Here's what happens when Rolls-Royce asks Italy for help making A Phantom.
The 2008 model year was an interesting one for the Phantom. In terms offundamental design language, the British Automaker Rolls-Royce has pretty muchboiled down the Phantom to a winning formula. It’s interesting to consider,then, why Rolls-Royce chose to employ the help of Italian design firmPininfarina to help them construct a new car. The mantra of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” might apply here,especially when we consider the fact that car keeps popping up for sale.
This timearound, the one-off “Pininfarina Hyperion Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe” is beingoffered up for sale at Al-Ain Class Motors in Dubai. The last timethis dealership had this unique luxury car in its collection, it was beingoffered up for sale at 2.93 million euros. The new price, three yearsafterward, might say something about the desirability of this automotivecreation. The current price has been drastically reduced to 1.45 million euros,which amounts to more than $1.6 million USD. The designerbehind this car, Jason Castriota, was also the same individual responsible forthe stunning Ferrari P4/5.
