The Silver Spur

When Rolls-Royce replaced the Silver Shadow with the Silver Spirit in 1980, it brought traditional Rolls virtues with the values of the time as stricter safety and emissions requirements were quite different from when the Silver Shadow debuted in 1965. Design- and styling-wise, the Silver Spirit maintained a stiff upper lip but paid a visit to Carnaby Street with lower and wider coachwork and larger glass area. Although the Shadow's floor pan was used, driving dynamics improved tenfold due to new gas shock absorbers and automatic height control. Inside you would find the usual sumptuous Rolls interior with the best leathers and wood artfully hewn by the finest craftsmen. As before, the 6.75-liter V-8 with twin SU carburetors (fuel injection for US and Japan exports until 1988, when it was made standard across the board) gave "adequate" power for all driving conditions. For those wanting a vehicle with a longer wheelbase, if not an auto to be driven by a chauffeur, the Silver Spur took over where the former Silver Wraith left off.

The Motorcar Offered

This Magnolia-hued 1988 Silver Spur is one of 6,238 long-wheelbase Silver Spurs built between 1980-89. The tan Everflex top contrasts nicely and gives the Silver Spur a more stately appearance. The hand-stitched tan interior is complemented by special-order Birds-eye Maple. As would be expected for a Rolls-Royce, this wonderful example has been garage-kept and properly maintained with excellent mechanicals.
