    • ModelSilver Seraph
    • FE Cat descThe Geneva Motor Show of 1998 saw the launch of the all new Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph. This new car was hand built at the Rolls-Royce factory in Crewe. It replaced the Silver Spur which ended production in 1997. The car had a base price of £155,175 in the U.K. and was powered by a 5.4 litre, aluminium alloy BMW V12 engine, making it the first twelve cylinder Rolls-Royce since the 1939 Phantom III. This well equipped Rolls-Royce was fitted with adaptive ride control and anti-lock brakes and shared a platform and bodyshell with its contemporary; the Bentley Arnage. In both cars the seats and dashboard were upholstered in Connolly leather with the door cappings and folding rear picnic trays finished in burr walnut veneer. The build quality of this new model was described as being the best Rolls-Royce to date. Originally registered on 19th December 1997, this Rolls-Royce presents extremely well in the classic combination of Peacock Blue paintwork and magnolia Connolly leather. Arguably the most popular colour combination for this model. The inside of this great car greets with an abundance of woodwork and exceedingly comfortable seats. The smooth 5379cc, V12 engine offers brisk performance. As one of the last Rolls-Royce models to be built at the spiritual home of the brand these cars are becoming recognised by collectors and enthusiasts as fine investments. Originally registered in the UK, this Rolls-Royce has recently returned from use as a wedding conveyance on the west coast of Ireland. Offered to auction with a file containing various bills and receipts for service work and the original Irish registration documents, this splendid car represents fantastic value.

    • Model20/25 Saloon by Lancefield
    • FE Cat descBased in Queens Park, West London between 1921 and 1948 and originally known as Gaisford and Warboys, the Lancefield Coachworks Ltd was a builder of bespoke car bodies. Their speciality was introducing sporting elements into what was considered to be ground breaking designs. The company name was derived from the companies early site of Lancefield Street. During World War II the coachbuilders switched their business to building aircraft components and it was to this industry they returned in 1948. It is thought that Lancefield only coachbuilt 25 Rolls-Royce 20/25’s from new, making this model extremely rare. This example certainly endorses the company tradition of streamlined design with its low roof line, polished waist rail and beautiful 'trouser crease' front wings, rear luggage trunk and large sunroof. This Rolls-Royce presents extremely well in black and grey paintwork with grey leather to the front and fawn Bedford cord to the rear. The previous owner of this handsome saloon was an ex-Concorde captain. During his 37 year tenure the car benefitted from a complete engine rebuild by David Haines, as well as a rebuild of the dynamo, the starter, the magneto, the coil and the Autovac. The comprehensive list of works include a re-coring of the radiator, re-chroming of the bumpers a full rewiring and retrimming. This impressive saloon is also fitted with an external cartridge oil filter and overdrive. A large history file with invoices and photographs accompanies the car along with accessories that includes a bottle jack, wheel spanner, starting handle, copper mallet and a Rolls-Royce tool box with assorted spanners and tools. This very well cared for car is presented to auction with a V5 registration document, a drivers handbook, maintenance manuals and service literature. This MoT test exempt Rolls-Royce is a stunning example of this rare model. It is pleasing to think that when this 20/25 was built Henry Royce was still alive, I am sure that if the great man saw JJ 4098 today he would be pleased as well.

    • ModelFlying Spur
    • FE Cat descThe Rolls-Royce advertising logo of making the best cars in the world was certainly relevant when the Flying Spur model was launched. This model was not just the fastest or most expensive Rolls-Royce saloon to appear on the price list but was also the most exclusive, with just 150 examples being produced by the factory in Crewe. Apart from the restriction in numbers produced it was the first Rolls-Royce to be fitted with a turbocharger. The factory announced that although weighing in at 2387kg this model could propel itself to 60mph in a remarkable 6.9 seconds. This newly turbocharged engine also produced the greatest torque of any production car at the time and eclipsed even the McLaren F1 and Aston Martin Vantage. This impressive Rolls-Royce was ordered new from the Murray Motor Company in Edinburgh, at a cost of circa £150,000, and was delivered straight to Mulliner Park Ward for upgrades and improvements. The original factory build sheet for this Rolls-Royce shows the attractive colour combination of Royal Ebony and Parchment leather in addition to some well thought out enhancements. These include RR insignia and inlay to all doors, veneered panels to all doors with Parchment piping around the door handles and an upgraded power amp. The addition of a Harvey Bailey handling kit, upgraded alloy wheels, picnic tables, electric rear seats and badge bar mean that this car not only looks the part but also handles well. The comprehensive paperwork file that accompanies this Flying Spur includes the original service book and handbooks, receipts for service works that total nearly £45, 000, the V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 14th June 2020. This well presented, well looked after epitome of classic English motoring will still turn heads and is available for a fraction of its original cost.

    • ModelSilver Seraph
    • FE Cat desc* REDUCED ESTIMATE * Majesty typifies the Seraph. It is, quite simply, the best. If you are looking for the most comfort, the best understated innovation and the sort of performance that will transport its passengers, without fuss or drama, to their destination and arrive in a better mood than when they set off, then Rolls-Royce has always been the answer and when the Silver Seraph appeared in 1998, this model was no exception. Motive force came from the BMW V12 unit, 5.3 litres and more power than you will ever need. Build quality was noted, at the time, as better than ever before with a fully galvanized chassis and Connolly leather with burr walnut throughout the cabin. This supreme gentleman’s motorcar present in Rolls-Royce silver with black Connolly leather interior, matching carpets and burr walnut picnic trays to the rear. Originally a cancelled order to the Sultan of Brunei, it comes, unsurprisingly, well equipped with a fully comprehensive history and document file, the most recent service showing new brake pads and sensors. Fitted, as you would expect with air-conditioning, a multi-function steering wheel and a discreet cd system in the armrest, this, last of the Crewe-built Rolls-Royces, is in excellent condition throughout and represents incredibly good value.

    • ModelSilver Shadow I
    • FE Cat descThe Silver Shadow was a luxury saloon car built from 1965 until 1980, it was the first Rolls-Royce to be constructed using a monocoque chassis and, to date, has the largest production volume of any Rolls-Royce. The original Shadow was slightly narrower and shorter than the Silver Cloud, which it replaced, but managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by its construction. Aside from a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc brakes instead of drum brakes and independent rear suspension rather than the ageing live axle design of previous cars. The car’s most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from Citroën, with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. At first, both the front and rear of the car were controlled by the levelling system; the front levelling was deleted in 1969, as it had been determined that the rear levelling did almost all the work. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this arrangement. This stunning example, presented in metallic Willow Gold with a full black leather trim, was first registered on 14th November, 1975. In 2016, this example was subject to a comprehensive restoration my marque specialists, Mark Taylor Rolls-Royce and Bentley Ltd. of Chichester, West Sussex to the tune of £33,500. Contained within the history file is a full invoice from Mark Taylor detailing the works, several old MoT test certificates documenting the low mileage and the invoice for a full repaint. The chromework is excellent as is the interior trim and wood cappings. The inside of this Rolls-Royce is truly a wonderful place to sit whether driver or passenger. The present owner informs us that the car has been serviced when necessary and performs excellently. A Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in this condition is a rare thing and, with such low mileage, this is genuinely a collectors example of the ever popular majestic British classic. Offered at a sensible estimate and presented in such splendour, viewing of this example is highly recommended.

    • ModelSilver Wraith
    • FE Cat descThe Rolls-Royce marque has long been the benchmark of automobile for which many aspired to. The Silver Wraith II is an extended wheelbase version of the popular Silver Shadow II, and it was named in honour of the first post-war Rolls-Royce. The Silver Wraith was further distinguished from its shorter wheelbase stablemate by the fitting of the Cornich/Camargue-pattern wheel trims. The Shadow and its derivatives were the first to utilize a monocoque body and the car ran with a 6.75-litre V8 engine that is both powerful and silky smooth. This is mated to the always reliable GM supplied automatic transmission. Changes to the Silver Shadow that carried over to this more upscale model included the addition of rack-and-pinion steering, plus significant improvements to the front suspension that also helped improve the handling and overall performance. These changes ushered in more modern standards that were already available on selected competitors in this fashionable field of vehicles. The larger Silver Wraith was considered the top of the range for Rolls-Royce in this period and also stands apart due to its Everflex covered roof and small rear window. Increasingly sought after by interested collectors, only 2,135 Silver Wraiths were manufactured by the time production ended in October of 1980. This example is one of the last Silver Wraith’s produced by the Crewe based Manufacturer. With only three owners from new, this Rolls-Royce presents in exceptional condition throughout. The brake system was overhauled in September 2018 and the car comes with all the original service books. Finished in Walnut with tan leather interior, the burr walnut wood is unmarked, this is a Silver Wraith of the highest quality. The V8 engine burst into life when requested and the car drives beautifully. The car is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate together with a good history folder. Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow’s have become increasingly desirable of late, this magnificent rarer Silver Wraith with only three previous keepers is expected to continue the trend.

    • ModelSilver Shadow II
    • FE Cat descThe Silver Shadow broke new ground for the Crewe Company in a number of key areas, from the sophisticated fully independent suspension with an advanced self-levelling system to four wheel ventilated disc brakes. The only major components carried over from the Silver Cloud III was the excellent, all aluminium, 6.2 litre V8 and four-speed automatic transmission with fluid flywheel, the latter replaced by GM’s excellent 400 three-speed box in October 1968 while the engine was enlarged to 6.75 litres the following year. Although no power output was ever divulged by the company, merely described as ‘adequate’, the Silver Shadow’s superior aerodynamics meant the car was perfectly happy cruising the motorways. No less than eight individual Connolly hides were used to trim the interior of each car and the standard of finish on the upholstery, rich Wilton carpets and burr walnut veneers was impeccable. Each Silver Shadow employed 20 electric motors, powering everything from the radio antenna to adjusting the individual front seats. Build quality on the Silver Shadow remained unsurpassed, each taking no less than 12 weeks to build from start to finish. This Rolls-Royce was originally registered on 14th June 1979 and is finished in Champagne with beige leather trim. This car has been in storage for a number of years although periodically she has been run and moved. A new battery was fitted and she fired up almost instantly. Having been driven on private land it appears the gearbox and brakes are working fine although clearly this Silver Shadow II will require recommissioning. The bodywork shows no significant signs of rust and it is thought the paintwork will improve dramatically with a machine polish. Likewise the leather interior would benefit from some hide food and a clean. Supplied with a V5 registration document, these Rolls-Royces have become increasingly popular in recent years with good examples regularly selling for £20,000 and above.
