2012 RUF RXL

The RXL was developed by RUF to satisfy drivers that the found the standard production Porsche Panamera lacking in interior space.

The RXL front bumper is uniquely RUF creating an aggressive front profile. The light weight wheels are iconic five-spoke RUF and are 22 inches in diameter. The extended wheelbase totals an additional 400 millimetres, 250 millimetres at the B‑pillar and 150 millimetres at the rear door, distinguishing it from the standard sedan.

The luxurious interior coddles both driver and passengers with special leather and includes a foldable multipurpose table.
