Rolls Royce will launch their new car, Dawn today. We have been invited to join the company for its first ever global online launch. We hope that the car manages to stand true to the aesthetics that were deduced from the spy-shots and the teaser images of the car that were making their rounds online. The car will be available in a soft-top version and this can be attributed to Rolls's fondness of the romanticism between the soft-top roof and the rain drops falling on it. The Rolls Royce Dawn is an open-top version of the Rolls-Royce Wraith coupé and will go on sale in the first quarter of 2016 following its debut today.
The name ‘Dawn’ dates back to the 1949, when it was first used by RR and remained in use for its cars until 1954, which also included the Rolls Royce Silver Dawn. The car shares its wheelbase with the Wraith and comes in the same two-door layout. The Ghost styling can be clearly seen in the front-end design and the gently sloping rear deck.
The car features the same 624bhp, twin-turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 engine, which it shares with the Rolls Royce Wraith. Mechanically, one can argue that the Rolls Royce Dawn is identical to Wraith with slight updates, which it happens to be based on. The big Goliath V12 engine, is mated to an automatic transmission.
Engine: 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V12
