The Rolls-Royce Dawn

This elegant convertible is the latest car from the luxury British brand and it retains all the breath-taking aesthetics of a Rolls-Royce while appearing beautifully contemporary too. The interior of the car is something to behold with swathes of soft leather, four individual seats, wooden details and all the latest technology contained within.

Comfort, style and power all come together in the Dawn, which is powered by a 6.6l V12 twin-turbo engine, giving you an open-top driving experience unlike anything else. The response from the car, the wind in your hair and driver assistance technology at your fingertips makes the Dawn truly spectacular.

The new Dawn is based on the Wraith but Rolls-Royce looked to the 1952 Silver Dawn Drophead for design inspiration.

The V12 produces 563bhp and drives the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which links up with the sat-nav to automatically pre-select the next appropriate gear. The Dawn propels itself from 0-62mph in 4.9sec and reach a top speed of 155mph.

This Rolls-Royce is a car to be driven and enjoyed. Find out more here.
