1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II by Supercar Megabuild
I just love old-school Rolls-Royce vehicles’ they are in a league of their own, boasting a high-society attitude and overall luxurious touches than no one can ignore. The 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II by Supercar Megabuild, on the other hand, takes things in a different direction. Purists might believe that the name of the ultimate level of luxurious, elegant motoring in the 1970s has been tarnished. However, the wood trim, leather upholstery and other equipment of old have been transformed and updated to fit modern times. The personalized Silver Shadow features massive fender flares, huge alloys, and no bumpers. The matte black paint reveals that this Silver Shadow means business and will have none of that exquisite parties and fashionable events.
Some might recognize this particular Rolls from TV, as the subject of a drift car project. To make that happen, the rear differential was welded and the automatic transmission was modified to hold gears. The big 6.7-liter V8 has been remapped, and the sound has to be magic. On the inside, red leather, custom race seats, the hydraulic rear handbrake and overall custom touches look exciting, to say the least. So, if you have around $130,000 U.S. lying around, doing nothing, feel free to purchase this monster. Otherwise, a $20,000 stock Silver Shadow might be the ideal starting point for your very own project.
