Rolls Royce didn't change the Corniche's body for ages. It's a car to cruise gently in - does about 120mph but rolls like nobody's business on cornering.
If you talk about class, it's unmatched.

Wheels are screwed up - has the Bentley alloys - does not match the car in my humble opinion

Gosh, These unorganised garages (wait even Ichibaan sucks) are really terrible.

I had seen this car at a workshop in Worli, the interior comfort is truly mindblowing.

Just last month i seen a Rolls Royce in Juhu without a hood. At the rear the guy had put 2-3 extra "RR" radium stickers next to the number plate. Why, Why??? When you have a Rolls Royce, why do you need to put any extra stuff on it to show its a Rolls Royce. Its the same with Bhushans 355. He's put lots of extra "prancing horses" on the car. Thats what I hate.

Thats a pre 70's corniche convertible. Series 1. bentley alloys came standard after 1990 in US spec RRs with RR logo. Tyres are way too thin for the car. Std size is 275/80/15 AVON Radials
