If you’re feeling lucky and charitable, you should take a chance and bid on the new Rolls-Royce Dawn at the 2016 Naples Winter Wine Festival, taking place January 29-31, 2016. The winner will not only have contributed to a good cause, but will also become the first North American customer to own the luxury car.
“I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate the first new Rolls-Royce Dawn for North America than through this auction,” says Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Müller-Ӧtvӧs. “Dawn is the sexiest and most social Rolls-Royce we’ve ever designed and the NWWF epitomizes the social life of our owners. We are proud to make the introduction at this event and help benefit children in need.”
This particular Dawn will be built in February at the Rolls-Royce headquarters in England, for delivery in April. Valued at more than $400,000, the specially-commissioned vehicle will feature a white exterior finish with a red roof, white and red leather interior, full “Santos Palisander Canadel Paneling” and bespoke tread plates.
Like every Royce, this Dawn will include hand-crafted wood and leather, combined with the latest in modern materials, design and technology. A color palate of 44,000 assures that each model is a unique commission. Dawns will have a twin-turbo, 6.6-liter V12 powertrain with 563 brake horsepower and groundbreaking technology that includes the world’s first Satellite Aided Transmission (SAT) that was launched on the Wraith. Commissions start at approximately $335,000.
Bids will be accepted at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort and will benefit the festival’s founding organization, the Naples Children & Education Foundation.
