Just when you thought the world of supercar ownership couldn’t get any more ridiculous, along comes a product that makes the £9.5 million Bugatti La Voutire Noire look like good value.

Testing the theory that a fool and their money are easily parted, ‘luxury wristwear’ firm Senturion Key has just announced plans for a wrist-worn car key that costs £211,550.

Yep, that’s a car key that costs the same as a whole Ferrari 488 or McLaren 720S.

Space materials

The out-of-this-world price is attached to materials that are literally out of this world as the S177 Full Meteorite is made using precious metals from actual meteorites.

The makers say the diamond-studded monstrosity is fashioned from 4.9 billion-year-old meteorite found in African and created using specially developed techniques. Only seven will be made.

The S177 is designed to be worn on the wrist and can be synced with any supercar’s keyless entry system allowing royalty, rappers and footballers to unlock and start their cars without touching a key.

Royal tastes

Among those seen wearing Senturion keys in the past are the Sultan of Brunei, Prince Albert II of Monaco, Olympic champion Usain Bolt and David Luiz, who bought 30 for his Chelsea teammates after their 2017 Premiership win.

A spokesman for Senturion said: “This is a unique opportunity for someone to strap a shooting star to their wrist and have it open and start their supercar.”

If £200,000 is a bit steep, never fear, you can pick up one of the firm’s entry-level titanium keys for a mere £16,000. Or you could buy yourself a VW Polo.
