1989 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur Saloon
Chassis no. SCAZN02A4JCX23484
It doesn't get much more stately, opulent and luxurious than a Rolls-Royce. For decades, the marque has set a standard that other luxury carmakers have aspired to reach.

A partnership between Charles Stewart Rolls and Frederick Henry Royce, British-based Rolls-Royce Ltd. was officially formed in 1906. From its inception, the company's dedication to excellence was clear; the Silver Ghost exhibited unrivalled attention to detail and remarkable quality, and promptly earned kudos for being "the best car in the world."

In 1981, the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit was launched. Aesthetically, the car was styled to appeal to a younger generation of buyers, with a clean new look that was very much in step with the times. Then in 1989 the long-wheelbase Silver Spur was introduced.

The Silver Spur II arrived in 1990, equipped with a revised facia, a new leather-bound steering wheel, electronic gear selection display and a sophisticated automatic ride controls system.

The Silver Spur shared the basic floor plan and the 6.8 L V8 engine of the Silver Shadow. The Silver Spur used a Girling automatic hydraulic ride height control system along with gas-charged shock absorbers while keeping the high degree of ride quality and self-leveling suspension from the Silver Shadow. Standard was ABS and fuel injection. For the first time alloy wheels were employed on Rolls-Royce motorcars.

The car offered is a fine example, owned from new by an elderly couple and being sold to lighten their estate. Showing 116,000 miles, the car has been regularly serviced and maintained without regard to expense, this is a car for a connoisseur. It runs and drives beautifully.
