Inspired by the roaring twenties, iconic British car manufacturer Rolls-Royce introduced its first Collection Car of the new decade. The Dawn Silver Bullet Collection is an ode to a decade in Western society of economic prosperity with a distinctive cultural edge. As society moves forward 100 years later, this collection draws inspiration from the fabled roadsters of the 1920s, with the open-top roadster iteration of Rolls-Royce Dawn Silver Bullet.
One of Rolls-Royce’s oldest models the Dawn pays tribute to the glitz and glamour with this silver bullet. The limited-edition – only 50 will be available worldwide – roadster captures the “the carefree attitude of those far-off days in a bold, contemporary expression designed for today’s non-conformists and pleasure-seekers,” according to its announcement release. This rare and glamorous machine brings back an ode to decadence and the ability to traverse the “landscape with supreme accuracy” with great “speed and precision”.
Although final images of the two-door roadster haven’t been released, renderings show why the car received its name as it will have an ultra-metallic silver Bespoke paint finish. Featuring dark exterior detailing, dark headlights and new dark front bumper finisher, it provides a dominant expression on the road, a sharp contrast to its silver hue. Inside, the car is fitted with expert craftsmanship, contemporary and dashing, with an alluring mix of materials.
Crown in the collection is the Aero Cowling presenting a heightened “sense of speed and purpose” with its sleek bodywork and intimate interior. “The rakish silver center spine brings the bodywork into the cabin, giving it the intimate, connected feel of a true two-seater. A vapor-blasted titanium finisher completes the Aero Cowling windbreak and proudly displays the Silver Bullet name and silhouette.”
This model perfectly “melds the nostalgia of the past with the sophisticated innovation of the future” creating the ultimate platform to experience bespoke journeys around the world. It is with this in mind that Rolls-Royce will also provide a series of ‘Silver Bullet Drives’, tailored road-trips made available via Whispers, Rolls-Royce’s exclusive, digital home for Rolls-Royce clients around the world.
