For some people, vehicles are just a way to get from point A to point B. Sure, they may spring for a few upgrades like heated seats, particularly if they live in a cold climate, but many drivers are more than satisfied with an average car in a regular, subtle color, one that will blend in with all the other cars in the parking lot. And then, there are the car enthusiasts. The ones who know all the possible interior features, and are the first to know whenever a company comes out with some new innovation thanks to technological advances. Instead of asking why you would pay extra for a certain features, they’re asking why wouldn’t you? And when it comes to the luxury car market, it’s all about the extra features.
Yes, luxury cars themselves are made with impeccable craftsmanship, everything under the hood is impressive and they drive like a dream. However, let’s be honest – it’s all about those add-ons, and when money is no issue, the options available can be truly incredible. You might ask why on earth people would want to pay extra for some of the crazy features on this list, but hey – it’s a supply and demand world, and as long as people keep opting to pimp their luxury rides, car manufacturers will keep coming up with crazy features they can choose to add on.
10 Toyota Century cassette deck
9 Jaguar XF gear knob
8 Audi A8’s R-rated seats
7 Bentley’s "Info-tainment" pack
6 Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe scent system
5 Audi A8's Bang & Olufsen pop-up tweeter
4 Mercedes-Benz’s granite trim
3 Porsche’s leather vents
2 BMW’s “Gentleman Function”
1 Rolls Royce's Starlight
Okay, we’re going to be honest – this feature is pretty cool. If you manage to find enough change in the couch cushions to purchase a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead, you’ll have the option to get the night sky put in your car for $12,000. Well, almost – you’ll get a roof liner that has tiny fibre-optic lights embedded within it that, when lit, allows you to lay back in your reclined seat and look up at the stars. Now that’s a car feature that your date will actually care about. Dinner, drinks, and a night under the stars. If you’re looking to recreate a particular moment, you can even pay extra to have Rolls Royce lay out the ‘stars’ on your roof to replicate what the night sky looked like on a particular date. Now, who says car manufacturers aren’t romantic?
