Rolls-Royce Dawn Production Ends, Best-Selling Convertible In Brand's History

03 May 2023

The Rolls-Royce Dawn was first introduced to the market in 2016 and quickly became a fan favorite. The car was designed to be a true driver's car, offering a thrilling driving experience while maintaining the iconic luxury and style that the brand is known for. The Dawn was also notable for its convertible roof, which provided a unique and exhilarating driving experience.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Dawn's development was the company's use of a mannequin in a wig to perfect the airflow over the roof. According to Rolls-Royce, the mannequin was used to ensure that the wind would not disrupt the vehicle's smooth lines or create excessive noise while driving with the top down.

Despite its high price point, the Rolls-Royce Dawn quickly became one of the most sought-after luxury convertibles on the market. The car's sleek design, premium materials, and exceptional performance made it a favorite among the elite and the wealthy.

According to Rolls-Royce, the Dawn was the brand's best-selling convertible in its history, surpassing even the legendary Corniche and Phantom Drophead. The car was also praised for its innovative technology, including a state-of-the-art infotainment system and advanced safety features.

While the end of production for the Dawn is certainly a significant milestone for Rolls-Royce, the brand is already looking to the future. The company has recently announced the launch of several new models, including the highly anticipated Spectre and Wraith.
