1992 'J' Rolls Royce Silver Spirit III, Rolls Royce development car, chassis number 003, Full Service History

A stunning vehicle with a very interesting history which we sold approximately 3 years ago to a local elderly enthusiast who has bought a number of vehicles from ourselves and is now offered for sale on his behalf.

The Silver Spirit III was introduced in August 1993 with many revisions over the the Spirit II model, over 30 million being spent on development of the engine to increase performance and improve fuel economy utilising a new Bosch engine management system together with the GM4L80 4 speed automatic gearbox. This car is built to Spirit III specification and was registered in June 1992 by Rolls Royce and retained by the company until January 1994 for "engineering appraisal". We have a letter from Rolls Royce to this effect which also states that the car was subjected to "constant maintenance and inspection" up to it's first scheduled servicing which began at 27,600 miles. This is therefore a "pre-production" Spirit III and we assume from the chassis number that it was the third car built.

The car has now covered just 61,000 miles with an excellent up to date service record which shows previous services at 29066, 35921, 36749, 37050, 37380, main dealer service March 2001 with mileage omitted, 40385, main dealer service May 2005 with mileage omitted, 49266, 51480, 54827, 56220, 58530 and 59271 miles, all servicing carried out by Rolls Royce or marque specialist. In addition to the fully stamped service book we have a collection of other documents relating to the vehicle and full MOT history from VOSA to further corroborate the relatively low mileage.

We originally secured this car from the 94 year old RREC member who very reluctantly parted with the car due to failing eyesight. The car has obviously been the gentleman's pride and joy, always garaged and used mainly for RREC club meets, the car being photographed at Harewood House. The car drives very sweetly indeed and everything works exactly as it should, a total joy to be behind the wheel. The paintwork also impresses, finished in a most attractive colour with a deep lustre and free from any major blemish, this really is a most eye catching vehicle.

Finished in striking metallic Aegean blue with dark blue hide, dark blue carpets protected by lambswool over rugs, dark blue top and bottom rolls and rear vanity mirrors.

Spirit III specification to include electric seats with memories, heated seats, split level climate control air conditioning, original Alpine stereo system with boot mounted CD changer, cruise control, electric windows front and rear, electric mirrors, central locking, headlamp washers, fog lamps, trip odometer, 15 inch wheels with matching BF Goodrich narrow band whitewall tyres all round, all reasonably fresh.

Supplied with original keys, original book pack containing owners manuals, stamped service book, original tool kit and spare bulbs all present and correct etc.

The car will be fully prepared upon sale and supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices. Interesting part exchange considered.

An excellent motor car with an interesting background in superb condition with full supporting history
