Spofec Rolls-Royce Dawn Overdose
Historically, Rolls-Royces are refined and elegant. A high-end luxury vehicle sported by celebrities and the rich alike. That being said, a Rolls-Royce is not a usual choice for a widebody kit. An aftermarket tuning treatment on a car like this is unexpected for sure, but German tuner Spofec (SPirit OF ECstacy) has pulled it off masterfully. Spofec is a division if the renowned German tuner Novitec Group that specializes in Rolls-Royces.
Now the Dawn isn’t exactly a subtle car to begin with. It’s huge size and gaping front grille make the car a stand-out, but Spofec has managed to make it even more eye-catching.
The widebody kit adds carbon fiber front and rear bumps along with new side skirts and flared wheel arches that widen the Rolls Royce Dawn by 13 cm. Woah. Other enhancements include specially created 22-inch wheels, and a significant power boost. The tuner has increased the Dawn’s power from 570-hp to 685-hp thanks to its 6.6-liter V12 engine. The torque is up to 723 lb-ft and the car now can go 0-62 in 4.6 seconds. Check out the Rolls Royce Dawn “Overdose” here thanks to Novitec Group. Enjoy.

Personally I don’t find this RR to be a standout. It has the same plastic musculature as contemporary Mustangs or Camaros, perhaps drawn to a larger scale. Nothing unique or “bespoke,” in my view.
