Custom Rolls-Royce Dawn
At Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2016, Roll-Royce Motor Cars revealed a stunning Nautical Dawn designed for a client from South Florida. The patron worked with renowned interior designer Barclay Butera to create a unique nautical theme for her Bespoke Dawn to complement the style of her Oceanside residence. Butera, well known for his nautical–inspired interior designs, worked with the owner to incorporate her passion for all things oceanic into this unique Dawn. The motor car featuring a Midnight Sapphire Bonnet over an Arctic White body, the exterior palette, selected by Mr Butera and the owner, was inspired by the blue and white motif of great sailing yachts and the color of the sea. The maritime theme is carried over into the interior which features Arctic White leather offset by Navy Blue highlights, including a custom hand-wrapped Navy Blue steering wheel and hallmark Rolls-Royce lambswool and carpet. The design incorporates traditional nautical touches with modern elements like Open Pore Teak Canadel Panelling throughout the interior, a stunning rear compartment Teak Waterfall Piece and an iconic Rolls-Royce Teak Deck. The motor car also features fine details such as a hand-crafted Bespoke Clock inspired the classic “Rolex Yachtmaster” design. The elegant touches also include a Bespoke tread-plate with the name Dawn spelled out in nautical flags to commemorate its delivery at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
