The new Rolls-Royce SUV has been leaked online just before its reveal on May 10, showcasing the final production-spec Cullinan’s front. The British brand claims that the ‘high-sided vehicle’ (as they like to call it) delivers a blend of ultra luxury and genuine off-road ability,
the BMW-owned luxury carmaker had also unveiled the car’s pop-out, tailgate-mounted seats and table. Each of the pop-out seats, which are rear-facing and intended for use while the car is not in motion, bears the Rolls-Royce logo and fold back into a compartment in the boot floor.
The image shows a front-on view of the undisguised Rolls-Royce Cullinan gives us a taste of the car’s styling and prodigious height. As we’d gleaned from the spy shots, the front end borrows familiar Rolls-Royce styling themes including the huge, imposing grille and comparatively compact rectangular lights of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. This being the first Rolls-Royce SUV, however, it looks more upright and taller even that the Phantom luxury saloon while the front end appears taller and more agressive.
The name for the new “high-sided vehicle” is taken from the Cullinan diamond; mined in 1905 in South Africa, its 3106 carat weight makes it the largest flawless diamond ever found.
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan will be unveiled on Thursday and the model promises to be one of the most luxurious crossovers ever created. It will ride on the aluminum spaceframe platform and become the first Rolls-Royce vehicle to be offered with all-wheel drive.
