A supped up version of the Silver Spur III, the Rolls Royce Flying Spur saw limited production between 1994 and 1995. It carried over several innovations from the base model such as independent rear seat adjustment and more effective shock absorbers, along with dual airbags to meet rising safety standards. This along with hallmarks of the series like decadent upholstery and a striking, assertive aesthetic made the car almost irresistible. But the main event was the engine–which had already been improved for the Silver Spur III with specialized intakes and cylinder headsnow taken out of this world by the turbocharged Flying Spur. With the larger fuel tank from the Silver Spur II, the car could output power and keep going for hundreds of miles without slacking. Given that the past strides of the series had already visited the highest peaks of ride quality and driveability, it was now almost perfect.
Looking to purchase a classic Rolls Royce?
If youre interested in the supercharged Rolls Royce Flying Spur, remember not to mistake it for a Silver Spirit/Spur III by looking for the Flying Spur name printed at the foot of the doorframe. Oddly enough the Silver Spur III touring limousine is the rarer find, but the engine in the Flying Spur has its own appeal. After that initial confirmation you might want to check around the interior for any stains or mildew, along with any cracks or holes in the seat leather. Barring the presence of a qualified inspector, youll want to examine the body and internals looking for wear and anything out of place. This isnt the easiest process, but unavoidable if you want the vehicle valued with some degree of accuracy. Of course, its always best to hire someone properly qualified, like the Beverly Hills Car Club.
As lifelong lovers of classic cars, they can see things amateurs simply cant. Even if youre experienced yourself, a trained pair of eyes is priceless. Theyll work with you to find the car youre looking for and do everything in their power to leave you happy. With the Beverly Hills Car Club, not a second is wasted.
