The enchanting Rolls Royce Dawn is the topless sister to the Wraith and will soon mesmerize the entire Indian peninsula.
The new Rolls Royce Dawn stands for the beginning of a new era for the British luxury marquee. The Dawn, unlike its darker siblings (Wraith, Ghost and Phantom) is christened with a more radiant name. It represents a more forward thinking Rolls, with the same attention to detail (that we all love so much).
Based on the fastest Rolls Royce on the market, the Dawn looks a lot like its sibling – the Wraith. Rolls Royce however claims that almost 80% of the bodywork on the Dawn is bespoke and brand new. They also claim that the new cabriolet is just as quiet as its hardtop sibling. Quiet enough to hear the bespoke clock tick as you cruise along. Big feat for a car protected with a cloth roof. Rolls Royce is so obsessed with tranquillity, that even the electronically folding roof mechanism maintains absolute silence.
The Dawn at its heart is powered by a 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V12 motor, that also inhabits the Wraith. However, in the Dawn, the V12 has been sobered down to produce 563 HP and 780 Nm; as compared to 624 HP in the Wraith. Athough, being a 2.5 ton luxury-yacht-on-wheels, it still does the sprint to 100 kmph in an unbelievable 4.9 seconds!
The interior is a paradise of leather, suede and precious woods. Rolls Royce offers its customers the chance to customize their cars the way they please. Materials, colours of your choice. The combinations are simply endless. At the centre of the car is the Dawn clock that strikes with absolute precision. The steering wheel is a classic Rolls Royce three spoke steering wheel that evokes a very contemporary vibe. The interior is absolutely decadent and lives up to the Rolls Royce marquee. Best of all, this 2-door cabriolet comfortably seats 4 passengers in a lap of luxury.
The Rolls Royce Dawn is a beautiful sight to behold. The surfaces of this car are ridiculously perfect, displaying that obsessive attention to detail the British marquee is famous for. The Dawn doesn’t just transport you; It curates a surreal experience that is hard to describe in words alone. Priced at whopping Rs. 6.25 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai), the Dawn is one of the most expensive cabriolets in the country and it truly lives up to its mascot – the Spirit of Ecstasy.
