Beginning this summer, potential customers can view upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUVs in a special closed-door event. Rolls-Royce likes to say “high-end vehicles” at least a few tests at least in the Nürburgring and even the streets of California.
With Cullinan’s lineup, car makers are hoping to drive sales of more than 5,000 units a year, taking into account the recent surge in SUV sales, which figure should be easily achievable and Rolls sold 4,011 units in 2016.
Unlike Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus, which share the same platform as the Audi Q7, Ceiling will build a new phantom for automakers on customized aluminum-intensive platforms.
Torsten Mueller-Oetvos, chief executive of Rolls-Royce, said a few words to the Rolls SUV rival recently, “We do not use mass-produced artillery shells, which limits what you can do in design , And a lot of damage to exclusivity. Rolls-Royce customers do not want to disguise the Audi Q7. ”
Rolls-Royce’s Cullinan may use the same 6.6-liter twin-turbo V-12 engine, which produces 563 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Like other Rolls-Royce models, the engine may be adjusted to produce more power if needed.
Cullinan will be available this summer and will begin delivery in 2019.
