|The Hyperion Rattler is hot. Hot car. Hot spray-job. They've even managed to squeeze even more power out of the boost system too.|
The Montgomery Hyperion Rattler is the upgraded version of the Hyperion. It trades one speed point for one boost point. It remains the average car that it was except with a slightly lower cruising speed and slightly stronger boost. The higher boost rating makes the Hyperion Rattler worse than the original since its handling under boost was already a problem. The lower cruising speed makes its original faster. This also has the wheels of a Carson Inferno Van.
To sum it up, this is a car for expert burners but can be put to good use in races in its class and can still brawl with some of the lighter vehicles. The player can get away faster from heavier vehicles when using ambushes and hit-and-runs which makes these two tactics even more viable.

The Hyperion Rattler may resemble the classic and iconic Jaguar E-type to some with a bit of Porsche mixed in. From the side and oblique it most greatly resembles the TVR Cerbera which ties well with the other Montgomery vehicles.
- In Burnout Paradise's Free February Update the Montgomery Hyperion Rattler's speed stat was lowered from 4 to 3.
- The hood of the Hyperion Rattler can fly open whilst airborne after a jump. This is because most jumps slightly "damage" vehicles and the hood on this vehicle will open with very minimal damage. This also works with the original Hyperion as well.
- This car has a striking resemblance to the Modified Muscle and the Dominator Muscle from Burnout 3: Takedown. This car's brother has the same effect as well.
