Pininfarina Hyperion based on the Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe
As you know when we talk about the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance everything is exclusive. Exclusive is also the new Pininfarina Hyperion, based on the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. This is a special vehicle commissioned by a individual who has not yet been named. The new vehicle features no back seats and a new design for the interior: the front seats were pulled back almost sixteen inches due to the new sloping windshield.
As you expected everything in this car is at is done to a higher level of refinement, even the clock: premium watchmaker Girard Perregaux manufactured a special tourbillon timepiece which can be removed from its writs-strap and mounted into the dashboard. Also a gun rack was fitted in the front of the cabin.
This is the first car unveiled since the untimely death last week of Andrea Pininfarina, CEO and grandson of the company’s founder. His designs are revered throughout the industry, and while this Rolls Royce insures his legacy, it is unfortunate that it will be one of the last to his credit.
