The Silver Spirit was introduced by Rolls-Royce in 1980 as the first of a new generation of company models. It formed the basis for the Flying Spur, Silver Dawn, Touring Limousine, Park Ward, and Bentley Mulsanne/Eight series.
The Spirit/Spur carried over the basic design of the Silver Shadow, its 6.75 L L410 V8 engine and GM sourced THM 400 3-speed automatic gearbox, and similarly styled unitary bodywork manufactured at Pressed Steel. The Spur/Spirit continued the Silver Shadow’s emphasis on ride quality by utilising its hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension, modified with Girling automatic hydraulic ride height control system and gas-charged shock absorbers
The Silver Spur was a long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit, and the was the first car to feature the retractable Spirit of Ecstasy. Three incarnations of both cars appeared between 1980 and 1997; the Mark I (1980-1989), the Mark II (1989-1993) and the Mark III (1993-1996).
First registered on 1st June 1990, this later Spirit II model has covered a mere 66,000 kilometres from new. Finished Acrylic White with a matching cream leather interior, this regularly maintained example was serviced within the last 1000 kilometres or so and is ready to be pressed into further service. The Spur model offers both exceptional quality and value in the market, so we are sure this stunning example will attract a lot of interest.
