Motorcar Location: Derby
Vendor Condition Ratings:
Electrical Equipment: 'Excellent'
Interior Trim: 'Excellent'
Finished in Metallic Red with Cream leather upholstery, ‘E20 ARR’ is described by the vendor as being in ‘excellent’ condition with regards to its 6750cc V8 engine, automatic transmission, electrical equipment, bodywork and paintwork. A former award winner, the Silver Spirit III is said to have had just three owners from new all of whom have been members of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club. The accompanying extensive history file reportedly contains information from production to date and thus confirms that the recorded mileage of 32,708 (when viewed in October 2020) represents the total covered from new. Passing its most recent MOT test on September 8th 2020 with ‘no advisories’, the luxury saloon also boasts heated back seats and rear parking sensors. A rare and increasingly collectible late model Spirit with great provenance.
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).
