This late-model Silver Spirit looks as regal as ever in metallic Royal Blue, the paintwork contrasting beautifully against the plentiful brightwork and delicate hand-painted pin stripes. The body presents with a lustrous sheen and sharp metallic flake on close inspection, remaining arrow-straight along both sides with a deep and uniform colour all round. The bumpers are without any wear or distortion, all seals appear fresh, and the lights are crystal clear. A magnificent and highly original example, having been carefully stored since new.
The stately interior is upholstered in supple grey leather, the edges piped in contrasting navy that also extends to the dash top and steering wheel rim. The pale upholstery is remarkably well preserved throughout; the rear seats appear as if they have never been sat in and the drivers bolsters show only the lightest of wear. Elsewhere, lustrous inlayed walnut trim adorns the dash fascia, central console, and doors all entirely unmarked. The neighbouring switchgear is in equally fine fettle, and a period telephone handset can still be found within the passenger armrest. In the footwells are deep-pile sheepskin rugs that feel especially luxurious underfoot.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
Development of the Spirit III focused on engineering rather than aesthetics. The technologically proven 6.8-litre V8 was retained in the new model but with substantial revisions, allowing for greater power and even more refined running. The updated powerplant featured redesigned cylinder heads with larger inlet ports and exhaust valves that improved volumetric and combustion efficiency, while a new plenum chamber ram pipe induction system enhanced low-speed torque.
This particular Spirit III has been used sparingly since new, driving only 25k miles in the last 25 years. Servicing and maintenance has always been carried out at close mileage intervals; the most recent service was done upon arrival at 4 Star in February 2020.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The Spirit sits on 15-inch wheels wrapped in a matching set of Avon Turbosteel whitewall tyres, each one with ample tread remaining. The wheel trims retain a great mirror shine with a painted Royal Blue ring and accompanying pinstripe, complementing the exterior coachwork nicely.
This rare, low mileage Spirit III was first registered in April 1995 and has seen just two owners from new. The first owner lived in the UAE but kept the car garaged at his Irish residence where it was occasionally driven by the caretaker, hence the low mileage. It remained in Ireland until very recently and is now offered for sale for the first time in the UK.
Upon arrival with us, the car was inspected, serviced, and MOTd. A slight oil leak from the rocker cover gaskets was found and immediately rectified, this work totaling in excess of £1,300. A new steering rack has also been fitted in recent months, costing around £1,200. Invoices within the History File show the car to have been serviced at the following mileages: 1k, 6k, 9k, 12k, 15k, 18k, 19k, 20k, 21k, 21k, 22k, and most recently at the current mileage of 25k.
