1985 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit V8 twin carbs from UK and Ireland
The best car in the world
I have fitted two new hydraulic pumps for the brakes and suspension.
New whitewall tyres.
The car has not let me down at all. The things I have had replaced have been for my own peace of mind.
The leather on the seats had cracked and gone hard in places, so I have had them re-trimmed in Connolly Leather to factory spec. and colours.
I love to drive the car, and think it is the most comfortable car that I have ever owned.
The interior trim is light blue, and all the walnut is like new, so it makes you feel good, as it is not dull inside the car.
Petrol consumption is not good, only 13 to 15 mpg, but you are driving around in 'The Best Car In The World'. I just love it to bits..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have an '85 Silver Spirit, and love it! It is rare Georgian Silver with Slate hide piped in black. The hides have held up remarkably well. and are still "as new", both fresh and soft! The woodwork is still like glass! Gas ,milage around 13 mpg, not too great, but the comfort and fun are well worth it. Truly the "Best Car in The World" hands down. One must learn to fix simple things, as parts/labor are more for this car. Careful periodic maintenance gives total enjoyment. I've had dozens of these cars, this one is the finest I've ever seen, and only 42867 miles!!
