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-levelling 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.

This Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit is presented in metallic grey with cream leather interior and is described as being in very good condition. The car has had 5 previous owners since new, with the current keeper showing as having aquired the car in 2011. The car has full Service History stamped in two service record books up until 90,000 miles, with lots of invoices for servicing and repair work thereafter, showing that the car has been extremely well cared for over the years. There are also lots of old MOT certificates present in the history file.

The registration number E20 RRR is included in the sale. The car is in very good condition overall, and is said to drive very well. This car offers a chance to experience Rolls-Royce luxury motoring at a very reasonable price.
