2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn Preview

2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn – Convertibles remain popular in certain segments of the car market, especially in the most high. That is why such a small Rolls-Royce launched ten years ago showing an open car: the Phantom Drophead Coupé, based on the Phantom-mount – the ‘ big ‘ Rolls as it were. Before that there was a gap of twelve years since the beloved Corniche had gone defunct, but in the meantime experienced the brand one of the most turbulent periods in its history.

BMW Group eventually acquired the Rolls-Royce, but not the factory in Crewe (where still Bentleys and so is owned by the Volkswagen Group): the production of Rolls-Royce moved in 2003 to Goodwood.

Of the Phantom Coupé and Drophead Coupé walk at this time the last copies of the ‘ band ‘, in a limited series that the name Zenith Collection. Meanwhile, the British manufacturer for several years now working hard on a new generation of prestigious cars, including the new Phantom, which in 2018 should see the light of day. The most prestigious Rolls, however, gets no coupé or open more derivatives. Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce do a full ‘ smaller ‘ family worked out, starting with the Ghost and his version with extended wheel base, followed by a coupé variant, which Wraith was baptized. And now there is also an open vierzitscabriolet. Who got the name Dawn of ‘ Dawn ‘, echoing the Silver Dawn, a convertible model that after World War II (1950-1954) was produced in … 28 copies.

2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn Driving Dynamics. It may be not its main vocation, the 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn can take a hell of a fast run and many would-besportwagen will be best foot should continue to be able to follow. The strongest, however, is that he also performs in all calm and relative peace and quiet, so you don’t even understand that it so fast. It goes without saying that this rather large car look fast country roads than highways or winding roads, where afterwards he happens to very large.

2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn Safety. The base is closely related with that of a BMW 7. Just about all driver-assistance systems are also available, although unfortunately not all default. Also on passive safety is the car of most security features. He was not subject to a EuroNCAP test. We will Rolls-Royce so on his word to be believed when it says that the Dawn the on that front does well … The visibility is open fine, but closed fairly limited (diagonally) backwards.

Comfort.Also the comfort of a convertible depends on the stiffness of his body and that here is very good. Add to that an exceptional comfortable suspension and excellent chairs and the cliché of the flying carpet is not far away. The 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn is also a true four-seater in which it also is, with chairs that can be enjoyed in the back just as much comfort as the front. The climate control in four zones can be arranged very carefully.

Practical side. Boarding in the rear hinged doors that can be closed electrically. In the back of boarding does take some agility with the hood shut. The Interior is very beautiful and luxuriously finished and functional. Everything is intuitive to operate. The trunk is easily accessible, but also very small (and particularly low) by the space that the folded hood. For a car of this price range would be the standard equipment some rijkelijker may be.

Connectivity. The electronics may be hidden behind many layers of wood veneer, the 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn offers the same possibilities to communicate with the car on the one hand and the digital world on the other hand, if, for example, a BMW, a brand that delivers on that front yet special efforts. In addition, the operation is very intuitive, via a turn-and-push button (with a touchpad that recognizes characters written in three different scripts) or voice commands.

For the exorbitant sum of 335,000 euros you get an exceptional car, but that is not to say that the prices for certain options are not a bit about the horse lifted off his. In terms of consumption, the Dawn us then again pleasantly surprised: about the whole test we had an average of just under 14 litres, unexpectedly low for a car of 2.6 tons and 570 HP. With the large tank is therefore a range of more than 700 kilometers.

Conclusion/Rolls-Royce Dawn: exclusive luxury in open air

The objectivity commands us to say that 335,000 euros or more very much money for a (half) steel thing on wheels that can transport up to four persons. But if that’s your setting is, it doesn’t make sense to go to dirty words. For a Rolls-Royce you should fall, and the very attractive Dawn makes something easier … If you have the necessary money. The old adage remains on this matter remains: “who to ask, he doesn’t have to pay the price.” However, the nec plus ultra in terms of comfort and at the same time want to open drive for four appreciates in peace, can hardly to the Dawn. He is so good.
