ROLLS ROYCE SILVER SHADOW
  Saloon: £10,993
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
  Saloon: £14,252
  Convertible: £14,884
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.
