Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Pininfarina
Built in 2008, the opulent convertible has been transformed into a two-seater and received completely new recessed bi-xenon headlights with LED tech flanking the imposing Rolls-Royce grille, which was slightly inclined. Looking at the side
profile reveals the entirely different bodywork and a short tail evoking Pininfarina's work during the 1950s and 1960s. All of the panels are made from carbon fiber and there's also a new fabric soft top that folds behind the rear seats under a wood-lined cover.
A similar wood-lined cover can be noticed in front of the windscreen where the hood starts. It's more than just a design feature as underneath it are two storage compartments for carrying various small items. Solid wood was used for both front and rear covers and the theme continued inside the largely unchanged cabin featuring an abundance of wood. As a final touch, a watch created by Swiss marque Girard-Perregaux specifically for the Hyperion was mounted on the dashboard.
The Hyperion's body features more rounded fenders than its original donor car, and a longer trunk. Lastly, the Hyperion's rear bumper wraps underneath the vehicle and two large rectangular exhaust tips come from two holes in the bumper.
From the side, the entire Pininfarina looks much more stylish and aerodynamic than its donor Phantom. It also features a raised beltline that spans from about the halfway point on the front fender to just behind the door.
The Pininfarina Hyperion's drivetrain is a carryover from the Phantom.
This is certainly no downside though, as the Phantom features a rather impressive drivetrain. It features a 6.7-liter V-12 engine that cranks 453 horsepower at 5,350 rpm and 531 pound-feet of torque at 3,500 rpm. This beast links up to a six-speed automatic transmission that slings power to the rear wheels.
This combination propels the HYPERION to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds.
