. 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.
ENGINEERING & & INNOVATION The Quiet
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.
