1999 Rolls Royce Silver Spur IV at Scarsdale

Rolls Royce Spur IV Front

Rolls-Royce held on to its ideals hard and fast in the end of the Nineties. BMW was finishing up the Silver Seraph, and the Spur and its ilk were fast on their way out. However, here in America, the new Seraph, with its newfangled V12 engine and swoopy styling, god a tepid reception. Rolls Royce luckily had some Spur parts left, and cobbled up the final series of the Silver Spur, known as the Series V. Very few were made, and very few are left. In fact, this white Silver Spur IV is one of a scant 70 made in 1999, the final model year of the Spur. While it’s certainly not the finest car they ever made, or the most elegant, or the fastest, this is the end of an era for Rolls–the last car they ever built with the traditional 6.75L V8, and one of a select few sold with the twin turbo setup. It’s cool, calm, collected, and definitely my sort of car. Enjoy the photos.
