1996 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn (silver spur, silver spirit).
Vin NUmber: SCAZA12CIVCH59046
Registration Number: P100BBH
The Silver Dawn, as you see here, was a late production model of the Silver Spur III – with Rolls-Royce already building the fourth-generation cars – with more options than the regular car. It has covered a scant 53,000 miles since new which will increase slightly during the time we have it in stock.
This Silver Dawn first arrived on the UK's roads in August 1996, making it a 1997 model year car – 1995 and 1996 MY examples only went to the US market. It was actually one of just 79 right-hand drive cars made for that year, out of a total of only 87.
Judging by the stamps in its service book, the Dawn spent more than a decade with its first owner, with services up to 2014 carried out by Essex-based specialists P&A Wood and Gerald Capps, and MOTs to 2008 in the same region. Further stamps indicate a couple of ownership changes since then, before ending up at London's Hanwells, another specialist Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealer.
There's a large paperwork folder for the Dawn covering maintenance and parts bill's dating back across much of the car's 25-year history. That includes older MOT certificates, from before the 2005 start of digitised records. There's also documentation from Hanwells, including a note that the head gasket and radiator were replaced under warranty in March, along with recent suspension work.
In addition there's a fully stamped service record, right from the first 1,000-mile service in October 1996 to the most recent at 52,000 miles in January 2021. That comes along with a vehicle handbook in its original Silver Dawn case, still in as-new condition.
Being based on the long-wheelbase Silver Spur, the Silver Dawn's interior is suitably vast, and based around blue and cream, and chrome and walnut.
There's just four seats in the cabin; with comfort as the ultimate goal, the two rear seat passengers shouldn't ever be forced to squeeze up to make room for a third. That means just the two seats, with a large gap – or a large armrest – between them.
All four are trimmed in cream leather with French Navy piping to match the carpets, and there doesn't appear to be a mark anywhere on them. That cream leather extends around almost all of the car, with both door cards and the dash trim all in the same colour – save for the upper surface of the dash, which is in French Navy again. As with the seats, the plush blue carpets are in great condition too, even on the rear seat foot rests and the lower door cards. What isn't blue or cream is walnut; there's walnut on almost every flat surface, from the doors to the dash, the centre console and even the rear seat console. You'll even find two walnut-surround vanity mirrors on the C-pillars.
Many of the controls feature chrome in some way, particularly the air vents with organ-stop switches. Most of the dials and switches you'll interact with regularly – electric windows, seat controls, climate, and stereo - are more hard-wearing plastic, but all seem to have stood the test of time.
The Dawn also features an absolutely enormous boot, and behind the rear panel there's two drawers which contain original tool kits in new condition.
