“This is the part where you take the driver’s seat,” my chauffer announces as he rolls the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom to a gentle stop on the banks of Lake Lucerne, Switzerland. I love driving more than the next guy, but with my bare feet buried in creamy wool carpets and my reclined backside basking in a gentle wave massage, I give pause to the idea of peeling away from the aft seat. As first world dilemmas go this one’s pretty epic, and I have Rolls-Royce’s latest flagship to thank for it.
