The Corniche is an exclusive two-door Rolls-Royce model that’s available in coupe or convertible. It replaced Rolls-Royce’s Silver Shadow as the company’s premier two-door luxury automobile, and was named after the famous European road between Monte Carlo and Nice. The 1979 Rolls-Royce Corniche is equipped with a Solex 4A1 carburetor, which replaced the twin carburetor in 1977. Its powered by an aluminum 6,750cc OHV V8 engine, making the Corniche a quick car capable of reaching 120 mph despite its weight of nearly three tons. While most of the Corniches parts have been developed by Rolls-Royce, its suspension and three-speed automatic transmission were designed by outside companies. One of the reasons that the Corniche handles so well and rides smoothly is because of its state-of-the-art hydraulic system, which was created by Citroen. This system, combined with the Corniches four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, make it was one of the safest luxury automobiles of the time.
