The Rolls-Royce Dawn convertible arrived in Australia at the end of 2015, which shared much of its underpinnings with its hard-top coupe sibling, the Wraith.

It shared the same 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 that powered the Wraith, however in a slightly curtailed state of tune. However the engine still managed to put out a hefty 420kW/780Nm.

The fabric roof could be lowered in approximately 22 seconds and at speeds of up to 50km/h, in what Rolls-Royce called “the quietest open-top car ever made.”
