Architecture of Luxury
Every Spectre is a singular creation built on the brand’s proprietary aluminum chassis, referred to as the Architecture of Luxury. This new architecture underpins the entire Rolls-Royce lineup — Ghost, Phantom, and Cullinan — and was designed to work with both gas and electric powertrains. (A strong indication that electric versions of these models will be forthcoming, given the company’s stated goal.) The battery is built into the frame, which lowers the vehicle’s center of gravity — as well as the floor of the cabin — for more spacious surroundings. With the battery built into the chassis, torsional rigidity is increased a full 30 percent more than any other Rolls-Royce for improved handling. The 1,500-pound battery also provides sound deadening, which contributes to one of the quietest cabins ever experienced.
