The Appeal

The 1987/2001 Rolls-Royce 'Silver Spectre' is a unique creation, the brainchild of a London entrepreneur and car collector. This Rolls-Royce is a bespoke piece of automotive art, designed by the company behind India's first sports car, DC Design, for the aforementioned owner and entrepreneur. Based on the chassis of a 1987 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit, much of the mechanics are fully in keeping with this tried and tested luxury classic car.

The result, however, is incredibly unique; an elegant piece of styling displayed in a striking two-tone colour combination, with specially designed alloy wheels. It is a truly unique piece that has never been reproduced, although some speculate that it was influential in the creation of the 'New Phantom' launched later in 2004.

The interior, equally unique, is a luxurious blend of white leather, teak deck and aluminium, creating the ambience of a prestige yacht. This is a rare opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce, a car that was exhibited at the Emirates Classic car festival and is now available on the market
for the first time.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
