  • Presenting rather well in Peacock Blue with a classic Rolls-Royce cream interior
  • 30,544 miles indicated which could well be accurate, however, we have no paperwork
  • We understand that it does drive but needs a battery
  • This is a lovely straight old Spirit that looks to have been cared for on offer at No Reserve

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

There were no real surprises in Autumn 1980 when Rolls-Royce unveiled their new Silver Spirit and its long wheelbase counterpart, the Silver Spur, alongside Bentley's sporting Mulsanne range. The well-proven 6,750cc V8 engine previously used in the Silver Shadow was retained and now had slightly more power (228bhp and a mighty 330lb/ft) but the styling was much more modern and angular, being longer, wider and lower and with 30 per cent more glass area. Road-holding was reported to be "the best yet from Rolls-Royce" thanks to significant improvements to the self-levelling rear suspension and the new car could waft up to 60mph in just 10 seconds with a top speed of 125mph.

Interior appointments were as luxurious as ever, using only the finest hides and veneers, the most noticeable change being the adoption of separate rear seats. "A gloriously individual possession that signifies impeccable excellence and taste, an extravagant celebration of detail over function, a monument in the driveway and an occasion to drive," was how Autocar summed it up.

Dating from 1982, this Silver Spirit presents really well, and with a little bit of detailing could be rather special. 30,544 miles indicated which, judging by its condition, could well be correct but there is no paperwork to corroborate. It does drive and we believe just needs a battery. Incredibly it's on offer at No Reserve.
