Technical specifications, photos and description:
When the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was released to the public in
October 1965 the development departments were showing the result of
work carried out over a period of some ten years. The new series
was characterised by surprisingly modern features and with their
development. Rolls-Royce broke new ground and away from many sacred
design principles. The new models were technically striking in
three ways: a monocoque chassis was used. all wheels were sprung
independently and four wheel disc brakes now ensured stopping power
of the kind expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet. the V8
engine which had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series. was
employed. In February 1977 the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was
introduced. Outwardly the models were identifiable by bumpers with
rubber inserts and edges made from polyurethane. The most notable
changes mechanically were to the rack and pinion steering and
modifications to the front suspension which markedly improved
