Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.5) based on 252 votes
A delightful. formal and upright limousine. which is spacious and tall. with a large sliding sunroof in the rear compartment. which is a rare and desirable feature. The car is very sound. clean and tidy. and is very respectable cosmetically. With decent paintwork and good leather interior. The driving experience is lovely. being smooth and comfortable. with the driving position giving a commanding view of the road. and somehow promotes a very relaxed attitude. Ideal for wedding hire use. but would also make a great car for family outings. etc. MoT tested until April 2014.

Chassis No. GWN78. Reg No. DLF 739. £35. 00.
