1990 Rolls Royce Silver Spur

Highlights

  • Only 2 former registered keepers
  • Comprehensive history file
  • Exceptional condition with rear seats appearing unused
  • Comprehensive service record 

The Appeal


By the close of the 70s, the much-loved Silver Shadow was looking decidedly outdated in a way that no longer felt particularly distinguished. It's perhaps only natural that the ever-discerning Rolls-Royce driver was beginning to look elsewhere, so the boys at Crewe brought in the illustrious Fritz Feller to produce a new, more luxurious, more modern vehicle. 

The Spur was an instant success, and was quickly picked up by the famous, the well-to-do and the undeniably flashy. The 'three-box' was still intact, keeping the essential 'Roller' image on display, but took it into a more defined, angular and elegantly minimalist direction. 

This particular car is notable for its exceptional condition and comprehensive history. With only 2 former registered keepers, the car has been meticulously maintained, and comes with a comprehensive history file, including an up-to-date service book and invoices for both major and minor parts and jobs. If you're after a piece of 90s luxury, it's a fabulous prospect.

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.
