The Rolls -Royce Corniche is a two-door, four seater luxury car with a cabriolet body made in the United Kingdom from 2000-2002. Rolls-Royce’s flagship car, it was the fifth model to bear the Corniche name on its debut in January 2000. At the time of its release, it was the most expensive vehicle offered by Rolls-Royce with a base price of $359,900. Styling cues were taken from the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph sedan, but it shares little mechanically with that BMW-engined car. Instead, the Corniche’s body was set onto the older platform used for the similarly-styled Bentley Azure, making it the first and only Rolls-Royce descended from a Bentley rather than the other way around.
The 2000-2002 is powered by a 325 hp 6.75 L turbocharged V-8. The Corniche engine is capable of providing 738-m of torque at 2,100 rpm. The car is operated via a four-speed automatic transmission. It has a top speed of 135 mph and 0-60 acceleration in eight seconds. The convertible, weighing 6,836 pounds, was built more for comfort than for speed. The Corniche came outfitted with every luxury and refinement characteristic of a Rolls-Royce. The car has a Connolly Leather interior. Wilton wool carpets, chrome gauges and a wide choice of exotic wood trims. Dual automatic temperature control, a six-disc CD changer, automatic headlamps and automatic ride control are standard.
The Corniche was the only new Rolls-Royce developed under Volkswagen’s ownership, before the marque was passed to BMW in 2003. All Corniches were completely hand-built. The car was considered a slightly softer, and even more exclusive, version of the Bentley Azure. The very last Roll-Royce Corniche rolled off the assembly line on August 30, 2002. This was the very last Rolls-Royce to be made at the Crewe plant before it was turned over entirely to the production of Bentley models. Only 375 fifth-generation Corniches were ever built, making it the most sought after pre-owned Rolls-Royce Corniche.
This Rolls-Royce Corniche is pristine and flawless with very low mileage. Originally purchased here in Newport Beach and all mileage is local mileage. The car has always been garaged.
