With even more excellent handling via several refinements to the Silver Shadows already revolutionary self-levelling suspension and new power-assisted steering; the Silver Shadow II owned the streets. It sported the same 189 hp V8 engine as its predecessor along with its aggressive and low-sitting unitary design. There were a few differences between European and North American versions with the European version having a bit more curb clearance and the North American version having a special energy-absorbing bumper.
