The think tank at Five Star Development Group in Scottsdale has an idea guaranteed to turn heads.

The development company is offering a $198,000 lavish upgrade on wheels to the buyer of one of the company’s two custom homes offered in Paradise Valley. The six-figure, 12-cylinder upgrade is a 2009 Bentley Continental GT. It will be parked in the driveways of the seven-figure homes during open houses over the next two weekends. The homes will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 10-11 and Jan. 17-18.

If buyers are not interested in the Bentley, they have the option of trading it for a 50-hour NetJets card or a one-month-a-year lifetime ownership in Marriott Vacation Club International.

The luxury homes are:

• A 7,848-square-foot Old World European Villa at 8625 N. Via Buena Vista. The walled and gated compound is listed at just under $5 million. The residence includes a master wing with a sitting room and coffee bar; a children’s wing with three bedrooms; an adjacent guesthouse; and a five-car garage.

• A 7,536-square-foot Tuscan estate at 6305 E. Arabian Way. Beyond the expected master suite and a gourmet kitchen, the home has a library, a children’s playroom, a wine cellar with space for more than 600 bottles, an outdoor kitchen adjacent to the pool, and a four-car garage. The list price is nearly $4 million.

The listing agent for the luxury homes is George Hajjar of The Hajjar Group with Realty Executives. As an incentive for Realtors, Hajjar says the buyer’s agent will receive a Breitling Bentley GT Chronograph steel watch (for men), priced at $7,695, or a Cartier Pasha watch (for women), priced at $5,150.

Five Star Development Group, with headquarters in Scottsdale, owns and develops projects in residential, hospitality, retail and industrial categories in Arizona, California and Texas.
