As we know, the Rolls-Royce Dawn will be a convertible version of the potent Rolls-Royce Wraith. However, it will be slightly more than that. Every body panel of the Dawn will be brand new to ensure that it is worthy of the ‘Dawn’ name and being offered for sale alongside the Rolls-Royce Phantom, Ghost and Wraith.
Obviously the main point of difference between the Dawn and the Wraith will be the former’s convertible roof. It will be a folding fabric top rather than an aluminium one. When the Dawn hits the market, it will serve as the perfect rival to the Bentley Continental GT Convertible as well as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet.
Power for the car should be provided by the same twin-turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 delivering 624 hp as the hardtop.
When recently discussing the car, chief executive officer of Rolls-Royce, Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes said “Our new Rolls-Royce Dawn promises a striking, seductive encounter like no other Rolls-Royce to date. Dawn is a beautiful new open-top motor car with a name that suggests the fresh opportunities that every new day holds – an awakening, an opening up of one’s senses and a burst of sunshine. It will be the most social of super-luxury motor cars for those beautiful people who wish to bathe in the sunlight of the world’s social hotspots.”
