After spending nearly a decade as one of the best-selling cars of world's most luxurious car manufacturer, Rolls-Royce Dawn has reached the sunset of its life cycle.

Six years ago, Rolls-Royce had introduced the Black Badge version of Dawn. It was an improved version of the standard Dawn models with several technical upgrades. It was offered with a new exhaust system and a tweaked engine that could generate 30 bhp more at 593 bhp and also provided boost to the torque output which reached up to 840 Nm.

Rolls-Royce Dawn also boasted about its chassis which offered a ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ according to the carmaker. Rolls-Royce claims that an American journalist, while passing through an area struck by an earthquake measuring 3.6 and an aftershock, did not feel any of the two until he read about it later. Rolls-Royce also claimed that Dawn is the world's quietest convertible model ever.

Rolls-Royce is currently busy to give final shape to its first ever electric car Spectre in its 118 years history. According to EPA estimates, the Spectre EV can offer range of up to 418 kms on a single charge. The Rolls-Royce EV can be recharged from 10% to 80% in just 34 minutes with a fast-charger. The electric motor helps Spectre to generate 577 bhp of power and 900 Nm of peak torque.
