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-Royces to be fitted with a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy.
Originally registered in August 1994 this immaculate and original example is finished in the desirable colour combination of Royal Blue paintwork with light grey leather trim piped in blue. The file for this well maintained and low mileage Rolls-Royce shows an impressive 18 services at main agents and specialists and an advisory clear, fresh MoT. Also present is the original owners handbook and a copy of the cars construction and test records from the manufacturer. This Rolls-Royce is sensibly estimated given the cars original cost, history and current condition. Offering enormous amounts of style and luxury this car is one of the most elegant vehicles available today.
