Rolls-Royce Releases First Images of Project Cullinan SUV in Its Real Centeng
Rolls-Royce certainly can be drawing out the launch of its Project Cullinan SUV. The idea of a high-riding Roller has been tossed around for some time, with Rolls-Royce decrying the notion for years before finally, in early 2015, confirming its intention to build an SUV. Then an image of a funky, bewinged, Phantom-based mule (pictured below) was released to prove development was underway. today, Rolls-Royce has released the best look yet at Project Cullinan, from the form of two images in which show the vehicle in a proper SUV Centeng. To be fair, unlike many hyped as well as long-awaited projects (cough*Dr. Dre*cough*Detox), Rolls actually can be showing signs of progress toward a finished product.
Rolls refers to Project Cullinan as an “all-terrain, high-sided vehicle,” as well as This particular will be the first vehicle to feature the lightweight all-aluminum architecture in which will underpin all of the brand’s future products. The first spoiler-clad prototype was used to test the completely new suspension’s manners on a variety of road surfaces—”suspension throw” as well as “high-bodied stability” were specifically mentioned as metrics. yet engineers can only do so much for a platform without the real Centeng as well as shape. To in which end, This particular completely new prototype can be beginning testing as well as will head to the Arctic Circle at the end of This particular month to be subjected to extreme cold-weather trials. This particular will then be off to the Middle East to get a taste of the weather at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Based on these two photos of the camo’d vehicle, the vehicle looks to be higher, bigger, as well as boxier than our initial rendering, as well as there can be no doubt there’s more of R-R’s trademark grille hiding behind the disguise. This particular seems as if the SUV will carry forward more of the Phantom’s look versus in which of the slightly curvier Ghost, which could mean the next-generation Phantom—due soon after the VII recently ended its legendary run—might look similar to the previous Phantom. The Cullinan SUV can be likely to offer both V-12 as well as hybrid powertrain options, as well as This particular can be likely to slide into the garages of the global elite in late 2018. (After many more teasers, of course.)
