Rolls-Royce’s New Champagne Chest Costs More Than A New BMW Sedan

If you have £37,000 (equal to around $47,500/ €42,500 at today’s exchange rates) lying around, you can get a lot of things including a brand new BMW 520i SE in the UK or a nicely-equipped 330i in America. Or you could just go for Rolls-Royce’s new champagne chest.

While the entry-level 5-Series isn’t ideal, it’s a lot more practical than a storage unit for sparkling wine.

That being said, the chest is a work of art as it features a machined aluminum and carbon fiber chassis just like high-end supercars. The chassis is wrapped in black leather and features an embossed Spirit of Ecstasy logo.

Since the ultra rich can’t be bothered to constantly hold one of the four included hand-blown crystal champagne flutes, the chest has a Tudor Oak wood table – complete with a laser-cut stainless steel inlay – that pops up at the push a button. The flutes feature a polished aluminum base and are arranged, in the chest, to “evoke memories of a V12 engine.”

The party tricks continue elsewhere as the chest has side “hammocks” that automatically deploy to reveal two champagne coolers constructed out of black anodized aluminum and carbon fiber. The chest is also illuminated and features four cotton napkins with “RR” monograms.

Rolls-Royce is known for personalization and the champagne chest is no different. Customers can order bespoke leather covers as well as a snack configuration which sees one of the thermal capsules outfitted with three porcelain bowls that can hold food such as cheese and nuts. There’s also a caviar configuration that holds a 30 gram tin of caviar as well as two Mother of Pearl spoons with anodized aluminum handles.

The champagne chest is the newest member of the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Collective and the company says it is “suitable for the most extravagant of environments from a superyacht to the terrace of a private residence.”

    The way it opens is very cool. Though you’d have to be a major attention starved douchebag to purchase one.

      Nothing screams “attention starved douchebag” more than libtard comments. Isn’t it ironic?

      • Enter Ranting

        Still using the term “libtard?” Haven’t you d-bags come up with anything new?

          Why change something what works so well?

            Oh yeah, conservatives are crushing it! So much winning!

            Aren’t they?

      Relax. Just work harder and smarter. Maybe someday you can afford it too.

      • TheBelltower

        An unintentionally funny comment. Thank you.

    This is when you know that you have F U money.

  • Ary Wisesa

    I don’t understand why people got pissed off at this luxury item or anybody who could afford it…. Come on, anyone with decent taste and good sense would probably admit that it is truly beautiful, masterfully crafted and yes, looks very expensive. There’s nothing wrong to be rich and enjoy the wealth, as long as you get it legally and never forget to share some of your wealth with those who are unfortunate. No need to be envious, it won’t change anything.

    It’s just a fancy box, they probably loose money with every one they sell.

    • Finkployd

      It’s the people buying this that have loose money

      • Bash

        I agree, also I believe that they didn’t make these boxes to sell them, they made them to gift them away to some VVVVip and money lords.
