Driving the Rolls-Royce Dawn is an ethereal experience
After all, it's a Rolls-Royce
Some - us included - might argue that any given Rolls-Royce is only meant to be driven by a chauffeur and best enjoyed in the back seat. Luckily, Rolls-Royce slightly disagrees.
Rolls-Royces aren't known for their lean physique. They're large, heavy pieces of machinery which stand for quite the opposite of spirited driving sensations.
But, and that's a big but there, what they lose in on-the-road dynamics they compensate with class and somehow, grace. Best example of those qualities: the Rolls-Royce Dawn. We know, these are not the attributes of a luxury car tipping the scales at 2,560 kg (5,203 lb).
