With a few days to go until its official world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the all-new Rolls-Royce Dawn breaks cover, formally joins the Roller family. The 2+2 super deluxe drophead is based on a Wraith, but powered by the 563bhp V12 engine of the Ghost.

So it is fair to say Rolls-Royce Dawn is a sportier proposition than RR’s other drophead, the Phantom. That said, the company is adamant all the Rolls-Roycey qualities of the car like quietness and plush ride are maintained in the new model. They also say 80 percent of the body panels are new in the Dawn, even though they look the same as the panels seen on other models.

Still, the car looks absolutely exquisite. With a name inspired by dawn and the opportunities that a new day brings, this drop-top Roller features a high-end multi-layered soft-top that goes up and down electronically and very quietly in just 22 seconds and at cruising speeds of up to 50km/h, stainless steel door handles, polished wheels, visible exhausts and front and rear bumper jewellery, plus 21 inch wheels and a bespoke grille. The famous wood decking is also present, and it flows down the ‘Waterfall’ between the rear seats.

Rolls-Royce Dawn also comes with a Bespoke Audio system designed for specifically for the open-top barge, which is good, because we reckon you won’t be hearing the twin-turbo 6.6-litre V12 powertrain much. You will, however, feel its 563bhp and 780Nm of torque as works its way to the ground through a Satellite Aided Transmission, propelling you from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds.
