First Look at Rolls-Royce Spectre, the All-Electric Coupé
An Establishment Diva for a New Generation
In one of 2023’s most eagerly anticipated reveals, Rolls-Royce brought Spectre out from behind the curtains under menacing, nightclub lighting in the Sydney CBD on Thursday.
An ultra-luxury electric super coupé and the spiritual successor to the fabled Phantom Coupé, the Rolls-Royce Spectre arrives with a range of 520 km and carries all the emblems of the marque’s marque.
The svelte design has plenty of the high-end detail expected of a modern icon. Under the hood, it also delivers the same old best-in-class engineering—instant torque, silent running, and the sense of one, imperceptible gear.
“Spectre has captured the imagination of many, representing as it does, the start of our brand’s bold electric future,” said Irene Nikkein, Regional Director Asia-Pacific, Rolls-Royce. “With its highly contemporary design and delightful bespoke interior, combined with engineering substance and innovation, there can be no doubt that Spectre is a true Rolls-Royce.”
According to Nikkein, Australia remains a key market for Rolls-Royce in the Asia Pacific region.
The release is of particular interest because the company has promised to discontinue the production of cars with an internal combustion engine after this year. The all-electric Powertrain tech takes the signature Rolls-Royce experience to a new generation of clients, only without the ugly carbon footprint.
Customise your ride at Rolls-Royce Spectre – the first all-electric coupé starts from $770,000 + on-road costs.
