The $1.5 Million Swarovski Kuga Takes Luxury Options to the Next Level

— February 9, 2015 — Autos
You have to wonder just how much the Swarovski Ford Kuga would cost to insure. This blinged-out SUV is being offered by Jennings Ford in the UK. For those who don't live in the UK or follow the automotive industry, the relatively small country has a high concentration of luxury cars. The Ford Kuga, which is more or less an Escape, doesn't necessarily fall into the "luxury" category. However, that changes when you add $1.5 million worth of Swarovski crystals to the exterior.

Those looking to drive the Swarovski Ford Kuga will need to pony up the aforementioned cash and wait two months for the crystals to be applied. Crystals on cars are nothing new, but this is the first time a normal dealership has offered the package. If someone bites on the Swarovski Ford Kuga, expect to see more dealerships try this tactic.
