The first Rolls-Royce Dawn has been sold at the 2016 Naples Winter Wine Auction for $750,000.

The winning bid was submitted by Californian collector Julian Movsesian who will take delivery of the model in April. The car will be built later this month and feature an Andalusian exterior with a Deep Red roof.  The convertible will also come equipped with an Arctic White interior with contrasting Consort Red accents.  Other highlights include bespoke “Build No.1 for Dawn in North America" sill plates and Santos Palisander Canadel wood trim which Rolls-Royce describes as a "handcrafted finish of open pore Indian Rosewood."

Like the standard model, power is provided by a biturbo 6.6-liter V12 engine that produces 563 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque.  It enables the convertible to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 155 mph.

The first Dawn was valued at more than $400,000 and all proceeds from the auction will benefit the Naples Children & Education Foundation which has "given out annual grants to more than 40 nonprofit agencies and has impacted the lives of about 200,000 children."
