Soft-top Rolls’ hot test caught on video
6 September 2006

Before you put in that order for the new £225,000 Bentley Azure, you might want to have a look at this.

Our exclusive video footage shows the new Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible undergoing hot-weather testing in California, ahead of its introduction next month.

Based on the Phantom limousine, the Corniche is shorter and sleeker, but this is still not a car for shrinking violets, with a huge grille and long, motor-powered rear-opening doors that are bound to grab attention.

Beneath its elegant canvas hood, the Corniche is a proper four-seater, with a suitably sybaritic cabin to cosset its wealthy occupants – the car is expected to cost £250,000, around the same as its saloon sibling.
