Rolls Royce's First Electric Car Spectre
Rolls-Royce has finally unveiled its first all-electric vehicle, the Spectre, which was first teased over a year ago and then tested for several million kilometers.
This two-door electric coupe is the spiritual successor to the Phantom Coupe and the first step toward the automaker's goal of becoming an all-electric brand by 2030.
Spectre has a long bonnet, clean profile, and fastback tail. The design takes cues from the brand's existing models, but Rolls-Royce says it was inspired by modern yacht concept.
The Spectre has Rolls-widest Royce's grille. It's aerodynamic and has 22 LEDs for soft nighttime lighting.
The split-headlamp design harks back to the Phantom Coupe – the ultra slim LED DRLs are high-mounted, with the main headlamp cluster positioned below
Rear fastback tail and seamless glasshouse improve aerodynamics. The fastback roof panel is the largest single-body panel ever fitted on a Rolls-Royce.
As with the exterior, the Spectre's interior is similar to other Rolls-Royce models. In fact it look similar to the current Ghost.
The Spectre's passenger-side dashboard is illuminated with a 'Spectre' nameplate surrounded by 5,500star-like lights.
Its seats are also completely new, with the rear ones seamlessly blending into the interior body panels.
The most talked-about feature of the Spectre's interior, however, is Rolls- Royce's new software platform, the 'Spirit.'
Rolls-Royce had been using BWM infotainment software. Spirit is a connected car interface that controls all car functions.
The Spectre is built on Rolls Royce's Architecture of Luxury, an all-aluminum spaceframe architecture.
Interestingly, despite the fact that the car has been fully revealed, the Spectre is still in the final stages of testing, which is why the final output figures have not been finalized.
