The most recent work of art that comes from one of the world’s most respected car manufacturers is a 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom Metropolitan, and it is one of the most exciting cars they ever manufactured.
I am using big words now, in order the praise all the hard work invested in the design and building of this car, if that is possible just by using words.
Whichever type of car you like, you have to respect the Rolls. The design itself awakens something ancient in you, something really big. It is blending the old world with the new technologies, bringing the very best, for those who can afford it.
The special thing with this model is the style which was used to design the details for the interior called marquetry. Which is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures.
The good news for all those wealthier people out there, or those of you who really like marquetry, is that Rolls plans to sell twenty of these. And as usually every model can be adjusted to the needs of a buyer.

The first thing you can find very interesting is 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom Metropolitan exterior itself. Not only that this car offers a state of elegance but also a massive proportions. Although size is not the only thing that looks majestic, but the attention to detail.
Designers even used the look of a skyline (referring to the name “Metropolitan”) to choose a color which is Darkest Tungsten, but that is not all. If you are “one of the lucky few”, you could freely chose from the pallet of more than 44,000 different colors and shades, and if you cannot find one that suits you, you could create one with the designers.
On top of all, you even get the silhouette of some of the major cities, placed just behind the rear doors, concealed and hardly noticeable.
