The latest video from Carfection reviews the Rolls-Royce Dawn and it does so in a spectacular way, with shots probably worthy of the equivalent of automotive Oscars, if they existed. Of course, the luxurious drophead also helps quite a bit, especially since it’s been often referenced as “the best looking Rolls ever made.” Earlier this year, we also went for a quick experience with the Rolls-Royce Dawn in California and we loved it inside and out.
The Dawn feels great in every way and it is effortlessly luxurious, delivering a drop top experience that’s unrivaled at the moment. Within the Rolls-Royce range you can also choose the Phantom Drophead Coupe, but as it will go out of production soon, we’ll soon have to make due with the Dawn.
Under the hood hides a V12 that provides no less than 605 lb-ft of torque (820 Nm) from as low as 1,600 RPM. That translates into an effortless cruise everywhere you go, with quick bursts of power and a dynamic ride, when needed. With 571 HP at its disposal, the Dawn is also quite fast off the line, doing 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in 5 seconds flat, but it’s not as if anyone’s going to use it to drag race, now is it?
