Description

- 1 of just 211 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit III Saloons made

- Two previous keepers and 43,400 miles from new

- Part of the Old Hall collection since January 2006

A square-cut, broad-shouldered design, the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit was styled in-house by Fritz Feller. Introduced at the 1980 Paris Motor Show, it enjoyed notably greater road presence than its Silver Shadow predecessor as well as a thirty percent larger glass area. Thus, while it looked suitably imposing from the outside, internally it proved pleasantly airy. Although, based on the Shadow floorpan, the Spirit offered considerable improvements in both ride and handling. By combining copious amounts of sound deadening with the finest quality upholstery, Crewe's engineers kept intrusion from the 6.75 litre V8 engine to a muted hush. Unveiled at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Spirit II featured a sophisticated automatic ride control system that adapted to changing road conditions almost instantaneously, ergonomically enhanced `new look' dashboard, four-speed automatic transmission and standard-fit alloy wheels. Arriving in 1993, the Spirit III boasted more power thanks to redesigned cylinder heads and manifolding, airbags for both driver and front seat passenger and revised rear lights. Decidedly short lived, just 211 Spirit III saloons are thought to have been made.

Finished in Racing Green with Spruce-piped Sandstone leather upholstery, chassis SCAZS02C4RCH54811 was supplied new via Henlys of Chester to John Fallows Esq. of Maghull, Liverpool. Purchased by Ron Pearlman Esq. of Structadene Ltd, London from dealer Ron Stratton of Knutsford on 17th July 1997 for £55,750, the Rolls-Royce showed some 22,500 miles to its odometer at the time. Some twenty years later the same instrument now displays some 43,400 miles. Forming part of the Old Hall collection since January 2006, the Silver Spirit III has been to marque specialist Prestige Services of Leeds for general maintenance and fettling. A three owner, low mileage example of one of the rarest Silver Spirit variants, this highly presentable luxury saloon is offered for sale with history file and MOT certificate valid until October 2018.
