New Rolls-Royce Dawn has Black Badge attitude

In fact, since 2010, the average age of Rolls-Royce customers has fallen from 56 years of age down to just 45, Bloomberg reported. Various surfaces also receive six coats of lacquer before being left to cure for 72 hours, and hand-polished to produce its eye-catching finish.

Now Rolls is pushing even further into its "youth" revolution with a menacingly stylish line-up of bespoke Black Badge models.

Ron Dennis Is Completely Done With McLaren
The former F1 team boss was placed on garden leave last November after losing a boardroom battle with fellow board members. Dennis's hard personality and uncompromising approach led to fallouts with prominent team members over the years.

In the words of Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars: "Black Badge is for those driven by the same restless spirit that propelled company's forefather C.S Rolls' exploration of the limitations of powered land and air travel". Black leather's monotony is broken up with orange trim highlights, like the last little hint of a sunset disappearing over the horizon. The massive 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 was tweaked to generate an additional 30 bhp over the car's already ample 563 bhp. For starters, the solid black paint finish is created using multiple layers and paint and lacquer to create what Rolls Royce calls "the deepest, darkest and most intense black to ever grace a production vehicle surface". These modifications mean the Dawn can now sprint from 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds. The enhanced Ghost limousine goes for 603 hp (450 kW) and 620 lb-ft (840 Nm) while the Wraith will top them with 624 hp and 642 lb-ft.

The Dawn Black Badge is available to order now, with the vehicle making its debut at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

What's Propelling Cone Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:CNNX) After Higher Shorts Reported?
BONDURANT ROBERT D also bought $5,583 worth of Martin Midstream Partners L.P. (NASDAQ:MMLP) on Friday, April 7. Shares of Summit Midstream Partners, ( NYSE SMLP ) remained flat at $22.65 during mid-day trading on Friday.

The Bespoke tuners also revised the steering ratio, weighting and feedback settings, as well as the suspension settings and components, to reduce body roll in swift cornering with the least possible sacrifice of ride comfort.

In addition to the added power, Rolls-Royce has also installed a new exhaust system that can be altered via "low" button, which Rolls-Royce states celebrates the "hallmark V12 engine with a menacing bass baritone, announcing its arrival with authority rather than hysteria".
