Rolls Royce Boarding School Trunk Test Rolls-Royce Graham Hull English School Silver Spirit Spur SZ

Owners dropping off their precious children needed to know if a private school trunk would fit in the boot - or did they? In this episode, Graham explores a number of issues for potential owners of the new Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit IV! He also highlights the amount of work that went in to the details of a Rolls-Royce that no other car manufacturer would have been able to afford to do - or even gave the skilled workforce that Rolls-Royce had. He makes it sound like a very normal every day design process but he was dealing with a global icon that had to be brilliant form the very beginning!

The Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit is a full-size luxury car produced by Rolls-Royce Motors, in Crewe, England, from 1980 to 1997. It was the first model in the Rolls-Royce SZ series. The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur is a long-wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit, produced from 1980 to 2000. It was the first car to feature a retractable Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy. The spring-loaded mascot sank into the Rolls-Royce radiator shell if dislodged from its position.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit was introduced by Rolls-Royce in 1980 as the first of a new generation of company models. It formed the basis for the Rolls-Royce Flying Spur, Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn, Rolls-Royce Touring Limousine, Rolls-Royce Park Ward, and Bentley Mulsanne/Eight series. The Rolls-Royce Spirit/Spur carried over the basic design of the Silver Shadow, its 6.75 L L410 V8 engine and GM-sourced THM400 3-speed automatic gearbox, and similarly styled unitary bodywork manufactured at Pressed Steel. The Rolls-Royce Spur/Spirit continued the Silver Shadow's emphasis on ride quality by utilizing its hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension, modified with Girling automatic hydraulic ride height control system and gas-charged shock absorbers. Sealed beam headlamps were fitted in the United States due to longstanding regulations, while European laws allowed for the fitment of more modern composite units.
Designed by chief Rolls-Royce designer Graham Hull in the autumn of 1992, the New Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/New Silver Spur was the final revision of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit and Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, introduced late in 1995 as a 1996-year model.

A marketing decision had been made that the cars should not get a "series IV" designation because the number four is a homonym for death in some Far Eastern languages.
Major Rolls-Royce changes included the introduction of a Garrett turbocharger on all models and the replacement of the previous Bosch engine management systems with one by Zytec. Also new were updated integrated front and rear bumpers and sixteen-inch wheels. As of 1997, the long wheelbase Rolls-Royce became standard, with Rolls-Royce limousine models offered in extra-long only. Inside, a wooden column running down the centre of the dashboard was added.

Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit production ended during the 1997 model year, although vehicles continued to be produced through 2000 to use up Silver Spirit bodies and parts remaining in stock.

The Rolls-Royce Park Ward Limousine

The Rolls-Royce Park Ward replaced the Silver Spur/Spirit Touring Limousine. In the middle of the 1998 model year the name was changed to Rolls-Royce Silver Spur Park Ward. The model nomenclature on the badge on the rear of the car says Park Ward. Standard equipment on this model included a bar cabinet with crystal decanters and goblets, intercom, an electrically operated division and a backseat sunroof.

Rolls-Royce touring limousines were built to a Robert Jankel design in cooperation with coach builder Mulliner Park Ward, London.
