World’s craziest Roll-Royce: This 1979 Silver Shadow 2 owner wanted something besides luxury


  • It is very rare you'll come across a modified Roll-Royce, hence here's one that has been modified quite extensively. It isn't anymore luxurious, oh no, one would think the customer would have wanted to improve the already polished comfort. This madcap Silver Shadow 2 owner had other ideas and the end result is something out of the Mad Max movie. (Source: Streetfx Motorsports)

  • The first thing that catches the eye is that the expansive hood has been sliced to make room for the pipes that are coming from the intercooler mounted inside of it to the carburetted engine. Bolted to the other end of the intercooler is the piping that sends the air from the turbocharger into the aforementioned intercooler and engine. At the back, there is an air intake, but a very different kind.

  • The air intake is more like one that would be found on an aircraft. Well, Rolls-Royce does make aircraft engines, but this is taking it too far. The radiator was relocated to make space for the turbo setup, hence was moved to the boot.

  • Wait, there's no air flow in the boot, well, which is quite relevant for it. This where the weird air intake plays its role. The rear fender has been modified to assure air flows through to the radiator. The modifications consist of a large hole cut into the side of the rear quarter panel with a large boxy scoops, that scoops air from the outside and blows in down through a custom duct and over the radiator.

  • Beneath the radiator is a large fuel tank that hangs beneath the trunk, only carrying enough fuel to send the car a few miles down the road to the next filling station.

    You need such attachments in India for cars to deal with two wheeler riders who come from all over the place under the eyes of the spineless police all over India.
