With all the recent attention that the Bentley Bentayga received it will be interesting to see what sort of hype Rolls-Royce’s planned SUV creates.
Although it’s still a few years away from the final version, Remco Meulendijk of RM Design has imagined what it might look like. The Rolls-Royce SUV is currently known under its code name, Cullinan, in reference to the largest gem-quality diamond ever found (discovered right here in SA).
Meulendijk’s take on the upcoming Cullinan includes the familiar Rolls front facia with imposing grille, the famous “Flying Lady” and modern headlights. The side profile is reminiscent of the Range Rover and the rear has a clean, simplifies look.
It’s likely that the Rolls-Royce Cullinan will be powered by a modified version of the flagship’s 6.8-liter V12, along with a possible hybrid.
The model is expected to be introduced in 2018 and priced from around £250 000 to £280 000 (R5 743 722 to R6 432 968 at the current exchange rate).
