Under this black Rolls-Royce Dawn’s long hood resides a 6.6-liter V12 engine that, with the Black Badge’s performance enhancements, generates a generous 591 horsepower with 605 pound-feet of launch-happy torque. That’s brawny enough to propel this weighty vehicle with Space X Falcon-like thrust, yet the Dawn remains reasonably docile around town. Still, when pushed hard, it can hit 60 mph in around four seconds, accompanied by a throaty, yet not overwhelming, growl, thanks to the Black Badge’s custom-tuned exhaust system. All those horses are channeled to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and as tradition dictates, it’s operated via a column-mounted shift lever. Braking is secure, but we were surprised to notice a bit of brake fade coming to a halt from highway speeds. Apparently, this Rolls-Royce Dawn doesn’t like to stay still!
