|Odometer reading||61,000 miles|
|Estimate||£4,500 - £6,000|
|Result||Sold - £6,720|
The Silver Spirit was unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. Direct comparison, however, showed only small differences. The new models had slightly grown in length and width; height had been cut a little, although the styling was more modern than that of its predecessor. The interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and sumptuous leather. The Silver Spirit was similar mechanically to the Silver Shadow, benefiting from the superb Rolls-Royce 6,750cc, V8 and sharing many mechanical characteristics of the model it replaced. The instruments were supplemented by digital units which gave such information as the time, elapsed driving time and external temperature and were the first Rolls-Royce to be fitted with a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy.
Registered on 1st June 1984, this Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit is finished in Claret with tan leather interior. The car is described as being in good all-round condition and is sold with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate. Is there better value for money than a Silver Spirit in terms of grace, style and presence?
