If your rich parents bought you the new Rolls-Royce Dawn instead of the Phantom Drophead Coupe and you didn’t want the entry level Rolls, fear not because now you can still be better than everyone. To turn your trust fund friends a shade of hundred-dollar bill green, Rolls-Royce is selling the very first Dawn to grace North American shores. It may not be a substitute for your father’s attention, but 563 horsepower and the arctic white body contrasted by the deep red-colored cloth roof sure drive a hard bargain.
The automaker says itself says it’s the “sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built,” and being able to claim that you got your 6.6-liter V12-powered luxury land yacht before any of the other kids at private school is sure to get you in with the cool kids. While the Dawn is supposed to be the droptop version of the “sporty” Rolls, the Wraith, it will ride more softly and invoke feelings of being on a magic carpet. To get this car, you need to bid on it at the Naples Winter Wine Festival held in January and don’t expect to pay anything under $400,000 for this rare example.
