2024 Rolls-Royce Spectre: An Electric-Powered Wraith of Tranquility

Sourced from Rolls-Royce's official website

 

Spectre; a fitting name for an electric Rolls. While older models have been noted to feature little noise inside and out, this could perhaps bring a silence to it all.

Built on the same platform as the Phantom sedan and the Cullinan, its Wraith-esque looks first lead us to believe it’ll be built on said model. After all, this is its successor. It still follows the brand’s design language quite well, looking like a slightly more futuristic Wraith. Its front and back, BMW-sourced double electric motors send 577 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque to all the wheels, allowing for a 0-60 mph of 4.4 seconds. Sure, it may not be as quick as a Tesla, but we’d like to remind you that you won’t be left with a large iPad in the middle of the dashboard; the interior luxuries of this near 3 ton coupe will pacify you more than any Musk machine ever could. Because no one has an actual use for an impressive 0-60 when commuting.

Weighing in at 2975 kgs, it’s also much more earth-friendly, as the batteries use no rare materials. Higher speeds are claimed to bring more efficiency with these motors, strangely. 260 miles is its expected range, and it has a drag of 0.25 Cd. The Spectre features adaptive dampers, all wheel steering, air suspension, and resonators for wheel vibrations. Passengers will find the signature glitter of the Starlight not only on the roof, but the doors as well. The starry motif extends to the passenger-side of the dash, though those do not light up.

Losing its extensively silent ICEs by 2030 is a shame, but with what the brand has tried to achieve in years, this presents a new achievement. The Specter, though deliveries are expected to be in late 2023, has its own configurator online. Surely you could fancy an attempt in crafting your ideal apparition.
