Top 5 Luxury Car Accessories
At Hyperformance we’re used to customers requesting cover for special modifications on their cars. No fluffy dice for these vehicles!
So what sorts of accessories or modifications do high end car owners opt for? We’ve researched some of our favourites and come up with some luxuries that will get you and your car noticed.
Customised Car Covers
Owners of high value cars wrap them up for protection against the elements as carefully as they would their first-born child, so it’s no surprise that there’s a good market for protective car covers.
If you’ve got a Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, BMW or one of many other makes of prestigious vehicle, you can choose from a range of customised, breathable and waterproof car covers to ensure your car stays in pristine condition.
Expensive Paint Job
Sometimes, the car itself just isn’t enough of a statement. Why have a racy red Ferrari when you can have a racy red Ferrari…with flames! Art-loving owners tempted into a bespoke and expensive paint job certainly get noticed.
However, there’s no denying that an original piece of car art is the ultimate personalised modification; if your preferences run to tasteful airbrush artwork and custom painting on your car, there are companies in the UK which specialise in these services, from simple logos and graphics to a full-blown original work of art.
If you want to feel like a total celebrity, the ultimate modification has to be a completely bespoke car interior. Whilst the standard interiors of most luxury vehicles are not to be sniffed at, some owners have very specific ideas about styling and craftsmanship.
From simple steering wheel covers or bespoke leather trim to a complete interior conversion, it’s possible to completely transform the interior of most larger vehicles. We’ve encountered options to add luxurious entertainment consoles and mood lighting, fold-away tables and drinks cabinets or even a shotgun cabinet.
On a more serious note, the security of any high value vehicle should always be a priority for owners. Car thieves are using ever more sophisticated techniques to gain access to luxury cars, even managing to bypass traditional alarms and immobilisers.
Increasingly, owners of prestigious vehicles are buying car tracking devices and services which are apparently very effective at recovering stolen vehicles quickly.
For high value vehicles, it’s often a condition of insurance that a tracking device is fitted, so there is now a real call for these services. Even where the tracker is not a condition of insurance, having one fitted improves your car’s security, so it may actually reduce your insurance premiums.
Can a chauffeur be described as an accessory? If you’re seeking to travel anywhere with ease and in superb comfort, we think a chauffeur is, indeed, the ultimate “extra”. And if the manner of your arrival is just as important as your mode of travel, nothing announces your status to the world with quite as much style and class as having a smartly-dressed chauffeur open the door for you.
Chauffeurs can be hired for short or longer-term periods, so if you’re looking to make a classy impression for a special occasion, a chauffeur could be the answer.
It’s important to let your insurer know about any modifications made to your car when you take out or renew insurance, as it might affect the cover and premium. You’ll also need to advise your insurance company if you intend another person, such as a chauffeur, to drive your car for short periods.
