(Newser) – What, exactly, is the point of having a Rolls-Royce if you're not going to get it specifically tailored to your every extravagant whim and desire? Business Insider rounds up 16 of the most over-the-top customizations Rolls-Royce has ever done for its customers. A sampling:

  • Put a built-in thermos in the door. Doesn't sound so crazy until you consider Rolls-Royce had to build an extra door so the design could be crash-tested.
  • Installed a complete picnic set. Including miniature trays off of which you can eat. The whole thing pops up out of the trunk.
  • Installed a complex wine glass storage system in the trunk. Designers had to make absolutely sure the glasses wouldn't shatter if the driver went over a bump.
  • Gave one customer seven sets of wheels. He wanted one for each day of the week.

  • Installed a jewelry box in the dashboard. Enough said.
  • Sourced the wood for one car ... from a tree on the customer's land.
  • Customized the optic lights in the Starlight Headliner. They can be arranged into any constellation on any day, in any location.
  • And the pièce de résistance: One collector car includes 446 diamonds.

The only one off this list that seems kind of cool is sourcing the wood from your land. Makes the car literally a part of your land; that's kind of neat. Also, most of the normal RR wood comes from rare and threatened species, so it's environmentally sound to boot.

I'm a little surprised none of the high-Rollers wanted the engine tweaked for some more horsepower. You can buy a 1000 hp Mustang (Galpin Sports, LA), so my Wraith should at least keep up with a lowly Ford! That, and a paint job that throws off traffic radar! Oh, a larger gas tank and fitted luggage for those high-styling road trips! Oh, FYI: the Wraith is only suitable when you need to carry more than one friend... otherwise the Ferrari California convertible gets the nod.
