Rolls-Royce has a revised version of Spirit of Ecstasy for the Spectre. Rolls-Royce’s bonnet ornament sculpture is a sliver lady. The revised bonnet ornament sculpture is 0.7 inches shorter, and the company readjusted its flowing robe and legs.
The legs are slightly bent, with one positioned ahead of the other. Rolls-Royce claims that these slight adjustments made the ornament more aerodynamic, which plays a role in the drag coefficient of 0.26cd.
