Bobbit: Silver Spirit & Silver Spur

Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit III / Silver Spur III
and Rolls-Royce Silver Spur III Touring Limousine
(1993 - 1994)

Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit III
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit III. Careful inspection was necessary to quote an additional brake light positioned at the rearlight's base as distinguishing the Silver Spirit III from its predecessor.

"In introducing a new engine which meets world-wide emission standards through to the year 2000 we have used the most advanced technology in the world to help us exceed the expectations..." stated the company's Managing Director M. Donovan when the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit III and Rolls-Royce Silver Spur III were unveiled to the public. His was a bold statement as definitely no new engine was employed under the bonnet but much refined version of the proven 6.75 litre V8 layout. Redesigned cylinder heads and manifolding were responsible for an increase in power output. Airbags for both driver and front seat passenger were standard now and the separate rear seats of the Silver Spur III could be individually adjusted. Rolls-Royce was keen to fulfill any customer's request: to fit a cassette player and small television monitors in the back of each of the front seat head restraints were almost considered as minor - on the extended R-R Silver Spur III Touring Limousine a multitude of extras could be specified.
