My colleagues mostly drove this ark with $376,090 worth of respect, and hence the car's cushiness and quirky controls impressed them most.

CSABA CSEREThe Corniche has paint so smooth and shiny that you can use it as a shaving mirror.

Rolls-Royce Corniche V
This engine was renowned for it's monstrous torque, 544 ft lbs at 2,100 rpm.
It used styling cues from the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph, but was built on the Bentley Azure chassis with its 6.75 liter V8.

Car & Driver News
The Corniche is powered by the 6.75-liter, 325-horsepower V-8, expected to propel it to 60 mph in eight seconds, presumably slowed somewhat by the massive curb weight of just over three tons.
Rolls expects to sell just 100 in the U.S., a third of those to well-heeled women.
