Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I LWB – 1973

With this left-hand drive Silver Shadow lwb you will imagine yourself in an ultimate luxury experience. The car is also very beautiful in this color scheme. Every conceivable luxury is on board and the interior has stood the test of time. We have driven extensively (1000 km) with the car where we can only say how good the car drives. It is also striking how many nice reactions the car receives from passers-by.

The Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase is the predecessor of the Silver Wraith II. This car, like so many others around this year, was later upgraded to the more modern bumpers. Back then, it seemed like you had the new model. The car was made for Qatar, but was never delivered there, it stayed in London and later sold to the mainland.

The car is equipped with a 6.7 l V8 that delivers 189 hp and a Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic gearbox. The engine runs smoothly and provides sufficient torque and power. In the some pictures, there seems to be color difference, but it is not, shadow in pictures.

The car is always well cared for in the Netherlands by an experienced Rolls Royce specialist and there have certainly not been any cutbacks. For example, a major overhaul was recently carried out, including overhauling the entire brake system. A total of 25,000 euros was invested in the car by the previous owner in recent years. We have invested around 3300 euros to prepare the car as well as possible for a happy new owner.

Only 2,136 copies of this model were made, which makes the car exclusive.
