The amount you'll actually pay for a car can soon escalate. When you start adding some options. Take the new mercedes, my back gls, for example. It starts from 158 000 pounds, but if you add all the official options that are available for it, the price will come to 217 000 pounds. That means you have increased the price by 38 over the starting list – price, of course, with a brand. Like my back, you can give them a blank check and they'll fit all sorts of bespoke items that aren't on the official options list to your card. The price can go way way higher still but i'm, not interested in that. Okay. The thing that i'm interested in is finding out how much you can increase a car's price buy by ticking all the official listed options. So what i've done is come up with a list of cars where you can increase their price by a percentage of greater than 38 percent, so more than you can increase the price of the my back gls buy by ticking the official options, all of them now The cars on this list actually range from normal family cars to supercars and i've, ranked them, based on the percentage increase in their price that you can get by ticking. All the options now i've ignored some brands, such as rolls royce bentley and aston martin, because they don't actually list the price of their options. You know, if you have to ask: we obviously can't afford them right now before we get into this video.

First up on my list of increasing the car's price by adding all the options is the jeep renegade? If you start with an entry level, two wheel drive longitude model with a 120 horsepower. Petrol engine it'll cost a little over 23 000 pounds. But then, if you tick every single box you can on the options list, it will add almost 9 000 pounds to the price of the car. That means this stinky jeep ends up costing more than 32 000 pounds, which is a ' increase over the original list.
Price so that's one percent more of an increase in the price over that than with maybach. Actually one of the most expensive options on the jeep is the 1200 pound panoramic glass roof. But what also puts up the price are all the vinyl, decals and bumper trims. You can get for it good thing. You can actually save around 1400 pounds on average, if you buy a jeep renegade through car wang. Just saying lotus makes lightweight stripped out sports cars. So if you want any extra equipment at all it's going to cost you extra but you'll, be surprised how much a few extra options will actually set. You back. Well, if you add all the options available on an elite sport 220, it will turn a 42 000 sports car into a 63 000 pounds, one that's an increase in its price by 50 percent. Some of the options are fairly reasonable. Like the floor mats, they only cost 100 pounds. However, if you want the pearl effect, paint you're talking 200 pounds, a carbon fiber hard top costs, another three grand while a titanium exhaust will set you back four thousand pounds and who's going to pay 1 200 pounds for a lightweight battery that's ridiculous maserati is trying Its best to be like an italian version of audi mercedes of bmw, so i guess you can't blame it for jacking at the price of its optional extras, just to be, like the germans, take the ghibli hybrid, for example.
It starts from just over 58 000 pounds. So it's the cheapest new maserati you can buy, but you can add so many options to this car that it could end up costing you 60 more than this original starting price. This hybrid salute can set you back more than 93 000 pounds. If you tick everything on the options list, a big chunk of that figure comes from stuff. Like the 2 640 pound, noble blue paint and the optional 21 inch alloy wheels. They cost more than 4 400 pounds and you'll need 5125 pounds. If you want softer leather on your seats, where are they getting these cows from next up? Is the mclaren 720s? Okay? So you knew there was going to be a supercar more less at some point and here's one already now everything on these cars always cost a fortune. I mean you'll need more than 208 000 pounds just to get a basic 720s, but that's just the beginning of the story. Now, of course, you can pay mclaren a whole ton of money for a bunch of bespoke options, just for you, but that's. Not what we're talking about in this video it's all about the official options and even if you limit yourself to the ones on the standard option list and you tick them all you'll end up paying more than 360 000 pounds for the car that's a 73 increase On top of the original list price, but it's still less than half what a mclaren center cost, so i guess it's still a bit of a bargain.
Now the most expensive official option you can fit on that car is the paint. Mclaren already has a load of colours to choose from, but if you want your car in a special unique shade, it'll cost you 7 750 pounds. The carbon fiber racing seats, they're, not much cheaper either. They'Ll set you back 5 120 pounds, thankfully that's for a pair, not just for one of them, and at least mccarran is looking out for its american buyers, because you can get extra wide bucket seats for the same price. Okay, let's bring things back down to earth. After the mclaren, this is a mini three door, hatchback it's, nothing particularly special, and you can pick up a cooper classic model for less than eighteen thousand pounds, not a classic mini cooper. A cooper classic is just the name of a trim. Anyhow, if you load this car up with every single optional extra, you can get for it. You'Ll end up paying almost 31 000 pounds for the car that's 73 more than the standard car cost. Actually, when you move the decimal point, it's 0.1, more than the increase that you can have in that mclaren 720s, which is why the mini goes ahead on this list. Now, one of the priciest options on the mini is the leather interior. Well, actually, it's, not even real leather it's, carbon black leatherette, which sounds pretty tacky to be honest, but it still costs 1300 pounds. Thankfully, though, you can actually save around 2 000 pounds on average, if you buy a mini through car wow, so that's enough to pay for a few fancy upgrades isn't it.
In fact, if you click on the pop out button up there, you can see the offers available on the mini right now go check it out, we're, coming back to supercars for the next car on this list and it's the ferrari f8 tribute – and it comes with Some of the most insanely expensive official options ever the standard car will set you back more than 203 thousand pounds, but ferrari is all too happy to sell. You 185 000 pounds worth of optional extras, and these are just the normal upgrades. I haven't included any of the fancy one off paint, jobs or exclusive carbon bits, and even without those, the final car fully loaded with all the official options costs almost '0 000 pounds, which is 91 more than its original price. In fact, you could almost buy two of the actual basic car for that price. The most insane upgrade is the optional carbon fiber wheels. They cost 4 800 pounds that's, not for the four of them: that's 4 800 pounds each so that's, almost 20 grand for a set of wheels, which is bonkers what's. Even worse, though, is that apple carplay isn't standard, which is on most cars, if you're in this ferrari, for some reason, it's 2 400 pounds – you can get yourself two brand new top spec iphones for that it's nuts. Now, if you want to see me race, a ferrari against some other cars in a drag race, click on the pop up banner up there to go check it out it's one of my favorite races, actually it's, really good.
Now you wouldn't think that you could increase the price of a normal family hatchback by a greater percentage than you. Could a ferrari would yeah? Well, you can, if you go for a bmw one series: an entry level, 118 ise costs around twenty two thousand pounds pretty reasonable, but you can add almost nineteen thousand pounds worth of options to that. Now. This jacks up the price to more than thirty nine thousand pounds for a slow one series: that's a 94 increase over the original price, it's crazy. Now the thing with the bmw is that it's quite sparta, you start ticking things that you really think you want. You know stuff, like leather seats, a panoramic glass roof and some upgraded safety kit. Now, each of those costs a grand each and slowly but surely the price just starts climbing and climbing next thing you know ' grand madness now, if you're looking for a one series, click on the pop up banner up there to watch my in depth, video review Of that car, the next car on this is the jaguar, xf and we're getting into some properly crazy option prices now, because it's actually possible to double the xf starting price with just some optional extras. If you pick a d200 diesel model in s trim, it starts at less than 33 000 pounds fairly reasonable that, but you can just keep on piling on the options and accessories until you've spent more than 65 000 pounds on the car that's.
An increase of 101 percent on the original price, some of the most expensive options are the fancy 20 inch alloy wheels, which cost 2 400 pounds and there's some seriously posh leather trim. You can get for 2050 pounds and you'll need an extra 2 600 pounds. If you want ventilated massage seats, which, of course you do good thing, you can save an average of 700 pounds on a new jacket xf, if you buy through car wine. Just saying the second place on my list goes to range rover, but it's, not some fully kitted out long, wheelbase range rover, oh no it's, actually an evoque and not even a top spec car it's, the d165 front wheel, drive version with a manual gearbox, so as Basic as an invoke comes, this car starts out pretty cheap. You can buy one for around 33 000 pounds it's, alright, but there's. Also so many options and accessories available. It will blow your mind if you tick all the boxes. Literally, every single one you'll end up spending more than 36 000 pounds just on options, it's a bit like the jaguar xf, actually because it's, the nice alloys and the fancier seats that jack at the price. If you want some 20 inch wheels for an evoque, that would be 2 300 pounds and the 14 way adjustable front seats cost almost 2 600 pounds. All this means that you could end up paying nearly seventy thousand pounds for an evoke that's one hundred and ten percent.
On top of the starting price. You could actually buy a big full size range rover for that it's nuts, so it's pretty handy that you can save an average of 2 500 pounds on average. If you buy a range rover revoked through carwash, can you guess which brand takes the number one spot on this list? Any ideas? Well, it's porsche had to be didn't. It you see porsche. Is the king of expensive, optional extras, but it's, not a 911 or a panamera, or a thai can i'm talking about when you work it out as a percentage it's? Actually the macan, which has the greatest price increase? If you add all the available options, you see, you can actually get an entry level macan for around 47 000 pounds, but that price starts to rocket as soon as you add any of porsche's expensive options. If you decide you want everything, like literally everything on the options list, it'll end up costing you a further 56 000 pounds on top the price of the car. You can understand some of the prices like the 4 000 custom made luggage. Look at that, but a tiny bit of leather trim on the air vents cost more than 1 000 pounds who's going to pay for that leather trim on the air vents. All this means, though, that you could end up forking out more than 103 000 pounds from a card it's insane it's an increase of 120 over the original starting price.
In fact, if you go crazy on the options list for a macan you'll end up paying more for it than you would for a 911 carrera, 4s that's, obviously without any options, starting an option, store them, and then the price of that will rise as well. Now, what do you think of the cars on this list? Maybe we missed some, maybe there's some others where you can increase the price by more than that. My backs increase of 38 to find out, though, if you click on the pop out banner there, you can go to the car wow configurator and you can try building lots of different cars and adding all their options and seeing if you can find some cars, which Should have been on this list if you can find something you can increase their price by more than 38 by ticking all the options then note them down in the comments box below with the price.
