ROLLS-ROYCE Corniche II
The Corniche lived on beyond the Silver Shadow saloon on which it was based, surviving well into the Silver Spirit era. Although coupés were discontinued in 1982, the convertibles were updated enough for 1987 to justify a small change of name to Corniche II. Alloy and rubber bumpers replaced the chrome items and fuel-injection became standard for all markets, as did ABS brakes. Subsequent incarnations remained largely unchanged: 1989’s Corniche III had colour-coded bumpers and better suspension while the end-of-the-line Corniche S in 1995 incorporated a turbocharger.
