1988 Rolls Royce Corniche II
These come with a 6.75 V8 making 220 HP while paired to a 3 speed auto.
Please correct me if I wrong with the HP ratings but it's extremely difficult to find that rating... I cant even remember how I found the HP rating for my last 1984 Rolls-Royce Vid LOL...
Funny how Rolls-Royce used a GM key & radio. I believe the transmission is also GM sourced too

Rolls-Royce Ghost Test Drive and Review-- Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
A test drive in a 2010 Rolls-Royce with Chris Moran. Rich people are
different from the rest of us. Their wants and needs involve parameters and
details completely foreign to the proletariat. While we use our vehicles
for transportation, utility and sport, the rich view their automobiles as a
necessary accoutrement to their elevated lifestyles.
For the ultra-wealthy, an appropriate equivalent might be an original
Remington bronze or Picasso painting. And just as they need art in their
mansions, they need beautiful transportation. The 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost
lives up to those lofty requirements by simultaneously being a rolling work
of art and a status symbol beyond reproach.
Like access to the Queen, our time with the Ghost was strictly limited, so
comprehensive driving impressions will have to wait. But what we did get
was a rare glimpse into what the world's richest inhabitants will enjoy
when the Ghost goes on sale this year. And as you'd expect, life is good on
this side of the financial Bell Curve.
In the world of automobiles, there are better vehicles than the 2010
Rolls-Royce Ghost. Some may feature more complex and innovative
engineering. Others may provide more performance. There are certainly more
expensive and exclusive cars.
But none of these facts matter. To those attracted to the newest, smaller
Roller, what matters more is how the Ghost goes about its business of
enhancing a well-off individual's life.
Certainly, the engineering is solid. It's what you'd expect of
Rolls-Royce's caretakers at BMW. Approximately 20-percent of what's used in
the Ghost is related to the current and previous generation BMW 7 Series.
In other words, Rolls-Royce started with premium stock and went no where
Certainly, the 2010 Ghost has more street presence than BMW's flagship. The
differences are so great that most would never know the two were related,
even with the knowledge that the hallowed British marque is under German
The Ghost's lines are artfully drawn, not a bit fussy or over done. They
are simple and elegant, and impart a sense of solidity. Important details
such as the coach doors (otherwise referred to as "suicide" doors by the
unwashed masses) allowed designers to make a single element of the front
and rear door handles. The design simply looks right. Tiny details
reinforce the aura, including the "RR" centers that spin freely within the
wheels so the logo remains upright at all times.
While there's not much to set the Rolls apart at the rear -- those chromed
Exhaust tips are a $3,200 option -- up
front the car's heritage is unmistakable. Set off by the optional $5,000
Silver Satin Bonnet finish, the smaller-than-on-the-Phantom recessed grille
looks appropriately updated and none-too-large given its surroundings. The
strong horizontal shape of the Xenon headlamps (with integrated running
LEDs) accentuates the fenders and provides another familial styling cue. A
single line of turn signal LEDs rest directly below the main lamps, and
standard foglights would apparently be gauche.
And, of course, one cannot overlook the Spirit of Ecstasy. She's been the
brand's mascot since the very beginning, and looks remarkable for being 99
years old. She first adorned a Rolls-Royce in 1911, and has been used in
various poses ever since. To protect against theft and in the event of a
collision with a pedestrian, she quickly retracts into the faux radiator
shell. Find her image in the gallery and look at how lovingly she was
sculpted. If you look close enough, you can see how her young eyes look
eagerly ahead. While setting a good example for all, her eager attitude is
warranted given the performance available from the Ghost.
Based on the twin-turbo V12 from the
fourth-generation E66 7-Series, the Ghost's engine has been stroked from
6.0 to 6.6 liters and produces 563 horsepower at 5,250 rpm with
575 pound-feet of torque at just 1,500 rpm. The gearbox is based on a unit
spreading through BMW's ranks, the excellent ZF eight-speed automatic.
1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow STK 1391.mp4
When the double "R" badge turns a corner, everyone notices it. You cannot
blend a Rolls Royce with the other cars traveling down the street. It only
takes one glimpse and you know you're looking at something different. Rolls
Royce has been the definition of luxury since they first opened there
doors. This Silver Shadow shows the quality that goes into making these
cars. Although this car was produced in 1976 it still looks remarkable. The
two tone color scheme of minty green and black sets things off in
traditional Rolls Royce style. All the chrome is in outstanding condition
along with thick crystal clear glass. The over sized wheels are color
matched, the hood ornament is gleaming, and the grill flashes light off the
front like a chandler. In other words, a Rolls Royce is coming your way.
Inside you wouldn't expect anything less than A1 quality, and that's
exactly what you get. The seats are the same minty green as the paint,
leather of course. From the passenger side to the driver's side everything
is beveled into warm wood grain, along with the steering wheel. The
condition of the leather is outstanding. The same can be said for the head
lining, the door panels and floors. Proper care was issued when taking care
of this car. Sitting inside the Shadow you cannot help but feel safe.
Almost like getting into a German tank, with plush padded leather seating
The Silver Shadow came equip with a hydraulic ride leveling system
developed by Citro�n. When in reverse the car actually leans back, giving
you the proper weight distribution and view of the road behind you. While
driving it kneels forward a bit, keeping the powerful 6.7 liter V8 from
lifting the car's hood off the road.
Independent suspension, disc brakes, power locks, power windows, power
steering, and many more things that we take for granted today, were
standard on the Shadow. The engine is mated up to a numbers matching turbo Hydromatic 400 transmission. This car
runs over instantly and rolls along almost like an ocean wave. It takes
off, it stops, but never abruptly, it just fades away quickly and smoothly.
You cannot hide class. This car actually spent quite a while in a
Washington D.C. museum if you had concerns on the condition. This car is
priced to sell. If you've always wanted a piece of luxury that still stands
up to the cars of today, this is it.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more

Rolls-Royce Limited was a renowned British car and, from 1914 on,
aero-engine manufacturing company founded by Charles Stewart Rolls and
Henry Royce on 15 March 1906 as the result of a partnership formed in 1904.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is a luxury car that was produced in Great
Britain in various forms from 1965 to 1980. It was the first Rolls-Royce to
use a monocoque chassis, a response to concerns that the company was
falling behind in automotive innovation.
Initially, the model was planned to be called "Silver Mist", a natural
progression from its predecessor Silver Cloud. The name was changed to
"Silver Shadow" after realizing that "mist" is the German word for manure,
rubbish, or dirt.
The Shadow featured a 172 hp (128 kW) 6.2 L V8 from 1965 to 1969, and a 189
hp (141 kW) 6.75 L V8 from 1970 to 1980. Both powerplants were coupled to a
General Motors-sourced turbo Hydramatic
400 transmission, except on pre-1970 right-hand-drive models, which used
the same 4-speed automatic gearbox as the Silver Cloud (also sourced from
The car's most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system
licensed from Citroën, with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic
self-levelling suspension. At first, both the front and rear of the car
were controlled by the leveling system; the front levelling was deleted in
1969 as it had been determined that the rear levelling did almost all the
work. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this
arrangement. 1904--06 10 hp 1905--05 15 hp 1905--08 20 hp 1905--06 30 hp
