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.
Supplied new in Jersey in 1984, this Rolls-Royce spent its first 18 years on the channel island before coming home to the mainland. The limited use available in Jersey will be the reason for the low mileage for the age of this car. This, and a good service history, is reflected in the stunning condition the car presents in today. The engine bay is immaculate and the car sports four new tyres, an upgraded stereo, stacking CD player, a stainless stell exhaust system, all tools and two sets of keys. The extremely rare Richmond Blue bodywork contrasts well with the magnolia trim piped in blue. The records show that this Spirit has two previous owners. One of whom purchased the car through world famous and well-respected franchised dealer P & A Woods, in fact some of the 15 dealer stamps in the service book are by the well-known dealer from Dunmow, Essex. Supplied to auction with a V5c registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate.
