Rolls‑Royces were destined to be EVs | Thank Frankel it's Friday

I have spent the last few days driving a Rolls-Royce. Actually, I’m not sure you really ‘drive’ a Rolls at all; the experience is more like guiding it, gently suggesting proposed changes of direction which, after due consideration, it will tend to adopt. In a more sporting car, such an approach would be considered appalling, unacceptable even; in a Rolls, anything else is unthinkable.

Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
