Majesty typifies the Seraph. It is, quite simply, the best. If you are looking for the most comfort, the best understated innovation and the sort of performance that will transport its passengers, without fuss or drama, to their destination and arrive in a better mood than when they set off, then Rolls-Royce has always been the answer and when the Silver Seraph appeared in 1998, this model was no exception. Motive force came from the BMW V12 unit, 5.3 litres and more power than you will ever need. Build quality was noted, at the time, as better than ever before with a fully galvanized chassis and Connolly leather with burr walnut throughout the cabin.
This supreme gentleman’s motorcar present in Rolls-Royce silver with black Connolly leather interior, matching carpets and burr walnut picnic trays to the rear. Originally a cancelled order to the Sultan of Brunei, it comes, unsurprisingly, well equipped with a fully comprehensive history and document file, the most recent service showing new brake pads and sensors. Fitted, as you would expect with air-conditioning, a multi-function steering wheel and a discreet cd system in the armrest, this, last of the Crewe-built Rolls-Royces, is in excellent condition throughout and represents incredibly good value.
