'To most people, a Rolls-Royce is the ultimate status symbol: you can aspire to nothing higher. Until you drive or even ride in one it is difficult to appreciate how much lies behind the name. There are quieter cars, there are quicker cars but none cossets its occupants in quite the same manner, none insulates them from the outside world quite so effectively, to the point where rush-hour traffic jams, inclement weather and the other irritations of day-to-day living no longer seem to matter. On top of all this is the immeasurable pleasure offered by sheer unadulterated luxury of the sort that stems only from the use of the very best materials by the very best craftsmen. That is what the Silver Shadow is about.' - Motor.
Thirty-plus years after the last example left the Crewe factory, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow remains an imposing and highly desirable motor car. Incorporating all the 'Series II' improvements, the most significant of which were power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and split-level air conditioning, the example offered here has had only three owners from new and currently displays a total of 110,000 miles on the odometer. Finished in Mason's Black over white with black leather interior, the car is described as in generally good condition and offered with current road fund licence, MoT to February 2014, Swansea V5 document and bills totalling some £30,000.
