You really need to check out the homepage for the new Dawn Black Badge. Rolls-Royce has included sections titled “A Powerful Temptation,” “Dark Sensuality,” and “Own The Night” in order to fully flesh out what their new Dark-Knight droptop is all about. It’s delightfully campy, like if Darth Vader took off his mask to reveal a winking Arnold Schwarzenegger: so over-the-top and borderline self-aware that you can’t help but grin just thinking about it.
Rollers that get a Black Badge dip feature a very special, deep black paint job to the tune of six coats of lacquer and hand polishing. Myriad performance enhancements under the dark body make the cars more sporting: the suspension, brakes and steering rack are all updated for enthusiasts. Underhood is the same 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12, good for 593 horsepower and 619 lb-ft of torque.
Rolls-Royce, if you’re reading, the one title you missed on the website is: A New, Sinister Dawn Breaks.
