Bentley Corniche

Overview

Saloon,2 doors,4 seats
Rolls Royce Corniche interior

Produced in parallel with the Rolls-Royce variant the Corniche remained in limited production from 1971 until 1984. Only 149 cars were produced at the Willesden, London, factory by Rolls-Royces Mulliner-Park Ward coachbuilding concern.

Built in both 2 door Fixed Head Coupe and Drop Head Coupe form the Corniche did benefit from slightly more power from its 6750cc V8 than the standard T-Type saloon. Eventually the Bentley Corniche was superseded by the identical Continental Convertible which arrived just in time for the Bentley renaissance of the late 1980s.
