Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 1/23/2015 Nate Martinez

Imagine this scenario: The time has come to place an order for that fancy new sports car you've always wanted. You've amassed a nice chunk of change specifically for this purchase, so you're looking at all your options -- think Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Chevrolet, Nissan, Jaguar, Maserati, or Dodge.


You've got the color nailed down, but what about options? In this realm, options are aplenty. And as you can imagine, they're also not all that cheap. A lot are cool. Some are just silly.

We've compiled a list of options and accessories you can expect to see on your imaginary sports car's build sheet. From a $63,000 paint job to a $550 illuminated badge, you'll be shocked and awed by some of the priciest accoutrements on the market today.

1. Porsche 918 Spyder Magnesium Wheels: $32,500
