The Graham Hull-penned Silver Seraph marked Rolls-Royce's intention to reclaim its reputation as producer of 'the best car in the world'. Following a long gestation period it was eventually only made for four years - 1998 to 2002 - as a result of which just 1,570 Seraphs vacated the Crewe factory. Its monocoque chassis was 65 percent stiffer than that of the Silver Spirit it replaced, while power came from a BMW-derived all-alloy V12 engine of 5.4-litres. This Silver example with Cream-coloured hide interior hails from March 2000, has had four keepers to date and is now offered from a deceased estate. It was last attended to in May of this year by Alastair Scott Services of Perth, for which there is a bill on file for £505.39. It comes complete with the original book pack, including the service record of 11 entries, collection of old invoice's and MOT certificates plus spare key and is believed to possess a fresh MOT by the time of sale. A desirable Rolls-Royce that has covered an average of less than 6,100 miles a year from new.
