Rolls-Royce Black Badge

Rolls say Black Badge cars "answered the demands of those customers who have said "Build us a Rolls-Royce like no other". It was an effort to attract a new generation to the Rolls-Royce marque, and now the latest entry into the sub-brand comes in the form of Dawn.

As with the other members of the Black Badge family the first show auto is presented in a black exterior finish - in this case a multi-layered, hand-polished solid black paint finish, with the the brand's trademark Pantheon grille colour-coded to match.

Dawn Black Badge is now available for commission, although price and availability isn't mentioned.

Even the Spirit of Ecstasy riding high on the hood has been cloaked, finished in glossy black chrome.

As you can tell from Rolls-Royce's social media page activity recently, the Dawn Black Badge is all about being as edgy as possible, and it has plenty of design cues to suit such a persona.

To match the name "Black Badge", the car's roof is only available in black canvas, whilst the Dawn's rear deck is finished in black leather. Rolls Royce also describes the vehicle as being the "most luxurious, social and sensual space from which to take in the night air". This emphasis on the dark shade extends to the front grille surround, boot lid finisher, exhaust pipes and air inlet finisher.

While the show auto has been tailored to show the Dawn Black Badge's more sinister side, as with the rest of the Rolls-Royce range a full gamut of customisation options is available from the Rolls-Royce Bespoke individual design program.

The car's exquisite interior is just as much a piece of art. Threads of aircraft grade aluminum are woven together and then bonded in carbon fiber. The seats are upholstered in black leather with orange contrast stitching, while a strip of orange highlight runs around the cabin.

The Black Badge won't just be an appearance package: Rolls-Royce found an additional 30 hp and 15 lb-ft of torque sitting unused somewhere in the bowels of the 6.6-liter V12, with this version tuned to produce a stout 593 hp and 619 lb-ft. The mapping of the eight-speed ZF automatic transmission has been rewritten so that it shifts down a little more urgently, to give you appreciable engine braking into corners.

The carmaker also remapped the car's shifting and throttle strategy to promote a more engaging ride, while beefing up the brake system with larger discs, a quicker steering rack and revising the suspension settings.
