How would you personalise your RML Short Wheelbase?
Designer Jonathan Bowen is keen to show customers the potential for ordering a truly bespoke Short Wheelbase: “We have a variety of standard exterior colours and interior trims to choose from, but with some really stunning options and accessories, too. We can also take it a stage further and let customers select OEM exterior colours that don’t appear on our list, and with each combination, the car takes on a different character – it’s fascinating to see as a designer!”
Inspiring owners’ to be creative, Jonathan has crafted three different themes for the Short Wheelbase, each of which can be combined with one of ten suggested ‘styles’ that illustrate a bandwidth of aesthetics to fire customers’ imaginations:
Classic offers a variety of sophisticated metallic exterior colours, combined with machined metalwork, polished finish surfacing and the choice of adding or deleting the front and rear bumpers, which would have been a popular choice for owners of performance GT cars back in the day.
Competizione is, as the name suggests, a more purposeful look, with a harder edge and a combination of strong colour and livery options, as well as number roundels and different designs of racing stripes over, or across the car.
Modern brings together the latest exterior hues, mixed with satin-finished metalwork and inside, a minimalist seat design.
But these are merely ‘platforms’ for greater personalisation. Love Italian motorsport from the classic era? Then go with a Red body, with white and blue racing stripes, gold-coloured wheel rims and a tan leather trim. Something more subtle, yet hardcore? Try Gunmetal paintwork, black rims with red calipers and a dark-red leather upholstery inside.
In the meantime, RML’s ‘Car Zero’ prototype SWB (pictured), with its Dark Blue exterior, satin chrome highlights and tan and black interior will be making a rather special journey by air very soon. More news to follow…
