Rolls-Royce’s £37,000 champagne cooler is the ultimate car accessory

Rolls-Royce has entered the world of car-based merchandise –  not by selling baseball caps or aftershave, but with a carbon fibre, oak and stainless steel champagne chest.

It’s a cool bit of kit, as you’d hope for £37,000. The Rolls-Royce of picnic hampers, if you will. A single button-press opens the chest up to reveal champagne flutes for four guests.

The lid turns into a serving tray made of Tudor oak, with a laser-cut stainless steel inlay. Four cotton napkins are also displayed, complete with embroidered ‘RR’ monograms.

While the chest comes exquisitely appointed as standard, this is Rolls-Royce. So you can have it modified to your exact colour choice. Presumably, if you try your luck at keeping Cava inside, it’ll snap shut on you automatically. 

The illuminated central bay shows off the hand-blown crystal glasses, which are tactically arranged to look like inlets on a Rolls-Royce engine. A shame there are only four, then, rather than 12.

The sides of the chest pop out to reveal two ‘Hotspur Red’ leather hammocks, suitable for cradling anything from caviar to canapés. There are also two mother-of-pearl spoons with anodised aluminium handles.

Thermal champagne coolers keep your bubbly chilled, and they, like the chest, are made from aluminium and carbon fibre.

“The Champagne Chest by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a contemporary and sociable addition to the Accessories Collection,” said Gavin Hartley of Rolls-Royce.

“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.”
