Facts about the model

När Silver Shadow lanserades 1965 innebar den ett stort steg framåt i utvecklingen jämfört med föregångaren Silver Cloud. Den nya modellen var visserligen både mindre, fyrkantig i sin design och inte lika attraktiv jämfört med föregångaren ansåg experterna. Men samtidigt var den nya bilen också både lättare, snabbare och hade bättre vägegenskaper än någon tidigare Rolls-modell. Tidiga versioner drivs av en 6,2 liters V-8 som ärvts från Silver Cloud III. Motorn växte sen till 6,8 liter under 1970. Drivlinan består också av GM: s Turbo Hydramatic 400 treväxlade automatlåda som är standard liksom elektriska fönsterhissar och skivbromsar runt om.

Den exemplariska interiören innehåller bland annat lädersäten, ullmatta och instrumentpanel samt dörrklädsel i valnöt. Precis vad de kräsna kunderna förväntar sig av den legendariska
lyxbilstillverkaren. ”All made in the UK” när det är som allra bäst.

Över 30 000 bilar tillverkades under de 15 år som Silver Shadow var i produktion. Den fanns i tre olika karossversioner - som 4-dörrars, 2-dörrars coupé eller cabriolet.
