We've seen some interesting Rolls-Royce conversions over the years, from hunting jeeps and hot rods to armored limos and sofas. But this one is surely toast of the town.
Commissioned in 1984 by Krug Champagne – one of the leading brands in the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy group – this panel van/shooting brake is based on a 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II. It's got two seats up front for driver and passenger and a pair of refrigerators in the back. Adorned with special Krug livery in white and burgundy with acres of chrome, the attention to detail goes down all the way to the special cork keyfob which you can see in the gallery below.
It was sold by the vineyard a few years back, but has now been reacquired, returning to the House of Krug in Reims, Champagne-Ardenne, France, to serve as a museum piece.
