Characteristics and peculiarities
Backgrounds of this model
- Until the 1980s Rolls-Royce had never even tried to grab a slice of the market of the 'stretch-limos', reasoning that a much-stretched Silver Shadow would be far too expensive. But in the 1980s there was a change of heart.
- Starting in a modest way, the company commissioned Robert Jankel Design of Weybridge to develop a much-lengthened prototype on the basis of the Silver Spur, the first cars for delivery being completed by Aston Martin Tickford.
- The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur Limousine 36-inch stretch is a Rolls-Royce Silver Spur that was lengthened by 36 inch.
- This limousine was available with four or six passenger doors. The centre doors were considered not essential to anyone's comfort and were soon dropped from the specifications.
- In 1985 the model was replaced by the 42-inch stretch limousine, but 36-inch stayed available. After replacement still 4 36-inch examples were ordered.
- The car was sold besides the Phantom VI.
- The car was lengthened by an extra segment between the front and the rear door. The cars retained the standard front and rear doors of the donor Silver Spur.
- Electrically operated division.
- Extra 'jump' seats could be specified, making the car a full seven or eight-seater.
- A TV set, a video recorder, another type of radio, a telephone.
