Although, based on the Shadow floorpan, the Spirit offered considerable improvements in both ride and handling. By combining copious amounts of sound deadening with the finest quality upholstery, Crewe's engineers kept intrusion from the 6.75 litre V8 engine to a muted hush. Unveiled at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Spirit II featured a sophisticated automatic ride control system that adapted to changing road conditions almost instantaneously, ergonomically enhanced `new look' dashboard, four-speed automatic transmission and standard-fit alloy wheels. Arriving in 1993, the Spirit III boasted more power thanks to redesigned cylinder heads and manifolding, airbags for both driver and front seat passenger and revised rear lights. Decidedly short-lived, just 234 Spirit III saloons are thought to have been made (of which 182 were to right-hand drive specification).

This Silver Spirit III is offered with an extensive service history and just 73,000 miles and 3 former keepers from new. Finished in Royal Blue, with complementing Cream leather upholstery, there are Blue carpets with piping colour-matched to the Cream leather. The vendor describes the car as having documented history with main dealer Rolls-Royce dealers/specialists’ and ‘a fastidiously maintained car’. This could be an opportunity to own a well-maintained example. The vendor also describes the car as driving ‘superbly with good performance and effortless gear changes’. Keen-eyed enthusiasts will notice the number plates for ‘M675 JVK’ are Rolls Royce dealer-supplied number plates (Broughtons of Cheltenham). A complete leather wallet book pack accompanies this Silver Spirit III.
