Rolls-Royce, the ultra-luxury British marquee, would launch the Dawn convertible on June 24, 2016 in India. The Rolls-Royce Dawn is the open-top avatar of the Wraith coupe. It had its first public appearance at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is the company's second convertible luxury car after the Phantom Drophead coupe. Identical to every Rolls-Royce, it would be sold as CBU in India, while attracting a sticker price of around Rs. 5.5 Crores (Ex. Showroom, Delhi).
Despite being repeatedly dubbed as the convertible version of Wraith by the auto aficionado, Rolls-Royce has stated that the Dawn only shares 20 percent of the elements of the coupe. The only similarities between the two are doors and grille surround. The convertible roof of Rolls-Royce Dawn can be opened and closed in just 22 seconds upto the speeds of 50kmph. The company designers have made use of French seam stitching in the entire roof lining to ensure a silent cabin. The Goodwood-based uber-luxury automaker claims that the 2-door convertible has one of the quietest interior cabins among its portfolio.
As for features, it gets, projector headlamps with daytime running lights (DRLs), Satellite Aided Transmission with GPS and BMW's iDrive system with 16 speaker bespoke audio system as standard. Under the bonnet, Rolls-Royce Dawn has a 6.6L V12 twin-turbo petrol engine which generates a maximum power output of 563bhp and 780Nm of peak torque performance. It would be linked to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission which would transmit the power to the rear wheels. For those asking, Rolls-Royce Dawn can comfortably accommodate four individuals.
