This is a truly first class, low mileage example of the highly desirable late flagship model. Not only has this outstanding car only covered 35, 000 miles from new with a wonderful full history, it spent the first seven months with Rolls Royce at Crewe, reportedly for the use of one of the Rolls Royce Directors, and has since had two further owners. This Diamond Blue with Parchment trim 1997 model year car was first registered on the 10th July 1996, and the chassis denotes this to be the first chassis number (59001) for the 1997 model year and was then registered to Rolls Royce. The car came with an high specification to include electric front and rear seats with heating and four stage memory fronts, front telephone, picnic tables to the rear, rich burr walnut capping’s with crossbrand inlays, electric mirrors, cruise control, air-conditioning, outside temperature gauge and lambswool rugs and footstools to the rear.
With only 237 built in total, and we are told less than 100 RHD models, these cars are rare making this example something very special. The Rolls Royce comes with its original service books, manuals, spare keys and a comprehensive file of history demonstrating top quality maintenance throughout its life. S. P Broughton & Company looked after the car in its early life with services at 7532, 8849, 10486, 10831 and 11482 miles. A Bristol based garage began maintenance from 2000 with service stamped at 12156, 14566, 16668, 18385, 19780, 22301, 23140, 23919 and 24535 miles. In 2016 Rolls Royce and prestige car specialist Derek C Mowat serviced the car at 26795 miles when supplying the car to the most recent owner. Since arriving in Yorkshire in 2016, Shadow Services of Leeds serviced the car at 28712, 30758, 31709 miles, and most recently at 32739 miles Prestige Services of Leeds serviced the Rolls Royce.

Since 2016, the recent owner has maintained the car with no expense spared. Invoices total in the region of £12, 000, £3000 alone with Bentley Leeds in 2017 for new Avon tyres, adjusted wheel bearings, new battery, new park brake pads and front brake pads. A health check was also carried out with Bentley. Further expenditure was for general servicing, maintenance and upkeep with Rolls Royce specialists, but due to an intermittent fault with the gearbox, in 2021 the car went to automatic transmission specialist Martin Lowe for rebuilding the automatic transmission and torque converter. The car has clearly had no expense spared, and having spent the winter and early Spring in storage, the Rolls Royce has been MOT tested and then driven faultlessly over to us.

This is a beautiful motor car, the paintwork is of a first class standard and the bodywork beautiful throughout. Externally the car is very impressive, and it does not disappoint under the bonnet, and the upholstery is quite simply exceptional. The leather, burr walnut, carpets are all of a magnificent standard, and the general feel of the car is of a top class, beautifully maintained low mileage example. On the road the car is effortless, it performs perfectly with wonderful handling and performance, and offers a comfortable, smoothy and incredibly luxurious experience. This is a collectors piece and will be difficult to repeat.

Due in shortly.
