In 2008, Rolls-Royce collector Roland Hall from Britain, custom ordered the Hyperion from Pininfarina which went up for sale a year later at a price for immortals: $4.5 million. The car is based on the Drophead Coupe model and is powered by the same 6.75-liter V12 engine.
The special Rolls takes its name after Hyperion, one of the Titans of Greek mythology and it was designed by Jason Castriota of former Saab and built by the Special Projects division of Pininfarina. Inside further changes differentiate the Hyperion from the Drophead. The rear seats were removed and the driving position was pushed back 400mm back. The body of the car is made out of carbon fiber, the only exception are the wood-made doors.
Fast forward three years later and the Rolls Royce Hyperion is listed for sale at the Abu Dhabi dealership. The price is unknown at the moment, but we don’t expect to see it much longer in the showroom.
