Triple MSRP Rolls-Royce Spectre Fetches Highest Price

Charity Auction Raises $33 Million in One Night: Get Involved!

Over the weekend, a remarkable Rolls-Royce Spectre, the debut of the renowned British brand’s electric lineup, was sold at an auction for an astounding three times its original price. The winning offer reached an impressive $1.4 million and will be donated to the Naples Children Education Foundation in Florida. The prestigious Naples Winter Wine Festival (NWWF) served as the venue for this charity event.

At a staggering price of approximately $420,000, the Spectre boasts one of the largest MSRPs among all electric vehicles currently available. This means that the lucky purchaser could have purchased three standard Spectres for the same amount.

According to reports, the unidentified victor is a passionate individual who takes great interest in collecting cars and participating in races. “Spectre is a truly remarkable vehicle, [and] I am grateful to have the opportunity to call it my own. However, the true privilege lies in our joint efforts to support children,” he stated.

The 2024 Spectre, which was recently sold at auction, boasts a sleek Arctic White and Tempest Grey two-tone façade adorned with a Tailored Purple coachline. Its latest feature includes a set of 23-inch wing spoke wheels, partially polished to perfection. Stepping inside, one will find the stunning Grace White leather seats, complemented by tasteful pops of Tailored Purple and Black. This Rolls-Royce novelty boasts another first, as the Starlight headliner extends onto the doors, illuminating over 6,000 individual fiber optic strands.

Underneath its exterior, the electric engines propel an impressive 577 horsepower and a whopping 664 lb-ft of torque to every wheel, while the battery unit boasts an estimated EPA range of 266 miles.

The newly sold Spectre is among the initial cases to reach the United States, with the original model arriving at the end of last year.

The Spectre has become the fifth Rolls-Royce to be put up for auction within the last two decades, with all proceeds going towards supporting the children of Collier County. A grand total of $5.68 million has been raised through these auctions. The initial one took place in 2007 when the first ever Phantom Drophead Coupe was sold for a staggering $2 million in the United States. That was followed by the sale of a Wraith in 2014, which garnered $750,000 in bids. In 2015, the first Dawn in North America also went for the same amount. Most recently, in 2018, the very first commission for a Phantom VII was auctioned off for a winning bid of $780,000.

The impressive sum of $33 million was the total value of bids received at the NWWF, with one standout item being the Spectre which fetched a staggering $1.4 million. Among the successful lots was the 2024 Aston Martin DB12 Volante, sold at a respectable price of $650,000. It is worth noting that the inaugural DB12 went for a significant amount of $1.6 million.
