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.
    Two-door coachwork by the revitalised firm of Hooper & Co is the distinguishing feature of this well presented Silver Spirit, and there can be few who would deny that this subtle reworking of the standard four-door bodyshell (there was never an official two-door Silver Spirit) is outstandingly successful. 'F745 KGP' has covered circa 44,600 miles from new and comes with stamped service booklet showing regular servicing, mainly with Jack Barclay. The most recent service was carried out in 2009 by Daniel Motors of Brixton, South London. Described by the lady vendor as in generally good condition, this rare coachbuilt modern Rolls-Royce is offered with the aforementioned service history, MoT to 29th June 2011 and Swansea V5 registration document.
