We received some comments telling us to write more about Rolls-Royce but they just don’t launch new models as often as some other automakers. However, at 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show this September, this British automaker presented new model, named Dawn. 2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn took after Wraith, but the company keeps on insisting it is a unique model since 80% of this model is unique.
Rolls-Royce 2016 is a luxury convertible which can accommodate four passengers. It is going to be one of the most popular luxury cars produced in Europe, but we are sure it will have some fans in the North America, as well. Rolls-Royce has always been high-flyer when it comes to luxury cars and it seems with the Dawn the company is going to continue this tradition. After the Frankfurt Auto Show almost all info has been revealed thus we can make a decent review of this convertible.
2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn Engine
There were many speculations about the engine but after September we could finally see what is under the hood. Some rumors said the engine of the Wraith would just be carried over but that wasn’t likely to happen and it didn’t. The 2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn has a completely new engine unit which should be named ‘The Beast’. There are no many engines which can stand side by side with this twelve-cylinder. The 6.6l V-12 comes with an output of staggering 624 horsepower!
This is one of the most powerful engines Rolls-Royce ever used and the Dawn needs such a powerful unit since its weight is around 5,200lbs. It is even heavier than Wraith. Acceleration and speed are in the range of the competence. We find top speed of 155mph and acceleration of 4.4 seconds quite decent. There is a lack of info about the fuel consumption but we doubt its owners will care about the fuel economy.
Interior and Exterior of 2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn
In some pictures it may not seem it is a convertible, since it has a great roof. Roof is covered with cloth which gives the 2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn even more luxurious look. The company gathered all critics it received in the past (especially for the Wraith) and it took everything into consideration when the Dawn was being designed. It resembles some other models manufactured by this British automaker but as you can see in the pictures it is completely a unique car.
On the inside there is a lot of space for each of four passengers but there is also enough room for the cargo. In our opinion the Rolls-Royce Dawn 2016 is going to become synonym for luxury and one of the symbols of the Rolls-Royce. When you look at its design, you just can’t stay indifferent.
2016 Dawn Release date and Price
Although it debuted in September 2015 we are still unsure when it is going to be available for sales. In our expectation this should happen anytime soon, perhaps by the end of 2015. On the other hand, price of the 2016 Rolls-Royce Dawn is stunning since it costs $400,000. However, that is something we have got used to when it comes to the Rolls-Royce.
