Rolls-Royce Spectre Poses For The Camera After Arctic Circle Test

Riding on 23-inch wheels, the electric coupe was harshly treated at -40 degrees.

The Spectre, like the 7 Series and its electric i7 cousin, was tested in Sweden by ultra-luxury brand Rolls-Royce. Prototypes of the electric vehicle have been tested in extreme conditions at the BMW Group plant in Arjeplog, which is approximately 55 kilometres (34 miles) from the Arctic Circle. Test vehicles were driven over difficult surfaces in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius / Fahrenheit.

The first Rolls-Royce coupe with enormous 23-inch wheels since 1926 is not a replacement for the Wraith. Instead, the split headlights indicate that it is a spiritual successor of the Phantom Coupe. Along with the amazing photography, the Goodwood brand also revealed some juicy details. The battery, for example, weighs 700 kilogrammes (1,543 pounds) and has two functions.

Aside from delivering power to the electric motors, the battery is an important part of Rolls-attempts Royce’s to keep the cabin as quiet as possible. It does, in fact, function as a sound-deadening material, cancelling out outside and road disturbances. The wiring and piping channels were installed between the car’s floor and the top of the battery.

Spectre, like the Ghost, Phantom, and Cullinan, will be built on the Architecture of Luxury platform, which is different from the BMW platform. The quiet luxobarge, measuring 5.18 metres (17 feet), will have a drag coefficient of only 0.26, thanks in part to the Spirit of Ecstasy being updated and the windscreen being lowered for optimum airflow.

With the completion of the tests at Arjeplog, Rolls-Royce claims that the Spectre has completed a quarter of the testing programme, which will total 2.5 million kilometres (1.55M miles). By late 2023, the first RR without a combustion engine will be available to customers as “The Electric Super Coupe.”

By the end of the decade, the British automaker will no longer offer ICE vehicles and will solely sell electric vehicles. Mini will follow suit in the early 2030s, but BMW and newcomer Alpina will continue to use gasoline engines.
