The Bachelorette Season 9 premiered with two dozen hunky, eligible bachelors. (OK, maybe more like 20 once you eliminate all the creeps, kooks, and weirdos.) But the real breathtaking beauty of the season isn't one of the guys. It's not even Desiree Hartsock herself. It's the convertible Des in which gets to motor around Malibu.
The wheels in question? An aqua-blue Bentley GTC V-8 convertible with a six-figure price tag. (Breathe, Wetpaint, breathe... Control your jealousy...)
Ready for some serious sticker shock? Had Des bought it herself, the aspiring fashion designer would have had to fork over $224,215 for the keys, according to USA Today.
Now, the base model isn't quite that expensive: It turns out that the ride has been tricked out with some pricy accessories. Seats that warm your neck while ventilating your behind and massaging your back are pretty sweet, but they also cost $1,820 extra. And would you like a rearview camera in addition to your rearview mirror? That's another $1,160. (Can't Des just flip the camera on her iPhone for the same effect? Hello.)
Oh, and that beautiful turquoise color everyone's raving about? That's just a nominal uptick... to the tune of $4,355.
The newspaper reports that the car is just on loan from a Beverly Hills dealership. Sorry 'bout that, Des. But her loss can be your gain — for the right price, of course. Do you think that Bentley dealer accepts Monopoly money?
