Here Are 9 Crazy Features Found on High-End Luxury Cars

In case you want to take in the fresh air, some high-end luxury cars are offered with folding picnic tables for you to put your drinks and favorite snacks. Want a full setup? Vehicles including the Bentley Bentayga even offer a full-fledged picnic set complete with utensils, glassware, and a slide-out bench to tailgate out of. The price tag? An eye-watering $27,500.

Special interior trim

To make their cars unique, high-end automakers such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, and Porsche will let you commission a vehicle to your exact specifications. That includes interior trim such as real metal and wood. If that’s too common for you, Bentley will even embed stone veneers into your car, and other automakers will let you bring your own wood to put into your car complete with unique patterns and designs. Automakers typically don’t advertise the cost of these services. If you need to know the damage it’ll do to your bank account, you can’t afford it.

Real hides

Standard leather is for peons, and in order to add an extra layer of opulence and excess, high-end automakers put in real hides that artisans sew in by hand. If special seats aren’t enough for you, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and other brands in the ultra-luxury space will let you opt for lambswool rugs so you can rub your feet in them and indulge in all of that softness. The damage for the soft feeling under your feet? Between $974 to $2,944, depending on the color and model of vehicle you have. Brands like Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and BMW all have commission programs that let you choose exclusive interior upholstery that can cost anywhere from $2,000 to well over $5,000.

Soft-close doors/power doors

Too lazy to close your own door shut? Nearly every manufacturer that offers a high-end luxury car gives you the option to add doors with some form of power closing mechanism. Whether it’s the soft-close variety or one that lets you open or close with the push of a button, there’s no longer much effort involved in door operation. Most full-size luxury sedans like the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class now come standard with soft-close doors even in their most basic iterations.

Stars…in the headliner

If you thought multi-colored interior ambient lighting was cool, wait until you see the available starlight headliner in a new Rolls-Royce Phantom. Available through Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke program, the starlight headliner embeds fiber optic strands at different angles into perforated leather so that light can shine through multiple areas in different levels of brightness to make it look like you’re gazing up at the stars. The price tag? A cool $12,000.
