Further details and special features

Probably the Corniche IV could not be delivered with a two-tone paint scheme. Anyhow, I didn't discover one in all these years.

In 1992 (and 1993) 25 Anniversary examples were made by the occasion of the 21 years of existence of the Corniche convertible. These Anniversaries all have the colour Ming Blue with cream-coloured leather hood and magnolia upholstery. They can be recognised by the special Anniversary wheel covers.

A Corniche IV can't be recognised by outer distinguishing marks with regard to a Corniche III. But there were some versions of aluminium wheels.

From 1994 the electrical convertible top was delivered with a glass rear window that could be heatened.
