History of the Rolls Royce Corniche

The Corniche was launched in 1971 as Rolls-Royce’s coupe version of the Silver Shadow. Having even more lavish levels of equipment, the Corniche was a superior car to the saloon on which it was based. Hand built by Mulliner Park Ward, the Rolls Royce Corniche was Britain’s most expensive car at the time. The price was about half as much again as the Silver Shadow.

Only the very finest materials were used including Wilton carpeting, Connolly hide and the best burr walnut veneers. Each car is said to have taken some six months to produce. The result was a level of quality and opulence that surpassed that of the saloons.

Our Rolls Royce hire car is, of course, adorned by the famous Rolls Royce ‘Spirit of Ecstasy bonnet ornament, one of the most well-known motor car mascots in the world. The inspiration for this mascot was said to be a beautiful young woman who did not have the social status which might have permitted her to marry the man (Lord Montagu) with whom she had fallen in love.

The Rolls-Royce Corniche was produced in both coupé and convertible form from 1971 to 1995. The name ‘Corniche’ stems from the originally French and Italian term for a coastal road, especially along the face of a cliff.

It was designed by John Blatchley, who also worked on the Silver Shadow, Silver Cloud and Bentley R-type. The Corniche was an exclusive car, with only 1,090 coupes and 3,239 convertibles being made before the Corniche II commenced production in 1988.

The Corniche convertible was a massive hit, and was bought by the rich and famous. Celebrities such as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Tom Jones and Frank Sinatra all owned one. According to The Classic Car Show it is ‘one of the sexiest classic convertibles around.
