Custom Pininfarina Hyperion for sale
This Custom Rolls-Royce Hyperion for $6 million was found listed for sale at the Prestige Car dealership in Abu Dhabi, for an undisclosed price.
This convertible-model was designed by Jason Castriota,an Italian American automobile designer, and was built by Pininfarina's Special Projects division. Hyperion was originally based on the powerful running gear of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe with 453 hp power coming from the 6.75 liter V12 engine.
The design changes that were done to this car includes the removal of rear seats, the driving position pushed back by 400mm, and shortened the rear-end a little and extended the roof. Further, Pininfarina also designed an exclusive new fold, which automatically folds behind the seats, under a wood-lined cover. The whole body of the Hyperion was made of carbon fiber; expect the doors that were meticulously crafted out of high-quality solid wood.
