Picnicking has never been so elegant, now that Rolls-Royce has added a picnic set to its Phantom model.

Finished in polished aluminum, veneer and leather, this four-person picnic set is just one of the many new additions created by the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in-house Bespoke design and engineering team. About 100 chic and unique bespoke features have been added to the Phantom, but the picnic set certainly has to be the epitome of fine outdoor dining.

“Bespoke is the jewel in our crown, the perfect complement to our luxury product line-up,” explained Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO. “Customers expect a Rolls-Royce Phantom to be tailored to their individual desires and our team of talented designers and craftspeople are more than happy to deliver.”

Bespoke can include anything from personalized tread plates, contrast stitching and seat piping to an individual’s tastes and desires in the form of personalised veneers and unique exterior paints. It also includes items like luggage and glassware. All of the Rolls-Royce’s bespoke items are designed in-house at Goodwood.

The Bespoke picnic set will be on display at the Salon Privé at the Hurlingham Club in London from July 21 to July 23. It was first debuted at the Villa d’Este in Italy back in April.
