It is a car that takes personalisation to a new level, where the vehicle is a canvas on which you can paint your vision. Its extended wheelbase translates into more interior space, offering 2 inches (50mm) more inthe front and a remarkable 8 inches (200mm) in the rear.The RL retains the classic Arnage profile whilst offering even more palatial comfort for all on board but, make no mistake, this is not an ocean liner,this is a car to drive in the fine tradition of generations of sporting saloons fronted by the 'Flying B'.The turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine, harnessed by a creamy smoothautomatic gearbox, makes this an experience impossible to miss.
