The unique convertible is one-of-a-kind.
None of the proletariat has ever looked at a Rolls-Royce Dawn and thought that it was a bit wanting in terms of luxury, but the bourgeoisie may beg to differ. People who can afford such cars with ease want to stand out, and what better way of doing that than with a one-off commission built just for you?
Pagani recently revealed its BC Roadster Supernova, and Mulliner has shown off a one-off Bentayga Hybrid. Now it's Rolls-Royce's turn with a bespoke Dawn built in collaboration with architect Kengo Kuma. As you'd expect, it's dripping in opulence.
So what's it all about? This one-off will debut "as a moving representation of the new luxury residence 'The Kita' in central Tokyo, designed by Kengo Kuma" and commissioned by global luxury property developer Westbank. This Dawn was created for the owner of this multi-level penthouse and saw the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective work closely with Mr. Kuma and Westbank to ensure that the entire design is fitting of such an impressive architectural inspiration.
"The overriding aim for the Dawn's styling was one of Japanese delicacy with a sense of precision seen in the clean lines of the building". There's a lot more vaingloriousness used to describe how the project came to be, but let's look at the car.
The body of the drop-top is finished in Silver Haze, a multi-faceted color that is meant to evoke the silver-gray materials used in the building's core structure. In the sun, there's a bronze sheen also inspired by the building and its screen louvers and interior elements. Inside the Dawn, you find Selby Grey leather with Arctic White and Black accents, as well as Slate Grey seat belts. In a first for Rolls, the finish of the interior trim panel on the dash is gradated, transitioning from Piano Selby Grey to Piano Black. Elsewhere, The Kita's logo appears as a stainless-steel inlay. It's a stunning look with loads of details to pore over for hours, but you can bet that it will have cost an absolute fortune. Cheers to the working class.
