The automatic decoupling of the anti-roll bars allows each wheel to act independently, preventing the rocking motion that occurs when one side of the vehicle hits an undulation in the road. Once a corner is confirmed as imminent by the satellite navigation and Flagbearer systems, the anti-roll bars are recoupled. Rolls-Royce has also programmed the dampers to stiffen for cornering and the four-wheel-steering system to prepare for activation.
While cornering, more than 18 sensors are monitored. Rolls-Royce claims that steering, braking, power delivery, and suspension parameters are automatically adjusted so that the vehicle remains stable without compromising the industry-leading ride quality. Clever tech is complemented by clever engineering, with Rolls-Royce confirming a 30-percent improvement in rigidity over all of the British brand's current motor cars.
How was that possible? Well, the lithium-ion battery features an extremely rigid structure that’s integrated into the aluminum spaceframe. Initially advertised as having a drag coefficient of Cd 0.26, the Spectre has been further improved to Cd 0.25, which is unprecedented in this car segment.
Customer deliveries of the Rolls-Royce Spectre “electric super coupe” will begin in the fourth quarter of 2023 if everything goes according to plan.
