Introduced in March of 1971, the Corniche was a revised version of the H J Mulliner, Park Ward-bodied two-door variants of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and Bentley T-Series saloons, themselves notable as the Crewe factory’s first unitary-construction cars. They featured the finest engineered technologies of the day, such as independent suspension, disc brakes in all four corners, and fuel injected power plants. In Corniche form, Rolls-Royce’s well-tried 6. 75-litre V8 produced around ten percent more power than standard and proved capable of propelling the car to a top speed in excess of 120mph with sports car-beating acceleration to match.

The model proved a major success for Rolls-Royce, and although its exterior style remained recognizably Silver Shadow, the Corniche benefited from the regular updates and improvements made to the contemporary Silver Spirit range. Remaining in production well into the 1990s, the last convertible examples were delivered in 1995.

The Corniche received a mild restyling in the spring of 1977. Difference included rack-and-pinion steering, alloy and rubber bumpers, aluminium radiator, oil cooler and a bi-level air conditioning system was added. Later changes included a modified rear independent suspension in March 1979. In March 1981, after the Silver Spirit had gone on sale, the Coupé version of the Corniche and its Bentley sister were discontinued. For 1985 there were also cosmetic and interior changes.

Corniche models received Bosch KE/ K-Jetronic fuel injection in 1977. This engine, called the L410I, produced approximately 240 PS (177 kW; 237 hp) at just above 4, 000 rpm for a top speed of 190 km/ h (118 mph). Total Rolls-Royce Corniche convertibles produced 3239.

The Corniche was popular with high income celebrities. Offering stylish, convertible motoring for four, this Corniche represents a terrific way to experience this legendary brand. This very nice Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible is in a stunning factory correct colour combination, black with a Tan/ back piping interior. The car was new delivered to New-York in 1981. Very well maintained, in very good condition and matching numbers. Full option, 6. 75 litre V8 engine, automatic gearbox and Belgian Registration.

Replacing the 1950s designed S series range of cars was a priority for Rolls Royce and when launched in 1965 the Silver Shadow went down a storm with its more contemporary design and technical features.
