Bentley amazed at the Frankfurt motor show when it presented the brand new Bentayga, its first-ever off-roader. Previous sibling firm and also present arc opponent Rolls-Royce is seriously creating its very own SUV, however the high-riding Roller will not make its main launching up until 2018 at the really earliest.
When it attacks the marketplace, the SUV will likely be referred to as Cullinan, the name of the biggest gem-quality ruby ever before discovered. It will certainly be constructed greatly from light weight aluminum in order to maintain weight in check, and also it will certainly use on a new space-frame framework that it will certainly not show to other version.
While the Bentayga was purportedly developed to progress off the ruined course, Rolls-Royce currently forecasts that the Cullinan will certainly be merely an all-terrain automobile, not a a full-on off-roader efficient in tackling the Rubicon path. Nonetheless, the BMW-owned vehicle manufacturer strongly asserts the soft-roader will certainly be much better compared to its Bentley-badged rival in every method.
“The Bentley SUV is plainly the No. 2; Rolls-Royce is the very best worldwide and also will certainly be when our version shows up. We will certainly bring a fantastic brand-new vehicle, and also a genuine Rolls Royce right into the marketplace,” vowed firm Chief Executive Officer Torsten Müller-Ötvös on the subsidiaries of the Frankfurt Electric motor Program.
Bentley has actually not released a main reaction to the exec’s remarks.
Specifically when we’ll see the Cullinan in the steel is anybody’s rate this factor. Extra information will certainly be released in the following couple of months, as well as it’s not as well unlikely to hypothesize Rolls-Royce will certainly sneak peek the SUV with a very finely veiled principle in the years to coming.
Rolls-Royce isn’t really the only high-end auto manufacturer that’s preparing to tackle the Bentayga in the hotly-contested super-SUV sector. The manufacturing variation of the Lamborghini Urus will certainly land in about 2018, and also Aston Martin has actually verified it will certainly sign up with the sector prior to the years wanes.
