Rolls-Royce published the date of the presentation of its first SUV CullinanMay 3, 2018
Rolls-Royce will officially introduce luxury SUV on May 10 this year. The British reported this on their official page in the microblog Twitter.
The new model is probably based on the Architecture of Luxury platform, which previously served as the basis for the Phantom limousine. It is based on a molded aluminum frame. In its development, the emphasis was on creating the effect of a “magic carpet”, which isolates the interior from unevenness and noise from the outside, also the new platform is stiffer and lighter than the previous one.
The company is still silent about the motor, but the Phantom limousine got a turbocharged V12 with a volume of 6.75 liters and a payback of 570 horsepower. In pair with it the eight-speed automatic transmission ZF works. It is expected that Cullinan will receive exactly the same power unit, but in the all-wheel drive configuration.
Recall that Cullinan – is the name of the largest diamond in the world, mined in South Africa in the distant 1905. When it was cut, 2 huge, 7 large and 96 small diamonds were created with a total mass of 1,063.65 carats.
The estimated cost of an off-road car Rolls-Royce will be about 300 000 US dollars. He will compete, first of all, with Bentley Bentayga.
