And if doors opening against the course with a streamlined silhouette cannot be called such, then, for example, headlights that are narrowed to the maximum are quite. In addition, Specter’s signature grille does not drop to the lower edge of the bumper, as on other Rolls-Royces, and is illuminated by two dozen LEDs.

The electric coupe is based on the same “Architecture of Luxury” on which the modern Rolls-Royce Phantom, Ghost and Cullinan are built: this is a spatial frame with aluminum body panels, into which not only traditional, but also electric power plants.

In the case of Specter, we will, of course, talk about the latter. And although the manufacturer has not yet deliberately disclosed the exact characteristics, the preliminary ones are already known: the coupe electric motors will together develop up to 585 hp. and 900 Nm of torque, allowing you to accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. The capacity of the batteries is not specified, but it is stated that the estimated range will be 520 km.

Rolls-Royce’s first electric vehicle has a brand-record drag coefficient of 0.25. The wheelbase is over 3.2 meters.

Especially for the Specter, Rolls-Royce engineers have thoroughly redesigned the suspension with the Flagbearer system, which automatically follows the terrain and changes its settings in advance, thereby achieving a reference ride even on less than ideal road surfaces.

The interior of the coupe is made in strict accordance with the traditional style of Rolls-Royce, but even in it there was a place for exceptions. The first is a separate display for the front passenger, and the second is the branded “starry sky”, which the Specter will have not only on the ceiling, but also on the door cards (4796 diodes will be added there).

The cost has already been announced: for the first electric Rolls-Royce they will ask $413,500. The start of sales of the model is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2023, and after another seven years (that is, by the end of 2030), Rolls-Royce plans to completely abandon traditional internal combustion engines and transfer all its models to electric traction.

The Chinese are preparing their own fleet to deliver cars

According to Bloomberg, China’s two largest automakers are keen to establish a stable supply of their cars around the world, for which they decided to buy their own cargo ships.

BYD ordered at least six ships in October, each carrying 7,700 vehicles, for $710 million. The state company SAIC Motor has announced a tender for seven new vessels, each of which can accommodate 8,900 vehicles.

China recently overtook Germany to become the world’s second largest car exporter, shipping nearly 2.6 million vehicles overseas in the first 10 months of 2022, surpassing 2021 volumes. Even the unexpected drop in demand for Chinese goods in October didn’t stop the trend, with car exports up 60% year-over-year to 352,000 units over the period. As a result, the turnover amounted to a record 7.1 billion dollars.

China exported more than 852,000 electric vehicles in the first 10 months of this year, up from almost zero a few years ago. More than a fifth came from Tesla electric vehicles produced at a gigafactory in Shanghai.

The shortage of ships is further stretching the car supply chain. Daily rates for ships that can carry up to 6,500 vehicles have risen to about $100,000 per day as of October, more than ten times the 2020 level and the highest on record (from 2000 to according to Clarksons).

Under such conditions, some ships that are nearly 30 years old are still in service rather than being retired, increasing the risk of accidents.
