The Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph made its debut in 1999 and follows a long tradition of Rolls-Royce naming cars after specters. The Silver Seraph aims to be one of the most refined and technologically advanced cars ever made by Rolls-Royce, and of course, the company has a reputation for producing some of the most luxurious cars in the world.
Every single Rolls-Royce remains fully customizable by the person who orders it, ensuring uniqueness. The 2002 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph comes in 22 exterior colors, and offers either a two-tone finish or a monotone finish. The soft hand stitched Connolly leather for the Seraph comes in 23 different shades, and the luxurious lamb’s wool Wilton carpets come in 16 different hues. Additionally, purchasers of the Silver Seraph can request a custom color.
Each car takes more than two weeks to complete and has hand-finished wood veneer trim, with every section coming from the same tree to create a completely consistent finish. Few car manufacturers pay this kind of attention to detail. In addition, Rolls-Royce has always taken pride in being able to meet individual customer specifications, no matter how strange they may sound.
It makes the perfect car for anyone looking for understated and elegant luxury all packaged up by a world famous car manufacturer. Rolls-Royce will always be synonymous with luxury and opulence, and the Silver Seraph makes no exception. If you have always wanted a top-of-the-range, luxury sedan, and if your pockets run deep, then you may want to consider this particular Rolls-Royce and purchase a little piece of history.

2002 marks the last year of production for the Silver Seraph in Crewe, the traditional home of Rolls-Royce. As a special goodbye to the Crewe plant, Rolls-Royce creates a special limited edition model complete with special leather trim and badging. This marks the end of 55 years of producing Rolls-Royce cars in Crewe.
Rolls-Royce built 170 units with duo-tone paint. The hubcaps on the 2002 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph all have the Spirit of Ecstasy symbol, and the cars have red badging, which the company originally used on pre-1933 models. The interiors come trimmed with rosewood burr veneer and even a pair of umbrellas in the trunk.
The exterior of the 2002 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph simply exudes luxury, and every model gets hand-polished to achieve the ultimate mirror finish in whichever custom color has been chosen by its owner. It looks like a pretty large car, as it sits on a 122.7-inch wheelbase and has an overall length of 212 inches. This makes it just a few inches shorter than a Lincoln Town Car.
The handcrafted interior of the 2002 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph looks absolutely beautiful. Passengers experience an incredibly comfortable and luxurious ride. It offers lots of leg and headroom, and the back-seat passengers get power seats that automatically move forward when the door opens, making it easier to get out more elegantly. Standard features include a trip computer, a park distance control system, a navigation system, and a six-disc CD changer with a remote control for rear-seat passengers. In addition, picnic tables store in the front seatbacks.
Performance & Handling
The 2002 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph comes fitted with a 5.4-liter V-12 that pairs with a five-speed automatic transmission supplied by BMW. The engine can produce up to 322 horsepower and accelerates from zero to 60 mph in just seven seconds in spite of its heavy weight. In fact, this engine remains almost identical to that used in the Bentley Arnage and the same as the one in the BMW 750iL.
Standard safety features in the 2002 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph include anti-lock brakes and traction control, but it does not offer side-impact airbags.
