13 Of The Stupidest Optional Extras Avaliable On a Car


Stupid optional extras

You can never buy a new car for it’s starting price, because that’s like communism.  You’ll be about as equal in terms of your equipment, as the next class down.

So in that respect, optional extras are actually kind of essential to any new car.  However, some offerings are a bit dafted…  As this list will now demonstrate.

1. Porsche Panamera Rear Windscreen Wiper – £260

stupid optional extras

Yep, you’ve read that correctly.  And you could argue that Porsche are being incredibly cheeky, considering that you will already pay at least £70,000 for the car!  smh

2. Nissan(k) Sylphy Illuminated Door Sills – Standard

stupid optional extras

Okay, technically this isn’t an optional extra.  But it’s worth a mention since, having lit door sills on a cheap, Asian market saloon car is…..very cringey!

And since our man Wai Ning has one, check out what he thinks of it!

3. Audi R8 Laser Headlights – £3,000

stupid optional extras

It may sound appealing, but once you learn that the laser headlights look pretty much exactly the same as the standard LED’s.  Then you’ll sit and wonder, why it’s worth chucking away 3 grand.

4. Audi R8 Carbon Fibre Engine Bay – £2,950

stupid optional extras

Having an engine cover is sad enough.  So what’s the point of spending another 3 grand on making it look even more showy?  That could go towards some decent tuning!

5. Ferrari F12 Carbon Fibre Filter Box Cover – £3,000

stupid optional extras

You read that correctly.  Ferrari have the balls to sell a filter box lid, for the price of a holiday in Italy!!    Talk about stupid optional extras…

6. Fiat 500 In-Car Coffee Maker – £169

stupid optional extras

It may actually seem like a bright idea by the Italian marque.  But they forgot to mention, that you can get a flask for less than £20 from Tesco…

7. Vauxhall Adam Starlight Headliner – £335

stupid optional extra

It’s nice to sit back in your seat, at a service station and gaze up to your glittering roof lining…..in a Rolls Royce….  In a Vauxhall Adam, it’s about as cringey as Chris Evans on Top Gear.

8. Bentley Bentayga Rotating Breitling – £160,000

stupid optional extras

Nope.  That’s not the price of a new Bentley, that’s the price of a bloody clock!  As far as the term; “stupid optional extra” is concerned, the Breitling option on the Bentayga is surely the definition.

9. Bentley Bentayga Fishing Pack – £80,000

stupid optional extras

I get the idea of sitting by a lake, eating shrimps and waiting for Nemo to bite the bait.  However, choosing between that and a brand new Mercedes E63 AMG shouldn’t be a difficult choice!

10. Rolls Royce Phantom Leather Cool Bag – £4000

stupid optional extras

The Phantom may have gone out of production, but that won’t stop an overpriced chicken cooler from making this list.

11. Mercedes S65 AMG Carbon Exterior Pack – £5,000

stupid optional extras

Now it was difficult to find a picture of this example, which probably suggests that nobody is really keen enough to make a yacht for the road, looking like a cringey lightweight….which it isn’t as it weighs over 2 tonnes!

12. Mercedes AMG GTR Metallic Paint – £7,500

stupid optional extras

Paint options are all over the place in the car market.  But that shouldn’t give Mercedes the excuse to charge £7.5k on a paint job!  That’s pushing standards a bit, don’t you think?

13. Porsche 911 Painted Air Vents – £806

stupid optional extras

It can’t be that expensive to paint wie bits of strip, can it?  You’re better off with a can of spray-paint!

 

 

So there’s 13 examples of just how stupid, optional extras can really be.  Is there anything we missed?  Comment them below!
