Rolls, in fact, actually believed in 'Unconventional' and not 'Conventional' thinking.

However, the brand had a pick itself up to get to a stage wherein they are now ready to launch the Black Badge model, and it involved reigniting the brand's innovative spirit in 2003.

It led to the launching of Rolls-Royce Dawn in 2015. It is a vehicle that redefined the brand's image and gave it unprecedented commercial success.
