Rolls-Royce Dawn goes out of production; no word on its successor yet
The Rolls-Royce Dawn has been officially discontinued as production of the luxury convertible draws to a close.
Rolls-Royce showcased the Dawn at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was designed to attract young millionaires to the brand and sat alongside the Wraith coupe.
The Rolls-Royce Dawn was a 2-door convertible featuring a retractable fabric top and classic rear-hinged doors. The company claimed that it was the quietest convertible in the world. It also went on to set new sales records, becoming the brand’s best-selling convertible in history.
Like every modern Rolls-Royce, the Dawn was powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. It produced 563 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque, enabling the car to sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds. The Black Badge version got an upgraded motor with 593 hp and 620 lb-ft.
Earlier this year, Rolls-Royce also showcased the final edition of the Wraith called the Black Arrow. The V12 coupe is set to be replaced by the Rolls-Royce Spectre EV.
