There is no denying that this new Rolls-Royce promises to be the quietest, smoothest, and most sumptuous coupe to bear the Spirit of Ecstasy on its hood yet, whether or not you buy into the Rolls-Royce hype machine proclaiming the all-new electric Spectre a reincarnation of the brand. There is little doubt that the illustrious British brand is entering a new age. we are prepared for it!
ROLLS-ROYCE CAMARGUE from 1980.
That over there? That is a Camargue by Rolls-Royce. It’s always been a little bit of a misfit in the RR family, but time has shown that, much like Johnny B. Goode and Running Up That Hill, folks of their day may not have been ready for it, but their children adore it. The Camargue is one of those “you’re a car person if…” automobiles that Gen X and Millenial aficionados can typically agree was underrated in its day. Similar to those tunes, the Camargue is one of those cars.
If you take another look at the new-for-2023 Spectre, you’ll undoubtedly notice more than one passing homage (or three) to the now-classic Camargue. This is what makes this car unique.
The Spectre, though, is something new despite the allusions to the past (even if it carries with it the spirit of the Camargue or even older Silver Ghosts with it). Torsten Müller-tvös, the very Germanic CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, declares that “this is the beginning of a bold new chapter for our marque, our outstanding clients, and the luxury sector.” Because of this, I think Spectre is the most ideal thing Rolls-Royce has ever made.
Perfect might be a bit of an exaggeration, but even the most ardent Henry Royce fans will have to acknowledge that this new EV is among the most opulently equipped vehicles ever created. Take a look at the interior of “Starlight,” for instance. The Spectre’s inside is lined with more than 10,000 LED lights, which give the space a distinctive, ethereal atmosphere and signal to anybody entering the vehicle that they are about to have an experience. Let that sink in.
BUT HOLD ON, there’s more, as they say! The new Rolls coupe is jam-packed with the newest high-tech gadgets according to RR’s parent firm BMW . According to the official press release, “With Spectre, Rolls-Royce has harnessed a breakthrough ‘Decentralised Intelligence’ system that permits the free and direct interchange of information amongst more than 1,000 vehicle functions.” “(Further) enhancing the brand’s renowned ride quality. As the brand enters the electronic era, its designers have successfully captured a modern yet classic aesthetic that substantially advances the iconography of the company. Starlight Doors and Illuminated Fascia, two modern prêt-à-porter customizing options that its artisans have produced, serve as inspiration for customers to achieve their own Bespoke ambitions.
A lidar-backed road-mapping dynamic suspension system is another ingenious feature that reads the road ahead and modifies (spring rates, damping, etc.) on the fly, hundreds of times per second, to provide the best interior ride leveling and occupant comfort.
the system similar to the active suspension in the all-conquering Williams FW14B Formula 1 car that dominated the 1992 season in concept, with the exception of, you know, digital.
But enough blathering. In any case, an automobile like this isn’t about sensible stuff. It’s all about feelings, therefore I encourage you to browse through this extensive (official) photo gallery, which is included below.
