Rolls-Royce officially previewed a set of new pictures of Project Cullinan, the automaker’s effort to provide ultra-luxury and brick-like aerodynamics in an SUV type element. These images mark the very first time we have actually seen Project Cullinan in its production body, albeit outfitted with swirly camouflage. All our previous spy pictures revealed a Phantom with a ludicrous wing, for instance. These new pictures conceal the wagon-like characteristics of the rear, however are a strong indication that Rolls has completed the Cullinan’s design.
The popular slatted grille and enforcing headlights are the huge style calling cards, however even with the camouflage, the upright fascia and long hood stand apart as distinguishing styling characteristics. Even the mirrors state “Rolls-Royce”, sitting atop fragile stalks with substantial housings on top. We cannot think much about the Cullinan’s tail or rear haunches, so there’s still some secret yet to be known.
As these official pictures are out, we anticipate an increase of spy images in the future. As per the automaker, Cullinan will transfer to the Arctic Circle for cold-weather testing after the Christmas vacations. Later on next year, it’s off to exactly what’s most likely the SUV’s main market– the Middle East– for heat testing.
