By the end of the decade, Roll-Royce will switch to electric vehicles, and a battery-powered firstborn is already in development. In December, Specter was first caught on tests, and now the coupe is again seen on tests in the same bright camouflage.
The film, although it covers the entire body, cannot completely disguise the design features of the upcoming novelty. In particular, the electric car will receive a large “radiator grille” and two-tier optics in the spirit of the next-generation BMW 7 Series sedan, the updated X7 and the serial XM crossover.
The vertical taillights still look non-original, perhaps this part has not yet taken on a serial look. A cable is stretched from the trunk to the passenger compartment, apparently, the team is evaluating the work of the elements of the electrical system. In profile, the Specter is reminiscent of the Rolls-Royce Wraith, but the “bonnet” slopes more and the roofline has an arched shape.
It is based on an aluminum space frame from Phantom, Cullinan and Ghost, and the filling is most likely borrowed from the BMW iX M60, which is equipped with two electric motors: in standard mode, the crossover uses only the 489 hp rear unit, and the front at 258 hp connected only when needed. Peak output is 619 hp. and 1100 Nm. The range for the WLTP cycle is 566 km, the American agency EPA estimates the mileage at 450 km.
