World debut: The Rolls-Royce Dawn Drophead

. The coach doors are remarkable and elegant. The doors complement the long front wings and relaxed waft line, producing a long body profile and a cosseted cabin.

Evocative of the timeless cars profile, they add considerably to the easy entry and egress of rear travelers from Dawn’s glamorous embrace. The rear travelers do not simply ‘‘ go out ‘of a Rolls-Royce Dawn, but rather stand and disembark as if from a Riva motor launch onto an attractive private jetty in Monaco or on Lake Como.

Naturally as one would expect of a Rolls-Royce, the coach doors also serve a more essential purpose than merely a way of access. Maybe just as significantly, they likewise add substantially to the overall strength and stiffness of the body as they permit the construction of an undisturbed A-pillar.

The impression upon entering Dawn is of the four different pail seats set in the midst of a sumptuous and sartorial slingshot of wood and leather. The slingshot idea ranges from the motorist’s A-post to the rear of the automobile, around the rear seats prior to returning to the passenger A-Pillar.

The slingshot type is reminiscent of a barchetta, pulled back, poised and prepared to launch the residents of the automobile to the horizon, even whilst stationary. This design complements the accelerated tension seen in the outside of the vehicle. The interior complements the outside, a place of opulence, security and presence.

The Rolls-Royce Dawn offers four very individual, cosseting seats. The vehicle is a full four seater therefore there is no compromise in comfort wherever you sit. The seats have been developed to assist stress the energetic, yet classy intent and sense of function of the automobile, complemented by an intersecting full length centre console. The upper seat back houses the safety belt harness, which together with the pillarless bodywork enhances and emphasises the slingshot of wood or leather without any breaks in the flow-lines. The wood on the surface areas of the trays are also book-matched down the centre console in a chevron pattern pointing forward offering an accelerated feel.

The instrument dials have also gone through refined enhancements with separately used refined metal chaplets around the dials evoking the precision design of hand-made, luxury wrist watches, whilst the matt chrome centres ‘‘ float ‘in the middle of each instrument. In addition, a new clock design including the new motor car’s name has been presented.



Without concern, the engineering highlight of the brand-new Rolls-Royce Dawn is the new roof. To be a true Rolls-Royce, Dawn had to deliver the hushed driving experience related to all Rolls-Royces. At the exact same time the only option for a Rolls-Royce was a fabric roofing for reasons of visual appeals, romance and brand appropriateness. There is absolutely nothing more romantic than driving a convertible in the rain during the night and hearing the drops pattering on the roof. In conversation with its consumers, Rolls-Royce realised that they felt the very same method.

Dealing with a material roofing configuration, the Rolls-Royce engineering group set themselves a difficult goal which they hesitated to jeopardize on– making the quietest convertible automobile in the world today. This pursuit for silence applied to all aspects of the engineering of the new roof and by extension the new motor automobile.

The travelers’ on-board aural experience roofing up and roofing down while in movement had to be pure Rolls-Royce. The design of the roof needed to be elegant, gorgeous and sensual whilst staying among the largest canopies to grace a convertible car.

Of specific note is how the canopy wraps around the rear seats and down over the window tops of Dawn therefore optically reducing the roofline of the car to contribute to its low-slung look.

Another point to note is the small size of the rear glass– a carefully-judged percentage which heightens the sense of a personal sanctuary when motoring with the roof up.

2 key techniques were employed to make sure the roof not only appears stunning and sensual in its type, but likewise influences the silence of the automobile in its function. A perfectly smooth surface area, combined with an innovative customized ‘‘ French Seam’ ensures that the air circulation over the vehicle with the roof up creates no noticeable wind sound. Inside, the Rolls-Royce Dawn is as silent as a Rolls-Royce Wraith– an initially in convertible motoring.

Second of all, the actual opening and closing of the roof system had to be both gorgeous and unobtrusive at the exact same time. The engineering group even went so far as to invent a phrase for what they wished to accomplish with the roof system. The Quiet Ballet.

And a Silent Ballet is exactly what they accomplished.

Concorso d’Eleganza: BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Photos

BMW took the world by surprise with the reveal of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage at the 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza. “Our Hommage vehicles not only demonstrate how happy we are of our heritage, but also how vital the past can be in determining our future,” states Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

The other day we brought you unique pictures of the 3.0 CSL Hommage and now we have a new set of high-resolution pictures showing the automobile from multiple angles.

The Hommage Idea sticks out with its muscular front end and upright grille are reminiscent to the original CSL and its muscular racing design. There are ‘X’s designed into the twin-circle headlights, to evoke memories of the stickered ‘X’s on the headlights of long range racing cars of yore. The size of the kidney grille is exactly what bothered everybody after seeing the automobile, however we believe this is a design exercise to highlight a future design language where the front-end of the vehicles ends up being more huge — — simply not as massive as this one.

Right here is how our own Nico DeMattia described the front and rear-end design:

From the front end, a constant horizontal line runs the sides of the vehicle. In profile, this line is seen throughout the whole length of the long wheelbase, offering the vehicle a long, low and streamlined look. Dark CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic) sideskirts lend a visual gap between the intense yellow color of the bodywork and the pavement below. While the low hood and roofline, combined with the enormous 21″ wheels give the CSL Hommage an extremely low looking position. You’ll likewise notice the side-mounted exhaust pipes mounted just in front of the rear wheels. The CSL Hommage even has BMW Roundels installed at the base of the C Pillars, a throwback to the exact same design on the initial CSL.

The rear end is where the CSL Hommage truly comes alive, as the aerodynamic rear fenders form upward to create a rear wing between the both of them. An LED light bar runs the length of the wing down into the back of the car and is a spectacular piece of design. At the bottom, a CFRP rear diffuser lends a racing seek to the back of the Hommage. From above, the CSL Hommage shows off its curves, and you can clearly see how the vehicle forms a ‘V’ at both front and rear ends.
