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 goes glam, celebrates Art Deco heritage in Paris

Thu, 27 Sep 2012 05:30:00 EST

Rolls-Royce has used the 2012 Paris Motor Show to pull the covers off its art deco-inspired Phantom saloon, Phantom Drophead Coupé and Ghost models. These three bespoke machines are said to pay homage to the 1925 Paris Exhibition or Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. Not coincidentally, the phrase 'art deco' was coined at that very show.
These three models are finished in period-correct color schemes and feature details that include mother of pearl and silver inlays and ornamental glassware. According to Giles Taylor, Design Director Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, "Art Deco was defined by theatre, glamour and a sense of excitement. Working to create contemporary interpretations of these classic themes has been enormously rewarding for everyone in my bespoke design team." But of course.
Feel free to check out our live gallery of high-res images above along with the official shots released by Rolls-Royce below. There's also a press release or two waiting for your prying eyes, if you're so inclined.

BMW preparing two concepts for Villa d'Este

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 07:58:00 EST

Every spring, the finest automobiles ever to grace tarmac gather on the shores of Lake Como for the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. It's a chance for the most beautiful classics to compete for awards and for automakers and design studios to show off their concept cars under the soft light of the Italian sun. But while most of the vehicles old and new that show up for the concours are ones we've seen before, BMW takes things a step further.
As patron of the concorso d'eleganza for the past ten years, BMW regularly cooks up something new for the glamorous extravaganza. Last year it teamed up with Pininfarina for the Gran Lusso Coupé and revealed it alongside the Concept 90 motorcycle. The year before that came the BMW Zagato Coupe, preceded by the 328 Hommage and the M1 Hommage (pictured above) before it.
The theme for this year's event is the Roaring Twenties. BMW may not have been known back then on the same level as Bugatti or Duesenberg, but Rolls-Royce sure was.

Rolls-Royce starts a turf war in the Garden of Wraith

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 12:00:00 EST

The Rolls-Royce Wraith would not be our first choice for hooning. Sure, it's god 624 horsepower channeled to the rear wheels, but it's an automatic, it costs the better part of $300,000 and it's laden with more leather, wood and carpeting than Harrod's. Leave it to Tax the Rich to toss it around then.
For those unfamiliar, the YouTube channel sporadically features videos of some of the most powerful and expensive pieces of automotive machinery being put up to no good. They've done the Ferrari 288 GTO, F50 (two of 'em, in fact) and Enzo and even the Jaguar XJ220 - twice - but now they've turned their attention to the most powerful Rolls ever, tossing it around the grounds of an old-world mansion estate like it was a Subie.
