Rolls-Royce Dawn embodies the spirit of the roaring twenties by introducing its first Collection Car of the new decade
As the world moves into the second decade of the 21st century, Rolls-Royce embodies the spirit of the twenties by preparing its first Collection Car of the new decade. The Dawn Silver Bullet Collection is a reflection on decadence, frivolity, heady heydays, and irreverent past times. Traversing the landscape with supreme accuracy, and traveling great distances with speed and precision, this open-top roadster variant of Dawn is like a silver bullet. Drawing inspiration from the early 20th century roadsters – rare, glamorous machines forever associated with bright young things and rakish Hollywood rebels, the Dawn Silver Bullet Collection captures the carefree attitude of those far-off days in a bold, contemporary expression designed for today’s non-conformists and pleasure-seekers. Seductive and effortlessly cool, this Collection is limited to just 50 cars worldwide. The Dawn Silver Bullet Collection is a powerful, artfully tailored addition to the Rolls-Royce Collection Car ensemble.
Silver can be found frequently in Rolls-Royce history on special trail cars such as the Silver Dawn, Silver King, Silver Silence, and Silver Spectre. The Dawn Silver Bullet Collection cuts a dash in a newly commissioned ultra-metallic silver Bespoke paint finish. The hero of the Collection is undoubtedly the Aero Cowling, which shifts the persona of the car’s high-shouldered silhouette, heightening the sense of speed and purpose. The sporty center spine brings the bodywork into the cabin, giving it the feel of a true two-seater. A vapor-blasted titanium finisher completes the Aero Cowling windbreak and proudly displays the Silver Bullet name and silhouette.
The Dawn Silver Bullet Collection features dark exterior detailing; dark headlights and a new dark front bumper finisher, providing a dominant and determined expression in heightened contrast to the silver hue. The part-polished wheels offer a translucent shadow finish with a single silver pinstripe. Inside, the Dawn Silver Bullet Collection is alluringly tactile and resplendent in materials and craftsmanship of our own time. A unique open-pore carbon fiber fascia greets the driver and companion in a contemporary, dashing fashion. A quilted transmission tunnel, with design cues taken from the quintessentially rebellious fashion accessory, the leather jacket, runs through the center of the cabin in a tailored fashion.
Imbued with British eccentricity and class, this model melds the nostalgia of the past with the sophisticated innovation of the future, making the Dawn Silver Bullet Collection the perfect platform from which to experience the very best journeys around the world. This collection updates the classic roadster spirit and offers an exhilarating sense of uncompromised freedom. With this in mind, Rolls-Royce will curate a series of ‘Silver Bullet Drives’, epic road trips for owners of this contemporary collection, made available via Whispers, Rolls-Royce’s exclusive, digital home for Rolls-Royce clients around the world.
