Rolls-Royce Phantom Metropolitan launches at Paris Motor Show
The Rolls-Royce Phantom Metropolitan was unveiled today at the Paris Motor Show. So popular was this latest bespoke creation that all 20 of the limited edition have already been sold.
Metropolitan features five different marquetry scenes in each Phantom. Every one of the ninety pieces of veneer that make up each facia or table top has undergone four separate processes before being assembled by hand into the background veneer.
Before the finished inlay is pressed checks are made under magnification on a lightbox to ensure that the fit of each piece is perfect and that aesthetically the grain direction and sandshading are even and consistent.
