The 1986 Rolls-Royce Corniche was one of the last model years for this iconic two-door Rolls-Royce automobile. The Corniche was inspired by the popularity of the Silver Shadow, Rolls-Royces most produced car of all time. At the time of its inception, the Corniche was simply a two-door Silver Shadow that came as a convertible or coupe. However, over the years, Rolls-Royce gave the Corniche enough of significant upgrades that helped it develop its own identity. All Corniche model years came with the same three-speed automatic transmission, self-leveling hydraulic suspension, and 6.75-liter L410 OHV V8 engine. However, model years starting at 1977 were given a fuel injection system developed by Bosch, an oil cooling system, improved air conditioning, and an aluminum radiator. The Corniche was able to establish itself as a major player in luxury and performance. Its suspension and disc brake system made the automobile easy to handle, and its powerful engine made the car quick despite its bulky body size.
