The 1971 Rolls-Royce Corniche was originally the two-door version of the iconic Silver Shadow. It came in two sleek body styles, the coupe and the convertible. It was built with the same 6.75-liter V8 engine as its counterpart, the Silver Shadow. The Corniche was based on the same design as the Bentley Mark V and its bodywork was done by the French coachbuilder, Carrosserie Vanvooren. The working parts of the Corniche were similar to those of the Silver Shadow. It comes with the same three-speed automatic transmission developed by General Motors, dual SU carburetors, and a hydraulic self-leveling suspension developed by Citroen. The ’71 Corniche was a massive success, which was important for Rolls-Royce as they struggled with financial problems related to their jet engine production.
