Rolls-Royce has revealed sketches of a two-seat roadster variant of its Dawn convertible, of which just fifty examples will be made. Called the Dawn Silver Bullet Collection, the variant is inspired by the classic roadsters of the 1920s, according to Rolls-Royce. The Silver Bullet replaces the standard Dawn’s two back seats with titanium, metallic silver buttresses, with the silver colour also extending to the rest of the car’s bodywork.
DAWN OF THE SILVER BULLET
Inside, there is a carbonfibre dashboard and quilted leather surrounding the central console, which Rolls-Royce says is inspired by leather jackets as the “quintessentially rebellious fashion accessory”. The Silver Bullet retains the 6.6-litre turbocharged BMW V12 of the regular Dawn, which generates 563bhp – providing an artificially limited top speed of 155mph and a 0-60mph time of less than five seconds.
First deliveries of the Silver Bullet are due in the summer, with the newcomer’s exclusivity inevitably resulting in a price tag higher than that of the £275,295 standard Dawn. According to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, this latest model “melds the nostalgia of the past with the sophisticated innovation of the future”.
