Typiquement Rolls-Royce dans le sens où elles représentaient plus une évolution qu'une révolution, la Silver Spirit et sa version à empattement allongée Silver Spur prenaient pour base leur devancière la Silver Shadow II avec laquelle elles partageaient un indéniable air de famille. Les modifications stylistiques incluaient une ceinture de caisse plus basse, une surface vitrée agrandie et une ligne anguleuse plus moderne, tandis qu'à l'intérieur les exigences en matière d'équipements et de finition de la firme de Crewe restaient de rigueur.

Dernier cri de l'automobile de luxe à l'époque, cette Silver Spur modèle 1988 a été livrée neuve en octobre 1987 via la Franco-Britannique de Levallois-Perret. Elle est vendue avec ses fiches constructeur énumérant ses équipements, poignée de maintien côté passager, table pique-nique en bois vernis, mini-bar et divers autres équipements spécifiques choisis parmi les options disponibles. Le système audio Alpine est un ajout récent de même que le téléphone. La teinte d'origine bleu Windsor était associée à un ciel de toit Everflex bleu nuit et une sellerie Parchemin, tout comme aujourd'hui. Cette Rolls-Royce a été l'objet des soins attentifs de la fameuse carrosserie Lecoq, incluant une peinture (1995/1996), le remplacement de la partie médiane des pare-chocs, tandis que les courroies de servitudes du moteur étaient changées (factures au dossier). Seulement 130 km environ ont été parcourus depuis, le compteur affichant 117 823 km. La voiture est accompagnée des papiers susmentionnés et de sa carte grise française.

1987 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur Saloon

Typically Rolls-Royce in so far as they represented evolution rather than revolution, the Silver Spirit and long-wheelbase Silver Spur were based on the preceding Silver Shadow II to which they bore a distinct family resemblance. Styling revisions included a lower waistline, increased glass area and a more modern angular look, while inside, the Crewe firm's exemplary standards of equipment and finish were maintained.

The last word in motoring luxury in its day, this 1988-model Silver Spur was delivered new in October 1987 via Franco Britannic Automobiles, Levallois-Perret, France. It comes with copies of the factory build sheets listing a passenger-side grab handle, wood veneer picnic tables, a cocktail cabinet and various special interior trim features among the optional extras chosen. The Alpine radio is a subsequent update, as is the telephone. The original colour scheme was Windsor Blue with Dark Blue Everflex roof and Parchment hide interior, the same as it is today. This Rolls-Royce has benefited from the attentions of the celebrated Carrosserie Lecoq, including refurbishment of the paintwork (1995/1996) and replacing the bumpers' central metal trim strips, while in 2012 the engine's ancillary drive belts were changed (bills on file). Only some 130-or-so kilometres have been travelled since then, the current odometer reading being 117,823km. The car is offered with the aforementioned paperwork and French Carte Grise.
