ROLLS ROYCE SILVER SHADOW
Dignity and elegance are evident in the Silver Shadow, the standard saloon model in the Rolls-Royce range. Powered by a light-alloy V8 engine of outstanding smoothness and quiet running, the four-door model is available with both normal and long wheelbases. Trim and finish are the envy of the automotive world, and in spite of their high prices, there is a long waiting list for every Rolls-Royce. The Bentley follows the same general design and is made in the same Crewe works. Both cars have a unitary body which is considered to be one of the most rigid in production anywhere.
ROLLS ROYCE CORNICHE
Top model of the world's most exclusive marque, the Corniche Convertible (illustrated) with shapely coachwork by Mulliner-Park Ward, is furnished like a drawing room. Rolls-Royce consider it infra-dig to discuss engine power-outputs, but the V8 of the Corniche has more power than the Silver Shadow, and the car is good for 120 m.p.h. Transmission is automatic, and the suspension self-levelling. The Corniche was first introduced in 1971 but since then has received many suspension modifications. There is also a two-door saloon model by the same coachbuilder.
