2008 Acura RL Review

Overview
What happens when new technologies are created for the sole purpose of providing a rich driving experience the 2008 Acura RL. The precision and grace of the RL are reflected in its elegant aerodynamic styling. Hidden underneath the are RL's sleek hood is the most powerful engine ever in an Acura. With its 3.5L 24 valve V6 VTEC engine the RL is one powerful performer peaking at a fierce 290 horsepower. Super handling all wheel drive increases turning precision by burying the engine torque between all four wheels. The only system that can accelerate the outside rear wheel in a turn enhancing cornering and maneuverability. The RL interior is not only quiet spacious and elegant it was designed to round the driver with a plethora of sophisticated features all within reach. The 2008 RL will not only make you rethink the limits of what a luxury performance sedan should be it will take you there in unabashed glory.
