Revealed: Five Most Expensive Car Accessories In The GCC

From diamond–encrusted rims to luxurious audio systems, the flashiest add-ons, according to Carmudi.com.

Dubai’s roads are replete with uber-luxurious cars, and it’s not hard to spot a gold-plated supercar or possibly, even a diamond–encrusted one.

The emirate even hosted the world’s most expensive car, a gold Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 made from a 500kg solid block of gold. Priced at $7.4 million (Dhs27 million), the car was created by Lamborghini and Robert Gülpen.

Customising a car however, can be a lengthy and costly process and may cost more than an average car itself, according to online vehicle marketplace Carmudi.

The company did a survey and came up with the priciest car add-ons that the ultra-rich are buying in the region.

With a whopping price tag of $14 million, the world’s most expensive number plate ‘1’, auctioned in the UAE, represents more than just wealth, status or vanity, says Carmudi. It is an investment that quadruples the price of your car.

Price: $1 million (Dhs3.67 million)

Asanti Wheels offers 22-inch wheels studded with diamonds, and also a 24-hour security guard to watch the rims for a whole year.

An Asanti spokesperson said: “With the response we gathered from the public on these rims, we could confidently affirm that our target market is everyone that appreciates art and the art of dreaming.”
