Krug Champagne Recovers Unique Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow
All Rolls-Royces are special, to paraphrase George Orwell, but some are more special than others. Take this 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II, for example. In 1984, Krug Champagne acquired the vehicle and had it retrofitted to the form you see here: an extended-roof panel van/shooting brake, with two seats up front and two refrigerators in the back.
Decked out in white and burgundy with Krug's crest and more chrome than a Google developers' conference, the winery – now part of the Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy group – sold the vehicle a number of years ago, but has since relocated it and acquired it anew. The unique, one-of-a-kind Rolls will be displayed at the House of Krug in Reims, Champagne-Ardenne, France.
