The Rolls-Royce Dawn Of A New Era Has Arrived
South Africa’s Cape Town has been the launching pad for many many legendary sports car brands and car brands across the globe as in with the likes of Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren, the recently tested Porsche 911 turbo S and now Rolls Royce has taken its turn with the brand new Rolls Royce dawn. So why would you want this one instead of the better looking and cheaper wraith well this one has been un-officially dubbed the quietest convertible in the world.
Quite something considering the beast that’s been silenced under the hood is a twin turbo charged 6.6 L V12 which punches out 565 HP and 575 lb-ft of torque. All of which means you’ll be smoking the likes of golf gti’s and audi rs3’s at traffic lights while smoking on your thousand rand cigar trying to figure out who to bless at taboo that night.
All this performance is on tap despite its enormous 2608 kg curb weight, expect a 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.7 seconds, 9.5 seconds later you’ve just hit the 160 km/h mark and on to an electronically limited 250 km/h.
