Car is filled with real diamonds

In the Middle East a lot of people are insanely wealthy. For these incredibly wealthy people, you can't simply use LED lights inside of a Rolls-Royce Phantom to make the headliner in other places to look like the nighttime sky. For these incredibly wealthy oil barons, you have to use diamonds.

Rolls-Royce has unveiled the Celestial Phantom with 446 diamonds placed into the door caps, center console, and the rear privacy divider. The vehicle was unveiled at the Dubai Motor Show.

There's no indication of exactly how many carats of diamonds are inside the vehicle or how much it costs. When you are talking about incredibly wealthy middle Easterners cost really isn't an issue. The vehicle also promises to use the finest leather on the inside and has huge amounts of luxurious features.
