Rolls-Royce Dawn Is The Quietest Convertible In The World

The latest model in the luxury automaker’s range wants to offer all the advantages of the open-top motoring without any compromises.

Of course, since this is Rolls Royce we are talking about, this type of claim should not be taken lightly, as the level of engineering involved is stunning.

The fabric roof takes 22 seconds to lower or raise and can operate up to speeds of 50 km/h (30 mph), with the company stating that with the roof closed, the Dawn is just as quiet as the Wraith.

Powered by a 563hp version of the 6.6-litre V12 engine found in the Wraith, the Dawn is capable of a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, with the top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The eight-speed ZF automatic transmission uses the same satellite-guided software, using GPS data in order to select the most appropriate gear for the road ahead, in order to have the smoothest, most comfortable driving experience possible.

Does it deliver on its promise? That’s what Auto Expess set out to discover in the video that follows.
