Description

Rolls-Royce introduced the Silver Spirit model in 1980 as the first of a new generation of cars, although it was largely an update of the earlier Silver Shadow – using the same 6.75 litre V8 engine, 3-speed automatic gearbox and hydro-pneumatic self-levelling suspension.

Mechanically, the Silver Spirit was upgraded continuously throughout its 18-year lifespan, starting with the fitment of fuel injection, followed by an automatic hydraulic ride height control system and a 4-speed automatic gearbox. Visually, the car appeared little changed throughout production, although the last models – as in this case – received 16-inch wheels and integrated bumpers front and rear.

This particular vehicle has spent almost all its life in the island of Guernsey, having been registered there in February 1996. The fastidious owner had the car serviced and maintained by Rolls Royce specialists Hillier Hill, of Olney, Bucks. In 2014, the car was acquired by the Guernsey government for use by the Lieutenant Governor (the Monarch’s representative in the island). As such, the car was chauffeur driven and only covered a limited additional mileage. It was serviced by Le Riche Auto in Jersey on a regular basis.

The Silver Spirit is in excellent mechanical condition and has covered a relatively lowly 41,000 miles – confirmed by the service and maintenance records held on file. This car has a full service history and has been maintained regardless of cost. The brake system was rebuilt in 2021 and rear suspension spheres replaced just this year to keep the vehicle in tip-top driving condition. This car has a full service history and has been maintained regardless of costs.

As might be anticipated for a chauffeur-driven limousine, the bodywork has been regularly valeted and kept in a very good condition. The sumptuous interior is finished in Magnolia leather with burgundy carpets and is in a first-class condition.

There’s no denying that every Rolls Royce has a certain road presence and this very smart, low mileage and well maintained vehicle has it in spades! In an excellent condition, this car is ready for a new owner to drive and cherish.

The car is Guernsey registered, although UK duty has been paid. It is currently located in Dorset and viewing can be arranged by appointment.
