RL Information from Autoexpress

Thanks to TOV reader Hmpower for emailing us about this.

Autoexpress has pictures of the Legend/RL caught on the Nürburgring. The pictures are on their printed edition for now only. It's a good sign that the car is being tested on the Nurburgring because it shows that Honda wants to make sure the new car can handle and perform well.

From the article: "Wider and longer than an Accord, the new model will get the 3.5-litre V6 engine first seen in the Dual Note supercar concept shown at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show. With 300bhp, 320Nm of torque and four-wheel drive, it will have the muscle to take on the most powerful of rivals. A five-speed auto gearbox will be standard, with sequential changes available via steering wheel-mounted buttons. To improve fuel economy, the engine will get Variable Cylinder Management, which shuts down three of the six cylinders when cruising.

The car will be launched in Japan in October next year, and will arrive in Britain in 2005. A hybrid version will be introduced at a later stage, using technology showcased in the Civic IMA."
