The world’s most expensive car key?


Transponder

Transponder

If you are fortunate enough to own an Aston Martin car, then this must be the most expensive (some would claim most silly) optional extra.

Jaeger-LeCoultre have released a watch, and certainly not an ordinary watch, which works with the forthcoming Aston Martin Rapide.  It is called the AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder and it will enable wearers to lock or unlock their car doors by simply touching the sapphire-crystal face.  The aerial curves around the inside of the glass from the four o’clock position (locks the doors) to the eight o’clock position (opens the doors).

The same company previously released a similar watch for use with the Aston Martin DBS.  If you are interested in the watch you will clearly need the Rapide to go with it.  Prices for the car start at £139,950, and the watch to go with it costs £21,850.  The watch also tells the time!
