Luxury car maker Rolls-Royce has imported the Dawn soft-top convertible into the country for homologation and marketing purposes. The car is based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe and Ghost sedan.
British luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce is arguably enjoying the best phase of its long and rich history, with sales and profit numbers reaching all time high largely due to the exponential growth in demand of its cars by the nouveau riche from China and India. Thus the company has started to give special emphasis on these countries while designing and launching its new products. One of the recent examples of this strategy is the new Rolls-Royce Dawn Convertible, which has been imported in India by the company for homologation and marketing purposes.
A single unit of the Rolls-Royce Dawn Convertible has been imported by the luxury marquee for homologation and marketing. The car has been imported via sea from the company’s Goodwood plant in Britain, where it is handmade by the finest craftsmen currently present on earth. The vehicle has a manufacturer reported value of Rs. 2.08 crores and is in the right-hand drive avatar. This import indicates that Rolls-Royce India might launch the Dawn Convertible here in the near future.
The unique suicide-door convertible was unveiled last year by Rolls-Royce and is presently the most affordable drop-top in the British automaker’s lineup – affordable being a relative term here though. The car is actually based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe and Ghost sedan, and is equipped with a 6.6-litre, twin-turbo, V12 petrol engine, that is tuned to develop 563 BHP of power and 780 Nm of torque.
The Dawn is a soft-top convertible and not a hard-top one – and of course it isn’t, because soft top is true luxury in a kind of old-school classy way. The artisans at Rolls-Royce have French seamed the fabric-top so that there aren’t any weird concave depressions, present in other ‘pedestrian’ convertibles such as the BMW 6-Series. The top reportedly takes only 22 seconds to go down and the wood decking in the back is from Canadel.
