The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is a luxury car that was produced in the United Kingdom in various forms from 1965 to 1980 which superseded the iconic Silver Cloud. It was the first Rolls-Royce to use unitary body and chassis construction, in response to concerns that the company was falling behind in automotive innovation.
DD Classics is pleased to offer for sale a beautiful Rolls-Royce, one of the last Silver Shadow II’s built with a fully documented history and an extensively stamped service book.

Words by Paul Frere, Le Mans 24 hour winning driver after completing a 2000 mile round trip in a Silver Shadow:
‘’I did a trip from Brussels to Monaco in one day, actually starting as late 11 pm. It felt strange speeding down the Autoroute at 110MPH with no noise coming from the engine or road and air conditioning keeping the temperature inside the car perfect. On reaching monte, one impression of the Silver Shadow was dominant . I was fresh, relaxed and not in at least tired. A remarkable tribute to car after having driven 700 miles. The drive to Monaco across the Alps to Turin is punishing test for any cars handling. But the Silver Shadow came through with flying colours. The car really inspires confidence not only because it behaves safety but also because I know it has been properly put together and won’t let me down.”
