When you’re offered a Rolls-Royce for a few days, you tend to clear your plans. Then immediately study a map to see how many miles you can feasibly drive in your allotted time.
Well, you do if you’re anything like me. With a £331,500 Dawn (as specced) mine over the weekend before Christmas, I put on hold any festive merriment and looked at how far away from congested London I could get, in order to photograph the car in the meagre hours of daylight mid-December offers.
The result was an utterly splendid day in the Peak District, and as well as the shots in this gallery, you can have a look at Adam Shorrock’s full shoot in our Rolls-Royce Dawn review.
All the sensible road-testy stuff is there, too. But here are a few other thoughts I gathered during my time with the Dawn. Because when you use a car for several days, it ends up being drawn into some unavoidable errands, too. How does a car worth a third of a million pounds cope with the normal stuff?
