2000 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph

The 2000 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph shared the same platform as the Bentley Arnage and was the first 12-cylidner Rolls-Royce since the 1939 Phantom III. The 12-cylidner powerplant was courtesy of BMW and mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. It came equipped with traction control, Connolly leather, burr walnut wood trim, and many luxurious amenities. Between 1998 through 2002, just 1,570 examples of the Silver Seraph were produced.

For 2000, the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph was given several updates increasing an increase to the rear seat dimensions, a GPS navigation system, and Park Distance Control. The exterior mirrors could now be folded in with just the touch of a button.

The 4-door Saloon had a base price of $219,900 and was the least expensive vehicle in the Rolls-Royce lineup.

Developed with help from the BMW Group and powered by a 5.4-liter BMW V12 engine, the Seraph was a far more modern car with up-to-the minute electronics controlling the adaptive ride control, five-speed automatic transmission and a plethora of safety equipment. Body stiffness was said to have improved by 65% producing a better ride, handling and increased drivability. The long wheelbase version was named the Park Ward.

The Silver Seraph was the last model to be built at Crewe and was effectively the first all-new Rolls-Royce since the launch of the Silver Shadow more than 30 years earlier.
