Rolls-Royce SUV To Arrive In 2018

rolls royce suv to arrive in 2018

Just like Volkswagen’s Bentley and Audi’s Lamborghini, BMW’s Rolls-Royce is entering the premium SUV game, ready to ferry oil-rich princes and the hardest of Wall Street’s power lords to their appointed rounds.

Autobild reports the premium SUV — currently dubbed the Cullinan, whose namesake comes from the 3,000-carat diamond — will debut in 2018, and will be priced between the Ghost and the Phantom at €275,000 ($340,000 USD).

Power for the aluminum SUV is expected to come from 6.6-liter V12, which may be directed through the all-wheel drive system found in the BMW 7 Series to the wheel/tire combo from the upcoming X7. A PHEV variant of the Cullinan is also in consideration.

As for where the SUV will turn up, the United States and the Middle East are potential markets.

    estate-wagon , shooting-brake ? - what are you talking about ?:) SUV from RR (big & lux) is not such a bad idea like SUV from 'sportier' Bentley (still big-lux).. But SUV from Maserati, Alfa or Lambo would be a pure $ellout and nouveau-riche indulging excersize .. Ferrari is next.. .. and don't forget you should blame Por$che for this $ellout .. ... [.. and don't forget that more 'cool cars' for Wall-Street-golden-boys means less .. poor Chevys (and rather Sparks/Cruzes than Corvettes..) for you .. ] ... [ and yes, Chrysler should build a 300C coupe ... and cabrio.. ]

    I'm just glad to know the Phantom will remain at the top of the price ladder. That way all the people that buy these will still have to deal with an inferiority complex from everyone knowing the guy in the Phantom spent more $ on his car.

    2018? *sigh* Then I guess a Bentley SUV will have to do, because I just can't wait until 2018

    "Autobild reports the premium SUV — currently dubbed the Cullinan, whose namesake comes from the 3,000-carat diamond — will debut in 2018..." Ehose namesake _is_, or whose _name_ comes.
