Rolls-Royce 1981-2006 - 2018 Market Review
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit

If you are in the market for a post-1981 Rolls-Royce then be prepared to spend a few decades and lots of money on maintenance before it starts to show a return.

Prices for the Spirit and Spur have increased, reflecting the quality of cars in the sample. In the past – this segment could turn up some pretty appalling $10,000 money pits.

Later Spirit II and III can be priced at more than $50,000, however most are no more expensive than a late-1980s version.

We suspect, given these cars sell in the USA at A$80-100,000, that the one-off Seraph on offer at almost $250,000 was ‘testing the market’.

Silver Spirit 1981-89 $37,550 [18]

Silver Spur 1982-90 $39,875 [5]

Silver Spur/Spirit 1991-97 $44,000 [9]

Silver Seraph $245,750 [1]
