Footnotes

  • ‘Unlike the Shadow which, while cosseting you in luxury and comfort, required a good deal of concentration to drive quickly, the Spirit is endowed with enough feel and response, matched with stability, to make driving on all types of road a real pleasure,’ - Motor.
    Announced in the autumn of 1980 and typically Rolls-Royce in so far as it represented evolution rather than revolution, the Silver Spirit was based on the preceding Silver Shadow II to which it bore a distinct family resemblance. The Shadow’s floorpan was retained and powertrain differences were minimal, the Spirit’s chief advance over its immediate forebear being the heavily revised and improved type of rear suspension that had first appeared on the company’s two-door models. The styling too came in for revision, with a lower waistline, 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 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 re-instatement of folding picnic tables.
    This Silver Spirit was supplied new to a company in Singapore where it was used for executive transport until its return to England in 2004. The vendor is the only private UK owner. There is no documented service history with it but the vehicle is in generally good condition, the coachwork being very good and the original interior excellent, including the over-rugs. A believed genuine total of 53,000-or-so kilometres is displayed on the odometer. Ready to be enjoyed by a new owner, the car is offered with a quantity of expired MoT certificates, Swansea V5C document, current road fund licence and MoT to October 2009.
