Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has unveiled its latest model, the Rolls-Royce Dawn. The model takes inspiration from the automaker’s 1952 Silver Dawn, with body panelling “80-percent unique” compared to its current stablemates, the company stated in a news release spanning more than 20 pages.

The open-top’s designers elected for a modern four-seat convertible configuration as opposed to the common 2+2.

Features include:

—Twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12 powertrain engine with a power output of 563bhp and a torque rating of 575-lb-ft at 1,500 rpm

—Grille and front bumper that focus attention on the horizontal lines of the car, rather than the traditional vertical lines of other late-model Rolls-Royces

—2:1 wheel height to body height

—Wheels available at 21″ polished, and 21” & 20″ painted
