The British firm has so far covered 2 million kilometers with the prototypes and pre-series units. According to those responsible for the project, this is the most demanding test program in the company’s history since a total of 2.5 million kilometers will be traveled in a simulation of more than 400 years of use for a Rolls-Royce.

For the remaining half a million kilometers, the brand has decided to show the vehicle naked in some of the most exclusive regions of the planet. intending to attract new customers. Although production will begin in March and the first deliveries will not take place until the fourth quarter, the fact is that the Specter is already a success.

Like any good Rolls-Royce, the Specter boasts superlative refinement. Among other things, it equips the Planar suspension system, capable of disengaging the stabilizer bars to avoid swaying in a straight line, as well as adaptive damping. It also has a steering rear wheel system, and the turning radius is 12.7 meters.
