RML Short Wheelbase First 3 Production Cars

Author: RML Group
Published On: 22 March 2023

Exciting times for RML’s Short Wheelbase team. Here are the first three production SWBs during build, a process which takes around nine months from start to finish.

These images reveal how each car evolves from a bare, powder-coated chassis (in this case fitted with the rear half of its two-piece, naked carbonfibre body), through to a complete car, represented here by our pre-production prototype, Car Zero).

The second car in line has progressed substantially from the first, with both sections of its primed body in place. And the most complete car here, which will be delivered to its customer in late April, has been in paint, and is now awaiting engine and powertrain installation, its bespoke exterior and interior trim, and a full wiring loom.

“Each Short Wheelbase is hand-built,” said Michael Mallock, RML’s CEO. “But we also use the most advanced technology to make sure that the quality of its build meets the very highest levels. All parts are laser-cut to minimise deviation from specification, and the jig we use only allows a maximum 0.25mm tolerance, meaning that all 30 cars will be produced to a consistently high standard.”
