Footnotes

  • This unique Silver Spectre Shooting Brake has been styled by the Niels van Roij Design studio, which also supervised the construction process. Based in Utrecht, Holland, Niels van Roij Design has become renowned for its stunning conversions on upmarket chassis, including its Ferrari 'Breadvan' homage and Range Rover Adventum coupé. The Silver Spectre project was conceived and overseen by the owner in collaboration with Niels van Roij Design. According to its creator: "The elongated lines signal masterful craftsmanship and exquisite style. A manifestation of Grand Touring in its purest form."

    Carried out by Carat Duchatelet in 2018-2020, this conversion is based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith Gran Turismo coupé, one of the world's most exclusive and desirable cars from a company unsurpassed in motoring excellence. Intended to be one of seven, this is and will remain the sole example built. Usually such conversions end up adding considerable weight, but the use of carbon fibre for the Spectre's lengthy roof has meant that this has been kept to a minimum. Also noteworthy is the hand-made 'infinity starlight' headliner, a bold statement and showcase of this car's bespoke qualities. Claimed to be a world's first, it is a celestial nightscape of fibre-optic strands; the stars fade out towards the rear, giving the impression of an endless starlit sky.

    Produced mid-2015, the Wraith was first registered to Rolls-Royce in the UK in January 2016 (it is assumed it was kept as a show car and/or demonstrator) and was later purchased by the current vendor. The car was last serviced in 2018 at 15,147 kilometres by Rolls-Royce München immediately prior to the start of the conversion process, which took some 18 months and 2,500 man-hours to complete.
    When launched in 2013 the Wraith had a base price of around €215,750, though owners availing themselves of the lengthy options list - and most did - ended up paying considerably more. The cost of the conversion alone was a staggering €300,000, making the Spectre one of the costliest cars ever made; small wonder then that only one was built. Only some 200 kilometres have been driven since the conversion's completion and this stunning Silver Spectre shooting brake is presented in excellent condition throughout. Covid restrictions have made it impossible to exhibit the Silver Spectre until now, and Bonhams' Monaco sale will be its first official public outing.

    Offered with its (copy) factory build sheet, a copy of the old UK V5C Registration Certificate in the name of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and current Dutch registration papers (only for Dutch buyers the BPM is due), this one-off Silver Spectre Shooting Brake has covered only 17,800 kilometres from new and is worthy of the closest inspection. A unique 'must have' for the Rolls-Royce connoisseur.

    Please be advised that this lot will be subject to VAT.
