The Fritz Feller-penned Silver Spirit debuted at the 1980 Paris Salon. It was not entirely new, however, and employed the floorplan of the outgoing model as well as its proven OHV 6750cc V8 powerplant. The opulent incomer was lower and longer than the Silver Shadow and featured a considerably larger glass area. Courtesy of its finely-tuned Girling hydraulic self-leveling suspension, it was said to provide the best road-holding ever offered by the marque. It was also the first Rolls-Royce to feature a retractable version of the Spirit of Ecstasy - it automatically withdrew into the safety of the radiator shell if dislodged from its standard position. There were a total of four iterations of the Silver Spirit, via which it remained in production until 1998, by which time BMW had obtained an interest in the manufacturer and the Spirit was replaced by the BMW V12-powered Silver Seraph.
