Rolls-Royce Has Debuted Its First Fully-Electric Car, Spectre In the Kingdom!


Spectre is the next generation of Rolls-Royce and is part of the brand’s creation of an entirely original class of motor cars, the Ultra-Luxury Electric Super Coupé.  A successor to the Phantom Coupé, Spectre is the perfect harmony of electric technology and reinvention.

Taking design inspiration from many sources including contemporary luxury yacht concepts, this electric vehicle acknowledges its forebearer, the Phantom Coupé, with its generous proportions and split headlight treatment – a contemporary Rolls-Royce design tenet. The exterior- with its straightened form, carefully positioned fender line and waft line help in creating the illusion of motion even when the car is still.

Covered in supple leather, the interior draws inspiration from the night sky. The Starlight Headliner is spellbinding whilst the Illuminated Fascia mesmerises with over 5,500 stars, a feature that took over two years to develop. Additionally, for the first time in a series production Rolls-Royce, their Starlight Doors incorporate over 4,796 softly illuminated ‘stars’ where each ‘star’ is positioned by hand, creating a subtle sense of motion within Spectre’s cabin.

Alongside the stunning illuminated surfaces, the vehicle is also equipped with a completely redesigned digital architecture of luxury named SPIRIT, presented in quintessential Rolls-Royce style. The digital extension of the Architecture of Luxury, SPIRIT not only manages the motor car’s functions, but also seamlessly integrates into the marque’s Whispers application, allowing clients to interact with their car remotely, and receive live information curated by the marque’s luxury intelligence specialists.

The proportional demands of Spectre’s scale required Rolls-Royce to embolden its wheel strategy. Spectre is the first production two-door coupé to be equipped with 23-inch wheels in almost one hundred years. Built on Rolls-Royce’s Architecture of Luxury, which was conceived from the very start with the electric drive-in mind, Spectre is the most powerful and most aerodynamic Rolls-Royce ever created, with every line of its body sculpted for grace and performance.

The Architecture of Luxury has been tailored to integrate Rolls-Royce’s electric powertrain into Spectre, enabling ideal battery placement within the floor plan. The mechanical setup has been honed over countless hours of specialised testing, including in Dubai, and ensures a truly optimal ride quality. Coupled with the planar suspension, Spectre delivers Rolls-Royce’s hallmark ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ – an unparalleled driving experience that leaves you spellbound.

Spectre is the most connected Rolls-Royce the marque has ever conceived. With 141,200 sender-receiver functions, 7 kilometres of cabling, and over 25,000 sub-functions, Spectre can process complex data and exchange information with unparalleled ease. In harnessing this new processing power, the marque’s engineers have created unparalleled levels of detail, refinement, and effortlessness, whilst ensuring the continuity of the Rolls-Royce experience, thus ensuring Spectre is without any doubt a Rolls-Royce first and an electric car second. Spectre offers over ten driver assistance systems – each a manifestation of this advanced intelligence – that accommodate the driver for a smooth and safe journey.

Positioning Rolls-Royce’s entrance into the electric world as a stamp of leadership, Spectre converges the worlds of electrification and Rolls-Royce, heralding the beginning of an all-electric era for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Spectre is available for commission immediately, with the first client deliveries commencing in Q4 2023. Spectre pricing will be positioned between Cullinan and Phantom.
