Rolls-Royce unveils Phantom Metropolitan Collection at the Mondial de L'Automobile

The Phantom Metropolitan Collection unveiled at the Mondial de L'Automobile in Paris, features exquisite hand-crafted design inspired by the modern metropolis. Just 20 of these beautifully crafted motor cars will be available to commission.

The Phantom Metropolitan
Collection pays homage to the world's great metropolises through the meticulous application of marquetry - the art of inlaying small pieces of wood veneer to form decorative motifs. When open, Phantom's signature picnic table presents occupants with an elevated view of the city, created through the expert application of 500 individual wood veneer pieces. Indeed, the process of hand-cutting, colouring, shaping and applying is so complex these unique objects d'art take an expert wood craftsperson several days to complete. On closing the tables, a different perspective of the cityscape is offered - reflecting the view one gets when effortlessly travelling in the rear of a Phantom.

"I can think of no more fitting location than Paris to debut this remarkable new motor car. This is a city that echoes Rolls-Royce's very special brand promise in perfectly combining the timeless and modern in a manner that celebrates the art of the master craftsperson," said Torsten Muller-Otvos, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. "Our customers across the globe delight in challenging our designers and craftspeople to create true, one-of-a-kind pieces of automotive art. This latest Collection serves to showcase the extraordinary scope for Bespoke personalisation afforded to every patron of the marque."
