Corniche number one under the hammer at Silverstone

Published 24 April 2014

The first example of the last Rolls-Royce model to be built at the Crewe factory goes under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions on 24 May. Estimated at £95,000-105,000, chassis number 001, was purchased by the current owner in 2001.

Its first owner was Rolls-Royce who are believed to have used the car for testing and development, along with promotional marketing of the new model. A significant motorcar in the history of the marque, it was the final model to be developed at the original Crewe factory when the company was still independently owned. 

Fully maintained as per Rolls Royce factory requirements, the first five stamps in the service book were completed by Rolls Royce at Crewe and the total mileage of the car today is 24,926. The car comes with a substantial history, and also the official sales brochure from Rolls Royce featuring the car itself.
