Footnotes

  • 'Some car... Rolls-Royce may now have strong rivals, but none can match the majesty of its spirit.' - Sporting Cars.
    Based on the immensely successful Silver Shadow II, the Silver Spirit and its long-wheelbase counterpart, the Silver Spur, were announced in the autumn of 1980. While the power unit remained Rolls-Royce's familiar and dependable 6,750cc V8, significant improvements were made to the newcomers' self-levelling rear suspension and the styling too came in for revision, with a lower waist line, increased glass area and a more modern angular look. Rectangular headlights graced the front of a Rolls-Royce for the first time and the oft-changed radiator became both wider and squatter. Inside, the Crewe firm's exemplary standards of equipment and finish were maintained, the most noticeable change being the adoption of separate rear seats and the reinstatement of folding picnic tables. Launched in the autumn of 1989, by which time fuel injection had been adopted for all markets, the Silver Spirit II looked virtually identical to its immediate predecessor (15-spoke alloy wheels excepted) but featured a number of detail alterations to the dashboard, centre console and controls as well as the more significant incorporation of Rolls-Royce's own adaptive damping system.

    Originally registered '2000 TU', this Silver Spirit II was first owned by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd and used as their press demonstrator, featuring in many brochures, press reports, etc. It was supplied new with Everflex roof, rear quarter badges and lambs' wool over-rugs. Finished in the most desirable exterior/interior colour combination of Royal Blue with blue-piped parchment hide upholstery and blue carpets, the car had covered 73,892 miles from new when it was purchased by the current vendor at Bonhams' Olympia sale in December 2003 (Lot 1072). Since acquisition it has covered only some 8,000 miles and been maintained fastidiously, items receiving attention include the suspension bushes and engine management ECU while the radio and wheels have been replaced (the latter with the original, optional type). Described by the vendor as in generally good condition, this smartly presented Silver Spirit is offered with full service history, all books and tools, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5C document.
