1985 'B' Rolls Royce
Silver Spirit, 2 owners from new and just 29000 miles.
This is a stunning low
mileage, 2 owner car which we managed to acquire from a very wealthy
enthusiast owner who bought the car as a Christmas present to his wife in
1995, just as his business was starting to take off. The car was part of
an extensive collection of vehicles which the gentleman very kindly spent
time showing us and included a fully restored 1929 Bentley, an original
1937 Bentley with just 15,000 miles, a 1960's Mustang with only 600 miles,
a Mustang convertible, Ford GT40, Lola T70, Jaguar E Type convertible with
just 18,000 miles etc. All of the vehicles were in truly exceptional
condition and shared storage space with two Spitfire aircraft - and of
course the gentleman had his own runway within his grounds to fly them off
! The gentleman was obviously very proud of his cars and took great
pleasure in showing us around his collection, daily drivers were a
Supercharged Range Rover and Bentley Continental GTC.
The gentleman had his own
fully equipped workshop which included a hydraulic ramp and
all vehicles were enthusiastically maintained by the owner and his own
personal mechanic to a fastidious degree, we
have never seen cars with so much attention paid to the underside, all of
the vehicles were spotless underneath as though they had just left the
factory, including this Silver Spirit. The car had covered 25,000 miles in
1995 when the gentleman bought the car from the estate of it's original
owner and has still not quite reached 30,000 ! The engine oil was
spotlessly clean and the car started immediately and idled perfectly. On
test drive the vehicle performed beautifully and is in excellent order
reflecting the constant maintenance the vehicle has enjoyed. The car also
benefits from a stainless steel exhaust system. With so much
attention paid to the underside and kept inside a heated purpose built
structure - never taken out in the wet - there is absolutely no corrosion
whatsoever and barely a blemish on the bodywork. Likewise the interior is
practically as new, the seats give the appearance they have never been sat
With the vehicle we have
an A4 folder containing a large collection of services invoices, parts
receipts, every MOT back to 1993, old Tax discs etc.
This is a very attractive
vehicle finished in beautiful Nutmeg with Tan hide piped dark brown with
brown carpets protected by brown lambswool over rugs, tan top roll and
bottom roll. The rear compartment is further complemented by footstools
and vanity mirrors.
Specification of the period to include electric seats, split level climate
control air conditioning, original Baupunkt stereo which plays tapes but
we can't seem to get the radio to work, cruise control, electric windows
front and rear, electric mirrors, central locking, headlamp washers, trip
odometer, 15 inch wheels with matching Goodyear narrow band whitewall
tyres all round, all as new.
Supplied with all original keys, original book pack containing owners
manuals, service book, tool kit, spare bulbs etc. The white gloves for
wheel changing are present and unused, still in the plastic bag !
The car will come fully prepared and supplied with a new MOT. Interesting
part exchange considered.
We have been lucky enough to visit some very impressive properties during
the course of our business and meet some really interesting people but this
experience was simply off the scale. A really lovely man, self made and a
genuine car enthusiast who cherished and cosseted all his cars. Sold only
to make room for a brand new lightweight E Type Jaguar ( 1 of only 6
planned to be built, at a cost of £1.2m ! ), this is a superior example
which will provide real pleasure to the fortunate owner.
