The Rolls-Royce Spectre is without a doubt the most luxurious EV in the world.
People have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the brand’s first all-electric vehicle – none more so than Supercar Blondie herself, who’s actually ordered one.
Check out what Alex Hirschi made of the Rolls-Royce Spectre in the video below:
Super stoked to be handed the keys to the all-new Roller, Alex was understandably excited to hop inside, but first she talked us through the exterior.
Not only is the Spectre the first all-electric Rolls-Royce, it features plenty of other firsts, too.
For starters, it sits on 23-inch rims – the biggest ever wheel on a coupé.
Another first: the Spectre boasts the widest grille ever seen on a Rolls-Royce – and of course, it lights up.
The all-new model also features the biggest ever Rolls-Royce doors, meaning you get a lot more room to access the back seats.
Just looking at the side profile of the car, you’d be forgiven for thinking it resembles the Rolls-Royce Wraith.
But, it’s not the successor of the Wraith – it’s actually the successor of the Phantom Coupé.
The particular model in the video is finished in Chartreuse and Black Diamond.
And just like the Phantom Coupé, the Spectre features split headlights.
Then round the back there’s a set of island taillights that protrude from the body of the car.
A closer look reveals delicate etching and the ‘RR’ logo hidden behind the glass.
While round the back, Alex took the opportunity to pop the trunk to see how much space there is and, much to her surprise, it’s very spacious indeed.
Enough was enough, and Alex couldn’t wait any longer to see inside the cabin of the Rolls-Royce Spectre.
After swinging one of the spectacular doors open, she was taken aback by the plush interior.
The interior color combo matches perfectly with the exterior: with Chartreuse, pink and white trimmed seats.
While it’s a beauty, it’s arguably not the most stunning we’ve seen; that title goes to this Spectre unveiled with a custom hue.
Alex’s personal highlight is the starlight doors – 5,000 lights added by hand.
There’s a starlight roof and dashboard, too, as well as the signature Rolls-Royce umbrella tucked away in the door jamb.
But, while the Rolls-Royce Spectre marks new territory for the British brand, they wanted to make it a Roller first – it’s just a side note that it’s electric.
In other words, they wanted it to look and feel like any other Roller – and they’ve done that perfectly.
The buttons and switches are typically Rolls-Royce, but it features mod cons like wireless charging and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
Other nice little touches are a full digital display, which actually matches the color of the car, as well as the word ‘Spectre’ written on the dash in front of the passenger.
You’re probably wondering how on earth you open those big, heavy doors when you want to get out?
The answer: you hold the door handle down and it swings open for you, so you don’t have to push the actual door.
It’s like you have a chauffeur without missing out on the joy of driving.
Now for the all-important bit – how it drives.
The Rolls-Royce Spectre has the equivalent to 580 horsepower under its hood, meaning it’s good for 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.5 seconds – the same as a Wraith.
Being all electric, the Spectre has a range of 530 kilometers (329 miles) and can be charged from 0-80 percent in around 38 minutes.
Rolls-Royce has stuck to its word, as the Spectre is very smooth and is like driving on a cloud, but as soon as you hit the gas – wham.
Despite being such a heavy car, it’s quick to pick up and just goes to show that Rolls-Royce is perfectly suited to battery-powered cars.
