Last year’s £3,000 Aston Martin Surf buggy from Silver Cross takes second fiddle to their latest luxury buggy. Available exclusively at Harrods as of yesterday and limited to just 50 units, this special edition Silver Cross Balmoral come with a hefty £5,000 (about $8,000) price tag. And the Rolls-Royce of prams is presented with many bells and whistles to go with the price.
Its hood and matching apron are covered in red hand-stitched leather, while the buggy carriage is made from metallic silver. The red and polished silver color combination can also be seen on the C-spring chassis. The buggy also feature Balmoral’s signature large white wheels, without them of course a Balmoral will not be a Balmoral. In addition to red, special edition is also offered in four other statement colors.
To make sure that no one mistakes the special edition to the regular £1,450 ($2,300) Balmoral, it comes with a “Bespoke Range” logo identification plate. If you want, you can even get a plaque fitted with your toddler’s name engraved on it. All these minor customizations are there to ensure everyone in the park knows who ride on these fancy wheels.
The Silver Cross is a company that’ been in the business of making baby buggies since 1877 and the Balmoral is literally their jewel in the crown. Royals from the Queen, Prince Charles, and Princess Diana to more recently Prince George had rides on their buggy and there are plenty of pictures to prove it. Instead of the old fashioned Balmoral, Prince George though travel in a more modern Silver Cross Elegance.
