$20k Golf Cart Will Make Your Rich Friends Jealous

By on September 18, 2012 in ArticlesEntertainment

When you make millions of dollars you can't ride around in just any old golf cart… You need a $20 thousand Garia LSV, the Porsche of golf carts! Garia's new creation is the most expensive golf cart ever and it's worth every penny. This high-end cart is built in the same factory as the Porsche Boxster and Cayenne and shares many design elements found in high-end luxury cars.

Garia has been making custom luxury golf carts for a few years now, with the price tag hitting around $20,000. They have recently taken it up a notch by making a street legal version, starting at around $18k (before you add some premium accessories). So now you can drive from your mansion straight to the course!

The new Garia LSV (Low Speed Vehicle) street legal model is ready for the golf course, country club, estate or private island! The Garia LSV model includes safety equipment to make it street legal, such as full 3-point seatbelts, safety glass,  side mirrors, hydraulic disc brakes and a licence plate holder.  It also has windshield wipers (with a heated windshield option), double wishbone suspension and an automatic electromagnetic parking break.

It has an electric motor that has a peak power of 15hp, which can hit speeds of 25mph and has a range of 25-40 miles. I'm sure they are working on a gas engine or probably a hybrid system for their next model. The lightweight aluminum frame has two seats, or an option for two small rear facing ones in the back. It can hold up to 770lbs, so you and your rich, Jackass imitating friends can all hang off it. As part of the Garia's high-end heritage, the drive train is built by the company that makes Ducati's gearboxes and the aluminum frame is produced by the same company that produces for Aston Martin and Jaguar.

The Garia LSV is fully bespoke, letting you customize the paint job, the color of the hand-stitched leather seats, custom wheels and some interior options. You can pick 10″ or 12″ inch rims, with chrome, aluminum or gun metal options. All details use high-end materials found in luxury cars such as brushed aluminum and leather. You can upgrade from bench to sports seats. The hand-stitched black leather steering wheel is Formula One inspired with a flat bottom and a mounted digital display.

The sportscar-style dashboard is also soft to the touch and has a scorepad and pen holder, golf ball and tee holder and four cup holders.  There is storage in the back, along with two gloveboxes. The best part is the dash-mounted fridge, made by the same company that makes the interior fridges for Rolls-Royce and Bentley. Oh and a stereo and GPS of course.

There is also a limited Mansory edition of the Garia LSV set to come out that's shown below. Mansory is know for their special editions of luxury cars, such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin and Ferrari. It comes with a carbon fiber body kit, aluminum, custom seats and teak wood-lining and flooring. No word if they will be upgrading the engine, like throwing in a Lambo V10 or something.
