Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow "devil's toy"

1972, SRX11428, Ochre over white

The construction of this car was a one year job. The original car was a white 1972 Silver Shadow that had served for weddings and for rental in Berlin. The car was in a poor condition but had covered only 130000 kilometres. The new owner brought it to France in 2007 and converted it to a completely new special car, a "devil's toy".
When restoring to this devil's toy, the biggest job was to create the special air suspension. It had to be made bespoke by the owner, because there were no existing parts. It was a four months job. The paintwork lasted two weeks. The fine lines were created by hand.
The job was finished in 2008. More pictures of this car are to be found on
