Phantom Metropolitan Collection launched

Rolls-Royce’s Bespoke division has unveiled the Phantom Metropolitan Collection, of which only 20 examples are going to be built.

Identifying this particular edition is a hand-painted coachline that portrays an abstract city skyline. Paintwork choice is essentially limitless, as buyers can have their Metropolitan Collection car finished in whatever colour they desire.

The really special features are inside the cabin, though. At first glance, the city views adorning the dashboard and picnic tables appear to be decals. However, take a closer look and it’s revealed that the effect has been achieved by marquetry, a process involving 500 individual wood veneer inlays. The result is remarkable.

Other interior touches include a unique clock which has 24 world cities and their time zones represented on its rotating bezel. The seats meanwhile are upholstered in Aetherius Grey leather, with those in the rear bearing a subtle embroidered skyscraper motif.
