Blimey! The recent glut of special edition Rolls-Royces shows no sign of abating. Earlier this week we brought you news on the Golden Yellow Wraith which followed hot on the heels of the Wraith Regatta, the Wraith customized by NFL star Antonio Brown and the Beverley Hills Edition Phantom Drophead Coupe. You could say that we are becoming rather accustomed to tuned Rolls-Royces – as strange as that may sound (Goodwood is usually far more reserved than this) and now, a pretty tasty looking Dawn has got our attention.
German tuner Spofec - who deal exclusively with Rolls of course – has tricked-out the luxury model but hasn’t altered the looks of the convertible that much. Hmm, that’s probably why we think it looks pretty good. The subtle changes only enhance the elegance of the dawn; Spofec created a new front and rear bumper, new side skirts, a small spoiler lip and gave it a set of 22in alloys. Customers can also spec a suspension module if they so wish which can lower ride height by 40mm and at speeds of 140kph. There are more optional extras such as a stainless steel sport exhaust systems (it’s 5kg lighter than the stock exhaust on the Dawn) and if you wish to reduce a bit of weight you could tick the carbon ceramic brakes box. This takes off 38kg and improves stopping power of course – and you might need them as the biturbo 6.6-litre V12 has been boosted by 115 horses and 160Nm of torque for a total of 686 and 980 respectively. It’ll hit 100kph from rest in 4.6 seconds making it 0.3 seconds quicker than the stock posh cruiser, and it has a top speed of 250kph.
Hmm, still elegant but now even faster. Sir will be pleased.
