Following the introduction of the brand’s new Bespoke accessory, the luxury of a handmade leather seat is no longer limited to the interior of a Rolls-Royce motor vehicle.
The new Pursuit Seat is a modern re-imagination of the traditional portable seat built by the Bespoke Collective at the Rolls-Royce Home in Goodwood, West Sussex. The Pursuit Seat offers instant, portable comfort in town or country, true to the spirit of the original, adding ease and style to the ever-diversified lifestyles of customers. The Pursuit Seat is the newest accessory designed to improve the lifestyle experience of Rolls-Royce customers and is a great perch for flying a drone, drawing a scene or simply pausing to take in the view.
Similar to the Rolls-Royce motor vehicle, only the finest materials used with the utmost precision and ability are considered when designing the Rolls-Royce accessory. The key support of the Pursuit Seat is made of carbon fibre and polished aluminium for an optimum strength-to-weight ratio. With its fully height-adjustable seat, the accessory is built with the utmost comfort in mind.
“We have applied Sir Henry Royce’s maxim, ‘Take the best that exists and make it better’, to a quintessentially British product. Elevated to Rolls-Royce’s precise and exacting standards yet true to the original concept, the Pursuit Seat has been reimagined for a contemporary world. Our clients can now enjoy the comfort of a Rolls-Royce seat, no matter the activity or where it may lead.
“We look to create accessories that enhance our clients’ lifestyles. Like every Bespoke commission, each detail of the Pursuit Seat has been minutely considered and meticulously designed, then handcrafted using the very finest materials. The marriage of carbon fibre, polished aluminium and Rolls-Royce leather demonstrates the art of contemporary craftsmanship.”
Matthew Danton, Rolls-Royce Bespoke Designer
If you finds yourself at an outdoor performance, or even a trackside at a motorsport event, a discreet pocket on the outer leather seat provides a secure ticket repository. In the event of extra time, stills and curtain-calls, a thin aluminium torch, finished with a double-R Honour badge, is stored in the seat hinge, ensuring a safe return to your motor vehicle.
The seat is made of the finest Rolls-Royce leather and embossed with the Spirit of Ecstasy. Customers may select from a variety of Bespoke colours to complement or contrast the interior of their vehicle.
The softly flared aluminium ferrule at the end of the stick offers a strong grip on hard surfaces, while the retractable spike, cleverly hidden inside, provides the same protection on grass and other soft soils.
The Pursuit Seat fits perfectly into the Cullinan Recreation Module, reflecting the character of the #EffortlessEverywhere car; its compact size and elegant leather case also allow it to be mounted in any Rolls-Royce motor vehicle.
The Pursuit Seat can be bought individually or as a pair through the Rolls-Royce Boutique and at dealerships worldwide. Prices for an individual seat start at GBP 6,581, excluding local taxes.
