Rolls-Royce Debuts Project Cullinan's Production Body

It is no secret that Rolls-Royce has been working on an SUV or “all-terrain, high-sided vehicle.” But the only pictures we have seen of it is a Phantom mule with a raised ride height. That changed today.

Rolls-Royce released a new picture showing off the latest Project Cullinan test mule and to our eyes, it looks like a raised Phantom wagon. The key Rolls details are here with large waterfall grille and LED headlights. There appears to be large intakes in the front bumper, along with chiseled fenders to give the vehicle some agression.

“This is an incredibly exciting moment in the development of Project Cullinan both for Rolls-Royce and for the patrons of luxury that follow us around the world. Bringing together the new four-wheel drive system and the new ‘architecture of luxury’ for the first time sets us on the road to creating a truly authentic Rolls-Royce which, like its forebears, will reset the standard by which all other luxury goods are judged,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Project Cullinan is an important vehicle for Rolls-Royce as it will be one of the first vehicles for the brand to debut a new aluminum platform that will underpin future models. It is expected that the production version of Project Cullinan, along with its actual name will be revealed sometime late next yeat.
