2000 ROLLS-ROYCE CORNICHE V CONVERTIBLE #SCAZK29E1YCX68096. (Stock #4093.) The Corniche was introduced by Rolls-Royce in 1971 as an ultra-luxurious coachbuilt, 2-door, 4-passenger model of an already iconic and eclectic breed of automobile. The Corniche had many mechanical and some relatively modest cosmetic changes over the years through Series 1 through 4, and, in 2000, the Corniche V was introduced. Based on the same theme as the earlier cars, but with an entirely new design, this was, at the time, the most expensive vehicle offered by Rolls-Royce, offered then at a cost of $359,900. The car is powered by the same basic 6.75 litre, V-8 engine as the earlier series of the Corniche, but the new car's engine was now turbocharged, produced 544 lb-ft of torque and provided a top speed for the 6800 pound car of 135 miles per hour. With a cabin fitted with Connolly hide seemingly everywhere, Wilton wool carpets under foot and a gorgeous display of burl walnut on the facia and cabin trim, the Corniche V was completely hand built and carries a flavor of a much earlier era while incorporating the best of modern technology. Just 374 of these fabulous automobiles were built and the series ended in August, 2002. It was the last series of Rolls-Royce to be built at the famous plant in Crewe, England. Our car, finished in gorgeous Georgian Silver with light grey leather piped in dark blue, dark blue interior trim, carpets, Mouton carpet overlays and a matching convertible top, has spent most of its life in Florida prior to being purchased in 2013 by a collector/enthusiast customer of ours in Tuxedo Park, New York. Mileage at that time was 13,512. The car reflects exceptional care and limited use over the years and remains in superb condition throughout. Original manuals, tools and service records accompany the car. Current mileage is 15,782.SOD!
