If cars are considered commodities in your world, then read no more. We are talking about cars as characters; absolutely brash ones that come with all the bling and shimmer in this world. What’s brow-raising is that often the ‘extra’ bling and shimmer can cost more than an average car itself. Carmudi, the international carclassifieds, did a little survey into some of the flashiest car add-ons that the ultra-rich are buying to pimp up their rides.

A pure collaboration of prestige and elegance! Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre teamed up to create the first mechanical watch, the Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX2 chronograph, developed with the ability to access the car through the use of a built in micro transmitter system.

Number 1 License Plate
Anyone who loves their motor, dreams of a customized number plate. It is an investment that quadruples the price of your car the moment it adorns a number plate with a single digit. The lower the number, the higher the status, it seems.
Diamond Encrusted Shift Knob
This royal masterpiece is handcrafted with 30 karat genuine diamonds. Shifting gears has never been so pricey. Be careful with the onlookers as you could easily trade several new cars for the price of this single knob. But if this isn’t enough bling for you, there is an even pricey model for the Bentley Continental GT finished in white gold and 30 carats of diamonds.
