Pininfarina Hyperion news - Hyper’ activity - 2008

Read more on:

When you finally pop your clogs -
doubtless in a spectacular moment of snap oversteer into some sort of fiery
molten lava lake - how do you want to be remembered?

How about with a special-edition Rolls
cabrio? This is the Pininfarina Hyperion, a one-off concept created by the
Italian design house and dedicated to the memory of Andrea Pininfarina.

We can’t quite decide whether it’s a
fitting tribute or not.

That massive, long hood is definitely
retro-cool - the Rolls’ windscreen has been moved back a full 40cm to create
the E-Type proportions - but the headlights and, particularly, the grille just
look a bit awkward. And let’s face it, the grille’s fairly important on a
 Rolls.

Nonetheless, there’s no question it’d get
you noticed.

And if you’d
ever wondered what Lady Penelope’s FAB 1 would look like in cabrio form (and,
admittedly, with two fewer wheels and a fetching blue paint job), here’s your
 answer.
