1985 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit, 6750cc. Registration number YIL 4504. Chassis number SCAZS0000GCH13985. Engine number 13985.
Launched in 1980, the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit was effectively a continuation of the previous Silver Shadow. While the Shadow has captured the hearts and minds of the classic car cognoscenti, the Silver Spirit offers virtually the same experience on a far more feasible budget for the majority of enthusiasts. From 1980 to 1998 the entire Rolls-Royce and Bentley range was derived from the SZ – or Silver Spirit base, and this model was technically responsible for the rejuvenation of the Bentley brand as well as the continuation of Rolls-Royce until a new, BMW-led era.
Originally Ice Green with Magnolia leather seats and light green trim, YIL was sold by Jack Barclay of Berkley Square. The service book has 23 stamps, the last at 111,175 miles in 2018.
