2024 Rolls Royce Spectre Prototype Ride Review

 

In 1900, in his first drive in an early EV, Charles Rolls expressed his enthusiasm for the noiseless and clean vehicle, he predicted that the EV would provide a "clean, totally silent" mode of transportation. Fulfilling the vision of its founder, today the luxury brand bearing his name--Rolls-Royce--is launching a new model of its own.

In this move that signifies the company's shift toward electrification, Rolls-Royce will unveil its first electrified production vehicle, Spectre, in late 2023. Developed by the automaker's Special Operations unit and MotorTrend, which was granted unprecedented early access to a development vehicle. As part of the new EV evaluation, industry cold-weather testing was performed in Arjeplog, Sweden, allowing Rolls Royce engineers to evaluate the vehicle's electrified components. 

Rolls-Royce has established the new “Spectre” model as the spiritual successor to the ultra-rare, V-12-powered 2009 Phantom Coupe. Even scarcer than the shortened Phantom was that car's inspiration, the one-off 100EX. This 2004 concept was an über-grand statement, powered by a 9.0-liter V-16.

Spectre is said to be the most aerodynamic Roller ever. A revised Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament that crouches somewhat lower, enabling air to flow more softly over its surfaces, contributing to a preliminary drag coefficient of 0.26. 

Tall sills, vertically scaled instruments, and massive front seats characterize the Rolls-Royce cabin. When you press a button on the center console, the door closes with an oh-so-plutocratic sweep. Front seat occupants are surrounded by high doorsills, while the rear perches easily accommodate full-grown adults. Even cranked to their highest altitude, occupants feel dwarfed by the car's proportions.

The car has instant power and torque, which surprises you when you tip the accelerator. You feel the wave of power from its massive batteries, which reportedly weigh 1,500 pounds. While it has a stately acceleration, it is enjoyable above 40 mph.  

Development of the Rolls-Royce Spectre is ongoing, with some 1.5 million programming steps remaining to be made, including high-temperature testing in hot weather conditions. This pre-production model of the Rolls-Royce Spectre felt swift, isolated, and solid in its relationship between driver and road. The company is still working out some details, such as if the car will have a driver-adjustable regen setting. As Rolls-Royce strives for a fully electric lineup by 2030, batteries power will play an increasingly important role in the brand's pursuit of quick, quiet travel.

In the meantime, its current car lineup is famous for its refined driving experience. Although its name is often associated with luxury and reliability, Rolls-Royce vehicles are still prone to damage caused by road debris, dust, gravel, and even dirt from the road itself.
