Luxurious, exclusive, exquisite; take your pick of adjectives for the lovely Dawn and any one of them will suffice. Basically a Wraith coupe under the skin, the Dawn’s sheetmetal curves and swoops, making it—according to Rolls—the “sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built.” Inside there is room for four adult passengers; occupants will be dazzled by the gorgeous leather and acres of real wood trim. Under the hood is a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12 that makes 563 hp, so the Dawn is as fleet as it is sexy.
Inside you are struck by Dawn’s unmistakable silence. A welcoming, whisper-quiet sanctuary, heightened by the six-layer soft-top roof above. Seated, you and your passengers are cosseted by the world’s finest grade leather. Even the supple leather of the steering is uninterrupted, an almost invisible seam hand-stitched from within.
In just 20 seconds – the time it takes for Dawn’s roof to unfurl – you are instantly immersed in the sights, sounds and scents around you. Be it the soft sea breeze of the coast, the intoxicating buzz of the city by night, or the open road ahead.
This is the very definition of top-down driving. Built by those who understand what true exhilaration should feel like.
