THE SILVER SERAPH

After an 18-year production run, Rolls-Royce replaced its Silver Spur with an all-new model, the Silver Seraph. Designed during Vickers' ownership of Rolls-Royce, but with heavy influence from BMW, the Silver Seraph was a massive leap forward for the brand. Powered by BMW's 5.4-liter V-12, the first Rolls to be powered by a twelve pot since the Phantom III, the Silver Seraph was also 65% stiffer than its predecessor. Debuting in 1998, along with its badge engineered Bentley twin the Arnage, the Silver Seraph would be the last Rolls built in Crewe and remain in production for only four years as the Rolls brand would eventually fall under the wing of BMW and Bentley under VW.

With a base price of over $220,000, it was one of the most expensive cars you could buy off the lot. In total, only 1,570 Silver Seraphs were produced before the new Phantom was released.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Delivered new to a Massachusettsan in the winter of 1998, the Rolls-Royce on offer was finished in a subtle grey-sliver paint scheme with a matching double grey interior. This individual would hold onto the car for 6 years and rolled 14,000 miles on dash. In 2005 the vehicle received its second owner and in 2011 a third. Today, the seller reports that the service is all up to date and the car is in good order with roughly 40,000 miles now appearing on the odometer. 3 years ago, $10,000 was spent replacing the wood in the interior, giving the car a very fresh look indeed. With a base price of $220,000, the Silver Seraph was finest and most luxurious vehicle on the road when it came out. The old-world luxury one experienced when ensconced in the buttery soft leather seats is just as enjoyable today as it was when new. And when you can enjoy a Rolls for the price of a new Chevy, it is hard to reason why one wouldn't jump at the opportunity.
