The Rolls Royce Dawn managed to take everyone’s breath away when it was first showcased just ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show. This seductive drophead convertible is now available in India for a price tag of just Rs 6.25 crores (ex-showroom). Yes, get ready to rob that bank! Rolls Royce in India has been trying to get out of the old world image and is targeting a younger generation of entrepreneurs.
Powering the car is a twin turbocharged 6.6 litre V12 mill capable of churning out 563 bhp of maximum power at 5,250 rpm and an earth shattering 780 Nm of peak torque at just 1,500 rpm. Mated to this an 8 speed automatic transmission sourced from ZF. Yes, she certainly can pick up her gown and sprint despite weighing more than two and a half tons! 0 to 100 acceleration time has been claimed to be 5 second and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph.
This moving automotive sculpture gets 80 per cent new body panels when compared to the Wraith and can drop the top in a breathtaking manner in 22 second. That too when you are travelling at 50 kmph! If we talk about the sheer size of the Dawn, it measures 5,285 mm in length, 1,947 mm in width and has an overall height of 1,502 mm. The wheelbase is rated at 3,112 mm.
The Rolls Royce Dawn is hand built in Goodwood, England and breathes of craftsmanship.
The luxurious interiors include a new dashboard, bucket seats with soft leather wrapping and a generous use of wood. The vision is powerful enough to make you go week in the knees and convert her as your sole aim in life!
