When launched in Paris in 1965, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was claimed to be the most innovative Rolls-Royce for over 50 years. With its sister model, the Bentley T, the two new models marked a revolutionary step forward for their manufacturer, Rolls-Royce. Much acclaimed from the very beginning of their career the models remained in production until 1980 in their revised editions of R-R Silver Shadow II and Bentley T2. Using the R-R Silver Shadow's floorpan and running gear the magnificent R-R Corniche and R-R Camargue were developed. Here is the full and fascinating story about design and development. A lot of previously unpublished photos of prototype motor cars do give an insight into the extremely careful development work at Rolls-Royce. The enlarged and revised 3rd edition, published in 2004, provides all the data anyone should ever need if s/he is seriously interested in a car from these model series.
