You read it and maybe stopped and thought, “3,000 iridescent tail feathers”? In a car? How? Why? Well, here’s your closer look at the Rolls-Royce Phantom “Iridescent Opulence.”
The car was delivered to Abu Dhabi Motors on Monday. It is the production version of a 2017 design concept from Nature Squared, a Swiss company that incorporates natural materials into interior surfaces, according to a company press release. The buyer wasn’t named and neither was the price, but a regular Phantom starts at about $460,000.
The feathers were hand-sewn onto open-pore fabric. The dashboard clock is inlaid with mother of pearl. It is, frankly, quite stunning.
