Named after the French and Italian worlds for the coastal roads that run along the face of a cliff, particularly the Grande Corniche that overlooks Monaco from the French Riviera, the Rolls-Royce Corniche made its debut in 1971. With its release, the Rolls-Royce company fulfilled a twenty-year-old unfinished project. a prototype, which undertook over fifteen thousand miles of endurance testing across Europe, was developed under the name Corniche in 1939. However, said prototype was blown up by an axis bomb while awaiting shipment to England in Normandy. The name was registered, but the onset of World War II prevented further production.
When the model actually came to be, it sported the standard Rolls-Royce V8 engine with aluminum cylinder heads, cast iron wet cylinder liners, and an aluminum-silicon alloy block. Standard three-speed automatic transmission sourced from General Motors was implemented, and a hydraulic self-leveling system augmented the four-wheel independent suspension. Available in both a coupe and a convertible, the Rolls-Royce Corniche represented some of the best the brand had to offer. For years, the name was synonymous with performance, luxury, and style, constantly named one of the best drives in the world.
