One-off Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe

Italian styling house Pininfarina has created a one-off Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe for a wealthy customer.

Named Hyperion the bespoke creation is based on Rolls-Royce's Drophead Coupe.

The one-off machine is due to be officially unveiled at this weekend's Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, California.

Pininifarina's one-off Rolls-Royce is one of number of recent bespoke creations the Italian firm has created for super-wealthy clients who crave individuality.

These leaked images of the Hyperion show a more flowing shape than that of the Drophead Coupe it's based on, Pininfarina describing it as a homage to the great pre-war cars.

To achieve that more flowing look the windscreen and driving position have been moved further back in the car's wheelbase.

The interior is said to feature a clock that can be removed and worn as a wristwatch, other odd features including a storage compartment to hold hunting rifles.

The unveiling of the Hyperion is of special significance this weekend, as it's the first car Pininfarina has revealed since CEO Andrea Pininfarina was tragically killed in a traffic accident earlier this month.

Joining the world's finest collectable cars at the famous Pebble Beach event the Hyperion won't be the only mega-money open-topped unveil in California, Bugatti also showing it's open Veyron Grand Sport 16.4.
