The Rolls-Royce Dawn has more than enough room for four passengers. But on occasion for those trips for two, drivers can install an optional carbon fiber tonneau cover, giving their droptop the feel of a two-seat roadster.
The removable piece is officially called the Aero Cowling and was first introduced in 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show. It’s constructed out of carbon fiber and aluminum, which makes it lightweight yet super strong. The piece has shown up on a variety of bespoke builds including the Dawn Silver Bullet which is meant to relive the glamor of the 1920s.
A Bespoke Piece
When it’s in place, the Aero Cowling covers the rear seats and adds two rising cowls behind the front seat headrests. Those cowls come finished in the same leather as the rest of the vehicle’s interior upholstery. While it does cover up the rear seat area, each cowl has a pair of lockable leather-lined storage compartments that can stash smaller items.
There’s no word on exactly how it installs or the time involved but presumably, it’s something owners can do in their own garage before heading for the open road. Rolls-Royce hasn’t announced any details on pricing or availability either.
