World’s Craziest Priced Factory Car Add-ons

Granite trim, anyone?

If there’s one thing that car companies like it is the factory car option. Though a buyer can often get a car at a bare-bottom base price, the buyers give back any savings they had made by going for factory add-ons. And, some of the options you may have on your car, pricey though they may be, pale in comparison to the items on the list of the most ridiculously-priced factory add-ons that Jalopnik has compiled.

  • Your Nissan GT-R can be, if you so desire, fitted with R35 Spec-V brakes for a cool $50,000. According to the Spec folks, these are the best brakes in the world, a claim that I’ll never get the chance to test. 
  • The Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe can come with one of the coolest options on the list, a $12,350 Starlight Room. Consisting of lights installed into the headliner of your Rolls, it mimics the night sky.
  • The Infiniti QX56 Blind Spot Warning System is priced about the same as the Starlight Room. However, it is a functional safety feature. The problem lies in the list of the other options you must agree to if you want the warning system such as the Theater Package, $2950, and the Tire and Wheel Package, $2300.
  • Buyers of the Mercedes-Benz CL has a factory granite trim option that costs $2,650. It is made of real granite.
  • If you get the Porsche Boxster, do not forget the rear-view mirror lined with leather and the painted air vents.
  • Finally, the most ridiculously-priced factory car option is the non-action option that’ll cost you $300,000. If you want a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, $2.2 million, that has NOT been painted you’ll have to pay a total of $2.5 million.
