Model features a handful of styling and performance tweaks.
The Rolls-Royce Dawn is an elegant and luxurious convertible but that hasn't stopped Mansory from trying to improve the model with a handful of styling and performance tweaks.
Mansory has been criticized for some of its styling programs but the Dawn has escaped relatively unharmed as designers have only made a handful of minor changes. Starting up front, there's a modestly revised front fascia with larger air intakes and new LED daytime running lights. Moving further back, we can see front fender vents and new side skirts which promise to the model a lower and sleeker appearance. Rounding out the changes are a rear spoiler and 22-inch V6-style wheels equipped with ultra high-performance Vredestein tires.
The styling tweaks continue in the cabin as Mansory offers an extensive customization service which enables owners to order embroidered floor mats and headrests as well as brushed aluminum, carbon fiber, or burl wood trim.
On the performance front, the biturbo 6.6-liter V12 engine has been tuned to produce 740 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque - an increase of 170 hp and 162 lb-ft. This enables the Dawn to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds before hitting an increased top speed of 177 mph.

The sun is rising – MANSORY-Refinement programme for the Rolls-Royce Dawn.
All over the world the name MANSORY is synonymous with the refinement of luxury cars. With the new programme for the Rolls-Royce Dawn the company from Brand in Bavaria has once again recommended itself as the top address for exclusive accessories, powerful increases in performance and exciting body design for the noble manufacturer from Goodwood in England.
Sporty elegance characterises the design of the MANSORY styling: In order to fulfil the high demands with respect to looks and aerodynamics, the MANSORY designers have given the front of the four-seater a completely new design. Larger air intakes on the newly designed front spoiler in conjunction with perfectly integrated LED daytime running lights give the distinguished Briton a much more dynamic appearance. The use of visible carbon fibre enhances the sporty modern look. Front lip, radiator housing and the lightweight construction of the bonnet show the typical carbon structure. But the flanks and the rear were also redesigned: The MANSORY side skirts were sculptured to quieten the airflow at the sides and to give the cabriolet a lower and sleeker look, no matter whether the soft top is up or down. To reduce the lift on the rear axle the MANSORY designers fitted an elegant spoiler lip to the Dawn’s original boot lid and combined this with the rear spoiler which was also redesigned.
Fitting to the exclusive appearance of the Dawn MANSORY uses rims of the type “V6” with dimensions of 22 inches. The especially light rim also has, thanks to the special aluminium alloys, the approval for high wheel loads. As the optimal tyres MANSORY recommends ultra-high-performance tyres from Vredestein in the dimensions 265/35/22 for the front axle and 295/30/22 for the rear axle.
As sporty as the MANSORY conversion may look, there is also plenty to offer under the bonnet. The technology specialist helps the Rolls-Royce Dawn to an engine performance of 740 hp / 544 kW at 5,500 rpm (Standard: 570 hp / 420 kW). At the same time the maximum torque was increased by 220 Nm to an awe-inspiring 1,000 Nm in the range of 1,500 rpm to 5,500 rpm. With this the Dawn can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h within a mere 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed has been increased from 250 to 285 km/h.
Only the finest materials are used for the newly designed interior. Brushed aluminium, carbon fibre, burl wood or highly polished piano lacquer surfaces gleam nobly in the cockpit according to the customer’s desires and are a perfect complement to the leather on the dashboard and the seats. Precisely hand-crafted embroidering in the foot mats and the head rests provide an additional visual focus. Thus, a style is achieved that provides the perfect symbiosis between luxurious flair and lifestyle.
