Pininfarina Hyperion one-off to debut at Pebble Beach

Days before this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, one of the most highly anticipated concept cars scheduled to make its debut has surfaced early. Based on the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, the Pininfarina Hyperion has been commissioned by one quite wealthy customer. The concept does away with the rear seats and moves the fronts, along with the swept windscreen, back 400 mm. Also in true gangsta fashion, a gun rack has been fitted in front of the cabin (real talk), while famed watchmaker Girard Perregaux has crafted a special timepiece that can be removed from its wrist-strap and mounted in the dashboard. Look for more details in the next few days.<p>
