The only Dawn Silver Bullet Collection motor car of its kind in Australia has arrived in Brisbane. Limited to just 50 cars world-wide, the drophead features a unique Aero Cowling and a stunning ultra-metallic Brewster Silver Bespoke paint finish.
Drawing inspiration from the fabled roadsters of the 1920s – rare, glamorous machines which were associated with rakish Hollywood rebels and non-conformists, the mode is designed to traverse the landscape with supreme accuracy, travelling great distances with speed and precision.
Silver can be found in the marque’s enigmatic history on special cars such as the Silver Dawn, Silver King, Silver Silence and Silver Spectre.
The Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective’s attention to detail is stamped on the car. The Dawn Silver Bullet Collection features dark exterior detailing; dark headlights and a new dark front bumper finisher, providing a dominant expression in heightened contrast to the silver hue.
The part-polished wheels offer a translucent shadow finish with a single silver pinstripe.
The design of the unique Aero Cowling shifts the persona of the car’s high-shouldered silhouette, heightening the sense of speed and purpose, while the rakish silver centre spine brings the bodywork into the cabin, giving it the intimate, connected feel of a true two-seater.
Completing the Aero Cowling windbreak, a vapour-blasted titanium finisher proudly displays the Silver Bullet name and silhouette. Designed to complement the appearance of the motor car, bespoke canvases for colour and detail atop the cowl lids allow for a harmonious flow of colour between the motor car and its tonneau.
Each cowl is equipped with a pair of lockable leather-lined storage compartments for personal effects, while the cover itself is made of carbon fibre and aluminium. This choice of materials makes Aero Cowling incredibly light yet strong. The lids of the cowls are swathed in finest RollsRoyce leather, perfectly matching the interior of the car as commissioned by the owner.
In addition, the Aero Cowlings have been precisely sculpted to funnel air gracefully over the cabin, to enhance driver comfort.
“Dawn Silver Bullet builds on the premise of Dawn’s seductive, open-top, super-luxury motoring experience,” said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Asia Pacific Regional Director Paul Harris.
“Its bold, contemporary design is a foil to current events, an ode to the heady pioneering motoring of the roaring twenties, driven by optimism, opportunity and a love for the open road.
“It speaks a unique language to our new, younger customers who are after a luxurious roadster offering the absolute pinnacle of travel experiences.”
The interior is alluringly tactile, resplendent in materials and craftsmanship of our own time. A unique open-pore carbon fibre fascia greets the driver and companion in a contemporary, dashing fashion. A quilted transmission tunnel, with design cues taken from the quintessentially rebellious fashion accessory, the leather jacket, runs through the centre of the cabin in a tailored fashion.
Created to deliver the world’s most social, seductive open-top motoring experience, with a classic roadster spirit and driving experience, Dawn Silver Bullet offers committed drivers a sublime blend of serenity and sophistication with an exhilarating sense of uncompromised freedom. Melding the nostalgia of the past with the sophisticated innovation of the future and contemporary materials, Dawn Silver Bullet Collection is the perfect platform from which to experience the very best journeys around Australia.
Dawn Silver Bullet will retail for $893,000 AUD less stamp.
