China premiere of Rolls-Royce Spectre

By CARSIFU | 21 April 2023

SHANGHAI: The Rolls-Royce Spectre, the world’s first ultra-luxury electric super coupé, celebrates its China debut at Auto Shanghai 2023, in a two-tone Morganite with Gunmetal exterior finish, for the very first time.

The all-electric Spectre has an estimated travel range of 520km, and the widest-ever grille produced by Rolls-Royce, and magnificent 23-inch wheels.

Auto Shanghai also marks the premiere for Spectre’s exquisite Canadel doors: the interior panel is crafted from a single sheet of wood, precisely placed at an exact 55-degree angle.

Sumptuous Grace White leather upholstery is highlighted by bold Ardent Red secondary details, while the interior is further enhanced by delicate Peony Pink accents on the RR monograms, contrast piping and stitching on the instrument panel.

Open Pore Tudor Oak veneer panels merge into the fascia surfaces, while the veneered steering wheel spokes addd a lavish touch.

To ensure the famous Rolls-Royce ‘magic carpet ride’, Spectre has undergone the most challenging testing programme ever undertaken by the marque.

It was on the Côte d'Azur that Spectre’s digitally integrated evolution of the renowned Planar suspension system was finalised, with precisely defined responses to driver inputs and road conditions, made possible by the latest software and hardware developments.

Rolls-Royce’s hallmark experience of silence within the car is supported by the clever mounting of the battery, which enables Spectre’s perfectly smooth underfloor profile.

This not only creates a low seating position and enveloping cabin but realises a secondary function for the battery – almost 700kg of sound deadening.

"Rolls-Royce Spectre is perhaps the most important car in our long and storied history and I am delighted to be in Shanghai for the China premiere of this fabulous car, an important step on our ambitious journey to become an all-electric brand by the end of 2030. Shanghai will this year see the opening of a Private Office, bringing the Home of Rolls-Royce to China,” said Henrik Wilhelmsmeyer, director of sales and brand, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
