The Corniche was a popular Rolls-Royce model designed by John Polwhele Blatchley, the engineer who helped develop the iconic Rolls-Royce silver shadow. The 1972 Rolls-Royce Corniche was a two-door automobile that came in two body styles, a coupe and the more popular convertible. Of the 4,332 Corniche automobiles that Rolls-Royce manufactured, 3,224 were made as convertibles. The Corniche was the perfect balance between luxury and performance. It was equipped with a powerful 6.75-liter V8 engine that put out nearly 220 hp and can reach 120 mph. Furthermore, the three-speed manual transmission and hydraulic suspension ensured that the Corniche drove smoothly and efficiently, and its four-wheel disc brakes gave the car an added level of safety that made it easy to handle, despite the car’s heavy weight.

Because of its reputation for luxury and excellence, the 1972 Rolls-Royce Corniche is a widely-sought after car. Before you add this car to your automobile collection make sure that you consult an industry professional who can help ensure that you get the car you’re looking for.
