eBay watch: 1970s Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Roller

In the 60s and 70s, driving round in a Rolls Royce said everything about you – that you'd made it and had cash spilling out of every pocket. Since then, luxury cars have become more commonplace, but the 'Roller' is still a car that turns heads. And as this Rolls Royce Silver Shadow shows, it's not out of your reach in 2010.

This is a vintage 1975 model, previously used as a wedding car and probably could be again. Just spend a few quid on a peaked cap and you're away. Or you could simply be a 'show off' and take if for a spin round town, although that 6,750cc engine might need more than one fuel stop along the way, as well as a small bank loan to fill the tank.

Just over 100,000 miles on the clock (which isn't bad), with an AM/FM stereo, CD player, cruise control, leather seats, power-assisted steering, power seats, power windows and all the luxury you require thrown in. Check the small print for the full lowdown and if you like what you see, the bidding is currently at just £2,100.
