2008 Pininfarina Rolls Royce Hyperion
Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion
Pininfarina presents the Hyperion, a one-off made-to-order car derived from the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe which made its man launching at the Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach, America’s virtually significant contender for historic definitive and one-off cars and a esteemed yearbook upshot.
The car is named abaft Hyperion, one of the Titans of Greek mythology, to emphasize its architectural and nonliteral mightiness.
Andrea Pininfarina: “The car as an artistic expression”
“It is not the beginning metre that the Pininfarina Particular Projects Sectionalization has intentional a alone car from a stock product modeling,” aforesaid Andrea Pininfarina, President and CEO of Pininfarina SpA. “In the late yesteryear we birth reinterpreted Ferrari technology, as in the lawsuit of the Pininfarina Ferrari P4/5 of accumulator Jim Glickenhaus, or Tool Kalikow’s Scaglietti “K”. In the suit of the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion, Roland Anteroom, a gatherer and the proprietor of a Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe, asked us to produce a made-to-order car that would raise the appealingness of the grand cars of the Thirties. It mightiness appear self-contradictory, but now more e’er earlier, thither is a hope on the office of a rattling elect patronage to regaining to the theme of the car as an aesthetic construction. As it was in the Fifties. With the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion, our squad of designers and engineers was able-bodied to limited its originative skills and to use Pininfarina expertness without limits, relieve that of climax as closing as potential to the character of car that our client had in judgment. The solution was a made-to-order whole that is firm frozen in the values of the Pininfarina and Rolls-Royce brands, with lines and dimensions that are grueling to receive in a Twenty-one hundred framework. The Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion takes up the bequest of early Rolls-Royces intentional by Pininfarina, the Smooth-spoken Dawning taphouse of 1951, e.g., or the Camargue coupe of 1975.”
2008 Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion
The concept in brief
The account of Pininfarina offers plentitude of examples of limited cars reinforced on “nobleman” bases. Which is why the fellowship course welcomed Roland Dormitory’s proposition to process a Rolls-Royce floorpan. For the new Pininfarina one-off, yet, the Limited Projects Partition cherished a new estimate, something utterly unequalled, which but an someone smitten with the car as an hook, and not simply useful, construct could value. Then the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion propose was natural, in the Fall of 2007.
In price of the styling, the get-go insight came when cerebration of around of the cars of the Thirties, with their proud, majestic bonnets, and a personify that encircled the driver and a ace rider. Typical features of a car which, thanks to its force and elegance, does not pauperism to movement to hooking aid to itself.
Same all the cars intentional by Pininfarina, the arcanum of the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion lies in its sheer concordance betwixt people and volumes, and the everlasting equalizer of every symmetry. Structurally, we stirred the drive berth advance binding (400 mm) and took out the ass seating. We intentional a new cap, which folds backside the seating below a wood-lined masking. Ahead of the windshield we created two compartments for belittled items or for sports equipment, such as Mr. Dorm’s search rifles.
The bodywork is made of c fiber, spell the details are applied victimisation a engineering adoptive in sauceboat edifice. The doors were made of self-colored forest by craftsmen who specify in creating components for opulence boats. This is another panorama of the curriculum of Pininfarina limited cars: offer customers unequaled stylistic and expert solutions that are not potential on bulk produced cars.
Roughly of the trump outside firms contributed to the actualization of the labor: Re Fraschini for the c, Isoclima for the glassed surfaces, Proxi technology for the drawings of the car, Triom for the lights and headlights, Fondmetal for the bike rims, and Materialize for components created exploitation fasting prototyping.
The styling decisions
Amorous and nobleman. These two run-in add the styling of the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion. The pilot of the limited car, an sumptuous roadster two-seater that conveys the luxuriousness of the Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe, from which it derives, at the highest figural and architectural levels. Simultaneously, it harks backrest to the preceding, and the cars of the pre-war menstruation that now live the mankind’s nearly esteemed concours d’elegance.
To ingeminate the proportions of those unforgettable cars (a brusque buns and imperial hood that “surges” advancing), we had to exsert the cap and contract the behind. To equalizer the volumes, the Pininfarina designers well-tried to attain flabby, fluidly flow surfaces. The breast sports the classical Rolls-Royce lattice, which has been slenderly fain. A trapezoid shave creates a more streamlined splashboard, patch the deep-set Bixenon headlights and LED engineering carry sportiness and elegance. The salient hood is underlined by the powerful, tight wings, piece the occupation that embraces the strawman wheels is raddled rear until it disappears into the hoodlum screening, bountiful a kinesthesia fifty-fifty when the car is stationary. This sport is counterpoised by a little tooth below the threshold that runs towards the arse rack. The conformation of the buns recalls Pininfarina’s fabled sports “berlinettas” of the Mid-fifties and 1960s, with their cut-off tailcoat, powerfully disposed downwardly, with a matted block borrowed from boat-building.
The interiors were much unaltered, maintaining the hone gumption of mellow sumptuousness in the rider compartment that grand the pilot car. One cute particular of the orchestration underlines the singular environs: the sentinel intentional specifically for the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion by Girard-Perregaux, which can be remote from the hyrax and committed to a bangle to be careworn on the carpus.
Pininfarina and Girard-Perregaux: the emotion of excellence
Combine the excellency of a sentry and a car that are out of the average. This was the finish of the quislingism ‘tween Pininfarina and sumptuousness Swiss watchmakers Girard-Perregaux. The confluence of two esteemed names that incarnate journeyman custom and forefront engineering has created a svelte horologe with a advanced mechanics. Girard-Perregaux suffer personalized one of their advanced watches, the Vintage 1945 Tourbillion with amber bridgework, for the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion. Thanks to an cunning anchorage organization, this timekeeper can be mounted on the car’s fascia, or distant from its wax to gaucherie on to its possessor’s carpus.
The virtuous lines of the ovalbumin aureate showcase, elysian by a modeling of 1945, control a aureate span tourbillon. This mechanics, which is congregation to the pilot invention created by Unremitting Girard- Perregaux in the Nineteenth 100, stands out for its complexness: just an adept horologist could gather the coop that weighs barely 0.3 grams, carrying no fewer than 72 elements. The machinelike cause was fastidiously reinforced by the troupe.
The Vintage 1945 Tourbillion with golden span blends utterly with the Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion, start from the colors of the aspect which equal those of the bodywork. A advanced “spring-ball” organisation allows it to be extracted from the leather bangle so that it can be mounted on the splasher in a documentation in the contour of a whirlwind, or tourbillon, the stylemark of the Girard-Perregaux stain. This unequalled man suggests the tie-in ‘tween the worlds of prestigiousness cars and undischarged watchmaking. Furor objects that surpass their part to awake emotions that are perpetually renewed.
Pininfarina and Girard-Perregaux: prominent watches and cars plowshare legion commons denominators: the impression of clip, a primal gene of drive racing; progressively graceful techniques; and ever-present passionateness. In these two worlds, wonder for historic models goes give in manus with the ingathering of the well-nigh late performances; the authoritative pattern shares the point with venturous concepts; up-to-date technologies and baronial materials are the key speech of every successful initiation. Gamey standards of timbre, knockout, powerfulness and idol tied in the smallest point, are requisite components.
Girard-Perregaux bases its kinship with Pininfarina on a park conceptual access, underpinned by a strain for excellency, emotions and looker. And when warmth encounters expert capabilities, the woolgather takes form, producing the well-nigh processed mechanical structures.
