And no, there is no typo

Now, we’ve all heard of the extravagant accessories Rolls-Royce designs with the 1% in mind. Most of them wear hefty price tags that seem unattainable to us mere mortals and, naturally, they also come with a high level of sophistication.

Rolls-Royce Champagne Chest

The latest creation of Rolls-Royce’s design studios is pretty much the champagne of all champagne sets. It is simply called "Champagne Chest," and although at first sight, it might look suspicious to a Customs employee, it’s the inside that fascinates the most.

So, if you’ve even been inside a Rolls-Royce for longer than a couple of minutes - or close enough to get a good look at its cabin - there’s a high chance you’ll recognize some of the materials used. We bet Rolls-Royce owners will have no problem with that.

But we’ll say it anyway: the Tudor Oak wood adorning the crate as well as the Natural Grain black leather cover embossed with the Spirit of Ecstasy are actually the same materials used in Rolls-Royce cars. Oh, we nearly forgot: Rolls-Royce can, of course, provide any leather color a customer desires, regardless of how eccentric that might be.

Holding everything together is a frame - or chassis if you’re interested in Rolls-Royce PR talk - made of machined aluminum and carbon fiber.

The Champagne Crate is designed for four people. It can be opened by just pressing a button, which is basically where the magic happens in terms of revealing its interior.

Rolls-Royce doesn’t offer size info on its Champagne Crate, but we’ve got to hand it to them, the designers have done a neat job in fitting everything together.

As we mentioned, four people can enjoy the champagne set, and each one of them gets a cotton napkin with the RR logo and a crystal-made, hand-blown champagne flute. Because opulence.

Then there’s the mini-table made of the same Tudor Oak. It is large enough to hold a champagne bottle and the four flutes as well as two 30g caviar tins that complement the set.

If those are not enough to tickle your fancy, then know this: the set also includes three porcelain bowls that can be filled with whatever rich people are eating these days, joined by two mother-of-pearl spoons with anodized aluminum handles "designed so as not to impair the delicate flavor of the caviar."

At this point, you’ll probably do the math on how much the RR Champagne Crate might cost. We’ll spare you the trouble: £37,000, which is about $47,175 or $5,000 more than what you’ll pay for a brand-new 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

But as far as the audacity is concerned, we shouldn’t raise too many eyebrows. After all, for $34,600, Rolls-Royce will also sell you a picnic basket made to go with your Cullinan, Dawn, Ghost, Phantom, or Wraith.
