According to the CEO of the British brand, they are surprised by the number of interested customers and this could be a problem.
A few days ago, we told you that never before, in 118 years of history, Rolls-Royce had sold so many. A real record for the British manufacturer, which this year 2023 could again be beaten thanks to the arrival of the Spectre.
And it is that despite its high price (piece at 400 thousand euros), the first electric under the Spirit of Ecstasy has aroused the interest of so many buyers that its production will soon have to be increased or else many orders will have to wait for a indefinite period.
Although the first deliveries will not take place before the last third of the year 2023, at Goodwood we are already starting to think about a reorganization of production, in order to be able to receive more orders. Especially since the production time of each unit is not fixed, it varies according to customer requests.
The company’s own CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, was tasked with communicating the unpredictable situation. “Order intake for the Specter is much better than we expected. We have a few months left to start production, but if this trend continues, I’m pretty sure we’ll have to adjust our plans.”
Some of these firm orders have delivery dates of over a year, a timeframe that few impatient customers are willing to wait. So that the weather does not continue to grow, the possibility of increasing production is more than real, although now they will have to see how they do it since the other products of the house, including the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, also have a long list of requests.
Self-proclaimed by the brand as its “most perfect” car, the Rolls-Royce Specter is 5.45 meters long and weighs 2,975 kilos. Its dual powertrain, meanwhile, develops 585 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. Its weight of nearly three tonnes can reach 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and its estimated electric range is 520 kilometers .
