The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur was a version of the Silver Spirit that boasted a long wheel base to offer an even more comfortable, roomy, limousine-style ride. Beginning in 2003, it was also the first car to feature a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament. The spring-loaded Flying Lady is virtually theft- and damage-proof.
1989 marked the final year this model would be produced in its original design, making this Silver Spur even rarer as well as elegant.
This stunning classic is a southern car that has been well cared-for . . . all the up to date maintenance records confirm this, as well as the odometer which accurately show only 71,000 original miles.. The transmission is a General Motors TH400 3-speed automatic gearbox with a 6.75 litre OHV V8 that has remained durable and reliable over the years.
Standard equipment for the Silver Spur includes a plethora of power: windows, locks, seats and mirrors. Add in cruise control, automatic climate control, and battery cut off switch in the trunk. The radio unit is a newer Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo. The trunk includes the original tools, jack and spare tire. New, this luxurious car cost $180,000. Also included is a fitted Rolls Royce car cover that will continue to protect the car's elegant finish.
The ivory exterior paint has been well-maintained with minimal paint chips, and the pristine roof is covered in Everflex fabric. The butter-soft champagne Connolly leather interior shows very little wear, and the back seat and fold-down tray tables look almost untouched. The brown carpets are Wilton wool that show no wear whatsoever as they were covered by plush sheepskin mats. The burled walnut wood is virtually flawless on the dashboard as well as the center console.
The radiator and all brightwork gleam as if new. The original steel wheels with color-matched wheel discs with the Rolls-Royce logo support the ivory body paint, and new 235/70R tires are 15-inch Avon Turbosteel whitewall radials.
The new caretaker of this stunning motorcar can feel like a king or queen traveling down the road in the style and comfort unique to a Rolls-Royce. And the Spirit of Ecstasy leads the way.
