The 1st gen RL was a rebadged Honda Legend.

The name was made to sound more “Luxury” like BMW and Mercedes.

3.5 RL sounded kinda bland.  (I could swear there is a 2.5 RL aswell).

Transverse 3.5 lt engine with FWD as the platform.

The other change was that there was no more Coupe version.

 Slammed and blacked out headlights… VIP stylish!

Even in Anime!
