Paying homage to the 1950s open top Rolls Royce Silver Dawn, the new Dawn will retain the same styling though it will be seen with a soft foldable top as against the fixed version seen on the 1950s edition.

Boasting of a two door layout and sitting on the same wheel base, spyshots of the new Rolls Royce Dawn convertible reveals design and styling borrowed from the Wraith coupe with high rising shoulder line and rear hinged, front opening doors. Similarities also continue to its interiors with luxury touches of teak for roof lid and a cashmere lined electric hood.

Rolls Royce Dawn convertible is the sixth model in the company line-up, which includes the Wraith, Ghost and three versions of Phantom – Coupe, Drophead Coupe and Saloon. Rolls Royce Dawn launches in the first quarter of 2016.
