Rolls-Royce has just debuted their new luxury vehicle the two seat convertible Phantom coupe Pininfarina “Hyperion”, named after a Titan in Greek Mythology. The new state of the art design by Pininfarina, meshes the 1930’s old with the 2000’s new by bringing back some of the past influences and intertwining them with recent innovations. The Hyperion has a convertible wide-screen and a cockpit. And the most interesting part about the Hyperion is that it has a gun rack for holding guns or rifles. My question is have previous Rolls-Royce owners been complaining about the lack of gun holders in their cars? I mean what kind of drive by shootings are these people doing that they need a gun rack, but I guess maybe it’s for hunting-but who hunts with a Rolls-Royce. The Hyperion will also come equipped with a luxury limited edition timepiece from the watch designer Girard-Perregaux.  The piece can be removed from its designated cradle on the dashboard and placed on a specially crafted bracelet that can be worn on the wrist. The Hyperion goes 0-60 in 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 155mph-that’s interestingly slower than expected but its beauty makes up for it. Price tag: $412,000
