Rolls Royce Flying Spur Overview
The Rolls Royce Flying Spur is a classic saloon car produced by the British manufacturing company Rolls Royce Motor Cars. The Flying Spur is a turbo charged version of the Silver Spur. These cars were very limited in number, in fact only 134 were ever made of this turbo charged version! The interior was stylish, and the ‘spirit of ecstasy’ mascot would sink into the radiator shell if moved. This is a very expensive, rare and classy British car which holds its value well due to the limited number of cars produced.
Rolls Royce Flying Spur History
The Rolls Royce Flying Spur was only produced from 1994 – 1995. The Silver Spur was produced from 1990 – 1998, and the Mark I and II proved to be very successful across the world. The Mark III version was introduced in 1993, and it was this version that the Flying Spur was to be based upon. The Flying Spur was a turbocharged version of the Mark III Silver Spur.
This car was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1994 and is supposedly the most powerful car ever produced by Rolls Royce, outputting over 300bhp. The interior of this vehicle consisted of leather and other expensive materials. The first car produced was sent to a British customer in June 1994 and the last one produced was exported to a German customer in December 1995.
Flying Spur 6.75 V8 was the only version of this car made. As there were only 134 of these cars ever made, then one version was available but were for available for customisation by there prospective owners.
The 6.75 V8 engine isn’t known for its fuel economy but more for its performance. This car would get a lowly average of 11mpg, with up to 15mpg if driving on motorway. This is not great economically, but what do you expect for an engine like this.
The only version of the flying spur had a 4-speed automatic gearbox. We know that gearbox related parts can be hard to find for these cars, and they can be very expensive. Here at Breakeryard we have a section of our website dedicated to Rolls Royce gearbox parts.
