If I could only afford one car at any cost it'd be a Rapide. Good find, TC.

Judging by car magazine demo cars I expect you could get a basic Audi A6 to 100k if you tried hard enough.

Wood in that 458 looks pretty tasteful, surprisingly.

I was looking at Top Gear magazine (with the Veyron SS on the cover) and they had a feature on small cars run through a configurator. You can bump the price of a Mini by over 100% with options.

The interior of Trev's Aston looks awful.

Mind you it matches the outside (in that colour)

That's not wood. That's brown leather.

You can't get wood in a Ferrari.

I have to say that the choice of colours for the interior doesn't nesessarily coincide with my own preferences. Mind you, a bright yellow Aston does appeal.....

Alfa Giulietta

Oh bollox, it's in Italian. D'oh!

EDIT: Here's the Porsche one, with 20 911s to start.

There's also an interesting 'Play Engine Sound' bit. The Cayenne Hybrid sounds like it is having a cough.

I did a Continental Flying Spud the other day, but didn't save it. I'll have a crack later and post it up. It was most suave.

Here's my Conti Flying Spud:

Although I'd be requesting an upgrade to SuperSport spec - engine, suspension, brakes, etc and it'd be Mullinered up with no chrome anywhere, black calipers and carbon instead of ali/piano black interior inlays.

Just had a go on the Audi configurator to see how high their models go. A fully loaded A3 1.2TFSI costs 35k and top spec A7 goes to 89k! I know it's not that much of a surprise these days but it's eye-watering nonetheless.

Going back to the Bentley one, you can now create personalised messages on the door sills and headrests for the Mulsanne.

Go Interior > Personalised Threadplates (or Headrest Embroidery for the headrest)



It's loads of fun being childish.
