Rolls-Royce has a new addition to its range of fine accessories. The Champagne Chest is an accouterment designed to be suitable for “the most extravagant of environments from a superyacht to the terrace of a private residence.” The British marque is proud to announce the device is built to the high quality and craftsmanship levels to which the actual Rolls-Royce cars are made.
A machined aluminum and carbon fiber chassis is used as a foundation and is the place where the designers have put the Spirit of Ecstasy logo flanked by Tudor Oak wood – such materials can be found in the marque’s vehicles as well. At the touch of a button, the case opens to reveal a set of champagne glasses for four guests. The lid extends into a serving tray.

The case is illuminated from the central bay “presenting four hand-blown crystal champagne flutes arranged to evoke memories of a V12 engine.” There’s a polished aluminum base with RR lettering for each flute. The sides of the Chest deploy to reveal two hammocks to cradle one’s preferred ensemble of either champagne, caviar or canapés.
“The Champagne Chest by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a contemporary and sociable addition to the Accessories Collection,” Gavin Hartley, Head of Bespoke Design at Rolls, comments. “The approach is that of designing a Rolls-Royce motor car; the finest materials are married with pinnacle engineering to provide an experience like no other. The Champagne Chest is crafted for those that seek a heightened sense of occasion in an elegant, entertaining manner and offers the irresistible allure of gadgetry.”
Rolls-Royce will sell the new Champagne Chest through its dealers worldwide. Prices start from £37,000 excluding local taxes, which equals to about $47,317 at the current exchange rates.
