Product Overview

Rolls-Royce Corniche V is a full-size luxury convertible in production from 2000 to 2002. It was powered by a turbocharged Rolls-Royce V8 engine that displaced 6.75 liters paired to GM's 4L80-E 4-speed automatic transmission.
Based on the Silver Seraph, the Mk5 Corniche is the RR-equivalent of Bentley Azure. It is one of the largest modern convertibles and was the most luxurious when it entered production in 2000.
The Corniche V was the only Rolls-Royce developed under VW's ownership. Its production ended abruptly as the brand was sold to BMW.
