2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn debuts at the Frankfurt International Motor Show

2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn debuts at the Frankfurt International Motor Show

Rolls-Royce has showcased the 2016 Dawn at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. This marks the world premiere of the drophead convertible, which was unveiled online, globally, a few days ago.

The name Dawn comes from Rolls-Royce's car Silver Dawn that dates back to 1949. This car was one amongst the first Rolls-Royce cars to be offered with a factory-built body. Only 28 of them were dropheads that were built between 1950 and 1954. The 2016 Dawn carries forward that legacy as 80 per cent of the car's body panels are unique. The automaker is calling it as the 'sexiest' car built by them till date.

The Dawn borrows traits from the Wraith coupe and is smaller than the Ghost. Despite being a two-door car, it is a proper four-seater and comes in a mandarin orange interior. The highlight of the car is the fabric roof that closes in 22 seconds making it an open-top car. The open-pore wood deck in the rear is offered as standard and ends in a console between the rear seats, whose design the automaker has described to be like a cascading waterfall. Furthermore, the car's interior can be personalised according to the buyer.

Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Our new Rolls-Royce Dawn promises a striking, seductive encounter like no other Rolls-Royce to date, and begins a new age of open-top, super-luxury motoring. Dawn is a beautiful new motor car that offers the most uncompromised open-top motoring experience in the world. It will be the most social of super-luxury drophead motor cars for those who wish to bathe in the sunlight of the world’s most exclusive social hotspots. Quite simply, it is the sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built.”

The Dawn is a beautifully packaged car and is powered by a twin turbo 6.6-litre V12 engine that produces 563bhp of power. It is the second convertible from the carmaker that has been specially designed for the people who love open-top-driving. It is a part of the line-up of the ultra-luxurious rides from Rolls-Royce and will go on sale early next year as a 2016 model.
