The Hyperion was created by the most expert Pininfarina designer and built by master craftsmen. To reproduce the proportions of vintage cars, the style and line of the body had to be completely revised. The hood was re-designed and built so that it folds under a wood-veneer cover, the driving position was moved back and the rear seats have been eliminated.
Fluid, harmonious surfaces were designed to balance the volumes. The front recalls the classic Rolls-Royce grille, but it is mounted at an angle. The upper trapezoid part links up aerodynamically to the bonnet and windscreen, while the inset headlights and LED technology emphasise the car’s spirit, elegance and technological value.
The shape of the tail is pure Pininfarina and recalls the legendary sports “berlinettas” of the Fifties and Sixties with their short tails; it slopes strongly downwards with a flat bottom, a solution borrowed from boat design.
The interiors maintain an atmosphere of luxury and glamour that culminates in an element of outstanding originality: the clock, which was created by Girard-Perregaux specifically for the Hyperion, can be removed from the facia and worn as a watch, attaching it to a special strap.
The bodywork is built entirely of carbon fibre, guaranteeing precise geometries, outstanding rigidity and unexpected lightness, while the details of the exterior and interior wood finish hark back to luxury boats in the choice of materials and the tradition of the execution.
