As soon as the Silver Spur and Silver Spirit hit the showroom floor in 1980, Rolls-Royce knew that they had an instant hit on their hands. These ultra-luxury automobiles were inspired by the flawless design of the popular Silver Spirit II. With these two models, Rolls-Royce worked to incorporate all of the classics that made Rolls-Royce car famous into a modern design suitable for the 1980s. Their strategy paid off, and helped make the Silver Spur and Silver Spirit two of the most coveted luxury cars of the 80s. The only difference between the two models is that the Silver Spur was designed to be the long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit, which is why it has a wheelbase that’s 4″ longer than its counterpart. Aside from that, both cars are built with the same 6.75-liter V8 engine, three-speed automatic transmission, and self-leveling hydraulic suspension that made the Corniche and Silver Shadow popular. One difference, however, is that the 1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, along with previous Silver Spur and Silver Spirit model years, contained a hydraulic mechanism that automatically adjusted the rides height as it was being driven. This helped ensure an overall smooth ride on an already comfortable car.
