Spectre: Rolls-Royce's game-changing ultra-luxury electric super coupé
Spectre redefines the Rolls-Royce experience, marking a groundbreaking shift as the world's first ultra-luxury electric super coupé, paving the way for the brand's electrifying future. Essentially, it's a Rolls-Royce at its core, prioritising luxury, space, comfort, performance, and ride quality without any compromises, even enhancing these aspects through its advanced architecture and engineering.
A generously proportioned, visually striking two-door fastback, Spectre is the spiritual successor to the fabled Phantom Coupé. Its intimate interior provides a perfect canvas for Bespoke personalisation, complemented by a unique illuminated fascia and the first Starlight Doors ever specified in a production Rolls-Royce.
While each Spectre client is unique, they typically share a deep admiration for exquisite materials, masterful craftsmanship, and a distinct preference for clean, minimalist design that shuns extravagance and excess.
Often younger, self-made and self-confident people, many Spectre clients embrace contemporary ideas that centre on sustainability, authenticity, conscientiousness and long-lasting quality.
As one of the most coveted luxury items globally, Spectre is a personalised expression of its patrons, mirroring their distinct personalities and principles, while also symbolising their accomplishments.
With Spectre, Rolls-Royce committed to an uncompromised electric future by specifying an all-electric drivetrain rather than a hybrid solution. It is fitted with two Separately Excited Synchronous Motors (SSMs). The front electric motor produces 190kW / 365 Nm, with the rear motor delivering 360kW / 710 Nm. In performance terms, this equates to an internal combustion engine of 430kW (584 hp) with 900Nm of torque. In terms of acceleration, Spectre achieves 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds).
In establishing an appropriate range for Spectre, the marque first engaged with clients, to understand their requirements. The confirmed range of 530km (329 miles) WLTP goes beyond these requirements, confirming that Spectre fits perfectly into the lifestyle of Rolls-Royce clients, who have an average of more than seven cars in their garage to choose from for any occasion, and who drive an average of 5,100km in their current Rolls-Royce per year.
Charge time from 10-80% is 34 minutes using a 195 kW (DC) fast charger: this will also produce sufficient charge for 100km in around nine minutes. Spectre is equipped with Active Lane Centring and Adaptive Cruise Control simultaneously.
Spectre has a 102kWh lithium-ion battery, made using cobalt and lithium from strictly controlled sources in Australia, Morocco and Argentina: the battery cells are produced using 100% green electricity. It has been extensively tested in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +50°C: Spectre’s on-board thermal management system maintains an optimum operating temperature at all times.
