This Rolls Royce is an extremely special car. Only 134 Flying Spurs were produced. This Flying Spur is the special Jack Barclay limited edition DLE (Dealer limited edition). Only 3 were made in total, it’s an understatement to say this is special, this is purely rare. The Flying Spur was the first Rolls Royce with the turbo engine, and was the most powerful model on the market at the time. The car has had only three owners in total. The first owner owned the car for about 5 years. The second owner owned the car for no less than 20 years.
This Rolls Royce is still entirely in its original condition, with minimal traces of use. That is of course also possible given the use of materials, the leather that is used is of the highest achievable quality. The seats are specially made for this version and are upholstered with the smoothest leather, and if you take a seat in the back seat or behind the wheel, your feet sink at least 3 cm deep into the lambswool mats. Furthermore, the Rolls Royce is equipped with every possible luxury, beautiful “Birds eye maple” tables that are also illuminated, extensive audio system, headlining covered with leather. The tables have a recess for 2 crystal cocktail glasses, TVs in the headrests and so on, what an extravagant luxury, Delicious! As befits a real Rolls-Royce, the driver will lack for nothing. Among other things, it has independent wheel suspension at the front and rear, automatic level control, climate control, cruise control, central locking with remote control, alarm system, pneumatically adjustable lumbar supports, electrically adjustable seats with memory and electrically adjustable mirrors.
It is an open secret that the rejected leather from Rolls Royce went to their competitor Bentley, which underlines once again how perfectionist Rolls Royce works. The woodwork was often sanded for a week to get it to this level. This is the extremely rare Birdseye maple, one of the rarest woods in the world.
The exterior is at least as beautiful and luxurious as the inside, the beautiful metallic paint, Peacock blue, ensures that this Rolls Royce immediately distinguishes itself from the rest. What immediately stands out is the limousine style behind the window, which was designed by Mulliner Park Ward. The connoisseur will also immediately notice that the Rolls Royce is equipped with the so-called ‘twin circular headlamps’. This was one of the many ‘standard’ options on the Jack Barclay edition.
The technology is at least as well maintained as the interior and exterior. If you want to take a seat in the front for a change, that is also an absolute party. The Rolls Royce is powered by the well-known 6.750cc 8 cylinder that produces 360HP. Especially the flexibility that it comes with, everything goes so easily and without any effort. This is where the word “zoo” comes in handy, it is undisturbed driving with all comforts on board, here you can drive to Lago di Como, and then get out rested and refreshed. The car was also recently provided with major maintenance in the form of a complete overhaul of the hydraulic suspension system, the automatic transmission was overhauled and the entire air conditioning system was renewed.
That it is a car that pleased the previous owners becomes clear when we take a look at the documentation. The full service history is present and has always had its service at the Rolls Royce dealer or specialist. All stamps are in the booklets, and the many invoices are also available. The Rolls Royce comes with a large folder with a lot of documentation, for example the original invoice and the build sheet from the Rolls Royce factory.
The Rolls Royce was completely fine-tuned last May, and had a very complete service at a well-known Rolls Royce specialist for € 7400. .
