    love the clean and uncluttered lines


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    I like this better than the DHC. I admire the fit and finish of RR as that level of craftsmanship is difficult to find, but in my opinion their best designs are the slightly less corpulent 'junior' cars.


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    So this is a beauty! I looks spectacular! Unfortunately far away of my car spend habit.... beautiful!

    @bridgcar.... no A5 for me!


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    Oh my, if I had that much spare cash I would get this! 


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    Classy and elegant are the words that I can think of.

    The clock to the right of the navi cover is a kludge but otherwise I really like the interior


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    I saw the car at a reveal recently. I think they have done a great job on reducing the visual bulk of what is still a big boat. The orange interior was a welcome bold move. I hope customers will be equally brave in their colour choices !The fit and finish are up to the usual world leading RR standards. The idea is for the to car have an identity distinct from Wraith so it is no seen as just a "Wraith convertible". To this end it will have different power and torque figures. More will be revealed at Frankfurt  - I will respect the embargo till then. No better way of transporting 4 people in a convertible. 


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    The only nit I would pick is that the wood trim on the back looks a little out of place. I mean, it does match the dash, it just seems odd back there.

    Well, that and that, like the Wraith, it seems a little weird to have your side mirrors flailing around out there at the far end of the door when you open it.

    In a car like this it´s not acceptable. Car looks heavy design wise, or massive may be the right word.I like the front very much.

    Actually the clock is in symmetry to the display on the left side of the radio - might look actually much better in flesh than on pictures. 


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    +1

    It does look ok on the other models.

    Both are an R.R. signature touches.

    The wood part is fully customizable though.


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    somehow this droptop looks heaps better than the Wraith without the boot hump.

     

    I can see a lot of second hand Wraith coming!

    (still can't afford one.... nor do I want anywayz)

    Well, that doesn't make the mirror thing less weird, and it dates to a time when there weren't side mirrors and, then, when they weren't attached to the doors.

    The wood on the back looks more "organic" from other angles, just not from that straight on shot from the rear.

    But, these "criticisms" are very much picking nits. It's a fantastic looking car.

    Agree 100%, this one looks better than the Wraith.

    Beautiful but only for people way into their 60s IMHO...

    For me the Wraith is the ultimate dream Coupe. The car looks amazing - in and outside. I agree - it took me a while until I fallen in love but now - GOSH... it is stunning!


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    The back ruined the coupe for me.

    I agree the "hump" viewed from most angles looks awkward. But let me tell you as an owner it is a very accomplished vehicle ( in a straight line Smiley). Just approaching it and opening the door is an event. The driver and importantly passenger experience are un-paralleled in terms of quietness and comfort combined with real grunt in the performance from the V12 turbo. The child in me loves the starlight liner every time I see it. Despite its bulk its actually very easy to drive and manoeuvre even in city traffic and with the camera system easier to park than my Range Rover.

    It is a great car. My brother owns one.

    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    rear of the Wraith is what makes it in my eyes

    nothing like it made by any one else

    car has presence, but not shouty



    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    Wandered into RR at Berkeley Square yesterday and drooled over this:

    not normally a fan of white RRs, but this had a superb presence, majestic almost. Interior was white leather with bits of light lemon yellow stitching and leather. just lovely.

    in fact, top part of the car is flat white, while the rest is metallic white


    Re: Rolls Royce Dawn

    I belive this is the Wraith "Inspired by Fashion"  - looks great Smiley
