A square-cut, broad-shouldered design, the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit was styled in-house by Fritz Feller. Introduced at the 1980 Paris Motor Show, it enjoyed notably greater road presence than its Silver Shadow predecessor as well as a thirty percent larger glass area. Thus, while it looked suitably imposing from the outside, internally it proved pleasantly airy. 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.
