The commissioning of a beautiful object is a singular event; an occasion to celebrate. Be it sculpted bronze, an ocean-going yacht, a contemporary furniture classic, or an architectural icon, each commission is an individual interpretation, shaped by human minds and hands. Each one the fulfilment of a vision, each one an original. This has always been the essence of each Rolls-Royce motor car.
With a new styling particularly appealing to the younger generation of owners more prevalent from the 1960s onward Rolls-Royce unveiled new models in 1980. These were designed to meet the increasingly strict safety, emissions and consumption legislation proliferating internationally. Austrian born Fritz Feller now heading the styling department had been responsible for the elegant coachwork with uncluttered lines and significantly enlarged window areas. Developed on the floorpan of the Silver Shadow the new cars showed a considerably improved ride and roadholding not at least due to the new Girling automatic height control in combination with gas shock absorbers. As expected the cars were luxuriously appointed with sumptuous leather seats and deep pile carpets giving the utmost comfort and a veneer covered fascia retaining a traditional appearance.
This is a 1980 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II, the ultimate in British Elegance, Design and Comfort. Under the hood sits a 6,753 cc V 8 engine with a Bosch fuel injection and a 3-speed automatic gearbox. 62,718 miles.
