The Unnecessary Accessory

Tue 07 Jun

Wallet been weighing you down? Sore back from carrying around your bucket loads of cash? Need some help getting some of those pesky commas out of your bank balance?

These are some of the world's most ridiculously expensive features that let everyone around you know that you have far more dollars than sense.

Starry, Starry Night

When you're out in nature driving around, do you ever wish there was a way you could see the stars above you? Stop! Don't open that door and get out of your car, enjoy all the beauty of the galaxy above from the comfort of your Rolls Royce.

The company's aptly named 'Starlight Headliner' comes complete with 1,340 individual shimmering lights scattered across your rooftop.

The stars can be arranged into whatever formation you'd like - whether you'd like the exact configuration of the stars on the day you were born, or to have the Southern Cross in your roof to perfectly match your bicep tattoo you got on Schoolies.

The cost: $12,925

Splashing Out On Leather

Dartz Prombron

When designing a $1.5M Russian luxury car, there is no feature you wouldn't include to make your car a true spectacle. Gold-plated bulletproof windows - not bad. Diamond encrusted gauges - seen it before. But what can you really do to make this car something that truly lets the world know you have money, style AND class?

Whale foreskin leather seats of course!

The Dartz Prombron Monaco Red Diamond Edition debuted at the 2010 Top Marques Monaco Show to much fanfare and excitement.

However, after word of their interesting upholstery choice made it to the ears of Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund and ETA spokeswoman Pamela Anderson - who were understandably vocal about their disapproval - the brand chose to rethink their choice of leather and look toward alternative enviro-friendly seat-lining materials.

Much to the relief of the Moby Dick's and Free Willy's of the world.

Hydration Station Electrification

So you've bought your car, you've got stars on the roof, you have leather seats made from an animal found only in the depths of the ocean, but you still have just a little bit more money that you want to get rid of? It's time to truly pimp out your car with some nifty motorised cup holders.

Cadillac have truly propelled themselves to the forefront of technological innovation with this one!

Say goodbye to having to exert yourself every time you just want your cup held. No more strained fingers or dislocated knuckles from wrenching open the wretched cover!

With just the touch of a button, a new world of struggle-free drink container carrying opens up around you.

Ground-breaking.

Hitting Rock Bottom

When choosing the interior for your new Maybach, removing unnecessary weight and using materials that best protect you in the event of a crash are always high on the to-do list.

That is, unless you have money to burn.

For those looking to break the mould, there is a desire to go against the grain - woodgrain, that is - and instead opt for a granite trim in your car.

It will set you back $60,000 to deck out your Maybach's interior with the stone, although we assume that since you're paying for a Maybach in the first place, a lazy $60k will be a mere blip on your radar.

Like Clockwork

You've bought the suit, sold your second kidney for the car and have perfected the faux-British accent, but still you feel like your dream of being James Bond is missing one small thing - a badass watch that will do all your bidding for you.

Although this Jaeger-LeCoultre Transponder watch won't shoot out a laser or double as a hand grenade, it does work to unlock the door of your Aston Martin DB9.

Whilst you'll still need to use a key to start the car, hey, the watch unlocks the door!

Well worth the $37,900 price tag.
