This first of the Silver Shadow series underwent a detailed restoration. It is a very true and straight example finished in sought after classic 2-tone Shell Grey over Tudor Grey with black Connolly leather interior, highlighted with hand-painted contrasting fine pin-striping to the waist-line and hub-cap beauty rings. This Silver Shadow it is a stunning example.

Beautifully and well restored some 6 years ago by us, it was a well maintained California example to begin with and has been owned by a Rolls-Royce enthusiast since. The body was straight & rust-free but the paint was faded (it still had its original single stage paint from the factory). So it underwent a high-end repaint, it is now lustrous and consistent. Being a brand new paint job in relatively recent times, and cosseted ever since, it is virtually without any marks or blemishes of any kind. The fine-lines were hand-painted by one of the few remaining craftsmen of the art. The car has always been climate control stored since its restoration and has never seen rain, snow or salt.

The interior is in stunning condition presenting in totally original format. The leather cushions and squabs on the front seats were redone and the rest of the original leather is very good showing a nice degree of patina. It is a very welcomed look. Overall, it is excellent in appearance with only displaying moderate use over the years (if you are the type that would like the rear seat to look as new as the front seat, let us know and we can refinish for you - only the seat cushion can you see a difference). Importantly, there are no cuts, tears or worn patches. The carpets are new Wilton wool, custom to made to factory look. The burl walnut wood is excellent with the dash, front window embellishing and all 4 door cappings having been refinished at the time of its restoration. The car has original picnic tables fitted to the rear of the front seats. The dash-board is the high-light of the interior with a stunning wood-grain that displays, by the grace of nature, a heavy contrast of light and dark grains

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe Waterspeed Collection is a real land yacht

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 11:01:00 EST

There aren't very many better places to show the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection than at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Not only is this aquatic-themed land yacht parked on the Concept Car Lawn appropriately very near the Pacific Ocean, it's being seen by some of the most wealthy car enthusiasts in the world on one afternoon.
The car actually debuted in May in Europe, but Rolls-Royce decided to show it again to West Coast customers. This luxury droptop is dedicated to former British waterspeed record-holder Sir Malcolm Campbell, hence the name. Campbell used a boat powered by a Rolls-Royce R engine to reach 126.33 miles per hour in 1937 on a lake in Italy and break the old milestone. Later, he took the same craft to 129.5 mph to further establish his dominance.
The Phantom Waterspeed takes inspiration from these accomplishments with a two-tone look that mixes shining Maggiore Blue exterior paint and a brushed steel tonneau cover to replace the normal teak. The blue color scheme even extends to the engine and interior trim in combination with contrasting Windchill Grey leather. Rolls isn't building many of these marine-inspired leviathans; check one out on the lawn at Pebble Beach in our gallery.

Rolls-Royce readying Wraith convertible

Thu, 08 May 2014 11:31:00 EST

For seven years, Rolls-Royce got by on the Phantom line alone, expanding on the original saloon with a long-wheelbase version, a coupe and the convertible. But now that the Ghost is part of the family, Goodwood seems to be following a similar expansion.
What started with the Ghost sedan has since been joined by the extended-wheelbase model and the Wraith fastback coupe. And now we're receiving spy shots of a Wraith-based convertible undergoing testing.
Potentially to be called the Wraith Drophead Coupe like its larger Phantom-based counterpart, the cabrio is likely to borrow much from the Wraith fastback - including its 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 producing 624 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque - but with a folding cloth roof mechanism to let the wind and engine note in, although the prototype pictured here is wearing a makeshift hardtop.
