Technical specifications, photos and description:
Before David Plastow left his senior position at Rolls-Royce
following the take-over of Vickers plc. he had been responsible for
a series of models. amongst which was the Rolls-Royce Silver
Spirit. It was unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The coachwork of the Silver Spirit had
been designed at the in-house styling centre by Fritz Feller and
gave the impression of being stretched in comparison with the
bodies of the previous generation. The new models had slightly
grown in length and width; height had been cut a little although
the styling was more modern than that of its predecessor. The
interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and
sumptuous leather. The Silver Spirit was similar mechanically to
the Silver Shadow. benefitting from the superb Rolls-Royce 6750cc. br/>V8. and also sharing many mechanical characteristics of the model
it replaced. It was also the first Rolls-Royce to be fitted with a
retractable Spirit of Ecstasy. The long-wheelbase version was
called the Silver Spur. four inches longer than the Spirit.
Originally supplied by Jack Barclay in London on 14th November
1985. this Silver Spur is finished in Masons Black with parchment
interior and a black everflex roof. The car is also fitted with
rear quarter badges and picnic tables to the rear.
The original service books are supplied with C431 CTR showing 13
service stamps albeit latterly from a specialist. Supplied with a
V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid
until 29th September 2016 (no advisories). this Rolls-Royce Silver
Spur is very attractively estimated.
