1983 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur
While there are more than a few high-end luxury car manufacturers across the globe, there's really only one that is undisputed as the world's finest automaker. From Atlanta to Abu Dhabi, the Rolls-Royce name is universally recognized as the symbol of uncompromising quality and extravagant luxury. To the handful of people fortunate enough to be able to afford one of these magnificent motorcars, the reward is a driving experience unlike any other. For the rest of us, perhaps waiting nearly 35 years for this 1983 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur to mature into an affordable vintage car is the best way to sample the good life.
These originally sole for over $100k, and this is a great example of the Crewe factory's art. Only the British can create a cream with a tan padded roof in such a coordinating color excellence. And the way the pinstripe matches the roof color creates a level of thoughtfulness that earns its Spirit of Ecstasy leading the way. The company's careful dedication to craftsmanship is seen from every angle, and you instantly understand it once you feel how the doors shut with poise and purpose. There have been the right investments in this upper-class machine over the years (including receipts for major work in 2009,) and today, this sedan is complete right down to the wheel covers. So while it has traveled a few miles in its lifetime, it still instantly commands attention wherever it arrives.
Open the door, and it is a luxurious greeting of burled walnut, Connolly leather, and lamb's wool. In true British luxury, the tone of the leather is a nice hue to coordinate with both the outside colors and the forest laid on the dash panels. So the full package gives a very nicely harmonized feeling. The view from behind the glossy black wheel is a great reminder how true craftsmanship should be. It includes power windows, power seats, power locks, and cruise control. The climate control still cools this cabin perfectly, so you always arrive looking and feeling refreshed. But this is not a car strictly built for the front seat. The Silver Spur is the long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit, which means there is exceptional luxury in the rear seating - after all, the owners of these cars are not necessarily the drivers. Not only does the Silver Spur have more legroom, but it also comes with footrests and tray tables so that this sedan can be used for everything from business travel to backgammon.
The smooth running 6.75-liter V8 under the hood is a staple of Rolls-Royce luxury, and this one has barely averaged over 2,100 miles annually. The fuel-injected engine was built to always have power in reserve. Its full force is delivered not like a muscle car, but more like an express train. The engine bay looks as complicated as the inner workings of a Swiss watch, but it also starts with a similar whisper. This is the original motor to the car, and so you'll happily spot original factory markings. Rolls-Royce engineers went to great lengths to isolate the mechanical workings from passengers, and as a result, the motor is highly refined. This is luxury for trips every destination thanks to a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission (borrowed from GM for better reliability) and power steering. The fully independent suspension has a self-leveling feature that keeps the big sedan on an even keel no matter the load, and it stays sure-footed with four-wheel disc brakes.
