Rolls-Royce Dawn Silver Bullet special edition revealed

New Rolls-Royce Dawn Silver Bullet looks 100 years into the past to evoke spirit of historic roasters; just 50 examples will be produced

This is the Rolls-Royce Dawn Silver Bullet: a two seat roadster version of the Dawn convertible that will be limited to just 50 examples worldwide.

Announced back in March, the first car has rolled off the production line and is shown in these images for the first time.

Said to take inspiration from dramatic roasters from the 1920s, the most obvious change from the existing Dawn is behind the front seats: the rear chairs are replaced with an aero cowling, which mixes the tan-coloured upholstery with a silver central spine. The look is completed with a titanium windbreak featuring a subtle engraving of the car’s profile on the front and “Silver Bullet” when viewed from the rear.

The body is finished in a unique “ultra-metallic” paint finish called Brewster Silver, while there’s a darkened finish for the headlights and the trim surround for the front air intake. The wheels are painted dark grey and feature a single silver pinstripe.

Inside, the Silver Bullet features open pore carbon fibre trim on the fascia, front face of the rear cowling and on the rear deck surround. The tan-coloured upholstery features quilting on the central transmission tunnel.

Power is supplied by a Rolls-Royce twin turbocharged 6.6-litre V12, producing 563bhp and 780Nm of torque. Zero to 62mph, in the regular Dawn, is dispatched in 4.9 seconds.

Prices of the ultra-rare Silver Bullet haven’t been disclosed by Rolls-Royce, but with the standard model kicking off at over £250,000, this limited run model is likely to cost significantly more, possibly towards seven-figure territory.
