Footnotes

  • '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.

    This Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was purchased by the current vendor at Bonhams' Harrogate sale in November 2008 (Lot 666) prior to which it had received a new exhaust system, brakes and fuel pump together with a reconditioned steering rack. All MoT certificates and receipts relating to work carried out since 2003 come with the car, plus some earlier bills and expired MoTs. Finished in gold/brown, 'HWR 110T' is presented in generally good condition, with very good cream leather interior, and is offered with the aforementioned documentation, Swansea V5 and a certificate recording the odometer's replacement at 30,000 miles (the current reading is approximately 70,000 miles). Kept in museum storage since acquisition, the car will require re-commissioning before further use.

    No Reserve.
