History of Rolls Royce Hyperion Goes On…


Once upon a time there was produced a unique offspring of the Rolls Royce family that amazed with its appearance. Its father was a great automotive designer Jason Castriota who proudly called his child Hyperion – the high-one – marking the car’s exclusiveness and grandeur.

However no one seems in a hurry for buying the Hyperion, as it hasn’t had an opportunity to run for over a year.

Can we recognize the Hyperion as one of the Rolls Royce range? Hardly. It seems that the car’s bright individuality does a disservice to its success.
