Kotsalis added that the premium marque has already witnessed an influx of younger clientele. Rolls-Royce characterizes Dawn as the “sexiest Rolls ever built.” The fourseat drophead coupé appeals to a new generation of Roll-Royce enthusiasts who are enticed by the bespoke craftsmanship and bold performance of Dawn. Rolls-Royce engineers describe Dawn as the quietest convertible ever made, featuring a “Silent Ballet” folding mechanism that stows the roof in 22 seconds. With classic design, a contemporary and sumptuous interior, and the technology of a 563-hp twinturbo V12 engine, Dawn is set to chart a new future for Rolls-Royce. Photos by Todd Duncan Studios »
