The arrival of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and Bentley T series in late 1965 marked a major change for Rolls-Royce Motors; previously the products of Crewe had employed separate chassis but here was a car of modern design employing unitary construction of chassis and body. Underneath the skin the new Rolls-Royce/Bentley offered even greater engineering excellence and sophistication.

The model was an instant success, and production boomed; later, in 1969, the engine capacity of 6230cc was increased to 6,750cc, and a modern three-speed fully automatic gearbox came into use. Two years later, in 1971, the two door coupé and drophead models, coachbuilt by H J Mulliner Park Ward, were renamed Corniche, and received a 10% power increase over the four door Silver Shadow which increased top speed to 120mph and dropped the 0-60mph acceleration to 9.6 seconds.
