Top 10: Best car keys you’ve ever seen

From the scrap metal used in classic car keys to the new high tech displays which can compete with some gadgets in new ones, car keys have evolved differently and much slower than the “things” surrounding the “holes” in which only a single pattern will fit.

In an era in which plastic is the next wave when talking about car interiors, no matter if these vehicles are produced by luxury companies or for third world countries, inautonews.com is bringing you a top of the best car keys ever made and if we forgotten something from the list, please excuse us because we’re still under the holiday influence.

Aston Martin
Aston Marin calls this … the Emotional Control Unit! Is made out of Sapphire Crystal! Lose the key, and you pay US$2,000!

And if you want more, Aston in collaboration with Jaeger-LeCoultre is offering you a $34,000 watch that can unlock your Aston. To open the doors, you have to touch the area between eight and nine o’clock. To lock the car, just press the opposite side; the area between three and four o’clock. Good day Mr. Bond …

Bugatti’s Speed Key
To unlock the entire power of a Bugatti Veyron you need a second key. Yes … this special key will lower the chassis to 6.5cm (from 12.5cm), the front air diffusers shut and the car begins a series of safety checks. It will take just a few seconds, and the Veyron is now ready for 400+ km/h speeds.

Koenigsegg
From Sweeden with love. If you want something that’s very rare and extremely fast, you can get a Koenigsegg. But not only the car is special.
The key … (I’m not sure if I’m using the proper word here… ) is made from sterling silver and looks more like a high-tech grenade.

Spyker
Just like Koenigsegg, Spyker is very very unique. The company was founded in 1999 and since 2000 the company has been building only ultra-exclusive sports cars like the C8 Laviolette and C8 Spyder.

Pagani
When you talk about cars and Italy, there’s only one region where most of them are located. That’s Modena. Modena is the home of Ferrari, De Tomaso, Lamborghini and Maserati.

Pagani was founded in 1998 by Argentinian Horacio Pagani who formerly managed Lamborghini‘s composites. Pagani builds extremely fast cars. In 2010 a Zonda R was able to complete the Nurburgring in just 6:47. Everything that’s less than 7 seconds at Nurburgring is seriously fast!

The key is a miniature model of the vehicle and is made of the same aluminum as used in the wheels on the Huayra. It spits into two halves, one of which is used in the ignition while the other has a USB stick.

Tesla
When you buy a Model S Sedan, you get the car and a miniature model. That miniature is actually the key fob. It looks very polished – it’s slick, it’s shiny and it has no visible buttons. But most importantly – there’s no spare key hidden inside.

BMW’s i8 “key:

The BMW i8 comes with a lot of technologies …. and a smart key fob. It looks and performs like no ordinary car key.

It includes a high-resolution screen that will display various useful information such as charge levels, time on a charge and distance the car can travel before needed another recharge.
