2017 Rolls-Royce Dawn

The Rolls-Royce Dawn earned Top Gear’s 2016 ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ award. Dawn is the fourth model in the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars family. It's powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 with 563 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque. It can go from 0 to 160 in 4.9 seconds on to a top speed 155 miles per hour. Power is channeled to all wheels by a ZF-built 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2016 model year sold out.

Seats are upholstered in rich leather while the console features book-matched wood accents.
Like other Rollers, it has suicide doors, a very cool retractable hood ornament, and an option list that reaches as far as your bank account. The new Dawn 2017 will accommodate 4 passengers though the automaker claims that in their world 2+2 does not equal to 4.

The interior is very quiet and might be the quietest convertible in the world.
If you are worried about fuel economy (unlikely) it's 19.9 mpg combined. Starting base MSRP for the 2017 model is well, well past $ 250,000.
