What are my options? I realy like the Roval Rapids, but they are most rare thing on earth it seems?

I really want to be the front of the handlebar (where the stem is) to be in one line like the Rapide and not so wavy.

I don't think there's tons of options that are 'not so wavy', unless you were open to an integrated barstem. Maybe the Deda Vinci, 40cm outside to outside, would fit the bill.

3T, Pro, Bontrager, Enve and Deda all have narrow aero bars.

Deda Superzero RS (40cm is 38 c-c) is really nice. Like the Rapide but a bit more comfortable to hold on the tops.
Zipp SL70 Aero is also available in 38cm.

EC70 from Easton and the Pro Vibe Alloy are both offered in 38 cm and have flare so that the drops are wider if that's your thing

E: EC70 not offered in 38

So i have orderd the Vision Metron Aero. Today it arrive. But the front part of the handlebar, facing into the wind, is almost flat and more that 2 cm high. How is this supposed to be aero? Should it not be more rounded like the bottom of a waterdrop?

I recently purchased these. Yet to try them. Suitable for integrated cabling as they got the hole at the back.

Only get the Primavera if you run eTap or Di2. The drillings are really badly designed and you cant fit both the shift and brake housing through the bars. Aside from this fundamental design flaw which 100% warrants not buying them if you run mech groupsets, they are fine.

I wonder if the Primavera design has changed. My other half runs a pair of 38's with mechanical Ultegra and absolutely no problem with shift and brake cable routing. They are a few years old tho.
