Rolls-Royce unveils its sexiest-ever convertible

Rolls-Royce has unveiled the “sexiest” car it has ever built, a four-seater convertible called the Dawn.

The soft-top is targeted at those who wish to “bathe in the sunlight of the world’s most exclusive social hotspots”, and says it “offers the most uncompromised open-top motoring experience in the world”.

The Dawn features a 6.6-litre V12 twin-turbo engine, an 8-speed ZF gearbox, and measures a stately 5.2 metres in length.

Satellite Aided Transmission also comes standard, which uses GPS data to select the most appropriate gear while driving.

The Dawn’s specifications are detailed in the table below. Pricing is yet to be released.
