The long-wheelbase version was called the Silver Spur. Four inches longer than the Spirit, it is identifiable by its extended rear windows and Everflex roof. A special run of 25 Silver Spur Centenary models was produced in 1985, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the motor car in Great Britain and the production of the 100,000th Rolls-Royce.
Finished in silver with a contrasting black interior, this fine example was supplied new on February 11th 1982 and boasts a full service history. The car was maintained with supplying dealer Jack Barclay for the first ten years, subsequently with specialists and more recently with a local garage. In total, the car has had three previous owners, is showing 67,063 miles and is accompanied by an MoT test certificate valid until April 2017 with the vendor describing the car as being eight out of ten throughout. Here is a rare opportunity to purchase what was the top of the range Rolls-Royce of the 1980s and offering remarkable value for money at no reserve.
