Description

Launched in 1980, the Silver Spirit relied heavily upon the underpinnings of its Shadow predecessor prompting Autocar to comment that its raison d'etre was more to do with "maintaining traditional standards rather than making a spectacular advance". Nevertheless, the Spirit was credited with handling and roadholding that were "the best yet from Rolls-Royce". Its all-round independent coil-and-wishbone suspension featured automatic, olio-pneumatic ride height control to the rear and adjustable dampers at the front. Powered by the ubiquitous 6750cc, OHV V8 engine mated to three-speed automatic transmission, it was reputedly capable of 120mph and benefited from power assistance to both its disc brakes and steering rack. Importantly, this evolutionary design remained faithful to the luxurious ambience of its predecessors using only the finest quality hides, carpets, chrome fittings and wood veneers for its matchless interior.

Finished in Cream with Red leather interior, 'XEW951X' registers just 52,000 miles and has had 6 previous keepers. Understood be have recently been removed from dry storage its offered with its original service book and a collection of old MOT certificates plus Tax discs. Rolls-Royce's stately Silver Spirit model represents astonishing value in today's market.
