Rolls-Royce already sells a coupe version of its Ghost luxury sedan in the form of the Wraith. Now though, the British automaker has taken the covers off its convertible equivalent model at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show. Meet the all-new Dawn – a two-door, convertible version based on the Ghost sedan.
On the outside, this new offering maintains the timeless Rolls-Royce design cues such as the long bonnet, short front overhang, a long rear overhang and a high shoulder line.
To give the Dawn a distinct identity, Rolls-Royce has recessed the front grille by 45mm and extended the front bumper design by 53mm. Other highlights include the elegant soft top and 21-inch wheels.
Inside, most of the interior bits are shared with the Wraith and in here, the ultimate attention to detail and exquisite design cues are evident everywhere.
The Dawn uses the familiar twin-turbo 6.6-litre V12 powertrain. This massive engine produces 563bhp of power at 5,250rpm and 780Nm of torque at 1,500rpm.
When launched, the new Dawn will join the existing Rolls-Royce range consisting of the Phantom, the Ghost and the Wraith.
