We suppose some people wouldn’t mind spending a small fortune for a factory option, especially when they can afford an even greater fortune for the car itself, but $50,000 for brakes?

OK, it’s for the R35 Spec-V, but still, that’s a lot of loot.

By comparison the $6,300 for the Bang & Olufsen speakers on the Audi seem really cheap. Likewise for the $2,900 leather door sills on the Panamera.

You have to have that on the Porsche, don’t you?

But none of this, or the rest of the items on Jalopnik’s list approach the breathtaking cost for a carbon finish on a Bugatti Veyron: $300,000.

Eh, but then again, it’s only slightly over 10 percent of the vehicle’s MSRP.

We say nevermind these ridiculous factory options!

Get an aftermarket one that is absolutely essential. Give your car a few IQ points by adding SmartStart.

Seriously. And it won’t shrink your wallet either.
