Rolls-Royce Seraph (1998 – 2003) Review

Rolls-Royce Seraph (1998 – 2003) At A Glance


+Ostentation and luxury served up in a traditional package.

-Outdated feel. Parts becoming hard to find. Other luxury cars offer so much more for so much less.

Unveiled at the Geneva motor show in 1998, the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph replaced the Silver Spur and was twinned with the Bentley Arnage.

Built alongside the Bentley at the Crew factory, it used a BMW powerplant under the bonnet – the 322bhp 5.4-litre V12 from the 7-series, which helped get the car to 60mph in 6.9 seconds. Not bad for a car that weighs 2.3 tons.

The finest motor car in the world? Not quite, but it was the first Rolls built under BMW ownership.
