The Elite Choice: World's Most Expensive Things
This one's for the sporty millionaire. New Zealand designers Jamie McLellan and Andy Jacobs have designed a perfectly extravagant kayak - called Kayak 1 - for those looking for some action. The ultra-light single person craft (it weighs only 40bls) is made from carbon fibre, but finished off with accents and panels made from teak, ash and gold-plated brass fittings.
For those who'd rather spend their money on something glitzier, you might want to consider the diamond-studded peacock broach by Graff. The jewel, valued at $100 million, is studded with 1,305 diamonds weighing 120.81 carats; the central stone itself is a fancy vivid blue 20 carat diamond.

Most Expensive Luxury Real Estate
Defying the economic downturn, and growing at a quicker pace than mainstream markets, is the global luxury real estate market. According to a new report by international real estate firm Savills, Hong Kong tops the list of cities with the most expensive luxury real estate. The average luxury home on the island city will cost you $57 million. Tokyo and London round up the Top 3 list.
One piece of expensive real estate up for rent in the US is Beverly House in LA. The vast estate, built by banker Milton Getz in Beverly Hills, was where US president John F Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline honeymooned and also featured in movies like The Godfather and The Bodyguard. Currently the 3.7 acre estate is available on rent, for an awesome $600,000. FYI, it's the most expensive rental price for a home in America.
