More About this Item

Description: 1981 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit
Reg. Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Year: 1981
Make: Rolls-Royce
Model: Silver Spirit

Announced in the autumn of 1980 and typically Rolls-Royce in so far as it represented evolution rather than revolution, the Silver Spirit was based on the preceding Silver Shadow II to which it bore a distinct family resemblance. The Shadow’s floorpan was retained and powertrain differences were minimal, the Spirit’s chief advance over its immediate forebear being the heavily revised and improved type of rear suspension that had first appeared on the company’s two-door models. The styling too came in for revision, with a lower waistline, increased glass area and a more modern angular look; rectangular headlights graced the front of a Rolls-Royce for the first time and the oft-changed radiator became wider and squatter. Inside, the Crewe firm’s exemplary standards of equipment and finish were maintained, the most noticeable change being the adoption of separate rear seats and the reinstatement of folding picnic tables.

This clean example comes in a light Green colour and is described as being in good condition. The dark maroon interior makes for a most civilised ride, one which few cars beat in terms of comfort.
