The 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith created quite a stir when it was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, mainly due to its gorgeous fastback-like shape, enormous amount of luxury, and the all-new Satellite Aided Transmission that uses GPS mapping data to preselect gears. It didn’t take too long for the British company to announce a convertible version of the two-door vehicle, but we had to wait for more than a year to actually see the vehicle in the metal as a camouflaged prototype. With the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show just around the corner, Rolls-Royce unveiled its new luxury cabriolet.

Although it was originally believed that Rolls-Royce will launch it as the Wraith Drophead Coupe, a name borrowed from the convertible version of the Phantom, the massive cabriolet will actually use the Dawn moniker. The name returns in the lineup after six decades, as Rolls-Royce used the designation on a limited run of 28 roofless Rollers in the 1950s.
