Rolls-Royce has introduced a new special edition model for North America – the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Nighthawk. The Phantom Drophead Coupe Nighthawk is the work of the company’s bespoke division. On the outside, the Nighthawk edition gets adaptive LED headlights and a Diamond Black Metallic body paint with a matte Diamond Black finish on the hood. The interior features carbon fiber trim on the steering wheel, the instrument cluster, the dashboard, the center console and the door panels. The Diamond Black exterior theme is matched with black leather upholstery inside, with a contrast of Hotspur Red stitching and inserts. The cargo compartment gets soft leather upholstery.
The technical specifications remain unchanged. The Nighthawk edition is powered by the standard 6.75-liter V12 engine that produces 453 hp and 531 lb-ft. (719 Nm) of torque. The monstrous engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission enables the rear-wheel driven Phantom Drophead Coupe to reach a speed of 60 mph (97km/h) from standstill in just 5.6 seconds and clock a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h).
Only nine examples of the Nighthawk edition will be built.
