The Rolls-Royce Dawn is not entirely unlike the Ghost and Wraith in aesthetic, yet it’s still different enough to stand apart and justify its own distinct name, notably thanks to its convertible design. The drophead features a sleek, seamless soft-top canvas roof that retracts beneath handcrafted veneers in 22 seconds and that, thanks to some engineering miracle, doesn’t sacrifice the sound insulation you’d expect from a hard top — in fact, Rolls-Royce calls it the quietest convertible car in production. Aside from its acoustic advances, the Dawn’s cabin is indulgent, coupling leather with wood, four spacious, individual bucket seats, and sixteen individually-tuned speakers for theatre-ready sound. And while it weighs in at a hefty 5,644 pounds, the 563 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque output by its twin-turbo 6.6-litre V12, coupled to an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox, gets the car from zero to 62 in under five seconds.
