Rolls Royce has showcased a new convertible at the on-going Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany.
Christened as the Dawn, the latest Rolls Royce offers four full seats, instead of the compromised 2+2 seating arrangement seen in some other convertibles.
“At Rolls-Royce, we pride ourselves as creators of fine motor cars that also serve as social spaces,” comments Gilles Taylor, head of design at Rolls Royce. “The idea of creating a car like Dawn that can be used in comfort by only two adults on a day to day basis is anathema. In creating Dawn we have accepted no compromise to the comfort and luxury of four adults who want to travel together in the pinnacle of style.”Under the hood, the Rolls Royce Dawn houses the same 6.6-litre V12 powertrain found in the Ghost. Mated to a 8-speed satellite aided transmission, the engine churns out 563 bhp and 780 Nm of torque.
80% of the exterior body panels are new to the Dawn. Among the changes, the grille is recessed by 45mm while the lower front bumper has been extended by 53mm compared to the Wrath. The wood for the deck can be chosen by the customers according to their tastes.
Inside the cabin, the Dawn features a four-zone automatic climate control, bespoke premium audio system with sixteen individually-tuned speakers, and chrome decorative inserts.
