The last of the Rolls Royce Phantom VIIs rolled off the assembly line in January, but before it goes, we thought you'd enjoy seeing what you missed out on all these years by not being insanely rich.

Turns out, you missed out on a really trippy ride.

Here's the interior of a 2016 Phantom, complete with custom-designed fibre-optic lights that make it feel like you're travelling through the stars.

Each car's light pattern is unique and arranged by hand.

"The Starlight Headliner’s unique effect is achieved by fitting delicate fibre optic strands at varying depths and at different angles – to cause light to escape in multiple directions and at different intensities," Rolls-Royce says.

"The brightness of each ‘star’ can be adjusted to suit your mood: bright enough to relax and read under, or dim enough to create a subtle and relaxing glow."

Each starry night has between 800 and 1,600 stars, and takes two Rolls Royce craftspeople nine to 17 hours to complete, the company says.

Given the car's US$400,000-plus sticker price, that sort of attention to detail isn't really too much to ask, is it?

Apparently Rolls owners have been driving around with this feature for a while now. Who knew? The super-rich sure can keep a secret.
