The Rolls-Royce Corniche was a development of the Mulliner Park Ward two-door versions of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow1. The Corniche was available as a coupé or convertible and used the standard Rolls-Royce V8 engine with an aluminum-silicon alloy block and aluminum cylinder heads with cast iron wet cylinder liners1. The car was powered by a 6.75 L L410 OHV V8 engine1. The bore was 4.1 in (104.1 mm) and the stroke was 3.9 in (99.1 mm) for a total of 6.75 L (6,750 cc/411 cu in)1. Four-wheel disc brakes were specified, with ventilated discs added for 19721. The car originally used a 119.75 in (3,042 mm) wheelbase. This was extended to 120 in (3,048 mm) in 1974 and 120.5 in (3,061 mm) in 19791.
