![CDATA[
Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1998, the Silver Seraph replaced the Silver Spur. All Seraphs were hand-built at the Rolls-Royce factory in Crewe, England, which stopped making Rolls-Royce models in 2002 but continued with Bentley. The car had a base price of ú155,175 in the UK and was powered by a 5.4 litre, aluminium alloy, BMW V12 engine making it the first twelve-cylinder Rolls-Royce since the 1939 Phantom III. Standard electronics included digital engine management, adaptive ride control and anti-lock brakes and, aside from the radiator grille, badges and wheels, the Rolls-Royce was externally identical to the contemporary Bentley Arnage sharing both its platform and bodyshell. Inside, the Silver Seraph and the Bentley Arnage were similar but quite distinct from one another. In the Seraph, the gear selector was column-mounted and the gauges followed a traditional Rolls-Royce layout (for example, there was no tachometer). In both cars, the seats and dashboard were upholstered in Connolly leather with dashboard trim and folding picnic trays for rear passengers and glossy burr walnut veneer.
The current owner, who has privately entered the car, purchased it from Bentley Manchester, who have subsequently maintained the vehicle for him, with the last service being just a few hundred miles ago in July 2020. The super-low mileage is very well documented throughout the history file including old MoT test certificates and many servicing and maintenance receipts. It has been used sparingly, covering just 4,000 miles in the last 14 years. This magnificent limousine has had a very pampered life and is consequently presented in remarkable condition. Having been chosen by the current owner for its elegant specification, pristine condition and very low mileage, this must surely be one of the very best remaining examples of what is already a rare and very special car. This Silver Seraph represents everything that gave Rolls-Royce its worldwide reputation for refined luxury, elegance and sophistication.
Interested parties should note that the private number plate previously on this car is being retained and a new age-related one issued instead.]]
