This incredible motor car, designed from the start to be our first fully-electric model, is silent and powerful, demonstrating how well Rolls-Royce is suited to electrification. The all-electric powertrain in the Spectre will ensure the marque's continued success and relevance while dramatically increasing the definition of each characteristic that distinguishes a Rolls-Royce "Torsten Muller-Otvos, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, stated.
Rolls-Royce Spectre Features
The Rolls-Royce Spectre features split headlights and the widest grille ever seen on a Rolls-Royce (Pantheon grille). The grille contributes to the electric car's unprecedented drag coefficient of 0.25cd, making the Spectre Rolls-most Royce's aerodynamic car ever. With 22 LEDs, the grille is softly illuminated. The tail lamps are set into the largest single-body panel ever produced for a Rolls-Royce, which extends from the A-pillar to the luggage compartment and follows the roofline back. To maintain neutrality, the jewel-like vertical tail lamps are colourless. Spectre is also the first production two-door coupe to feature 23-inch wheels in nearly a century.
According to the company, the interior of the Rolls-Royce Spectre is outfitted with the most technologically advanced bespoke features yet.
For the very first time on a series production Rolls-Royce, the Spectre features starlight doors with 4,796 softly illuminated'stars.' The illuminated fascia of Spectre continues the ethereal night-time theme. Spectre is outfitted with a completely redesigned digital luxury architecture known as Spirit. Spirit will not only manage the functions of the vehicle, but it will also be seamlessly integrated into the marque's Whispers application, allowing clients to interact with their vehicle remotely and receive live information curated by the marque's luxury intelligence specialists. The front seat design of the Spectre is inspired by British tailoring, with lapel sections that can be rendered in contrasting or matching colours to the main base. Bespoke stitching, embroidery, and intricate piping were all considered during the design process.
