Rolls-Royce Corniche 1969-1993
&
Bentley Continental / T2 Convertible 1969-1993


Identically constructed:
In 1968/69 the Rolls-Royce Corniche appeared also as Bentley T2 Convertible.
From 1971 it was called Bentley Continental Convertible.

These Bentley versions of the Rolls-Royce were, incidentally, more expensive than the RR models!
This created the saying:
"Those who drive Rolls-Royce have money. If you drive Bentley, you do not need it any more."
(Consul Weyer on the contemporary question of the difference between Rolls-Royce and Bentley).
Until the end of the 90s you were almost incognito on the road with a Bentley "in this our country". The car attracted little attention. The overwhelming majority of the audience knew nothing about the name Bentley. So to speak, a stealth Rolls-Royce. That changed only when VW and BMW were fighting for the brand and Bentley finally decoupled from RR landed at VW. In 2003, the Continental GT appeared with a refined VW Phaeton technology and in 2006 the GTC Convertible.
At the latest, Bentley became a super-luxury brand.

The older models, like the T2 / Continental Convertible described here, are still often not recognized as Bentley and are taken for e.g. a Jaguar(?). Though these ONES are the Bentleys - and not these VW derivatives!
Beyond the fact that the GT/GTC as a German interpretation, how an English luxury car should be like, is really fantastically processed, it also represent the entire appearance of the Bentley brand quite convincingly.

In contrast to the sister model Bentley Continental, you can attract attention with the Rolls. Strangely, however, the envy factor was much bigger. Perhaps it is also because the Rolls is now more associated with "oldtimer" than as a symbol of wealth.

The answer to the question, how high is the consumption of the car, seems to be of utmost interest. For this I had three answers in my Bentley T2 Convertible times:

The first was a bit malicious:
"I don’t know. Anyone who asks this question can not afford it!"

The second version:
"Ten liters." Pause. "But I have no idea, how far I can get."

Number three:
"Wrong question. The right question is whether the tank is big enough.
And there I can soothe you, there are 140 liters."

The Bentley as well as the Rolls have swallowed much less than most of today's popular SUVs, because of the fundamentally reserved but very speedy driving (which makes him super-safe!). In addition, the Rolls-Royce Corniche - as well as its sister model the Bentley T2 Convertible/ Continental - is an eco-car in a completely original sense:
They are made of metal, wood, leather, latex, jute, felt ..., a little bit of bakelite, they do not tolerate highly energetic refined and dangerous ultra-oils etc.
Everything is easy to recycle.

But you do not need that at all:
Once built, they hold at least fifty years, can be inherited a few times ... An almost unbeatable eco-balance - seriously calculated as a total balance, without the mad scrapping virus.

Ergo:
Drive the Bentley Continental as well as the RR Corniche with an entirely good eco-conscience!
