2019 Rolls-Royce Dawn Overview

The Rolls-Royce Dawn, a 4-passenger luxury coupe, was first introduced in 2015. For 2019, Rolls-Royce introduces the Black Badge Adamas collection. Just 30 Dawns will be produced specifically for the Black Badge Adamas Collection, alongside 40 examples of the Rolls-Royce Wraith.

The Dawn features Rolls-Royce’s smooth lines, wide fenders fitted over standard 20-inch wheels, and distinctive broad front and rear ends. The single-touch power roof opens in 20 seconds. There are 44,000 different exterior colors available. Black Badge models get 21-inch carbon fiber wheels and a black Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. The Black Badge Adamas stands out even more thanks to a bold black grille surround and the most ornate version ever of the Spirit of Ecstasy, which is made from carbon fiber.

The Rolls-Royce Dawn comes with a twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V12 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels. The Dawn is rated for 563 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque. Black Badge models are tuned for 593 hp and 620 lb-ft. EPA ratings come in at 12 mpg city, 18 highway, and 14 combined for the Dawn, but separate figures for the higher-powered Black Badge models are not available. A self-adjusting suspension system ensures a smooth ride.

The front occupants of the Rolls-Royce Dawn get high-bolstered bucket seats with massage capabilities, while the wide, contoured rear bench provides seating for two. Interior options include different colors of leather, contrast stitching and piping, Rolls-Royce logo or custom logo hand-stitched embroidery on the headrests, and hand-finished wood grain veneer. A proximity key comes standard. Dawn Black Badge models get Piano Black veneer and orange accents throughout. Spring for the Adamas for pearlescent leather upholstery, a choice of blue-black or red-black color schemes, 88 laboratory-grown black diamonds on the dashboard clock, illuminated door sill plates, and the first-ever color version of the Rolls-Royce Starlight Headliner, which features 1,340 fiber optic lights.

The Dawn’s infotainment system is based on a 10.3-inch LED display controlled by a dial and a touch pad and includes navigation. The AM/FM radio, HD Radio, satellite radio, and a CD player with MP3 compatibility come standard, and the optional Bespoke audio system provides 18 speakers. Features such as built-in Wi-Fi, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay are not supported.

The Rolls-Royce Dawn has not been crash tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Standard active safety features include a reversing camera, adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, night vision, a head-up display, and lane-departure warning.

The Rolls-Royce Dawn, with its emphasis on power, elegance, and the exclusivity of bespoke construction, is little more than a daydream for most car buyers. The 2019 Black Badge Adamas collection goes above and beyond in reinforcing this convertible’s prestigious positioning.
