General

The in 1971 introduced first generation Rolls-Royce Corniche, was in fact a coupé and convertible version of the Silver Shadow, with the same 6750 cc (220 hp) V8 engine and automatic transmission. Of course, an exactly similar Bentley was produced with the same model name (from 1984 onwards named Continental). In 1939 the name Corniche (French for overhanging coastal road) was used for the first time for a Rolls-Royce prototype, based on the Bentley MK V, which was never produced due to the outbreak of the Second World War.

In 1977, when the Silver Shadow was no longer built, the Corniche underwent a minor facelift. Cars for the US market received an airbag for the driver and the European version was equipped with ABS. After the introduction in 1981 of the Silver Spirit, the Corniche was no longer available as a coupé. From that moment on, the iconic Flying Lady on the hood became retractable.

The third generation Rolls-Royce Corniche, standard equipped with ABS and available with color-coded bumpers, was presented in 1989 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

In 1993, the Corniche IV followed. Of the first four generations Corniche more than 6,200 copies were built until 1995. The fifth and so far last generation Corniche, the V, was introduced in 2000.
