  • The Koenigsegg Jesko can be had in bare carbon for a cool half million dollars
  • Mercedes-Maybach will charge you $60,000 for granite trim
  • The $20,000 wheels on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS are just the start

We all know used and new cars are more expensive. We also know we’ve got the chip shortage to thank for that, along with record inflation, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the mid-80s. However, what some may not know, is just how far things go. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS has $20,000 magnesium wheels, and that’s just a start. These are the most expensive new car options we could find.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS has $20,000 magnesium wheels

Let’s start with those magnesium wheels. Now, keep in mind this is on the previous-gen Porsche 911 GT2 RS. As of now, the only new RS car we have is the Cayman GT4 RS, which also has magnesium wheels. But those ones aren’t $20,000. The magnesium wheels Porsche will charge you $20K for are put there for a reason other than profits. They shave off 25 lbs a wheel.

The Ferrari 488 Pista upsets Porsche with $41,400 carbon fiber wheels

In keeping with light wheels, meet the next most expensive new car option. That honor goes to, predictably, Ferrari, and the carbon fiber wheels on the Ferrari 488 Pista. They’re even lighter than Porsche’s at 17 lbs, and they cost nearly double at $41,400.

The Ferrari SF90 has an option that costs as much as a Toyota Supra

Want to spend enough money to buy a new Toyota Supra on an option? The Ferrari SF90’s Assetto Fiorano pack adds or rather drops, 66lbs of body weight via carbon fiber bits on the undercarriage, a titanium exhaust, as well as stiffer springs. For $56,600. We’d rather have a base SF90 and a Supra for daily use, thanks.

Mercedes-Maybach will charge you $60,600 for granite trim

Now for the complete opposite. Mercedes-Maybach will happily fill your new car with rocks, in the form of granite trim. Merc is cagey on the pricing, but the 2015 era of Maybachs included granite trim as a roughly $60,000 option depending on how much of the stuff you want.

It’s nearly half a million dollars for this Koenigsegg Jesko option

Finally, the most expensive option on a new car. It’s a bit tough to put a hard figure on this one, largely due to the vast customization on the Koenigsegg Jesko. Purportedly, the Jesko’s gorgeous orange paint (or any paint) can be shod, leaving a bare carbon finish for $443,400. For the cost of a house, you can remove things from a car. Wild world, and we expect things to only get wilder from here.
