Rolls-Royce have officially released a couple of new videos with the Dawn, placing the model into the spotlights once again.
After being officially unveiled a couple of days ago, the new Rolls-Royce Dawn, is being highlighted once more, this time with the help of a couple of fresh videos. The newest model in the British based brand’s lineup is going to debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, next week, in Germany, and it will be offered for sale at the beginning of next year for approximately 250,000 euros.
The Rolls-Royce Dawn is nothing more than a convertible version of the Wraith which is coming with the same traditional and familiar design cues, except for the rear end which has been updated in order to host the folding soft-top. The carmaker says that the huge radiator grille has been drawn back about 45 mm and the bumper has been extended by 53 mm compared to the Wraith.
The cockpit of the luxury cruiser will have room for a 2+2 configuration and we now find a lot of wood and leather details. There is also a four-zone automatic climate control, a sixteen individually tuned speakers for the bespoke audio system and several other goodies which are reminding you that you are inside a Rolls-Royce. Under its hood, the 6.6 liter bi-turbo V12 engine is found, just like the one used on the Wraith, rated at 563 HP (420 kW) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque, connected to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 4.9 seconds and top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) for the 2,560 kg weighing convertible.
