One of the most prominent things that makes a luxury vehicle different compared to a regular car is the controls that come with it. A luxury vehicle may have different controls or exclusive car control options.

Determine Whether the Vehicle Is a Manual, Automatic, or Dual-Clutch

Depending on where the location, most vehicles are either automatic or manual transmissions. In most of North America, people will drive automatic vehicles, while in Europe, most people will drive manual transmissions. Regardless of the type of vehicle, it's important to know your luxury car’s transmission type before driving it for the first time.

Automatic vehicles are easier to drive since they shift gears automatically, allowing for efficient acceleration. Using a manual car will allow for a more controlled drive and make it easier to go up and down hills. It makes it easier to prepare for the experience of driving a luxury car when you know how it functions during acceleration and deceleration.

There are also dual-clutch vehicles that have a mixture of automatic and manual transmissions, offering both the control of the manual and the simple switching of the automatic to make driving easier. Many newer luxury vehicles come with a dual-clutch transmission, so it's important to know how this gear-shifting method works.

Understand the Acceleration and Top Speed

While most luxury vehicles move faster, they normally won't have the same acceleration or top speed. It's important to know the specs of a luxury vehicle before driving it, so you know how easily it picks up speed, which will help you best handle the vehicle.

One important factor about supercars that most people don't know is that some drive slower than most cars. Vehicles such as the Rolls-Royce and the Bentley are classified as grand tourer cars, so they have a lower top speed and will are typically used for cruising during long drives.

Knowledge is essential for any new experience you plan to delve into. Driving a luxury car for the first time is exciting, but having the facts is important to help you stay safe and have a great time in a supercar.
