Alex Hirschi – aka Supercar Blondie – just took delivery of her new Rolls-Royce Spectre, the brand’s first-ever electric vehicle.

It may be electric, but it is still 100 percent Rolls-Royce.

And Supercar Blondie’s custom Spectre gives us a glimpse into what the brand still stands for.

When it comes to Rolls-Royce, no two cars are the same.

Each car is customized, and this is no exception.

Supercar Blondie’s Rolls-Royce Spectre is finished in black, and adorned with 23-inch chrome alloy rims, which are the largest wheels ever fitted to a Rolls-Royce.

The illuminated front grille and Spirit of Ecstasy, as well as the turquoise coachline color, offset the otherwise blacked-out theme of the exterior.

Also – as a reminder – this coachline was done by the same man who has hand-painted every single Rolls-Royce since 2003.

Imagine that.

The turquoise coachline also matches the leather upholstery for the interior.

The cabin is a combination of three colors – four if you include the piano black finish for the veneer.

The gray leather for the lower part of the seat and the white leather for the upper part are separated by accents of turquoise leather, with matching turquoise piping and stitching.

The doors are adorned with 5,000 illuminated star-shaped apertures.

And this too, as you can imagine, was done by hand.

This being a Rolls-Royce, one would imagine a lot of what we’re seeing is included, but that’s not the case.

The piping, stitching, the starlight headliner, even the leather buckle holder for the seat belt – all of that (and more) is extra.

Even though the Spectre, like any other Rolls-Royce, is primarily designed for comfort, it’s no slouch.

It makes 585 horsepower, giving it a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 4.4 seconds, despite the fact it weighs around 3 tonnes.

This being an electric car, you can charge it using the usual methods, with public chargers, or you can have a Rolls-Royce wall charger installed in your home.

Precisely because it’s an EV, the Spectre doesn’t replace any specific model in the Rolls-Royce line-up, but it does replace a car in the Supercar Blondie’s fleet.

Specifically, it replaces the Wraith Black Badge sold through the SBX auction platform a few days ago.
