Pros

It's breathtakingly beautiful, also being so well made it is quite reliable.

Cons

Parts are very difficult to find, and very expensive.  Must be able to work on it yourself, because no workshop except for dealers will touch it.

It's A Roller — Timeless is the only way to describe this car. It's stunning, and doubtlessly the most comfortable car I've ever driven. 6.2 litre motor gives it "adequate" power. Hydraulics make it stop, and run smoothly. The interior is what you would expect from a hand made vehicle, and despite its age it's equiped with power seats, windows, and every other amenity. Unfortuneatly, it is inherently expensive to own. Nevertheless, the attention it gets is so much fun. It draws crowds whenever you stop for fuel.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

If A Car Can Spoil You, This Car Can. — The Rolls Royce Silver Shadow is one of the most recognizable cars on Earth. Just the site of one of these huge works of art commands your attention. Comfort is defined by riding in one of these cars. The 73 still was produced with the beautiful "full chrome" bumpers, which are much more attractive than the rubber ones mounted to later cars. These cars are expensive to maintain. Buying or downloading manuals, joining Silver Shadow forums online will provide great advice of doing much of the maintenance yourself. Remember, a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow NEVER breaks down.......however.... they may fail to proceed......

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Love It! By Anton

Performance: Great acceleration for the weight of this car. Braking under a heavy load can be dangerous. Ride comfort is great, but handling can be a little bit too mushy sometimes. 6.2L V8 engine i... Read More
