Rolls-Royce has done it; the Zenith collection marks the British car maker’s remarkable, bespoke Phantom models’ end-of-the-line, and the only thing that was missing was a picnic hamper.
Rolls Royce’s artisans are cable of manufacture every customer’s desire to the smallest of detail, and it shows in the plethora of bespoke models released over the course of time, but to truly complete its ultimate product, Rolls Royce is now offering a rare and collectable addition to the Zenith line-up: a picnic hamper.
As announced earlier this year, only 50 Phantom models will be built, featuring both the Drophead Coupé and Coupé models, both of which have been scheduled to leave the stage at the end of the year.
According to Rolls-Royce, collectors and patrons of these ultimate Rollers have asked the marque to enrich their vehicles with an exclusive Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team product. The latter has responded by creating a bespoke picnic hamper.
Yes, really, and you can’t have one; because only 50 will be made, each corresponding to the identification number of the Zenith Phantom it comes with.
The hamper, crafted from American Walnut wood and natural grain leather, finished in a choice of three color combinations matching the interior of the cars themselves, will complete the trinity of objects created under the Phantom Zenith Collection, joining the motor car and a unique metal ingot (a single piece of the Phantom assembly line from the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England).
Furthermore, Piano Black picnic tables housed within the hamper fold out on engraved-aluminium hinges (like the armrest cappings inside the car), while the leather and wood interior shelving of the hamper contains lead crystal wine glasses, handmade stainless steel cutlery, napkins embroidered with the Rolls-Royce monogram in Arctic White, a handcrafted American Walnut chopping board, and unique crockery, with painted black and platinum detail around the edges.
The price for a picnic hamper is undisclosed, but expect it to cost more than the average car. No, make that a sports car.
