Lot 150 - 1998 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur IV
|Odometer reading||37,165 miles|
|Estimate||£24,000 - £28,000|
Unveiled in June 1995 for the 1996 model year, the fourth and final series of the Silver Spirit and Silver Spur were heavily revised and improved by Rolls-Royce. However, the new cars were simply known as New Silver Spirit and New Silver Spur as the IV suffix was a symbol of death in some Far Eastern regions. As before, the Silver Spur was the long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit gaining an additional four inches extra in the rear compartment. Externally the cars sported new integrated wrap-around bumpers and both the front grille and Spirit of Ecstasy were reduced in size, all of which significantly modernised the design. In addition, the spare wheel was relocated inside the boot under the carpeted floor rather than underneath the car, as on previous models, which created a crisper style at the rear and a cleaner wheel-changing process. New distinctive 16” wheels were designed and the front door quarterlights were deleted. The interior was also extensively remodelled with a new dashboard and centre console design and electrically adjustable steering wheel which automatically raised and lowered to ease entry and exit. The revised seats received vertical fluting and the new seat design also allowed an extra inch of headroom.
This fabulous and luxurious Rolls-Royce, imported from Japan, is presented in Emerald Black which looks stunning and is complemented by its cream leather interior. The sumptuous interior is in very good condition throughout, with electrically operated heated front and rear seats, premium sound system with USB connection, climate control, cruise control, picnic tables to the rear and its leather interior even extends to the headlining. The car will come with a fresh MoT test certificate and comes with its original manuals in a wallet. A truly luxurious and opulent tourer which has only covered a mere 37,165 miles from new.
