Rolls Royce converted to hold champagne bar and DJ booth.

London, Mar 10 ( ANI ): A Dutch designer has created the world's flashiest Rolls-Royce, complete with its own champagne bar and DJ booth, and it's proving to be quite a head-turner at parties.

Stef van der Bijl bought a wrecked 1977 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and spent two years converting the iconic British car into the world's most hedonistic motor.

The restored Roller, which has been renamed The Lady of Luxury, now has a fully-equipped, walnut wooden bar, 21 champagne coolers and 100 champagne flutes.

There is also a DJ booth with a nightclub-standard sound system including five amplifiers and 16 speakers.

Despite the wild modifications, the car is road legal and still uses its original 6.75-litre V8 engine.

The modified wings act as speaker walls when in the upright position and a bar when laid flat.

The 30-year-old designer built the car following the success of his previous creation - a 1961 VW Campervan converted into a DJ booth.

"With the DJ bus I found there was a huge market for a unique mobile DJ booth - at parties people want to see iconic gadgets," the Sun quoted him as saying.

"The DJ bus was a true icon for the flower power scene but the Rolls-Royce is the ultimate icon for the rich and famous," he said.

The Lady of Luxury has been rented out at lavish parties across Europe and the UAE but van der Bijl has decided it is time to sell the Rolls to fund his next project.

He is advertising the car for 210,000 pounds, with the Rolls coming with 21 bottles of Armand de Brignac Champagne. ( ANI )
