The calendar has ticked into 2020, and Rolls-Royce has decided it’s time to celebrate.

Following in the footsteps of cars such as the Wraith Eagle VIII, the new Dawn Silver Bullet Collection celebrates the pre-Great Depression excess of the roaring twenties.

A run of 50 will be built, and they are inspired by the “rare, glamorous machines forever associated with bright young things and rakish Hollywood rebels”.

The biggest change to the regular Dawn is the Aero Cowling, which sits behind the driver and passenger to make the Silver Bullet a proper two-seater.

Sitting proud of the extra bodywork is a plaque emblazoned with the car’s name and silhouette.

The dashboard is finished in carbon fibre, and the transmission tunnel is trimmed in quilted leather designed to remind owners of a leather jacket.

Externally, the front bumper and headlamps are both finished with darker detailing than stock, while the wheels are designed to offer a “translucent shadow” finish.

No mention of the engine is made, but the standard Dawn is powered by a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 with 420kW and 780Nm.

Expect to see the same outputs in the Silver Bullet, sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
