The new 2019 Rolls Royce Dawn Black Badge combines supreme luxury with speed and performance. The brand needs little introduction and has been synonymous with excellent motoring throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. The Dawn is a more purposeful, blacker version of the standard Dawn drop-top affording an uncompromising expression of open-top luxury with high performance based on a 593bhp engine. The Black Badge versions of the Ghost and Wraith were introduced alongside the Dawn, and they signify additional power.
The most impressive improvements have been made to the engine, which adds an extra 30bhp. The new 6.6-litre, twin-turbo V12 engine produces 593bhp, and the torque is increased by 15 lb-ft up to 620 lb-ft. The Dawn propels you from 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds delivering an impressive top speed of 155mph. The transmission has also been enhanced to offer a more involved driving experience which is spirited, yet still retains the Dawn’s peerless qualities and smooth ride. The breaks are larger in diameter than the standard Dawn, and the steering is quicker and more responsive.
The new exhaust system emits a low, growling menacing tone and the Dawn Black Badge will appeal to the younger and more dynamic customer. There are many subtle, yet crucial differences between the Black Badge and standard Dawn. With a darker chrome finishing, the Dawn is moodier and more aggressive looking, producing a deep, dark, and intense black with a high-gloss paint finishing. The interior is full of black leather, a new aluminium carbon composite trim, and there are plenty of alternatives for customisation. The price of the 2019 Rolls Royce Dawn Black Badge is $500,000, and the sky’s the limit.
