The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow was more of an everymans car than previous editions in the Rolls Royce catalogue. Being the first Rolls Royce to incorporate all around independent suspension, it would sit shorter and lower than the Silver Cloud and overall mark a significant departure coming off as more modern in pretty much every aspect. It would see a rebirth of the old Rolls Royce elegance while also being more suitable for slogging through morning traffic and being a day-to-day vehicle as well as a luxury one. It was considerably faster than its weight would express with a top speed of around 120 mph, along with peerless handling and traction.
Models built from 1965 to 1969 were fitted with a 172 hp 6.2 L V8 engine and models built from 1970 through 1980 were fitted 189 hp 6.75 L V8. It would have several comfort features such as a very efficient air conditioning and leg room despite its shorter build. This would be because the Silver Shadow was the first Rolls Royce ever whose chassis and the body were one entity allowing for more space-conscious design. With its low, angular aesthetic and aggressive lines emphasizing the Spirit of Ecstasy hood bonnet, the silver shadow is very recognizable and has an appeal that remains well after the end of its production cycle.
