DAWN

THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DAWN

 

Night lifts to reveal a bold new silhouette; a Rolls-Royce like no other, yet steeped in prestigious heritage. Inspired by the iconic Silver Dawn of the 1950s, Dawn provides the perfect blend of sophistication and true freedom. Infused with a youthful spirit and vivacious energy, this inspiring motor car harnesses an exacting balance of power and possibility and heralds a brand new beginning.

 

The strikingly elegant design of Dawn can transform to perfectly complement its environment. A single touch reveals expansive vistas and a world of infinite opportunities. Awaken your senses. Seize every valuable moment shared with friends. Dawn lives in the moment. The moment is now.

 

FREEDOM WITH FINESSE

 

Alluring and assertive in equal measure, Dawn’s captivating charisma is felt from the very first encounter. The exterior exudes understated class, with a flawless, hand-polished finish giving it a marble-smooth sheen. Sleek yet edgy contours add to Dawn’s bold look, complete with a tapered ‘wake channel’ on the bonnet, reminiscent of a jet’s vapour trail.

 

Beneath the hood lies a 6.6 litre V12 twin-turbo engine, offering seemingly infinite reserves of power and exhilarating torque. With such a purposeful presence, Dawn dares you to discover the unexpected with the promise of a truly effortless drive.

 

EFFORTLESS EXHILARATION

 

Strong, yet seductive. Striking, yet sensuous. Whether the roof is up, down or in motion, Dawn perfectly captures the timeless Rolls-Royce design principles. This is a motor car that is destined to become an icon.

 

The imposing front grille, sweeping shoulder line and slender roof evoke a vision of dynamism. While sleek side windows create a private, intimate atmosphere – hinting at the welcoming sanctuary within. On the open road or the driveway, Dawn simmers with power and purpose.

 

OPEN UP TO NEW POSSIBILITIES

 

Experience the exhilaration of the open road. With one touch, Dawn’s roof folds silently away – leaving you open to the elements for the most exhilarating drive. As the hood glides back, it reveals a striking deck, finished with handcrafted wood veneer that waterfalls forward to meet the driver. This adds to the energised, seductive feel while fusing effortlessly with Dawn’s contemporary interior.

 

Dawn is an experience to be shared. A true four-seater, the indulgent cabin sets the scene for unforgettable adventures with friends. Even with the roof stowed away, the boot offers ample space for all that’s needed for unexpected parties and last-minute escapes. This is a car perfectly designed for spontaneous moments.

 

SEDUCTIVE SOPHISTICATION

 

With Dawn, the journey becomes a destination in itself. Open the door to unveil an inviting cabin. Sumptuous banks of Natural Grain leather form a soft, continuous line with the outside, enveloping four individual seats to create an elegant, inspiring haven. Savour the tranquillity of Dawn’s interior, where pure comfort is paired with a sense of true freedom.

 

Experience the sensory pleasure of the finest, bespoke craftsmanship. Hand-cut wood veneer infuses the interior with energy – add natural variation with your choice of contemporary open grain Canadel Panelling or classic burr finishes. Opt for contrast stitching and Rolls-Royce monograms on the headrests, or truly make Dawn your own, with personalised piping and hand-stitched embroidery.

 

Dawn also offers a full-length central console featuring individual climate controls and personal storage space. So utmost comfort is assured from your journey’s beginning to end.

 

UNPARALLELED CONTROL

 

Let nothing stand in the way of the thrill of driving. Dawn is equipped with advanced driver assistance features, which ensures a smooth, safe ride from day to night.

 

Active Cruise Control uses a radar sensor to scan the road ahead for vehicles, adjusting the cruising speed accordingly. In lower light, Adaptive Headlights adapt to the ever-changing road conditions, while a grille mounted infrared camera detects potential hazards up to 300 metres ahead.
