These spy shots show a near final version of the Rolls Royce Corniche convertible that's based on the 100 EX Concept that garnered rave reviews at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. Two design elements on this mule are of particular interest. The first is that the production model will retain the rear-hinged doors of the concept (follow the link for additional pics that show the door in action). The second is the light fixtures and turn signals up front, which are composed of a pair of LED ovals situated above single, round lamps. Winding Road's spy photographer reports that the turn indicators are located within those LED ovals, while the ovals themselves and the lamps provide ample illumination of lesser mortals clogging the road ahead.
The Corniche rides on a slightly shortened Phantom platform (3.9 inches shorter) and uses that car's 6.75L V12 for its earnest motivation. Perhaps we'll rendezvous with the production version at the Paris Motor Show in September.

      I saw this car in production form in South Beach, on Ocean drive this past march... how is that possible?

      I'm surprised that BMW chose a cloth top over a retractable hardtop, like MB on the SL's. But then again, this is SUPPOSED to be a British car, not a German one.......

      That's ok.....just look at the source...blue collar workers who buy Chevrolets could never afford a Rolls Royce anyway, and would never have the appreciation for the craftsmanship.... i have 2 RRs...just keep em commin......
