Rolls Royce Dawn
Inside you are struck by Rolls Royce Dawn unmistakable silence. A welcoming, whisper-quiet sanctuary, heightened by the six-layer soft-top roof above. Seated, you and your passengers are cosseted by the world’s finest grade leather. Even the supple leather of the steering is uninterrupted, an almost invisible seam hand-stitched from within.
In just 20 seconds – the time it takes for Dawn’s roof to unfurl – you are instantly immersed in the sights, sounds and scents around you. Be it the soft sea breeze of the coast, the intoxicating buzz of the city by night, or the open road ahead.
This is the very definition of top-down driving. Built by those who understand what true exhilaration should feel like.
Dawn Drophead Coupé is a true four-seat drophead, perfectly designed for spontaneous moments with those who share your desire for the beauty beyond. With four immersive seats, each of peerless comfort and style, this is an exceptional space perfectly tailored for unforgettable shared experiences.
The ultimate expression of freedom and style, Bespoke is your chance to shape Dawn in your vision. With an almost endless palette of 44,000 exterior and interior colours, many customers have had their name immortalised in a Rolls-Royce colour, such as Fux Blue, a hue commissioned specifically for a long-standing Rolls-Royce Patron.
It’s more than just a Wraith soft-top too. 80 per cent of the body panels are unique and even the tyres are bespoke. It’s not for shrinking violets and is a jaw-dropping thing to behold in the flesh: needless to say, the quarter-million pound price tag is just the starting point.
Under the hood sits a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12. It pumps out 563 horsepower, making the Dawn as fleet as it is sexy. At the test track, the Dawn rushed to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. It moves gracefully and deliberately, and it cossets passengers even when driving over the harshest potholes. The eight-speed automatic transmission is tuned for tranquility. It uses GPS to determine when it should change gears, considering whether the car is going uphill, downhill, or around corners. That said, if you want a sharper, more athletic grand-touring convertible, perhaps look at the Bentley Continental GT, which is both faster than the Dawn and sportier to drive.
