Rolls Royce Has Revealed A Super Convertible That’ll Make Your Wallet Weep

This is the Rolls-Royce Dawn.

It has a mandarin orange leather interior, 'Midnight Sapphire' body work, and a convertible roof that can be opened while driving at 30 mph.

It is extraordinarily beautiful - and we're probably never going to own one. But we can still look at it.

The first model to be launched digitally by the classic manufacturer, they claim it's the "sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built". And they're not wrong.

An "affordable" four-seater (it's not a top end Roller by any means, but will still fetch a price of around £250,000), there are numbers under the bonnet that are just as dribble-inducing as the elegant aesthetics: a 6.6-liter V-12 engine, capable of shifting all this elegance from zero to 62 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds. 

We'll stop distracting you - grab yourself a bib and set about browsing the gallery below.
