We are delighted to be offering this Rolls-Royce Corniche, a car that was once owned by one of the wealthiest individuals in the world, Adnan Khashoggi. This particular model was delivered to Eaton Square on the 10th of April 1974 and was bought for his wife, Mrs. S.A. Khashoggi. The Corniche was part of the Khashoggi collection, which included a personal Boeing 747 and the largest yacht in the world. This car is a testament to the extravagance and excess that was emblematic of success in its day.

After it left Khashoggi’s ownership, the car was exported to the US and later returned to the UK in 1996. It was subsequently purchased by renowned motoring journalist and enthusiast Quentin Wilson. The Rolls-Royce Corniche is a stunning example of classic British luxury, with its sleek lines and elegant design. It is a car that exudes power and opulence, and its ownership history adds to its allure.

The Corniche has a storied past, and Mrs. Khashoggi was famously chauffeured around London during her $1 billion divorce case in this very car. The Corniche has a timeless appeal and is a perfect example of the luxury and excess that defined the 1970s.

In recent years, the car has been part of a large private collection of Rolls-Royce and Bentley vehicles, where it has been well-maintained by specialists who have been instructed to not spare any expense to ensure its appropriate upkeep. With its return to the UK, the Corniche has been kept in excellent condition and is now ready for a new owner to enjoy. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of automotive history that has been meticulously cared for and is ready to hit the road in style.
