Si bien el Rolls-Royce Spectre llegará recién a fines de 2023, la marca decidió mostrar su diseño, interior y adelantar algo de la mecánica de lo que será su primer modelo de producción 100% eléctrico. Sucesor espiritual del Phantom Coupé, estrenará una nueva categoría que RR decidió llamar “coupés eléctricas de ultra lujo”, veamos de que se trata.

El Spectre desarrollará alrededor de 585 cv, 900 Nm y una autonomía de 420 km. Si bien el peso de las baterías será considerable, RR estima un 0 a 100 km/h de 4,5 segundos, más que bien para un auto que busca relax sobre prestaciones puras. Más importante es que la coupé se beneficiará del torque instantáneo y del silencio de los motores eléctricos para brindar esa sensación de performance sin esfuerzo que identifica a la casa de Goodwood.

Anticipado en InsideEVs Argentina con imágenes de una unidad camuflada (ver nota), el Spectre cumple con lo esperado: es un Titanic de dos puertas con remate tipo fastback abovedado que sigue los lineamientos del modelo que reemplazará. En los detalles podemos apreciar una parrilla delantera más ancha sutilmente iluminada por 22 LED, líneas horizontales delanteras, llantas con estilo Art Decó, sección superior en negro, y luces posteriores verticales. Las líneas despojadas y hasta la clásica figura del Espíritu de Éxtasis optimizada garantizan un Cx de 0,25, el mejor en la historia de la marca.

Las puertas del Spectre siguen el estilo “suicida” garantizando tanto un estilo diferente como un acceso más fácil a las cuatro plazas de este 2+2. Adentro se destaca un tablero con los clásicos lineamientos de RR sobre los que se integran armónicamente las modernas pantallas. Entre los lujos especiales están el sistema de Starlight Doors que da idea de un interior estrellado y los asientos con inspiración en la sastrería británica. Los detalles finales de primer RR de producción completamente eléctrico se conocerán más cerca de su estreno comercial, anunciado para el último trimestre de 2023.

ROLLS-ROYCE SPECTRE UNVEILED: THE MARQUE’S FIRST FULLY-ELECTRIC MOTOR CAR


"A Rolls-Royce First, an electric car second"
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
In 1900, Rolls-Royce co-founder,Charles Rolls, prophesised an electric future for the motor car recognizing the clean, noiseless alternative to the internal combustion engine – providing there was sufficient infrastructure to support it. Today, more than 120 years later, the time has come for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars to fulfil the prophecy of its founding father with the first fully-electric Rolls-Royce, Spectre.

The instant torque, silent running and the sense of one imperceptible gear have defined the characteristics of an extraordinary canon of products dating back to the very first Rolls-Royce. From the front, Spectre’s split headlight treatment is intersected by the widest grille ever  on a Rolls-Royce. The vanes of the Pantheon grille are now smoother in section and a flusher fit, designed to help guide the air around the motor car’s front. Along with an aero-tuned Spirit of Ecstasy figurine the grille delivers Rolls-Royce’s most aerodynamic motor car, ever. The grille is softly illuminated, with 22 LEDs lighting the sandblasted rear side of each of the vanes.

The silhouette’s most dramatic feature is Spectre’s fastback. The proportional demands of Spectre’s scale required Spectre to be the first production two-door coupé to be equipped with 23-inch wheels in almost one hundred years. This design treatment marries the iconography of Spectre’s spiritual successor, the Phantom Coupé to a contemporary Rolls-Royce design.

Inside, Spectre is provisioned with the most technologically advanced Bespoke features yet, for the first time on a series production Rolls-Royce, Spectre is available with Starlight Doors, which incorporate 4,796 in the interior, excluding Starlight Headliner. As with all Rolls-Royce motor cars, Spectre’s interior suite offers clients near-infinite Bespoke possibilities. The all-new front seat design has been inspired by British tailoring, with lapel sections that can be rendered in contrasting or matching colours to the main base.

ALL-ALUMINIUM ARCHITECTURE OF LUXURY

Built on the ‘Architecture of Luxury,’ Spectre delivers the iconic Rolls-Royce drive. A new, highly flexible all-aluminum spaceframe architecture, has been tailored for electric drive. It also underpins today’s Phantom, Cullinan and Ghost, and Coachbuild projects. Royce 2.0. The electric drive technology is advanced enough to fulfil the Rolls-Royce experience. Rolls-Royce engineers ensured the continuity of experience from its current portfolio.


PLANAR SUSPENSION

Planar suspension is the integration of systems with precisely defined responses to driver inputs and road conditions, made possible by the latest software and hardware developments, delivering Rolls-Royce’s hallmark ‘magic carpet ride.’


DIGITAL ENGINEERING

Spectre is the most connected Rolls-Royce in history, harnessing the power of the motor car’s remarkable Decentralised Intelligence processing. Engineers working on the project describe the experience offered by Spectre as akin to “Rolls-Royce in high definition” on account of the speed and accuracy of the motor car’s response to a worldwide spread of road and weather conditions.


POWER, RANGE, AND DIMENSIONS

The final power, acceleration and range figures are still being refined, as the fine tuning of Spectre enters its final phase. Preliminary data shows that Spectre will have an all-electric estimated EPA range of up to 260 miles and offer 664 foot-pound of torque from its 577 hp powertrain. It is anticipated to achieve 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds). With many months of testing and optimization of Spectre still ahead, these figures are subject to change ahead of official confirmation prior to market launch in Q4 2023.
