10 most outrageous factory options ever

MSN Autos:

There are really only a few important features in a car: brakes, drivetrain, seats, steering, suspension and wheels.

Still, there’s no better way to personalize your vehicle than to order up a few options, so let’s take a look at some of the most outrageous factory-installed options ever devised.

After I posted about the “11 features you no longer see in cars“, I got a tweet from @Jenns79 about this story. Some of these factory options, especially the idea of a record player in the car, are insane.

    I’ll confess: I want an Airscarf. But we must call it something different.

    How about the outrage of the prices and screwy BlueTooth options car makers make you go through to get BlueTooth.

      Agree 100%. There’s a long list of options like that. Why do their sub-par GPS systems cost $4000, or a DVD player with low quality 7″ LCD costs $2500.
