The Corniche is an exclusive automobile model developed by Rolls-Royce. Its design is based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and the Bentley Mark V. Unlike the Silver Shadow, which experienced large-scale production, only approximately 4,330 Corniche models were produced between the 70s and 80s. The Corniche is a two-door car that comes in two elegant body styles, the coupe and convertible; the convertible version of the Corniche was the most popular of the two, with 3,224 models produced. The 1978 Rolls-Royce Corniche is a spectacular automobile that set the standard for comfort, style, and performance. Its 6750cc V8 engine is powerful and capable of reaching a top speed around 120 mph, making it one of the fastest luxury cars in its day. The automobile also comes with an advanced three-speed automatic transmission developed by General Motors, which helped the Corniche drive smoother and more efficiently than similar automatic Rolls-Royce models with four-gear transmissions. Another contributing factor to the Corniche’s smooth driving was its hydraulic suspension, a technological advancement of the time, which helped make the car safe and easier to handle.
