The Silver Spirit was launched in 1980 as the first model in the SZ series. The Silver Spur is a long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit, produced at the same time. The Spirit was the first car to feature the retractable Spirit of Ecstasy. The spring-loaded Mascot sank into the radiator shell if dislodged from its position.
The Spirit/Spur was not entirely new, it continued to use the basic design of the Silver Shadow as well as that motor car's 6.75 Litre V8 engine and GM sourced THM 400 3-speed automatic transmission. The Spur / Spirit continued the emphasis toward a high degree of ride quality by utilising the self-leveling suspension from the previous model Silver Shadow, though in this application using a Girling automatic hydraulic ride height control system and gas-charged shock absorbers.
The vendor tells us that this car has Full Service History, and is finished in an unusual combination of Red with Grey Leather. The car has recently had a new radiator and tyres. It is described as a very nice car that drives well.
