The Corniche was Rolls-Royce's coupé and convertible version of the Silver Shadow produced between 1971 and 1996. The Corniche was named 'Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward Two Door Fixedhead Coupé' before 1971 after which the more elegant name of 'Corniche' was applied. The model was assembled and finished in London at Mulliner Park Ward as continuation of the 1965 Silver Shadow coupé and was also sold as a Bentley although that model became known as the Continental in 1984. The first car to wear the Corniche name was a 1939 prototype based on the Bentley Mk. V which was never produced due to the onset of World War II. The Corniche was available both as a coupé and convertible; the coupé being discontinued in 1982.

This particular example has been owned within the same family since 1978. A comprehensive file of receipts dating back to 1988, when the odometer reading was 33,363, is available for the purchaser. The vendor has had the majority of work carried out by the highly reputed Broughtons of Cheltenham and the Broughtons Bentley dealership in Pangbourne. Finished in Sand and complemented by a period Everflex roof, cream interior with contrasting piping, the car is also enhanced by a set of new white wall tyres and benefits from a recent brake system service. This Rolls-Royce Corniche presents in superb condition and drives in a manner accustomed to such a low mileage and highly cherished example. Supplied with a V5 registration document, current MoT test certificate and substantial history file, it is no surprise that these models are highly prized and extremely sought after.
