Description

French title

- Rare LHD European version
- Recent work, excellent condition
- Exclusive and luxurious model
- No reserve

This first series Rolls Royce Corniche coupé is a European model, being left-hand drive and with kilometric speedometer, making it very rare. The previous owner bought it from Germany in 2011, and had work carried out by XG Automobiles, in Asnières-sur-Seine, costing more than12,000. This included replacing brake hoses and discs, recharging the air-conditioning, a new exhaust and various other minor jobs to ensure the car was performing at its best. In 2012, the same specialist replaced the rear shock absorbers, the suspension mountings and tyres. He also adjusted the front axle, with the work totalling5,500, as shown in the invoices that come with the car. Today, the odometer records 121,462km.
Elegantly presented in metallic midnight blue with well-preserved blue leather upholstery, the car features a Nardi steering wheel. Having benefitted from regular maintenance, it is offered in good working order and presentation. Here is a wonderful example of a particularly exclusive Rolls Royce, bodied by Mulliner Park Ward, and highly desirable in this rare left-hand drive version.
