FOR the Rolls-Royce owner who simply must have everything there's now a way to serve Champagne and caviar to your fellow passengers - for a modest £37,000, plus taxes.
That not inconsiderable sum buys you what Rolls-Royce calls the Champagne Chest and, it says "endows conviviality with one's closest friends, family or business associates."
The Champagne Chest has a chassis made from machined aluminium and carbon fibre, is swathed in Natural Grain black leather embossed with the enigmatic Spirit of Ecstasy and is flanked by Tudor Oak wood, materials found in the marque's cars.
Naturally, should a patron wish to create a Bespoke colour-way, this would of course, be possible, at extra cost.
At the touch of a button the case opens to reveal a Champagne set for four guests. The exterior lid becomes into a beautiful serving tray made of Tudor Oak wood with a laser-cut stainless steel inlay. Four cotton napkins with finely embroidered ‘RR' monograms are discreetly hidden under the lacquered Tudor Oak table.
The Chest is illuminated from the central bay, presenting four hand-blown crystal champagne flutes arranged to evoke memories of a V12 engine. The glass of each is joined by a polished aluminium base, etched with the ‘RR' monogram.
The sides of the Chest automatically deploy, revealing two hammocks adorned in ‘Hotspur Red' Rolls-Royce leather to cradle one's preferred ensemble of either champagne, caviar or canapÃ©s.
Thermal Champagne Coolers made from black anodised aluminium and carbon fibre each proudly bear the ‘RR' emblem, ensure the champagne is maintained at the optimum temperature.
A caviar configuration is available, with two insulated caviar caissons, each accommodating a 30g tin, and complemented by two blini caissons to hold something to spread your caviar upon.
