14 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit/ Silver Spur & Bentley derivatives
Big and imposing, the choice of business leaders, despots, show business personalities and wealthy publicans is now an auction bargain. But – and it’s a big but – sorting a genuine bargain from the simply cheap is a minefield. There are plenty of good cars out there, but a pricier car is often a better, more cost-effective longterm purchase than a cheaper one. Beware anything in the mid-price range, because alongside honest motors are bodged-up examples. With any Spirit, paperwork is all – a lack of bills means steer clear.
