Pininfarina Hyperion: Andrea's Last Hurrah Coming To Pebble Beach

Image for article titled Pininfarina Hyperion: Andrea's Last Hurrah Coming To Pebble Beach

Based on the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (plus a pile of collector money), the Pininfarina Hyperion represents the last coachbuilt automobile completed under the watchful eye of Andrea Pininfarina. Set to debut at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance, the Hyperion will have to share the spotlight with the pop-top Veyron but we suspect it'll garner more attention considering the recent untimely death of Mr. Pininfarina. If we're honest about it, they may have whiffed the design a bit based on this first image, but it's probably pretty spectacular in person. [Carscoop]

If based on, and hence around the same size as the Phantom DHC, this thing is likely huge. I'd guess those are what; 20", 22" rims? The miata-esque top and passenger cabin look ill proportioned in this illustration, and the suicide doors appear difficult to transverse with the top up. I can't tell, does it look like the bonnet is brushed steel?
