The new Rolls-Royce battery-powered “Spectre,” arriving in late 2023, provides a “magic carpet ride” of luxury. In fact, the Spectre’s suspension uses an array of cameras and sensors to “read” the road surface ahead and preemptively adjust the ride on the go. Pricing is expected to be over $400,000, and orders are already coming in.
Certainly one of the most beautiful Brewster bodies on the Phantom I was the Ascot Tourer, of which 28 were made. This was a dashing five-passenger open car with flowing fenders more characteristic of the 1930s models to come.
Rolls-Royce has issued notice: The marque wants “younger and more socially-aware” customers. That’s part of the stated mission for the Dawn, the new drophead coupe (a.k.a. convertible). To emphasize the connected, social aspect, the company introduced the Dawn from Goodwood.
