2017 Rolls Royce Dawn Provides The Highest Level of Luxury

By

Rolls-Royce are famous for just one thing; luxury.

Earlier this year, Rolls-Royce unveiled their new offering, a super luxury convertible called the Dawn. It aims to be the world’s most quietest convertible, as well as having the most luxurious interior of any car in the world. That’s some marketing hype to live up to. But if anyone can offer that level of luxury and insulation, it would be Rolls-Royce.

2017 Rolls Royce Dawn Release date

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn had its debut at the 2016 Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year, it still isn’t available but Rolls-Royce dealers are currently taking orders for the new model, with expected delivery to happen in April of 2017; you won’t find the dealerships flooded with these models, they are all built to order.

2017 Rolls Royce Dawn Price

As you may expect from Rolls, and for a level of luxury unheard of, prices won’t be cheap! We think that the very minimum you’ll have to hand over to get your foot on the ladder of Dawn ownership will be in the region of $250,000; add a few extras into that, and you’ll easily be looking at well over $300,000 +.

2017 Rolls Royce Dawn Redesign and changes

The 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn is a new model, with styling similar to the Wraith, except for the hood. Having said that, Rolls-Royce say that 80% of the body is completely new. But there are definite styling cues from the current line up; the rear-hinged doors and grille are definitely part of Rolls’ signature design language.

2017 Rolls Royce Dawn Specs

Given the size and weight of the car (208” long, 76” wide, 59” tall and a curb weight of 5,644 lbs), it is surprisingly sprightly; 0 – 60 MPH in 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 155 MPH (limited). This is thanks to the massive 6.6 liter V12 under the hood. It produces 563 BHP and 575 lb/ft of torque, even more surprising, the average combined economy figures are almost 20 MPG. The motor will drive all four wheels through a ZF 8-speed auto transmission.

The trunk will hold up to 295 liters and the cabin is the epitome of luxury; even the hood has upgraded sound insulation in a bid to make the Dawn the quietest convertible ever made, by any manufacturer.

2017 Rolls Royce Dawn Equipment

Expect to see front and side curtain style airbags, and if you’re in the front, you’ll get extra airbags to protect your knees.

Technology fitted will include a 10.25” HD screen media system, with advanced media and navigation all controlled by hand gestures.
In the event of a big accident, there is roll over protection which deploys from the rear head restraint in the event of the car turning upside down.
