At Savvy, our mission is to empower you to make informed financial choices. While we maintain stringent editorial standards, this article may include mentions of products offered by our partners. Here’s how we generate income.

The Porche 911 is already worth a cool $250,000, but for a bonus of “just” $4790, any buyer can install a “response” button in their steering wheel. What is a response button? A button similar to the ones in Formula One that enables the driver to boost the turbochargers and accelerate instantly for 20 seconds, long enough to pass a car, hence the nickname “push to pass” button.

$19,000 is the price one has to pay for a two-tone paint on a brand new Ferrari, in addition to another $19,000 for racing stripes. Ferrari also charges $4990 for a rear camera on its already staggering $470,000 Ferrari 48 GTB. This same kind of camera costs owners an extra $9600 on a Lamborghini Aventador V12, which sits at $795,000 without it. Meanwhile, select models of Toyota and Honda are offering the same camera on their standard cars.

The Holden Commodore cannot compare, when it comes to crazy prices, since the sticker pack for the racing stripe is a mere $440, while V8 models come with colourful engine covers for an additional $350. That’s a far cry from the prices Ferrari is sporting for their racing stripes.

In fact, Ferrari makes the list again, with a different kind of accessory. $2000 is the price we’re talking about, but can you guess what that money can buy? No more and no less than an embroidery of their signature horse on the seat headrests. Personalising your ride sure comes at a price.

$2000 is also, coincidentally, the highest price for an accessory installed on the Toyota HiLux, except for the fact that it doesn’t buy merely an embroidery on the headrest, but the whole pair of leather seats.

Bentley takes the cake for the most over-the-top expensive accessory, of course: a Breitling clock will set back buyers $300,000; that’s beside the $450,000 they are already paying for the car. The car in question is the Bentley Bentayga, which already features a digital clock. Nevertheless, two of the four clocks that Bentley makes every year have already been sold, proving that there is, indeed, a market for diamond and gold car clocks. The car makes some pretty significant claims outside the clock itself, promising that the Bentayga is the fastest SUV in the world.

Clearly, the rich lead very different lives, but if these accessories are up for sale, then someone has to buy them. Whether $2000 is enough for an upgrade to leather seats or it needs to be multiplied by 150 to purchase a dashboard clock, someone out there is going to put down the cash for the latest extra.
