Rolls Royce teases Dawn droptop

A new Rolls Royce is always going to grab a lot of headlines. So you should probably expect to hear a lot more about the Rolls Royce Dawn in the next few weeks.

The latest convertible from the luxury marque is set to be unveiled on 8 September, a week before its official launch at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

One thing you can be sure of though is that there won’t be anything completely surprising, something that’s confirmed by the teaser image. In other words, you can expect plenty of wood, leather, and other luxury accouterments.

It also seems that the Dawn’s doors will open backwards like the Wraith’s. Given that it’ll also share a platform with the Wraith, it also seems likely that it’ll be powered by the same 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine producing 624hp (630PS).
