Rolls-Royce claims that the Dawn is the quietest soft-top available right now thanks to the French Seam that ensures that the air flow over the roof doesn’t make too much noise.

Rolls-Royce shows off latest soft-top convertible Dawn
Rolls-Royce claims that the Dawn is the quietest soft-top available right now thanks to the French Seam that ensures that the air flow over the roof doesn’t make too much noise.

Rolls-Royce has just unveiled its latest soft-top convertible, the Dawn. This new car carries forward the heritage of the 1952 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn drophead.

The new Dawn inherits its basic design cues from the other cars in the fleet. It also continues to maintain the company’s design principles such as 2:1 wheel height to body height, a long bonnet with a short front overhang, a tapering rear graphic and a high shoulder line. Rolls-Royce says that 80 per cent of the body panels on the soft-top are all new.

The four seats on the Dawn, which are hand-stitched in Mandarin leather, provide ample room even at the rear, despite the folding top.

Rolls-Royce has used open-pore wood on the deck surrounding the rear seats and centre console while the instrument cluster has been slightly reworked. The Dawn will also feature Rolls-Royce’s bespoke 16-speaker audio system.

Rolls-Royce claims that the Dawn is the quietest soft-top available right now thanks to the French Seam that ensures that the air flow over the roof doesn’t make too much noise. According to Rolls-Royce, the top, which opens in 22 seconds, can be operated when driving at speeds up to 50kmph.

“Our new Rolls-Royce Dawn promises a striking, seductive encounter like no other Rolls-Royce to date, and begins a new age of open-top, super-luxury motoring. Dawn is a beautiful new motor car that offers the most uncompromised open-top motoring experience in the world. It will be the most social of super-luxury drophead motor cars for those who wish to bathe in the sunlight of the world’s most exclusive social hotspots.,” said Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, the chief executive officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
