it’ll do to your bank account, you can’t afford it.

REAL HIDES

Standard leather is for peons, and in order to add an extra layer of opulence and excess, high-end automakers put in real hides that artisans sew in by hand. If special seats aren’t enough for you, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and other brands in the ultra-luxury space will let you opt for lambswool rugs so you can rub your feet in them and indulge in all of that softness.
