1992 Rolls-Royce Corniche IV

10k Miles from New, Two-Tone, Showroom Condition

$119,800

Harry's Thoughts

This must be one of the nicest Corniche IVs in existence. Nothing is missing here: it has been cared for by just a couple of long term owners, 10,400 miles from new and one of the only two-tone Corniche IV's known to exist.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a gorgeous example of a 1992 Rolls-Royce Corniche IV that has accumulated 10,400 miles from new.  The present owner has enjoyed this Corniche for the past 18 years.  In white and magnolia two-tone livery, it is simply stunning.  Over the past 17 years of ownership, it has been serviced and maintained by marque specialists as well as Desert European, the local Rolls-Royce dealership in the Palm Springs valley.  This Corniche is in nearly new condition, inside and out, and may be the only two-tone Corniche IV ever made.  Reference: Rolls-Royce Corniche IV (rrsilvershadow.com)

This Corniche was ordered new by Sandra Adelson, the first wife of the late Sheldon Adelson, owner of the Las Vegas Sands empire.  Sandra and Sheldon had amassed an enormous fortune together, becoming two of the most affluent people in the world.  Ms. Adelson ordered the Corniche through Foreign Motors West of Natick, MA.  Ms. Adelson lived in her home in the exclusive Chestnut Hill area outside of Boston.  The Rolls was with Ms. Adelson until her death, when it soon thereafter was bought by its last owner, Mr. Bill Walsh.  Mr. Walsh used the Corniche at his PGA West home in La Quinta, CA as an escape from his 28 dealerships in the Chicagoland area.

This Rolls is one of the 219 Corniche IVs made in the four years from 1992 until 1995.  This is incredibly rare, and more so being in the stunning two-tone paint scheme and having accumulated a mere 10,400 miles since new.  The Corniche IVs benefitted from the latest engineering, including upgrades to the ABS braking system, a four-speed automatic, fully automatic convertible top and many other refinements.

The livery is beautiful in its original white (Code RR.9520090) and magnolia (Code RR.95.20093) with white double coach stripes.  The paint is stunning with its factory finish without orange peel and still looking as though it is new!  The stainless steel and chrome are overall in excellent condition, with only normal use shown via small fine scratches in the stainless steel.  The white Everflex convertible top is in excellent condition and the rear window is clear and also in great condition.  Every part of the car reinforces that this has been faithfully garaged and cared for since new.

The white leather interior is complimented by magnolia piping and magnolia upper dash panel with triple tone wood veneer, including burl walnut, and two other contrasting veneers.  The leather is in overall excellent condition with very minimal wear shown on the drivers seat, which one would expect after 10,400 miles.  The leather is soft and supple and also shows that this Rolls has been loved and cared for.  The magnolia Wilton wool carpets are nearly as new and are covered by the original white mouton sheepskin overlays which are in very nice condition.

The drivers door wood cap railing shows only one of the normal small chips from the seat belt, which we commonly see in Corniches.  The light wool broadcloth headliner and the original white convertible top boot cover are in excellent condition as well.

The engine compartment is in concours presentation condition.  It absolutely looks showroom new.  The Corniche drives beautifully and the 158-point inspection report was completed by our mechanic.

The Rolls is complete with its Owners Manuals, original set of tools and 20 years of service records.  When new, the Corniche IV had a base MSRP over $285,000.

For a couple of data points, the Hagerty Price Guide has the 1993 Corniche IV valued at $120,000 for a No. 1 example.  At auction, the Corniche IV has sold for as much as $360,000.  Reference Bonhams Auction Result

The car was reworked for 1992 as the Corniche IV, presented at the January North American International Auto Show in Detroit. By this time production had moved to Crewe, in preparation for the 1994 closure of Mulliner Park Ward. Mechanically, the IV featured the four-speed GM4L80 automatic transmission rather than the previous three-speed GM400 unit. Adaptive suspension was also introduced. Visually there is nearly no difference between the Corniche III and IV except for a glass rear window replacing the previous plastic unit. The top mechanism was improved, no longer requiring manual latching. CFC-free air conditioning was specified, as were driver and passenger airbags. In October 1992 a 21st anniversary Corniche was presented. 25 cars were built, all finished in Ming Blue with a cream hood with a silver plaque on the dash. In August 1993 engine power was increased by 20 percent.
