It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life and you will surely feel good if you would be the lucky owner of a Rolls-Royce Dawn. The British luxury car maker has just unveiled the new Dawn, a car which aims to be the “world’s only true modern four-seater super-luxury drophead”.
Scheduled to be showcased at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show which takes place in just two weeks, the Rolls Royce Dawn features a familiar design, but its body is almost entirely brand new, with a long bonnet, a high shoulder line, short front overhand and a long rear overhang.
Up front, the massive radiator grille is slightly smaller when compared to the Wraith, while the front bumper is a bit more extended that the one from its big brother. On the other hand, the rear end of the car is equally impressive, echoing the elegant design of early drophead coupes from Rolls-Royce.
The Rolls-Royce Dawn will come with a chic soft top, that could be retracted almost in complete silence in around 20 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h or 31 mph. Apparently the engineers from Rolls-Royce wanted to create the quietest convertible car in the world today, that’s why they’ve used a perfectly smooth surface for the soft top, which was combined with French Seam to get no noticeable wind noise with the roof up.
The cabin of this beautiful convertible features plenty of wooden and leather details, with all the luxury goodies one would expect from a Rolls-Royce. The seats are elegant and energetic and the car features a four-zone automatic climate control, sporty chrome inserts, a bespoke premium audio system with sixteen speakers, a new multimedia interface and even a special Satellite Aided transmission system.
But the Rolls-Royce Dawn is more than just an elegant-looking convertible. It’s also extremely fast, thanks to the 6.6L biturbo V12 engine under the hood, which generates 563 hp and 780 Nm of torque, that could take this ride from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds and to a top speed that’s electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).
