After the bitter cold of northern Sweden, open to the warmth and sunshine of the Côte d’Azur. The Rolls-Royce Specter continues to take part in local tests ahead of its official launch, some of which took place in the south of France. Rolls-Royce made its new electric cruise travel no less than 625,000 kilometers, mainly at the Miramas airport.

By conducting all these tests for a total of 2.5 million kilometers, Rolls-Royce wants to replicate “more than four centuries of use” of the Spectre. Miramas autodrome is very interesting for the manufacturer, who says he took advantage of sharp turns, cant of curves or even a straight line of almost five kilometers offered by the circuit.

Hidden under a classic camouflage that hides its curves, the Rolls-Royce Specter was also tested in the Provençal countryside, which the brand’s customers really appreciate. This is where the Specter is likely to be driven by its buyers, or by their drivers. According to Rolls-Royce, the car has been given artificial intelligence, which allows it to analyze a lot of information to improve the response of its electric motor.

If Rolls-Royce is still careful not to explain the technical details of this Specter when writing these lines, we know that this elegant electric coupe based on aluminum structure has a suspension called Magic Carpet Ride which, as its name suggests. , should give the feeling of moving on a magic carpet. This system analyzes the road ahead through GPS navigation to reduce road difficulty as much as possible. The car is also the most aerodynamic model ever produced by Rolls-Royce, with a drag coefficient set at 0.25.

The first delivery of the Rolls-Royce Specter should take place in the fourth quarter of 2023, which probably means an official presentation before. The British luxury car maker plans to sell only electric models from 2030.

In short

Rolls-Royce is setting up shop in Provence in the summer of 2022. The British luxury car manufacturer is traveling 625,000 kilometers to the south of France with its first electric model, the Rolls-Royce Spectre. This elegant aerodynamic coupé has been tested mainly on the Miramas autodrome, as well as on the open road. Her body is still hidden behind the veil, given that the official presentation must take place in 2023 before the first delivery in the fourth quarter of the same year.
