Rolls-Royce Corniche II
Convertible,2 doors,5 seats
Saloon,2 doors,5 seats
As the Silver Shadow became the Silver Shadow II the Corniche followed suit and became known as the Corniche II. As with the
Shadow II the Corniche gained rack and pinion steering to improve steering feel and handling, an area that the earlier model often received criticism.
Available as a convertible or as a 2 door fixed head coupe (as on the earlier Corniche), again the bodies were hand made by Mulliner Park Ward from aluminum, the fixed head coupe was discontinued after 1980. Main recognition points are the one piece bumpers, deeper radiator shell and a Chin spoiler. Inside, the car now had the revised Shadow II facia and split level, automatic air-conditioning.
Corniche production lasted into the 1990s and mechanical developments followed the Spirit saloon range (i.e. active ride on very late cars).
