Rolls-Royce's first all-electric car, the Rolls-Royce Specter Couple, has officially launched - more than 120 years after founder Charles Rolls first considered the idea of an electric car.
Rolls-Royce Specter is located in the luxury electric coupe segment. Although the owner brand denies it, this new car is the name that inherits the spirit of the previous Wraith.
According to the parameters shared by Rolls-Royce soon, the wheelbase of the Rolls-Royce Specter is quite quality: 3,210mm, and correspondingly a terrible weight: 2,975kg, despite the chassis being made from aluminum. The battery used in the car makes the coupe structure 30% stronger than any previous Rolls-Royce.
The operating parameters of the Rolls-Royce Specter are still kept entirely secret, the British brand only shared that the battery alone weighs 700kg and gives the coupe a range of 520km per full charge.
The maximum capacity of the car is 577 horsepower, 900 Nm of torque, allowing Rolls-Royce Specter to accelerate from 0 to 100km / h in 4.5 seconds. The default chassis supports adaptive damping and 2-axle steering technology.
The final power, acceleration, and range statistics are still being revised, according to the automaker, but early data reveals a range of 520 kilometers and acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds) from its 430-kilowatt-hour powertrain.
In terms of design, the Rolls-Royce Specter is clearly inspired by the Wraith and Phantom, but looks wider and lower than both, helping to bring users the feeling of superior sporty. A large part of the car's stance is made up of the widest heatsink ever seen on a Rolls-Royce - a detail that is equally outstanding when there are 22 LED lights included and will be softly lighted when it gets dark to offer the car a subtle and three-dimensional night signature.
It is flanked by headlights placed back in "jewelry box-like" darker chrome housings and as well as more subdued daytime running lights. The real Rolls-Royce Specter headlights are located in the deep recesses below the super slim LED daytime running lights. The taillights in the rear are uncolored, and users can pick their personal colors during commissioning.
The Spirit of Ecstasy figurine, which stays on the bonnet - front of the vehicle, has also been refined over 830 hours of modeling and optimized for aerodynamics. The roof is inspired by luxury yachts, while the 23-inch wheels are the largest size to appear in nearly 100 years on a Rolls-Royce.
The interior design focuses on lit surfaces that are inspired by the night sky. Customers can choose from Rolls Royce's Starlight Doors, which feature 5,876 softly illuminated "stars," or the Illuminated Fascia, which brightens the passenger side of the dashboard. The functions of the car are controlled by a digital dashboard called Spirit, and an app called Whispers allows users to communicate with the car remotely.
The interior of the Rolls-Royce Specter, even an electric car, looks similar compared to its internal combustion engine cars - an understandable factor when Rolls-Royce does not want to experiment with directions with too much novelty that can backfire. Even so, this new line product is still not lacking in appealing factors with digital screens on the passenger side and the starry sky on the ceiling now extending to the door.
Rolls-Royce confirms the price of the car to be between the Cullinan SUV (starting at $ 350,000) and the Phantom limo ($ 460,000), but we can only know the exact number at the end of 2023 when the car starts to hand over the user.
Rolls-Royce will announce more information about the Rolls-Royce Specter between now and the time the car starts to hand over at the end of next year. Along with the unveiling of Spectre, Rolls-Royce stated that its whole product line will be entirely electrified by 2030.
It claims that several of its automobiles' distinguishing features such as "instant torque, silent running, and the sense of one imperceptible gear" will only be strengthened by electric technology. Since 2003, Rolls-Royce has been an entirely owned part of the BMW Group, with its head office at the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, England.
