Dig deep if you want to treat yourself in one of these over-the-top luxuries.
Most Expensive...Coffee: $10,120/200 g
Terra Nerra: Palm civet cats “process” Terra Nera’s O-Grade coffee beans, which are then hand-collected and roasted in the Peruvian Andes. The beans get their rich flavor from the digestive enzymes of the civet. Beans come in 24-carat-gold-plated sacks and are custom-ground to the customer’s preference.
Most Expensive...Cocktail: $12,916
Winston: Australian bartender Joel Heffernan broke the record for the world’s most expensive cocktail with his Winston, concocted with 1858 Croizet cognac (the bottle a $157,000 value), Grand Marnier Quintessence, Chartreuse Vieillissement Exceptionnellement Prolongé, a dash of Angostura bitters and chocolate nutmeg dust.
Most Expensive...Car: $2,400,000
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: Don’t race this French sports car down when you pull up next to it at a stoplight. You won’t have a chance. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, and top speed is 267 mph. And of course, there’s a price to pay for speed, the most expensive in the world for a street-produced model.
Most Expensive...U.S. Hotel Room: $2,279 a night
The Ranch at Rock Creek: This lodge in Philipsburg, Mont., sits at the base of John Long Mountains. But consider the extras that come with a double, nonsuite room: all meals included, plus a mountain bike provided upon arrival.
Most Expensive...Airline Ticket: $100,380
Singapore to Sydney: Dot-com millionaire Julian Hayward bid on and bought this ticket, an opportunity to be on the launch of Singapore Airlines’ A380 service in 2007. His spot in seat 1A (well, suite 1A, fitted with a double bed) allowed him the distinction of being the first commercial passenger to reach his destination on an A380.
