The Rolls-Royce Corniche is an exclusive two-door automobile with a design based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and the Bentley Mark V. The emergence of the Corniche sent a clear message to competitors that Rolls-Royce is still a major player in high-performance luxury automobiles. The Corniche struck the perfect balance between being sporty and comfortable. Its large body size and spacious interior made the car weigh nearly three tons. However, the cars 6.75-liter V8 engine was powerful enough to reach a maximum speed of nearly 120 mph, despite its bulky size. The 1985 Rolls-Royce Corniche was one of the later models of the Corniche I series, which officially ended production in 1987. It was built with a number of upgraded features that the older Corniche model years didn’t have, including a Bosch fuel injection pump, rack-and-pinion steering, an aluminum radiator, and an improved air conditioning system; all of these changes went into effect with the ’77 Corniche. However, Rolls-Royce gave all of their Corniche models the same hydraulic suspension system, three-speed Turbo Hydramatic 350 automatic transmission, and four-wheel disc brake system.
