Used 2001 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph
Edmunds' Expert Review
This 5,200-pound guardian angel will protect you like few other sedans on the planet while you bask in its luxurious hand-crafted cabin. Of course, a few coins on the Sunday collection plate won't be enough to put one in your garage.
Ghost. Phantom. Wraith. Seraph. Casting call for "Buffy"? No, just some of the specters in the Rolls-Royce fleet, the common theme being that they're all "silent as ghosts."
Rolls-Royce hails the Silver Seraph as "the most technically advanced and refined machine ever made by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars." A 5.4-liter V12 powerplant conveying 322 horsepower and 361 foot-pounds of torque at 3,900 rpm is charged with hauling around this 5180-pound sedan, and does a fine job at it -- zero-to-60 acceleration runs are procured in 7 seconds, and it only requires 2.6 seconds to go from 30-50 mph. You'll be a favorite of the local gas station, as the Titan-sized automobile (whose exterior dimensions rival that of the Chevy Suburban -- it's only 7 inches shorter but almost 4 inches wider) quaffs a gallon for every 13 miles traveled.
The negatives of driving such a heavy car are the incumbent body roll and wallow. Rolls addresses these in the Silver Seraph by increasing torsional rigidity, maintaining a 50/50 weight distribution, stiffening the springs, and giving the Seraph a wider track than previous Rollers.
The positive is that you'll claim proprietorship over cool oddities such as the mascot in the form of the lady bending over (a.k.a. The Spirit of Ecstasy -- and by the way, it's stainless steel, not silver). For safety considerations, it's mounted on a spring-loaded mechanism designed to retract instantly into the radiator shell upon any kind of impact.
The Seraph comes in one lavishly appointed configuration. Standard with your Rolls are four-channel electronic ABS and traction and stability control, which reduces engine torque and applies the brakes to the misbehaving rear wheel. You'll also kindly note the trip computer, navigation system, park distance control system, six-disc CD changer with remote control for rear passenger operation, and picnic tables in the front seatbacks.
To ensure the authenticity and originality of each and every individual Rolls-Royce, you can choose from any one of numerous configurations for your coach. The Silver Seraph offers 22 exterior colors, either as monotone or two-tone finish, 23 shades of Connolly leather for the upholstery, and 16 different tints for the lamb's wool carpeting. Of course, they are also happy to oblige any requests for special colors.
You'll be satisfied to know that it took about 18 days to complete a full set of wood veneer trim for the hand-trimmed interior, and that every wooden surface is from the same tree so as to achieve consistency. For further individualization, you can fit a bureau, a refrigerator or vanity mirrors.
Being inside of a Silver Seraph is what Holly Golightly said of Tiffany's -- "It's like nothing bad can ever happen here." Bad things would never dare be so presumptuous.

Should I lease or buy a 2001 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
