History of the Silver Cloud II
Rolls-Royce introduced the refined Silver Cloud II in 1959. Now powered by the new L-series 6.2 litre V8 engine the Silver Cloud II was capable of over 110mph. The Silver Cloud was the last of the separate-chassis cars from the Crewe, England factory and every detail was hand-fitted or assembled by true automotive artisans. Considered a rolling piece of sculpture by many, the Silver Cloud II is a prized model with collectors today for its Silver Cloud I appearance and being powered by the now legendary L-series V8 engine! Only 2,417 were assembled before the launch of the restyled Silver Cloud III in 1962.
