1. 2014 Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase
Even if you know nothing about cars, the name Rolls-Royce just sounds expensive. If you’re a person of “normal” means the idea of ever driving one of these finely crafted machines seems about as likely as winning the lottery or being abducted by aliens… while you cash in your winning ticket.
The Phantom sedan is this brand’s flagship model and it shows; standing next to it the car is massive and accordingly it carries a suitably ample price tag – in the neighborhood of $400,000. Of course customers can consider a host of appropriately priced options.
One of the more expensive is Rolls-Royce’s frivolous-sounding-but-oh-so-cool Starlight Headliner. This feature mimics the twinkling glow of an evening sky. Hundreds upon hundreds of fiber-optic lights are hand-woven into the cabin’s ceiling material. With the Phantom this option stickers for $9,000, but in the Wraith it’s even more expensive, nearly 13 grand. But that’s not all.
Phantom owners can also shell out $19,450 for a special drinks cabinet or they can spring for divided, reclining rear seats, an option that costs $34,400.
