The Rolls-Royce Corniche was a front-engine, rear wheel drive five-seater produced by Rolls-Royce Motors as a coupé and convertible from 1971 to 1995. It acted as a development of the 1965 Silver Shadow, being produced with two doors instead of four. The Corniche draws its name from the French and Italian term for a corniche, a coastal road, especially along the face of a cliff, most notably the Grande Corniche along the French Riviera above the principality of Monaco
The Corniche was designed by in-house stylist John Blatchley and hand built by coachbuilder Mulliner Park Ward in Willesden, North London. Each Corniche took four months to build, with two weeks alone being spent creating the convertible roof. As a result, it is considered by many as the last of the true ‘coach built cars’.
Underneath the redesigned skin, the Corniche shared many mechanical components with its four-door sibling, the Silver Shadow. This included the same 6.75 litre Rolls-Royce V8 engine that powered the Corniche from 0-60mph in under 10 seconds through a three-speed automatic transmission. It also featured the cutting edge hydraulic self-levelling suspension of the Shadow to give it the iconic Rolls-Royce ride comfort.
The Corniche II name was applied for the United States market from 1986 and for other markets from 1988 onwards. It was developed visually during these years, with the addition of coloured-keyed bumpers and mirrors, a rim around the wheel arches and modern wheel covers. Just 1,234 examples of the Corniche II were produced between 1986 and 1989
The lovely example we are presenting was delivered new in 1986 to a customer in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. It is finished in Black Masons with a matching black canvas hood over cream leather interior. It was exported to the United Kingdom in 1997 and is showing just over 60,000 miles. It maintains its original books and is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner!
