1999 SILVER SERAPH
Large and luxurious, the Silver Seraph was produced by Rolls Royce Motors from 1998 to 2002.
The model took nearly 10 years to produce from the drawing board to the first example rolling off the production line.
First unveiled on 3 March 1998 at the Geneva Motor Show, it replaced the Silver Spur, which ended production in 1997.
Powered by a V12 BMW M73, 5.4 L aluminium alloy engine coupled to a 5-speed automatic transmission, it was first twelve-cylinder Rolls-Royce since the 1939 Phantom III.
The body was 65 percent stiffer than that of its predecessor. Standard electronics included digital engine management, adaptive ride control and anti-lock brakes.
The exterior was available in one and two-tone finishes.
Seats and dashboard were upholstered in Connolly Leather with dashboard trim and folding picnic trays for rear passengers faced with glossy burl walnut veneer.
With 322 HP and 490 Nm of torque, the car’s top speed was 225 km/h or 140 mph.
When the Rolls-Royce marque was sold to BMW, production of the Silver Seraph ceased.
Only 1570 Silver Seraphs were produced.
Imported by its current owner from the UK 11 years ago, this car has been cherished by its only Australian owner.
The car has always been serviced by specialist Rolls-Royce mechanics. A country-based vehicle, the car has only done freeway miles.
This is a fully optioned vehicle which includes adaptive ride control, digital engine management, ABS, heated seats, GPS, parking sensors, alloy wheels, electric mirrors, electric seats, central locking, alarm, air conditioning, airbags, steering wheel reach adjustment and traction control.
The car is luxurious, refined and a fantastic long-distance tourer.
