Twin 2-door models of Rolls-Royce, the Dawn and Wraith have been axed
The Rolls-Royce Dawn and Wraith are no longer available to order as the British luxury carmaker prepares for the launch of the pure-electric Spectre in the last quarter of 2023.
CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös revealed the above recently and added that the 2-door convertible and coupe will not be directly replaced.
While the firm will continue to focus on the Spectre, the production run of both the Dawn and Spectre is not set to end until early 2023 due to a strong backlog of orders.
The Spectre, which was first shown in prototype form last September, would, in effect, become the Wraith’s replacement in the company’s line-up when it arrives next year.
Since the Spectre will be its first-ever electric vehicle (EV), Rolls has said the car’s development mules will cover 25 lakh km and that the 2-door coupé would undergo a simulation of more than 400 years of use.
The EV will be underpinned by the British luxury car brand’s aluminium spaceframe architecture and has been spied multiple times already. For now, it is clear that the Spectre will feature a split headlight setup, narrow greenhouse, and a long, sloping roofline.
Details like the EV’s battery capacity and motor(s’) output figures are unknown at present. But, it should come with plentiful range and support fast-charging for the battery to be recharged soon.
