Rolls-Royce Specter spotted in road tests for the first time – DRIVE

The company published several teasers of the car in September, but outside spy footage allowed a closer look at the model. Recall that its sales will begin in 2023.

Rolls-Royce said in the spring that the 2021 model year will be the last for the Wraith and Dawn pair in the United States. In other markets, the coupe and convertible will hold out until 2023. And it is already clear that the Rolls-Royce Specter electric car will become a kind of replacement for them. Unlike the Wraith, based on the BMW F01 platform, the Specter uses Rolls-Royce Architecture of Luxury. And yet that doesn’t rule out big overlaps with electric BMWs. As it turned out, even in the design of the two-door one can see a resemblance to the upcoming “Bavarians”.

The Specter is even more streamlined and elongated than the Wraith, and the protruding and close to the canvas splitter will give odds to any old Rolls-Royce.

The front optics are clearly divided into two floors, the running lights are raised high, and the headlights are now lower. Photospies observed a similar layout on the BMW i7. True, the new “seven” will outstrip the Rolls in terms of the size of the radiator grill. Specter appears to be on a course to reduce it. But what can literally intersect is electric motors and a battery. Unofficial data promise an electric seventh series in the top version, three 480 kW engines (more than 650 forces) and a 120 kW • h battery. Or the Specter will overlap with the BMW iX M60 crossover (it will have more than 600 forces). The first solution is more attractive, because the newcomer needs to surpass the retiring Wraith (632 hp) in power.
