Last year, at the Geneva Motor Show 2016, Rolls-Royce unveiled Black Badge, a permanent Bespoke line of cars from the automaker. The first models to get the Black Badge treatment were the Ghost and Wraith. Now, Rolls-Royce has announced the Dawn Black Badge.
Rolls-Royce says that the new Dawn Black Badge is the “most luxurious, social and sensual space from which to take in the night air.” I’d be hard to disagree with that statement. The example that Rolls-Royce will be bringing to Goodwood this year is finished in a dark shade of black that consists of six coats of lacquer, which is then hand-polished.
To emphasize just how dark this car can get, Rolls-Royce even finished the Spirit of Ecstasy in a black chrome. Inside the example of the revealed Dawn Black Badge example is black leather with Mandarin highlights.

Under the hood, Rolls-Royce’s engineers have managed to modify the Dawn’s 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine in order to draw out an 30 more horsepower and 15 more lb-ft of torque. This results in a total output of 593 bhp and 620 lb-ft.
In addition to the added power, Rolls-Royce has also installed a new exhaust system that can be altered via ‘low’ button, which Rolls-Royce states celebrates the “hallmark V12 engine with a menacing bass baritone, announcing its arrival with authority rather than hysteria.” The car’s steering has also been quickened, the transmission settings have been remapped and the brakes are now larger.
