Before David Plastow left his senior position at Rolls-Royce following the take-over of Vickers plc, he had been responsible for a series of models, amongst which was the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit. The Silver Spirit was unveiled in October 1980 as a replacement for the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. The coachwork of the Silver Spirit had been designed at the in house styling centre by Fritz Feller and gave the impression of being stretched in comparison with the bodies of the previous generation. Direct comparison, however, showed only small differences. The new models had slightly grown in length and width; height had been cut a little, although the styling was more modern than that of its predecessor. The interior was dominated by the expected combination of fine wood and sumptuous leather. Originally registered on 3rd March 1981, this Silver Spirit is finished in Ice green with tan interior. To be expected of such a marque this Rolls-Royce drives effortlessly and is exceedingly smooth and quiet in operation. Supplied with a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 8th April 2016, this Roll-Royce Silver Spirit is offered for sale without reserve and could well prove to be a bargain.
