Three SPOFEC OVERDOSE four-seat convertibles based on the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Dawn for the entire world

Spectacular carbon widebody version, 22-inch forged wheels as well as 505 kW / 686 hp and 980 Nm of torque for the twin-turbo twelve-cylinder

When an automobile carries the SPOFEC OVERDOSE label, automotive connoisseurs immediately know that this is not just a particularly thrilling and powerful specimen on four king-sized wheels. They also know that speed is of the essence in order to score one of the rare examples of the limited edition.

Only three lucky people in the world will have the pleasure of enjoying a very special, exclusive open-air delight for four at the wheel of a SPOFEC OVERDOSE based on the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Dawn.

The OVERDOSE widebody version of equally light and high-strength carbon and 22-inch hi-tech forged wheels tailor-made by US specialist Vossen turn the British luxury liner into an eye-catcher par excellence.

The SPOFEC engineers developed a powerful performance upgrade for the twin-turbo V12 to match the spectacular looks. A peak output of 505 kW / 686 hp and peak torque of 980 Nm make the SPOFEC OVERDOSE one of the most agile four-seat convertibles in the world. From rest, the black exotic catapults itself to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds.

SPOFEC also fulfils individual requests with regard to the interior design.

The development of the SPOFEC OVERDOSE widebody version for the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Dawn was once more implemented in cooperation with German designer Vittorio Strosek. All parts of the bodywork refit are manufactured from carbon, achieving an optimal combination of lightweight construction, strength and precise fit. The high-quality finish of the composite parts, the professional installation and the flawless paintwork all correspond to the high standards of the base vehicle, of course.

Just as priceless is the spectacular appearance. The rear OVERDOSE flares add a whopping 13 centimeters to the width of the convertible compared to the production car. The wider fenders at the front axle, which replace the stock components in their entirety, make the limited-edition model seven centimeters wider at the front. This combination gives the Rolls-Royce an appealing hourglass shape, perfectly punctuated by the OVERDOSE rocker panels with air intakes for cooling the rear brakes.

The larger wheel wells offer space for extremely wide tires and wheels, the latter of which are produced exclusively for the German automotive refinement specialist by cooperation partner Vossen. The choice for the latest OVERDOSE fell on the SPOFEC SP2 design with nine pairs of double spokes and a central hub cover that conceals the wheel bolts. The forged wheels were designed to fill out the space under the OVERDOSE flares perfectly. The front features size 9.5Jx22 rims with 265/35 ZR 22 tires. The design for the even wider flares at the rear axle is even more extreme: Vossen gave the size 10.5Jx22 rims a concave wheel center, while SPOFEC chose tires of size 295/30 ZR 22 for these rims.

A SPOFEC module for the air suspension of the Rolls-Royce Dawn specifically calibrated to these 22-inch wheels is also available. It lowers the ride height of the convertible by about 40 millimeters at speeds up to 140 km/h. At higher speeds, it automatically reverts to the original level.

However, the flares and the king-sized wheels are not the only things that make the open-top SPOFEC OVERDOSE look significantly more dynamic. SPOFEC also sculpted a new front fascia to match the new fenders. It gives the convertible a more striking face and thanks to its sophisticated shape reduces front-axle lift at high speeds, further optimizing the handling stability as a result.

A SPOFEC OVERDOSE fascia also creates a perfect transition to the flares on the left and right at the rear. In concert with the SPOFEC naked-carbon lip spoiler on the trunk lid, it gives the British convertible a sportier appearance.

SPOFEC can combine these looks with optimized performance. After installation of the plug-and-play, processor-controlled N-TRONIC module, the 6.6-liter twin-turbo twelve-cylinder is significantly more spirited.

Reprogrammed mapping for injection and ignition and a moderately increased boost pressure bump peak power of the engine by 62.5 kW / 85 hp and peak torque by 140 Nm.

Propelled by 505 kW / 686 hp at a low 5,400 rpm and 980 Nm, already on tap at a low 1,800 rpm, the SPOFEC convertible sprints from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. Due to the high vehicle weight, the top speed remains electronically limited to 250 km/h to protect the tires.

OVERDOSE owners also looking to tailor the interior to their personal preferences and tastes in every detail can have SPOFEC make their wishes come true in any desired color, a multitude of leather types and a virtually endless variety of designs.
