Description

This Rolls Royce Corniche from the 1st series is in a neat, moving condition. Both the interior and exterior look good overall. The car has been in the possession of the same owner for the last 20 years and has carried out restorations over time. The car has a valid MOT until 11-04-2020. 3,239 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertibles Series 1 have been produced, making this car a unique appearance. The engine is a V8 with 6,752 cc. The Rolls-Royce Corniche was the coupé and cabriolet version of the Silver Shadow from 1971. Unlike the Silver Shadow, the Corniche remained in production until 1996. Previously the model already existed as Silver Shadow Coupé and Silver Shadow Drophead Coupé, but from 1971 these types got their own name. The same car was also sold as Bentley Corniche and from 1984 as Bentley Continental. In 1939 a prototype Rolls-Royce, based on the Bentley Mark V, had already been named Corniche, but it never came into production during the Second World War. To get a good impression of the car we advise you to come to one of the viewing days.
