The Rolls-Royce Dawn has been declared Best Luxury Carby an independent panel of top UK journalists at the UK Car of the Year Awards. Comprising a top-calibre group of 27 professional journalists, UKCOTY selects the best cars launched over the past 12 months, from a shortlist of 56 freshly-launched models. In making their judgement, a panel of some of the most respected commentators in the automotive world declared the following:

A delight to drive and to be in as only a Rolls-Royce can be.” Ollie Marriage, Top Gear Magazine

The car is exceptionally elegant, marrying traditional expressions of luxury, with a modern take whilst remaining technological and hugely connected. Its a movie star car!” Nargess Banks, Forbes Life, Wallpaper*

If luxury is at least on nodding terms with class, the Dawn manages to embody both. Silent running, a gorgeously complex roof mechanism and general air of butlerish brilliance make this peon to UK craftsmanship a winner.” Tom Ford, Top Gear Magazine

Since its introduction to market in March 2016, Dawn has won plaudits globally, including awards from some of the most highly regarded names in luxury and automotive media. Regionally, publications and websites such as the Australian Financial Review, Robb Report India and The Straits Times have similarly extolled the Dawn as the ultimate expression of true luxury open-top touring.

This critical acclaim is echoed in the extraordinary demand from the worlds most discerning patrons of luxury that has driven the marque to the second highest sales result in the companys 113 year history and 6% global growth in 2016. In the Asia Pacific region, Rolls-Royces sales also grew steadily by 5%, affirming the brands strength and resilience in a year of challenging market conditions for luxury goods worldwide.
