Behold the Rolls-Royce Spectre
The iconic British luxury automaker’s first-ever production electric vehicle - Rolls Royce Spectre
The brand revealed it's first-ever EV with a $413,000 price tag, futuristic design, unique features, and a 320-mile range.
Rolls-Royce didn’t go with a completely new design for its first-ever EV and rather chose to tweak the existing design DNA

Jaw-dropping design that previews Rolls-Royce’s future design direction
A redesigned Spirit of Ecstasy for the company’s brand new chapter in car making. The iconic hood ornament has always been central to the brand’s image

Rolls-Royce says it took more than 800 hours of design, development, and wind-tunnel testing to completely overhaul the iconic symbol.

The wheels of the Spectre feature a beautiful fan-blade shape design. With a 23-inch diameter, they are also the biggest wheels ever to be fitted to a Rolls-Royce.

The first thing you’ll notice is the starlight feature than has been extended from the headliner to the door cards, and we must say that it looks fantastic.
In addition to that, the dashboard is splattered with digital displays, but not in a Tesla way. It still very much looks like a Rolls-Royce.
The Spectre also gets a full-digital instrument console, which is also a first.
Powertrain and numbers
The Spectre features a dual-motor setup powering both axles, giving it all-wheel drive.
