Witness the 'silent ballet' of the Rolls-Royce Dawn
Rolls Royce offers the utmost when it comes to luxury.
And it has a number of cars to choose from.
You can have a phantom either in normal giant spec or an extra giant spec with a long wheel base.
Or you can have one without a roof or as a coupe.
Then on a slightly smaller scale you can have A ghost, or the favorite of mine which is the Wraith, which is sort of the sports car of the range.
But now, there is a new convertible, and it's called the Dorm.
It was initially moved to that the Dorm was going to be a convertible version of the Wraith- not so.
80% of its exterior body panels are different, and its engine, a 6.6 liter twin turbo V12 Cuz it's 563 brake horsepower and 575 pound torque.
That is less than the rate 624 brake horsepower and 590 pound torque.
This is more about luxury than speed.
But before we get on to the luxury stuff, here's what makes a Rolls Royce convertible So special.
Here's another convertible Rolls-Royce.
The Phantom Drophead Coupe.
This is powered by a six and three quarter liter V-12, and boasts a hefty 453 break horsepower and 531 pound foot.
This is a car to cruise in.
Much like the Dawn, it's almost certainly going to be the sort of comfortable, effort-free, luxury experience.
The name dawn is featured on a number of Rolls Royce cars.
So historically, the name is all present and correct.
The purists should be happy.
So the name will have the purists pleased.
But there's more to a Roller than it's name.
It has to drive.
You see, a Rolls Royce isn't a speed machine.
Yes, it may be capable of going very quickly.
At the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed a Royce did the famous hill climb in 52.71 seconds, beating amongst other things two Maseratis, a Porsche, and a Bentley.
But then an open top Rolls Royce you don't go quickly.
You take your time to breathe in the atmosphere enjoy the car, enjoy the experience that you are having.
Each piece of this has been lovingly crafted, polished, stitched, and hued.
The most beautiful, luxurious environment a driver could possibly imagine.
So you can forget your carbon fiber, your tire smoke, and your noisy engines.
Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
There were some fantastic toys on the door and it's roof is particularly special because Rolls engineers have managed to make it as quiet with the roof up as the Wraith is.
No [UNKNOWN] feat.
And when it's going to work it's got to be quiet and unobtrusive.
So the 22 second roof movement has been named the silent ballet because it is apparently an absolute joy to witness.
Inside there's a bespoke audio system that has exterior microphones that picks up ambient noise, and adjusts the volume of what you're listening to while you're on the fly.
And there's no touchscreen in there because that might accrue unsightly fingerprints, so instead the spirit of ecstasy controller has a touch pad that can recognize well, pretty much Anything, even Mandarin.
Like the Wraith the Dawn has an 8 speed [UNKNOWN] gearbox that's GPS guided.
You can't choose your own gears, the car does it for you based on how you're driving and where you're driving it, the car knows far more than you do.
Now the Dawn promises to be pretty damn special and we'll let you know how brilliant it is when we drive it, soon.
