Rolls-Royce Hyperion For Sale

In 2007, British luxury car collector Roland Hall commissioned Pininfarina S.p.A, the revered Italian car design firm and coachbuilder, to recreate his Phantom Drophead Coupe to evoke the appeal of the sumptuous automobiles of the 1930s.  
 
Pininfarina was not new to building custom one-off cars based on standard production models, as in the case of Jim Glickenhaus’ Ferrari P4/5 (and don't get us started on how cool Jim is - just check out his race operation here!), based on the Enzo, and Peter Kalikow’s Scaglietti ‘Kappa’, based on the Ferrari 612.
 
The car is intended to be an artistic expression. A car which, thanks to its strength, elegance and regality, does not need move to draw attention to itself. Curiously enough, it's mileage is listed at 0, so it may not move much after all! The bodywork is made of carbon fibre and the doors of solid wood, produced by craftsmen who specialise in luxury boats.
 
The majestic, long bonnet is matched with  a shortened tail end to repeat the proportions of pre-war period cars that now fill the most prestigious concours d’elegance.
 
Named after one of the Titans of Greek Mythology, the Hyperion was first sold in 2009, just one year after its creation, for the tidy sum of ~$7.5M AUD. In 2012, the car was listed for sale at a price of ~$4.3M AUD but it appears as if it never found a new owner, instead touring the world as a promotional car for the Italian design firm.
 
Now, its again up for sale by Al Ain Class Motors in Dubai at the bargain price of ~$2.1M AUD.
 
Engine: 6.75-litre V12
Horsepower: 435 hp
0–100: 5.7 seconds
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Torque: 531 lb-ft
