Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance
This beautiful and grand 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn luxury sedan was featured at the 2010 Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance. Rolls-Royce only made the Silver Dawn through 1955. The Silver Dawn was Rolls-Royce's first factory-made carriage.

Only 760 Silver Dawns were manufactured, which makes it extra special when you get to see one.

Making it even more special is that most of the Silver Dawns were made for export from The United Kingdom, making this right-drive model an extra special car in America.

The Silver Dawn was powered by a 4.3-liter engine. I'm not sure of the length and width of this model, but they ran between 192 to 210 inches long, and were 69 inches in width and 5.5 feet in height.

Its successor was the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud.
