Having made its domestic debut last week, the Rolls-Royce Dawn is in the news again. This time, the Rolls-Royce Dawn has been recognized as the ‘Best of Best’ (interior) and ‘Winner’ (Exterior) by German Design Council. The annual awards, conducted by the German Design Council, will be presented at the Paris Motor Show in the Fall.
The German Design Council awards are unique, internationally renowned and honor outstanding product design. The jury is composed of renowned experts from the automotive and design industries. The award is one of many major international accolades Dawn has been honored with since its global launch in March 2016. The launch of Dawn represents a seminal moment for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and promises to attract a new breed of successful, younger and dynamic customers through a highly contemporary, beautiful expression of Rolls-Royce aesthetics.
At a glance. the Rolls-Royce Dawn is considered the sexiest, most social and most uncompromised of all super-luxury dropheads ever. The sensuous lines of the RR Dawn are evident. From the side, the steep rake of the windscreen, the swage line that flows over the rear haunches and the high beltline that rises along the profile give an impression of refined dynamism. Unique to this RR model is open-top roof, which opens and closes in a little more than 20 seconds at a speed of up 50 km/h. The special fabric roof of the RR Dawn is deemed the quietest ever on a Convertible car. In addition, the multi-layered, foldaway roof on the Dawn is made up of Silver canvas and French Seam. Operating in complete silence in just 22 seconds, and at cruising speeds of up to 50 km/h this ‘Silent Ballet’ engages the majority of one’s senses as silence and seclusion are exchanged for the sounds, light and aromas of the outside world.
Interior-wise, Rolls-Royce’s design ethos has created a cabin conveys all the hallmarks of the marque’s peerless craftsmanship combined with a philosophy of effortless, invigorating driving experience. The interior is finished in black and subtle tan leather, with Canadel open-pore veneer on the doors, dashboard and rear deck. Furthermore, Rolls-Royce Dawn offers exquisite options for wood on the deck and cosseting seats to suit individual taste.
