The Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV has been in the works for more than two years now and has already gone ahead with its much publicised final phase of testing. The first-ever SUV from the British luxury marque is all set to be unveiled on 10 May.
Built on the new lightweight aluminium-based platform that also underpins the Phantom VIII, Rolls-Royce describes the Cullinan as an ‘all-terrain high-sided vehicle’. We hope it gets the signature Rolls coach-doors because it does get the Parthenon-like grille up front and the long hood. It also gets the Range-Rover style angular sloped D-pillar and the tail lamps should match the Rolls signature.
It will certainly be opulent and luxurious in trademark RR fashion on the inside and should ideally be powered by the 6.75-litre V12. While this powertrain is quite known, the all-wheel drive element is entirely new and has been co-developed with help from its holding company – BMW.
