Introduced as the flagship Rolls-Royce cabriolet at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Dawn became the final open-top gasoline-powered car from the historic British automaker. This 2017 example is finished in English White over a bespoke Arctic White and Turchese (turquoise) leather interior with optional ventilated seats, monogrammed headrests, and contrast piping. A beautifully appointed and sophisticated cabriolet, this 2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Arizona showing under 20k miles on the odometer.
The bodywork is finished in English White and accented by a Turchese-painted coachline on either side. The car is configured with a black cabriolet top and 21” forged 10-spoke polished wheels with self-righting “RR” logo centers. Other equipment includes side and rearview cameras with top view, a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, auto-leveling xenon headlights, LED side and rear lights, front and rear park distance control, a power luggage compartment lid, and electronically regulated Coach Doors with soft close latches. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The bespoke interior is appointed with Arctic White leather and contrasting Turchese piping, seat gussets, door pockets, armrests, stitching, and headrest monograms. The upper dashboard and steering wheel rim are covered in black leather and the cabin is trimmed with Piano Black high-gloss veneers. Optional front ventilated seats are equipped as well as the Driver’s Assistance System One package which adds Lane Deviation Warning, Head-Up Display, and High Beam Assistant. Standard features include door-integrated umbrellas, dynamic cruise control, four-zone automatic climate control, heated and electrically adjustable front massage seats, a premium audio system, keyless entry, and a 10.25” digital display concealed behind an openable veneer cover. The seller notes evidence of wear on the driver’s seat bolster.
A 6.6-liter 48-valve V12 aluminum alloy engine delivers up to 463 HP and 605 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The car rides on a self-leveling suspension with anti-roll stabilization and variable damping control. Routine maintenance is said to have been carried out as necessary and the CARFAX report shows a history of service entries by an authorized Rolls-Royce dealer up until 2022. The seller notes a full service was also just completed in preparation for the next owner.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. This car has been cared for and driven on special occasions and is always stored in a climate-controlled garage. All maintenance is up to date, the car is completely stock. Bid with confidence!”

Paint meters can cause people to reach false conclusions. Paint thickness from the factory can vary (in some cases drastically) as different colors and shapes of the parts will affect reading. It is a good idea to use one as just one part of an evaluation; but one has to be careful to not use this as a conclusive measure
@Narbeh thanks for the input on the paint meter. That isn’t something I thought of before, but will try to make it part of my future listings.
As for the arm rest, you’re right it does appear to be some subtle imperfections in the leather. Not something I noticed before but with some conditioning it can be taken care of.
If you have any other questions, feel free to hit the message seller button and I can FaceTime you around the car.
@carissimo never understood how a seller especially a dealer who sells cars doesn't invest $80 on amazon for a paint thickness gauge, a tool that provides such valuable information to prospective bidders in these auctions. I have two. can the @seller explain what appear to be three round indentations/ defects in the rear arm rests? Was any of the interior leather done aftermarket?
@Boattail I have reached out to the Dealer to see if I can acquire a window sticker.
Can you post a picture of the window sticker?

@narbeh The windshield was replaced under prior ownership, so I'm unable to speak to that.
The car has not been in a collision, which is also verifiable through the CARFAX which is attached. I apologize I don't have paint readings, but it is all original paint.
As for the leather, I've attached as many photos as I can to illustrate the details and condition.
Thanks for the questions!
My name is Gian Paul, and I’m here to answer any questions or comments during this auction.
If you have any questions regarding the car, or would simply like to schedule a viewing, please hit the contact seller button and I will get back to you shortly.
Make sure you have the watch/follow button. This will alert you with a final 30-minute countdown of the auction.
Thank you and Happy Bidding!
Why was the windshield replaced? Has this been in any collision? Do you have paint readings you can post for the vehicle?any information on the driver door armrest and why the leather appears like it’s wavy?
