The Rolls Royce Spectre boasts a design that marries classic elegance with modern innovation. The front features the broadest Rolls-Royce grille ever, intersecting the split headlight treatment. This iconic “Pantheon grille” is illuminated by 22 LEDs, symbolizing the electric nature of the vehicle. The grille’s vanes have been smoothed for better air direction, and the ‘Spirit Of Ecstacy’ has been redesigned to be more aerodynamic. The vehicle’s fastback profile and the largest single-body panel ever manufactured for a Rolls-Royce extend from the A-pillar to the baggage compartment. The interior suite offers nearly limitless Bespoke options, including a new front seat design inspired by British tailoring and Starlight Doors with 4,796 illuminated stars.
The Spectre is expected to have a starting price of ₹7-9 crore, ex-showroom, positioning it between the flagship Phantom and the Ghost in Rolls Royce’s lineup.
Equipped with a 102 kWh battery pack, the Spectre boasts an impressive range of 323 miles (520 km) with a power consumption of 2.9 mi/kWh (21.5 kWh/100 km).
The vehicle is powered by a 430kW motor capacity, producing 900 Nm of torque. This enables the Spectre to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, a remarkable feat for a vehicle of its size and stature.
