When new delivered in the USA and according to tradition would have been intended for Sylvester Stallone. Imported for Lou Depryck a well-known Belgian artist. Then sold by Oldtimerfarm to the current collector who took very good care of it. A nice maintenance file comes with the car.
All critical systems in this car were overhauled and, where necessary, repaired or fitted with new parts. For example, the pumps of the high-pressure hydraulic system were overhauled or replaced and the air conditioning system was thoroughly cleaned and repaired. The calipers were also replaced. The ignition was completely renewed and equipped with a modern coil and pertronix conversion. The automatic gearbox (3 courses) was replaced 10 years ago and works fine.
For the past 10 years, the engine oil has been changed every year to minimize wear and tear. The interior is also very nicely preserved and the wood inlay is completely new. The car is technically in order and drives fine.
In 1980 Rolls Royce (RR) introduced a new and more modern design for their cars as a successor to the legendary silver shadow models. The silver spirit was introduced in October 1980.
This Rolls Royce silver spur is derived from the silver spirit. The extended wheelbase (LWB) of the spur (3,161m) provides extra space for the rear passengers. This car was manufactured in Crewe for the American market and therefore has an 8 cylinder engine with Bosch injection system and an emission control system which makes it relatively economical compared to the versions with carburetor that were still made for the European market at that time. The engine is the classic 6,750 liter RR V8 that was developed by RR
