Characteristics and peculiarities

Backgrounds of this model
- The Silver Spirit III is the successor of the Silver Spirit II.
- The lengthened edition, the Silver Spur III, was upgraded too to a third generation of the model.
- In the meantime Bentley followed a model line of their own.
- The Silver Spirit III was considered to be the final production phase of the Silver Spirit models. Later it would turn out that a fourth generation would be necessary to keep the sales on level until the launch of the successor, the Silver Seraph.

General characteristics
- Distinctive wheel trims with painted rings.
- American cars no longer required the separate rectangular sealed beam headlamp units.
- The Silver Spirit III has two airbags standard. The passenger's airbag is fitted within a veneered panel directly ahead of the passenger seat. The glovebox is repositioned under the facia.
- An identification plate "SILVER SPIRIT III".
- Plastic engine cover.
- A transmission Shift Energy Management (SEM) for a smoother operation.
- New seats with additional lumbar and side support and head restraints.
