Rolls-Royce Dawn Launch Event (15)

The latest installment of luxury mobility has arrived into India from the stables of Rolls-Royce – the Dawn. The name was first used by Rolls-Royce in 1949, but only ever applied to 28 very special drop-head bodies between 1950 and 1954. The ultra-luxury, 4-seater convertible, or “drophead” in Rolls-Royce speak, was first unveiled via a digital online launch in September 2015 followed by a showcase at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show.

Inside the cabin is a sea of appointments, hand-crafted and trimmed in the finest leather and wood mankind has ever seen; of course, everything can be individualized to the slightest detail. The Dawn features BMW iDrive system, including a touch-pad and a 10.25″ high-definition screen, apart from a heads-up display, dynamic cruise control, and a Bespoke Audio system with sixteen individually-tuned speakers.

Based on the Ghost and Wraith, Rolls-Royce says that the Dawn is “the sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built”, and we couldn’t agree more. The new Rolls-Royce Dawn stands apart from its stable mates, featuring 80% unique body panels. The Dawn’s soft top roof, which is claimed to deliver the silence of a Wraith when up, operates in just over 20 seconds at a cruising speed of up to 50km/h.
