Rolls-Royce brings a bespoke touch to its latest meticulously-made Phantom Metropolitan collection. While many customers of the esteemed automotive company will desire distinguishing features to make their car unique from others, Rolls-Royce takes this latest model to another level with a bevy of customized features. The bespoke features decorating the interior – as well as the cars namesake – are all paid in homage to the great metropolitan cities around the world.
As a singular example of the jaw-dropping detail that goes into one of these luxury whips; the process of hand-cutting, coloring, shaping and applying over 500 individual veneer pieces of wood found on the dashboard and rear picnic tables takes an expert wood craftsperson several days to complete. Extending the theme to the cockpit of the car, a custom clock shows 24 of the great cities of the world and their respective time zones. Considering that most Phantoms sold across the globe, 90% of Wraiths and 80% of Ghost cars were commissioned to include some degree of custom design, we can see why Rolls-Royce chooses to put bespoke panache on display for this latest announcement.
