Despite what you may have heard, Rolls-Royce Hyperion one-off not for sale

For the second year in a row, the coachbuilt Pininfarina-bodied Rolls-Royce Hyperion has been offered for sale – except, for the second year in a row, it's not really for sale. Last year the convertible, built for an Englishman who owns the tooling and rights to build another one, was put on James List for €4.5 million. It was soon discovered that a third party was slyly listing the a set of body panels to make your Drophead Coupe look like the Hyperion, not the actual car.
This week the Hyperion was listed again, this time at Pistonheads, only the price had gone up to €7 million. The man who commissioned the car again piped up to say there's no truth to it this time, and that "the figure mentioned was ridiculous." So take this as a PSA if you're on the lookout for a $9.1 million car: this one's a scam.
