It’s not often Rolls-Royce rolls out a new model. Their current lineup, limited to three models (the PhantomGhost and Wraith), is enough to fuel dreams of Sunday drives along the Amalfi Coast until the cows come home (presumably to Monte Carlo).

But today marks the debut of Rolls-Royce’s long-awaited latest model. Her name is Dawn. She’s youthful. Graceful. A 563-horsepower open-top beauty that does 0-62 in 4.9 seconds.

So, also dangerously seductive.

The four-seat ultra-luxury coupe adds striking versatility to the British car maker’s current roster. It’s being billed as the “quietest open-top car ever made” — a retractable soft top that can be operated in “total silence” at up to 30 mph helps.

As for power, the Dawn shares the same specs as the Wraith: under the hood you’ll find a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V12, good for  575 pound-feet of torque and top speeds of 155 mph.

According to the Verge, the first model year is already sold out. Doesn’t mean you can’t ogle. Take a look at the full gallery below.
