Introducing the Rolls-Royce Specter: A Touch of 007

At first glance, you think you have a Rolls-Royce Wraith in front of you. But even if the vehicle class and proportions have impressive similarities, those responsible at Rolls-Royce never tire of emphasizing that the Specter is a completely new car - of course electric, elegant and outrageously expensive. Strictly speaking, it does not replace the Rolls-Royce Wraith, but the elegant Phantom Coupé. “Spectre shows how perfectly suited the brand is to electrification. Its all-electric powertrain will ensure the continued success and relevance of the brand. At the same time, it reinforces all the features that make a Rolls-Royce a Rolls-Royce,” says Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce. Sir Charles Stewart Rolls, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, dreamed of an electric model as early as 1900: “The electric car is noiseless and clean. There is no smell or vibration. They should become very useful when fixed charging stations can be set up.”

Like the Wraith, the new Specter is an elegantly drawn fastback with a gently tapered tail. Its dimensions are simply gigantic, because its length of 5.45 meters offers plenty of space for four people. Access is via two mighty gates, swinging open to the rear in the typical Rolls-Royce style. The wheelbase is 3.21 meters - just as powerful as the vehicle weight, which is just under three tons thanks to all-wheel drive and a battery pack in the underbody. The standard all-wheel steering reduces the turning circle to 12.7 meters. With its more than 100 kWh battery pack, the electric range should be 520 kilometers and the standard consumption of the over 430 kW / 585 PS / 900 Nm strong Briton is 21.5 kWh per 100 kilometers. From a standing start, it accelerates to 100 km/h in just under 4.5 seconds and is electronically limited at 250 km/h. Torsten Müller-Ötvös: “Spectre is first and foremost a Rolls-Royce and secondarily an electric vehicle. It is the beginning of a new chapter for our brand, for our exceptional customers and for the luxury industry. Because of this, I believe the Specter is the most perfect product Rolls-Royce has ever produced.”

The design is typical Rolls-Royce – imposing, elegant, confident and timeless. The radiator grille is wider and flatter than you are used to – framed by LED lights that are just as striking as the rear. The electric colossus rolls on powerful 23-inch wheels and enchants with a never-ending window line. The optimized planar suspension system, a smooth underbody and a drag coefficient of 0.25 ensure maximum driving comfort. The interior is surprisingly classic – similar displays, applications and controls are already familiar from the current Rolls-Royce models. The well-known starry sky is supplemented by an LED starry landscape in the door and side panels. Reservations are accepted immediately; The market launch for the Specter is in autumn 2023, with prices set at around 400,000 euros exactly between the Cullinan and Phantom.
