Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II that we show below corresponds to the representation of the highest level in standards of luxury in the 70. At that time, the cost of maintenance per year of this “Rolls” corresponded to the purchase of a car of average range. For this reason, never imagined that someone planease made to one to transform it exactly for what it was not designed.
The car transformed had a leading role in a reality carried out by a television programme Uk. The clerk to request this feat was the pilot of Drift Japspeed Shane Lynch. For the realization of the project, the company specialized in modification of vehicles, Z Cars UK took over command of the operation.
The characteristic exterior silhouette of the Silver Shadow II, is practically the only thing that has remained original of this Rolls Royce. The interior has been designed and built to measure thanks to coach london Project Khan. The box changes original three relations was modified to adapt it to the driving mode of the “yaw”. In addition, we added a shift kit JW with a ratchet B&M Pro.
In terms of the engine, maintains the traditional V8 engine of six litres and three quarter (6 3/4). Wheels completely redesigned, paint matte black and a hydraulic hand brake essential to compete in an event of Drift. air Suspension, flared wheel arches and a bumper have been completely substraídos of the original version.
In the beginning, what most calls the attention is the antithesis with which they are confronted continuously by this project. Consider transforming a Rolls Royce two tons and with a power that does not exceed 200 HP in a vehicle to Drift can be a far-fetched idea from the beginning. However, this example shows that with work and good arguments, there are no excuses worth the time to make your dreams a reality in the world of motorsport.
we Want you to see with your own eyes. For this reason, we leave here a video for you to enjoy in all its splendor.
