Backgrounds of this model
– The Rolls-Royce Corniche is the first Rolls-Royce convertible after the production of the Rolls-Royce Corniche IV was terminated at the end of model year 1995.
– Sometimes the model is called “Rolls-Royce Corniche V”, refering to the fifth generation of the Corniche, but that name is not officially granted by the factory.
– The Rolls-Royce Corniche’s body was set onto the platform used for the similarly-styled Bentley Azure, making it the first and last Rolls-Royce descended from a Bentley rather than the other way around.
– The Rolls-Royce Corniche has no predecessor or successor but is a model besides already existing models.
– 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 Corniche was powered by 6750 cc turbocharged V8, providing 738 Nm at 2100 rpm.
– Length: 541 cm
– Width: 206 cm
– Height: 148 cm
– Acceleration 0 – 100 km/h: 8.2 seconds
– Top speed: 220 km/h
This particular 2001 Corniche V has a “Peacock” exterior over a “Magnolia Hide” leather interior, which is a subtle colour combination that is truly fitting for a car of this calibre.
It has clearly been well preserved throughout its entire life, as the odometer shows only 32,753 kilometres from new.
Only 291 LHD cars where produced; the Corniche V sits as a fantastic investment opportunity, with a value set to rise in the coming years.
