Like all Silver Spurs from 1994 onwards, its 6,750cc V8 benefits from turbocharged induction and four-speed automatic transmission. Boasting specially upgraded brake and suspension assemblies to compensate for the extra weight, it is finished in royal blue with very soft tan leather upholstery. To left-hand drive specification it has covered just 80,000km (50,000 miles) from new. Described by the vendor as being in very good overall condition, it was Rolls-Royce agent maintained in Belgium. Riding on smart alloy wheels, this genuinely bombproof Rolls-Royce is expected to possess a new MOT certificate by the time of sale. PLEASE NOTE: The vendor has also informed us that the engine was upgraded and turbocharged, the brakes/supension/wheels were upgraded and that the only owner was the British & Commonwealth Office. The vehicle also has an MOT until September 2006.
