Rolls-Royce Corniche IV

Rolls-Royce Corniche IV, 1992
Rolls-Royce Corniche IV, 1992, #SCAZD202D2NCX40013. The Corniche IV (model year 1993 deliveries commencing from August 1992) was enhanced by modern features like CFC-free air conditioning system and airbags for driver and front passenger.

Given the fact that the first of the convertibles made its appearance in 1967 as a derivation from the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow the shape found by the design team then had extremely well stood the test of time. The R-R Corniche IV was introduced in 1993. A new hood made an end once and for all to soft rearlights being scratched because now a solution had been found to fit a genuine glass rear light. The fixing mechanism was a more advanced one too locking the hood automatically to the windscreen frame which operation previously had asked for manual action. - It is well worth noting here that the designers in their research for the best solution even had inspected the mechanism on landaulette built by Hooper in 1954. A final series of 25 specially equipped Rolls-Royce Corniche S was the last string to the bow.
