The Appeal

The 1987 Rolls Royce Silver Spur Mark I represents a zenith in the realm of luxury automobiles, a model that stands as a testament to the esteemed legacy of the Rolls Royce marque. Known globally as a symbol of opulence and distinction, Rolls Royce has always been regarded as more than a car manufacturer. 

The Silver Spur, a variant of the Silver Spirit, was designed to offer an even more spacious and luxurious experience. Its elongated wheelbase and heightened attention to passenger comfort make it a classic example of Rolls Royce's commitment to excellence in automotive craftsmanship and the ultimate in luxury. 
This particular Silver Spur, with its elegant Royal Blue exterior, is a remarkable representation of its lineage. Despite its age, the car has been meticulously maintained, as evidenced by its impressive service history and the careful stewardship of its current owner since re-importation in 2017. 

The low mileage, just over 61,000 miles, is low for a vehicle of its age, indicating a life of careful use rather than extended storage. This balance of use and preservation is crucial in a classic car, ensuring that it remains not just a showpiece but a very much usable vehicle. 
The car's condition speaks volumes about the respect and care it has received. The sumptuous Magnolia leather interior, the meticulously maintained wood elements, and the mechanical condition of the car are all testament to the owner's dedication to preserving this fantastic car. The smoothness of its ride, the quietness of its cabin, and the effortless power of its 6,750cc engine combine to create a driving experience that is as serene as it is stimulating. 
Owning a Rolls Royce Silver Spur is about embracing a piece of automotive history. It's an opportunity to connect with a legacy of luxury, to experience the pinnacle of 1980s automobile design and engineering. 

For the discerning collector or enthusiast, this car represents not just a purchase but an investment in a lifestyle, a statement of appreciation for the finer things in life, and a nod to the era when cars were built with a level of care and attention that transcended mere transportation. This Silver Spur, with its superb condition, low mileage, and careful recent ownership, offers a rare opportunity to own one of these remarkable cars.

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.

Anti-sniping

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.

Pre-authorisation

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.
