Characteristics and peculiarities

Backgrounds of this model
- The Rolls-Royce Corniche Final Series is a limited edition of the Rolls-Royce Corniche to commemorate the end of the production of the Corniche. The Rolls-Royce production in Crewe lasted from 1946 up to and including 2002, 56 years in total. 56 Copies of the Corniche Final Series were planned to be manufactured. At last 45 copies were built.
- The very last Rolls-Royce Corniche rolled off the assembly line on August 12, 2002. This was the very last Rolls-Royce to be made at the Crewe plant before it was turned over entirely to the production of Bentley models.
- The last ever Crewe built Rolls-Royce engine car has remained the property of the Crewe factory. The unique Silver Ghost coloured convertible Rolls-Royce Corniche has a specially designed interior, based on that of the famous 1907 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, which is owned by the Crewe factory too.

General characteristics
- Special wood trim with inlayed "Spririt of Ecstasy"-motif.
- Numbered commemorative plaque on the centre console.
- Red RR-badges on the grille and the boot lid.
- "Spririt of Ecstasy"-motif on the hub caps.
- Re-styled, chromed Azure alloy.
- Chromed mirrors.
- A badge on the front fenders with the text: "Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Crewe, England", together with the British flag.
