It's with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to the iconic Rolls-Royce Dawn, as the esteemed automaker is approaching the end of its lifespan. The opulent convertible is intricately linked to the Wraith coupe and the now-defunct first-generation Ghost sedan.
The Dawn has been a remarkable success for the brand, with its drophead design becoming the best-selling model in its history. Briefly, the Dawn was released in 2015, and the more potent Black Badge variant followed in 2017.
Rolls-Royce Dawn has been touted as the quietest convertible in the world by the company. This is due to the impressive noise-isolating capabilities of the fabric roof and the meticulous attention given to airflow and aerodynamic design when the car is half-naked. The Rolls-Royce Dawn boasts a formidable twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 engine that delivers an impressive 563 horsepower in its standard configuration. For those seeking even more power, the Black Badge version ups the ante with a whopping 593 horsepower.
As of March 2022, orders for the Rolls-Royce Dawn and the Wraith have been closed. However, production has continued to fulfill the existing orders. Rolls-Royce has not yet disclosed any information regarding their plans for a potential successor.
