1990 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/Spur/Dawn
While there are more than a few high-end luxury car manufacturers in the world, there's really only one that is undisputed as the world's finest automaker. From Miami to Dubai, the Rolls-Royce name is universally recognized as the symbol of uncompromising quality and extravagant luxury. The handful of people fortunate enough to be able to afford one of these magnificent motorcars rewards them with a driving experience unlike any other. For the rest of us, well, perhaps waiting nearly 30 years for one to become affordable is the best way to sample the good life. This 1990 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur is a gorgeous example of the Crewe factory's art. It lives up to the silver part of its name with a triple-tone style appearance where the light and dark colors are also met by a silver-gray vinyl roof. And lovers of details will notice that even the pinstripe coordinates with the roof color. The company's careful dedication to craftsmanship is seen from every angle with a sedan that continues to fit together beautifully. The doors open and close with a precision that has to be experienced to be believed, and the panel alignment is the result of choosing hand-crafted rolling opulence. It's this kind of attention to detail that makes a Rolls-Royce command respect everywhere it goes, and it's still very present in this example today. That's why it has earned the iconic waterfall grille with the Spirit of Ecstasy leading the way. Open the door, and it's a luxurious greeting of burled walnut, Connolly leather, and lamb's wool. The gray leather with light gray piping is the perfect complementing colors to the exterior Ã¢â‚¬â€œ so you can tell was planned to be a uniform experience from day one. The view from behind the wheel is a great reminder how true craftsmanship should be. And with the front seats power adjusting to the perfect position, you'll happily spend all day driving this Rolls. Plus, you're surrounded by the best features, including power windows, power locks, seat heaters, and controls for R134a air conditioning. And to make sure you go wanting for nothing in this vintage luxury car, the stereo has been upgraded to a new AM/FM/CD head unit that also has Bluetooth and an input for your latest music player. 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 were 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. The fuel-injected engine was built to always have power in reserve. The engine bay looks as scrutinized as the inner workings of a Swiss watch, and it also starts with a similar whisper-quite tickover. Rolls Royce engineers went to great lengths to isolate the mechanical workings from passengers. As a result, its power is delivered not like a brutish muscle car, but more like an express train. This is luxury for trips of all sizes thanks to a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control. The fully independent suspension has a self-leveling feature that keeps the big sedan on an even keel no matter what the load, and it stays sure-footed with four-wheel disc brakes. Complete with owner's manual, this is prestige at an affordable price. So if you've earned a shot at the good life, call today!
