Our all-electric #RollsRoyce #Spectre concludes winter testing, 55km from the Arctic Circle.
Temperatures at the #Bespoke facility, located in Arjeplog, Sweden, drop to -26 degrees centigrade and are further cooled to -40 degrees centigrade; extreme conditions to ensure that each system is operational and functions in a cold weather environment. This test is combined with the beginnings of the refinement process – the first ‘lessons’ in a finishing school that will form the foundations of a motor car worthy of our marque.
By driving on low traction surfaces such as snow and ice and wilfully destabilising Spectre, the engineers can create dynamic circumstances at low speeds that would ordinarily occur at high speeds. This allows engineers to finesse the cold-weather vehicle performance in areas such as handling, controllability, stability, predictability and the ‘waftability’ that defines the Rolls-Royce experience.
Following more than half a million kilometres of testing, 25% of this process has now been completed.
