Rolls-Royce sells fewer vehicles than most marques. That, by and large, is by design, but even so it's sales are rising in the past few years. In 2007 it delivered over a thousand vehicles for the first time. In 2010, it topped 2,700. In 2014, over four thousand.

This Rolls-Royce Dawn Wears Its Darkness Like A Black Badge Of Honor 7
Jan
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Middle East, Rolls Royce Dawn, Rolls-Royce on 01 7th, 2018


At a time when so many are concerned over their carbon footprint and the future of our planet, it’s almost a little sinister to drive around in a Rolls-Royce convertible, what with its twin-turbo V12 and all the subtlety of a frat boy at a pride parade. But this particular example takes that darkness and elevates it to an art form.

Showcased at the world’s largest Rolls-Royce dealership – yep, the one in Abu Dhabi – this Dawn Black Badge is done up in a special shade called Black Diamond.

The brightwork has all been blacked out, too, right down to the Pantheon grille and Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. The interior trim is a carbon-like Technical Fibre woven with aircraft-grade aluminum. The fabric roof is black too, as are all parts of the wheel except for the polished spoke fascia.

It’d be completely murdered out altogether if it weren’t for the red accent leather (complimenting the black) and the matching Mugello Red coachline, which we’re not sure make it any less sinister-looking.

The finished product looks a little more Darth Maul than Darth Vader, but it’s definitely driving on the Dark Side. And driving pretty fast, you can be sure – the Black Badge Dawn’s 6.6-liter engine squeezing out 593 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque (up 30 hp and 45 lb-ft on the standard version).

Do You Find This Rolls-Royce Dawn Fashionable? 17

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Galleries, Middle East, Rolls Royce Dawn, Rolls-Royce on 11 17th, 2017


If your idea of the optimal Rolls-Royce is a special edition model that’s both vibrant as well as understated, this Dawn Inspired by Fashion might draw your attention.

The car was recently on display at Rolls-Royce Abu Dhabi, featuring an Andalusian White exterior, working in contrast with the Cobalto Blue fabric roof.

Inside, you’re looking at a completely bespoke cabin with Arctic White leather covering the seats, center console, most of the door panels and lower dashboard, while Cobalto Blue inserts can be found on the steering wheel, seats, door panels and door pockets.

Potential customers of the Dawn Inspired by Fashion can match the car’s Andalusian White body with three custom colors for the fabric roof: the Cobalto Blue you’re seeing here, Mugello Red or Mandarin.

Spofec’s Rolls-Royce Dawn Is An Overdose On Ecstasy 14

Few cars have the kind of presence on the road as a Rolls-Royce. This tuner thinks it can do better, though, with the release of the Spofec Overdose.

Based on the Dawn convertible, the Overdose is the latest release from Novitec’s Rolls customizer, which takes its name from the British marque’s Spirit of Ecstasy mascot.

Limited to just eight examples, the Spofec Overdose punctuates its presence that much more emphatically with a carbon-fiber widebody kit that gives it an extra five inches of width, bringing the drop-top’s stance to nearly seven feet.

To go with the extra width, Spofec has also dropped the air suspension by as much as 1.6 inches, riding on a new set of 22-inch wheels. While it was at it, the tuner also tuned the 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 up to 686 horsepower – a boost of 115 horses to bring it above the Wraith’s output. And to keep it all in check (while reducing unsprung mass), Spofec fitted bigger brakes.

Of course, a wide array of interior customization options are on offer. This is a custom Rolls-Royce, after all. But no matter which way it’s spec’d, the Overdose will hit 62 in 4.6 seconds with the wind in your hair.

These 7 Unique Rolls-Royce Wisdom Editions Are Just For Abu Dhabi [100 Pics] 7

The Middle East is a hugely important region for Rolls-Royce. Even with sales there stagnating, the region still remains its third largest market, while the dealership in Dubai moves more metal than any other in the world. Little wonder, then, that so many of its special editions are made specifically for the Persian Gulf.

This latest project from the Rolls-Royce Bespoke division didn’t just yield one special model, though, or a short run of them. It takes the form of seven unique one-off vehicles, each distinct from the other and from any other ever made. And they’re all bound for the Emirates.

Commissioned by the dealership in Abu Dhabi, the Wisdom Collection draws its inspiration from landmarks and traditions in the country. There’s one of each model that Rolls-Royce makes, and tellingly two based on the Wraith.

There’s a Phantom saloon inspired by the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, rendered in two-tone white and gold with an intricately embroidered floral headliner, which itself took 800 hours and nearly 400,000 stitches to complete. It’s joined by a Phantom Coupe evocative of the Qasr-Al Hosn fortress in bright blue and white with gold detailing, and a desert rose-inspired Phantom Drophead Coupe in white and a deep wine red.

The Ghost sedan is inspired by ancient trade routes and features a white and gold paintjob with gold brightwork and yellow trim. The Dawn convertible recalls traditional pearling with ocean hues of blue, teal, silver, and beige. And while one Wraith draws its inspiration from falconry in white with gold trim and a deep reddish brown leather interior, the other recalls the Sheikh Zayed Bridge in blue, white, and silver.

Each features specially designed, hand-painted coach lines and little easter eggs throughout, representative of the vehicle’s particular theme. You can rest assured that the Abu Dhabi dealership will charge a suitable premium for each, and that they’ll all sell in due course.
