The Corniche was a coupé Rolls-Royce and the version convertible of the Silver Shadow produced between 1971 and 1996. The Corniche was named "Silver Shadow Mulliner Park Ward two - door coupe head fixed" (alternatively, leave coupe head) from 1966 until 1971 when the name of Corniche was applied. The exterior design was by John Polwhele Blatchley.
The model was assembled and finished in London at Mulliner Park Ward as continuation of the coupe 1965 Silver Shadow and convertible of 1967, with the name of Corniche applied in march 1971. The Corniche was also sold as a Bentley although that model became known as the Continental in 1984. The first car to use the name of Corniche 1939 was a prototype based on the Bentley Mark V, which never was produced by the arrival of the Second War World.

Corniche original

Although the Corniche 1971 was the first car of that name that the company sold, the "Corniche" name had been registered by Rolls-Royce in 1930. The Corniche was a prototype based on the Bentley Mark V with a body of the signature in Paris, van Vooren. The car just committed 15.000 miles (24.000 km) of the tests of resistance in continental Europe before being destroyed by a bomb at Dieppe while waiting at the dock to be sent to England.

The Rolls-Royce Corniche was available as a coupe and convertible.

Corniche I
The car used the standard Rolls-Royce V8 engine. I had a block of alloy of aluminum-silicon and aluminum cylinder heads cast iron wet cylinder liners. The bore was 4.1 in (104.1 mm) and the stroke was 3.9 in (99,1 mm), for a total of 6.75 L (6750 cc/411 cuin). Carburetors twins THEIR were equipped initially, but were replaced with the "horribly complex" single 4A1 Solex carburetor, four-gorges introduced in 1977. The models Desmogged export maintained ITS twin is until 1980, when Bosch fuel injection was added.

Transmission three-speed automatic (a 400 Turbo Hydramatic sourced from General Motors) was standard. Suspension four-wheel independent with coil springs was augmented with a hydraulic levelling system (using the same system as did Citroën, but without springs, pneumatic, and hydraulic components manufactured under license by Rolls-Royce), at first on all four, but later in the rear wheels only. Four disc brakes on the wheels were specified, with ventilated discs added for 1972.

The car originally used a 119,75 in (3.042 mm) distance between shafts. This was extended to 120 in (3048 mm) in 1974 and 120,5 in (3061 mm) in 1979. In total, 780 hairdressing salons (coupe) and convertible 1233 built a total of 2,013 Corniche I.
