Bentley is working on their very first SUV with production to start in 2016 so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Rolls-Royce has also reportedly started work on their luxury SUV/Crossover.
According to Autobild the luxury SUV is already under development and codenamed “Cullinan” after the world’s largest diamond.
This new model is expected to debut in late 2018, positioned between the Ghost and Phantom with prices expected to start form around £220,000. Annual production target is 2000 units with the big part expected to come from clients in the Middle East.
Details are limited, but the model is likely to use different components from the upcoming X7 and new 7 Series. Engine options are rumoured to include a V12 and a plug-in hybrid variant.
