Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV breaks cover

Why did we ever expect the Rolls-Royce Cullinan to look like anything other than a Phantom on a lift kit, minus the trunk? Getting in to the back is via typically Rolls-Royce rear-hinged coach doors that, like the front doors, clamp over the sills to prevent you getting dirty as you get in and out.

Powering the Cullinan is a completely reworked iteration of the 6.75-litre, twin-turbocharged V12, which produces 571hp and 850Nm of torque.

Named after a 3,106-carat jewel extracted from a South African mine in 1905, the Cullinan represents the first time Rolls-Royce has tried its hand at building an SUV, or as the company likes to put it, the first time it has built an "all-terrain, high-bodied car" that makes luxury travel "effortless, everywhere".

Finished in what seems to be a shade of red, the upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV features a front inspired from the new Phantom, replete with the chrome finished grille with vertical slats, the signature Spirit of Ecstasy adorned above and laser headlamps.

Well, then. If a gang of modern art thieves-or Indiana Jones-needs a new SUV, the Cullinan awaits. The design, the brand claims, nods to an era in which occupants carried their luggage on the outside of the vehicle.

China vice premier to visit U.S. for more trade talks
China's communist leaders have countered by outlining $50 billion in USA goods that they would target with retaliatory duties. However, last week China said "big differences" remained between the two sides after the first round of talks.

Speaking of which, the feature we normally call a "tailgate" is called "the Clasp" on the Cullinan, a reference to when drivers put luggage on the outside of the vehicle.

The rear comes with either a folding bench seat or two separate pilot's chairs.

The automaker has long crowed about the Phantom's "magic carpet ride", but the Cullinan's self-leveling and electronically controlled air suspension goes one better when in Off-Road mode: An air compressor actively extends the struts to keep the wheels on the ground. Rolls-Royce can scale it to the size and weight requirements of its different models, so it can be used across the range, and says it is the reason Rolls-Royce cars deliver impeccable ride, acoustic, and seat comfort, exterior presence, interior space, and usability. They react to provide information the driver might need.

Behind the back thrones, the cargo floor normally sits lower than the tops of the rear seat cushions. The standard equipment includes night vision system, a four-camera view system with panoramic view, all-round visibility, and helicopter view, collision warning, cross-traffic warning, lane departure and lane change warnings, WiFi hotspot, and many more. It also has a wading depth of 540mm.

Previously, the manufacturer has shared images of the vehicle being put through its paces on challenging terrains ranging from the desert to snow tracks.
