Top 5 Luxurious Car Interiors

by Car Blog Editor on April 4, 2016

When it comes to buying a car, (and not just your standard, everyday car), but an expensive prestige one, then the interior is just as important as the exterior. What’s going on in the inside matters just as much as the appearance from the outside, because when you’re the driver, being comfortable, feeling at home and enjoying your car is the most important thing.

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster
If you’re wanting something truly unique, then the Lamborghini Aventador is the one to fulfil your dreams. Its soft yellow and black combination gives off a wonderfully sporty vibe, which every Lamborghini lover would adore. With a range of in-car entertainment too, boredom won’t ever be an issue. Its quilted seating offers a plush and comfortable experience; ideal for showing off on those long journeys.

Bentley Continental GT V8
If a classy monochrome interior is your idea of heaven, then the inside of the Bentley will suit you nicely. The business-class leather design is perfect, if it’s a sophisticated look you’re craving. Incredibly spacious also, there is plenty of head and legroom for relaxing, and you can easily seat four passengers comfortably.

Maserati Granturismo V8
Drive in luxury with this soft cream and leather Maserati, offering an Italian look; perfect for those on business trips. Its indoor entertainment system is enough to keep you occupied during your daily trips, and the Maserati features handy equipment such as various cup holders, a great sound system and satellite navigation, along with spacious seating with a posh touch.

mclarenMcLaren 675t Coupe Auto
Switch it up a little with the velvet, bespoke interior of the McLaren, which is unlike anything seen before. When it comes to being one of a kind, this supercar has it down to a T, with its unusual choice of material and soft grey and orange colour combination. The racing seats and fancy equipment give the car its desired sports car look. With the central touchscreen and climate controls, this car is the ideal ride for comfort and speed.

Rolls Royce Ghost V12
The diamond black and white leather is a striking colour coordination that produces a luxurious and classy vibe. Its high-class interior offers you the luxury drive you’d expect from a Rolls Royce, as it features spacious seating, and a wide variety of entertainment and handy gadgets. The Ghost is the perfect way to cruise like a king, whilst surrounded yourself in luxury.

If you’re looking to get your own car, whether luxury or not, you should look into car leasing. And don’t worry if credit is an issue, because poor credit car leasing is also an available option.

The new 16 plate has arrived, which means now is the perfect time to look for a new car and acquire one of the top contending number plates. To welcome the new registration into the UK, here is an infographic with some surprising discoveries about registration plates.

We have found some of the most valuable number plates in the world are and what they are worth today. Currently the most valuable number plate in the UK is ‘F1’ which is worth £10,000,000 today! While ‘I D’ (which has nothing to do with the boy band) is worth £350,000, followed by ‘VIP I’ worth £285,000 and ‘CEO I’ worth £154,100.

Why do we need registration plates?

In the UK, registration plates are used to determine a vehicle’s age and place of origin. It is illegal to not have a number plate displayed when a vehicle is driven on public roads.

There are three sections to each registration plate, in order, they consist of the place of origin also known as the ‘local memory tag’ with the ‘age identifier’ followed by a random selection of letters to make the plate unique. There is an active reseller market with individuals and specialist private number plates companies all involved in regtransfers where every special registration attracts its own unique value and transfer price.

Banned registration plates

The DVLA takes great care in preventing inappropriate and offensive registration plates from being made available to the public. This is the case with every new release and this year some variations have been banned for being too obscene such as B16 BUT and OR16 ASM.
